Hanzel Und Gretyl have been leading lights of the industrial underground since 1993, combining the aggressive elements of the New York hardcore electronic sound that spawned Industrial Strength records with that gritty German sound which inspired bands like Rammstein and KMFDM. Original members since the beginning are the demonic duo of guitarists and vocalists Kaiser Von Loopy and Vas Kallas and they are joined by drummer Jordan Marchini.
Born from the ashes of the American industrial dance sound, and with their early lineup including Revolting Cocks member Mark Baker, Hanzel Und Gretyl have remained true to the sound of industrial aggression since the early nineties, and have released eight studio albums to great success. Their 2003 album ‘Uber Alles’ receiving a 4 star review in Kerrang magazine, and 2004’s ‘Scheissmessiah’ being hailed by Revolver Magazine as one of the essential industrial albums.
Throughout their years, Hanzel Und Gretyl have performed with such bands as Prong, Marilyn Manson, Ministry, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Bella Morte, Cradle of Filth and Rammstein’s first American headlining tour!
Now they are on their way to Australia for their first tour here, and will headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide and Brisbane, bringing thei sonic intensity and visual shock value which has earned them loyal audiences worldwide throughout their career spanning almost twenty years.
