About Laibach

Slovenian group Laibach's music, performances, and entire aesthetic have been immensely influential across nearly the entire genre of industrial music, especially the martial industrial style. Mocking fascism with their music's Wagnerian thunder and military attire, the collective's live shows portray rock concerts as absurd political rallies. While early recordings, such as the group's self-titled 1985 effort, were more experimental, Laibach became more popular when they started incorporating covers of well-known rock songs on 1987's Opus Dei. Their music became more techno-influenced on early-'90s releases such as 1992's Kapital, while 1996's Jesus Christ Superstars was heavier on guitars. During the 21st century, they have interpreted national anthems (Volk, 2006) and show tunes (The Sound of Music, 2018), in addition to performing historic concerts in Korea. They returned to noisy, experimental industrial with Sketches of the Red Districts and released the dystopian soundtrack Iron Sky: The Coming Race, both in 2023.
