KMFDM
KMFDM
Active since 1984, KMFDM are pioneers in the crossover between Techno/Dance/EBM electronics and heavy metal guitar samples. Born in Germany but then relocated to the USA, KMFDM released their first demo tape in 1984 and the first album "What Do You Know Deutschland?" in 1986. Heads of the band were Sascha Konietzko and En Esch. In 2000, the band changed to name into MDFMK and tried a contract with a major company. In 2002 they were back as KMFDM without En Esch.

Rumour has it that KMFDM stands for "Kill Mother Fuckin' Depeche Mode", "Keep Madonna From Doing Music" or "Kylie Minogue Fans Don't Masturbate", but in fact it is an acronym for the nonsensical and grammatically incorrect German phrase "Kein Mehrheit Für Die Mitleid" (actually kind of a grammatical play upon words juggling with definite articles). This term can only be loosely translated into English as "No Majority For Pity" but then loses much of its irony. Thus the grammatically correct phrase "Kein Mitleid Für die Mehrheit" ("No Pity For The Majority") has emerged and is now in common use, even officially. The band now just deals with "Kein Mitleid für die Mehrheit"/"No Pity For The Majority" to avoid being asked stupid questions about what "KMFDM" means for the rest of their lives.
ohGr
ohGr
ohGr is a band formed by Nivek Ogre, of Skinny Puppy, and musician/engineer Mark Walk. Although the pedigree of the group's members might suggest otherwise, ohGr is not strictly an industrial group, as it draws heavily from elements of electro-pop, metal, and even hip hop. The sound diverges heavily from that of Ogre's earlier Skinny Puppy work, incorporating a more conventional structure as well as a lighter tone, lyrically and musically.
