Eisbrecher Biography

Biography

Eisbrecher is a German industrial band that consists primarily of Alexx Wesselsky (Vocals) and Noel Pix (Lead Guitar/Programming), with live support of Jürgen Plangger (Guitar), Oli Pohl (Bass), René (Drums), and Maximator (Keyboards/Programming). Jürgen replaced former guitarist Felix Primc and Oli Pohl replaced former bass-guitarist, Martin Motnik. Their style belongs to the so called Neue Deutsche Härte (New German Hardness) sub-genre. After leaving Megaherz due to creative differences in 2003, Alexx Wesselsky got together with Noel Pix, who composed the synths and programming for Megaherz's albums Himmelfahrt and Kopfschuss. Eisbrecher is the brainchild of the two combining their musical ideas, concepts, and the like. Eisbrecher, like Megaherz, has a much stronger fanbase abroad (especially in the US) than in Germany itself. The band's name in translation from German means "Icebreaker". The band's lyrics and slogans often include terms of ice and sailing, such as "Ahoi" (Ahoy) and "Es wird kalt" (It's getting cold). The band's frontman, Alexx Wesselsky, often wears sailor's and military clothing in performances. The band has released debut album "Eisbrecher" in 2004. New album called "Antikörper" was released on 20th October 2006. While the self-titled debut album Eisbrecher has more of an EBM and electronic sound, its successive release, Antikörper, has a far heavier, metallic style. However, the band remains true to its roots, and the similarity between albums is not entirely unrecognisable, ensuring the group's identity remains firmly attached to the industrial metal genre. In 2008 has been released new album, which was named "Sünde". It follows the single "Kann denn Liebe Sünde Sein?", which was released in mid-summer of 2008.
