About KMFDM

Emerging from the European underground in the 1980s, German firebrands KMFDM were part of the industrial wave that crashed the mainstream in the '90s alongside kindred spirits Nine Inch Nails, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, and Ministry. With their bold, propaganda-styled album covers and techno-metal anthems, they placed more focus on pulsing dance beats and provocative messages than their darker contemporaries. The band established their trademark style on 1986's What Do You Know, Deutschland? After an early-'90s relocation to the U.S., they began crashing clubs and dance charts with hits like "Naive" and "Juke Joint Jezebel." The group imploded following 1999's Adios, but frontman and founder Sascha Konietzko reconfigured the lineup in 2002 and continued KMFDM's streak of thought-provoking and body-moving output with notable albums such as Tohuvabohu, Kunst, Paradise, and Hyena.
