A German hard rock band
, founded in 1993. Notable songs include "Kopfschuss" (Headshot), "Gott Sein" (To Be God), and "Freiflug" (Freeflight).
They're often compared to Rammstein
, though Megaherz is quite different. With more emphasis on guitar
s than electronics
, their sound is quite a bit noisier. The lyrics
are more varied than Rammstein
's; topics range from the bombastic rage of "Totet den DJ
" (Kill the DJ
) to the quiet (relatively) emotion
of "Freiflug" to Grimm's Fairy Tales
themes are especially prevalent in Herzwerk II.
While fairly popular in Germany
, they have yet to get much exposure in the United States
. Their song "Perfekt Droge" was supposed to be on a compilation
with a US release, but I have not been able to find anything more about it.
In June 2004, the band finally got an album
released in America
: Wer Bist Du
, retitled to Eins
. One of their earliest releases, it contains the infamous
", a song which is often mistakenly labeled as Rammstein. The liner notes
lack lyrics, to many people's dismay, but it is said to be otherwise complete. I still haven't been able to find it.
