KMFDM and 3D Realms have been in communication for several months, and after Prey was shown to them in Seattle, both parties knew that this was a collaboration that just had to happen.
KMFDM was formed in Paris in 1984 by Sascha Koneitzko and Udo Sturm-currently, the band is based in Seattle.
KMFDM stands for the German phrase "kein mehrheit fur die mitleid," which, roughly translated, means "no pity for the majority." To date, the band has released 9 major albums, culminating in their recently released Symbols.

since 1984, KMFDM has been cutting, scraping and ripping the system with it's cathartic use of electronics, snapping guitars, and a continual reminder for the public to trash common knowledge and bandwagon thought for unconventional thinking which aids in questioning the system.
KMFDM began to spread their word through the musical sermons of "murder," "more and faster," "en esch," "thumb thumb" and "more and faster," which they released as a single and a video.
KMFDM had a underground cult of worshippers, but it wasn't until the breakthrough album, 'angst' that they began to tap into the mainstream.

KMFDM -- the name is actually an acronym for a pidgen Germany phrase that means "no pity for the majority" -- made their mark by setting their "ultra heavy beat" to aggressive lyrics decrying the false gods of commercial idolization and the continued tyranny of the human spirit by governmental thugs in jackboots.
KMFDM appeared to go on hiatus; in fact a press release from early 1999 summed up the state of the group in three words: "KMFDM is dead." Meanwhile, Sascha worked with Tim Skold on the Universal Records-backed MDFMK project.
The members of KMFDM on the tour were Raymond Watts, Lucia, Sascha and Raymond's Pig band: Jules "Joolz" Hodgson and Steve White on guitar with Andy Selway on drums.

 Moving Hands Music Magazine - KMFDM, Attak
KMFDM are back with a new album and a line-up which includes the old shotgun messiah himself Tim Skold, alongside Ministry's Bill Rieflin and Drill's Lucia Cifarelli.
The contributions of Lucia Cifarelli are noteworthy, and her addition to KMFDM I'm sure, will prove to be one of the best things that has happened to this band.
Not that KMFDM has ever been known for great lyrics, but Skold's sound like he should be writing for Creed or Nickelback.

 DVD Talk > Reviews > KMFDM - WWIII Tour 2003
KMFDM are all about the confrontation of conformity and Watt's makes sure that any philosophical dogma they wish to defend gets a regular repetition in their songs.
KMFDM are pounding peace and prosperity, using the same sledgehammer approach the Establishment wields (only in audible form) to get their well-considered point across.
Though the direction throughout is not half as inventive or electrifying as the band and fans of their former incarnations may balk at the lack of early songs, this is still a wonderful document of an extraordinary group in full sonic thunder.

 KMFDM 1992
KMFDM's most recent album Money is definitely high on my list of most listened to albums at the moment, which is not all that surprising since Godlike, Split/Piggybank and Virus have also been and still are on my most played list.
I do collaborate with a few people, not in terms of KMFDM, KMFDM is at a stage that it doesn't make sense to have other producers or people involved, we just have like a technical staff who are perfectly capable of handling recording.
Speaking for KMFDM, we are probably one of the only Drug-free bands, apart from En Esch who loves Vodka, he drinks Vodka like other people drink soda, but I mean if we did drugs we gave it up a long time ago, the majority of the band didn't take drugs at any time.

 kmfdm: industrial gothic music reviews at vampirefreaks.com
For those of you who are new to KMFDM (very few, if any) you should know that this German group has been around for a while, being one of the pioneers of the industrial genre along with Skinny Puppy et al.
The entire song is comprised of KMFDM trashing itself by yelling out of tune ontop of a monotonous, shallow drop beat that takes the song in no direction whatsoever.
Despite all this, KMFDM fans should not be discouraged from buying this CD as many of the songs show promise of filling your industrial appetite.

 Chaos Control Digizine : KMFDM
With a KMFDM album, you always know what you're going to get, yet at the same time will always be surprised.
But that's interesting, because KMFDM was always on a quest for the perfect mix of man and machine for the ultimate brutality.
KMFDM always felt like it was sort of my baby, and I wouldn't have it eaten by the lions.

 Encyclopedia Gothica: KMFDM
KMFDM out of loyalty and commitment to Wax Trax!, And especially to the founders/owners jIm Nash And Dannie Flesher, resigned a new contract in the hopes that Wax Trax!'s life could be extended with help from outside.
In early '93, KMFDM commenced to record "angst" in Chicago and as soon as that was done and over, remixed the "naive" album which, in its current form, had to be discontinued due to copyright issues with a sample of Carl Orff'S 'O Fortuna' which was used on the original version of the song 'liebeslied'.
KMFDM recorded "xtort" in Chicago in late '95 and early '96 and Sascha once again packed up and moved out west to seattle.

The same year, KMFDM issued its debut release, Opium, but Sturm exited the group shortly thereafter (around the same time, Konietzko was joined by drummer En Esch, who would remain with the group from then on out).
The tour successfully established KMFDM as a band to watch in the industrial underground, as they returned back to Europe after the tour's completion to work on their fifth full-length release overall, 1990's Naïve.
What followed for KMFDM were some of its best-known and strongest releases: 1993's Angst (which earned the group their first real exposure on MTV via the video clip for the track "Drug Against War"), 1995's Nihil, and 1996's XTORT.

 MSJ-Interview With Sascha Konietzko of KMFDM
The answer is that KMFDM traditionally has a wider variety of sounds and sonic elements on their records than your standard industrial band.
That diversity is kind of KMFDM's specialty and that is probably the reason why KMFDM has been holding out for so long.
I think our approach is different because 5 out of 6 members of KMFDM are European and as Europeans, we were brought up in a much more politicized climate than young Americans were.

 KMFDM "ATTACK" - KMFDM "BOOTS"
It felt like KMFDM had returned to it's original roots, and that the last 6 years of Evolution and Growth for the band deemed fruitless.
KMFDM has a whole has always been known for it's "out in the open" approach to metaphor world problems and situations in it's lyrics, and the lyrics on ATTAK prove no different.
If Sascha Konietzko and KMFDM whish to still achieve the status that was hoped for with the MDFMK project, they should have no problem attaining it with this album.

KMFDM produced and mixed Hau Ruck themselves and were even involved in the mastering process guaranteeing a sonic redefining of their signature sound.
KMFDM continue to create ultra heavy beats with a sly dose of political irony on their cover of DAF's dancefloor classic “Der Mussolini.” “Ansage” closes out the disc with a German spoken word soundscape that mirrors the tone of our times.

 Interview: KMFDM - 11/3/97   (Site not responding. Last check: )
I figured it was a good idea since we were not going to be playing a lot of older material to try something new and different that we have never tried before.
They call KMFDM Techno-crossover, so while the term is essentially meaningless, I think it is better than calling our music Industrial.
The tour package of KMFDM and Pig was brought up earlier this year and it ended up being the best option.

 TrouserPress.com :: KMFDM
The band (whose name is, among other things, an acronym for Kleine Mitleid für Das Mehrheit — "no pity for the majority," the punchline to a German joke that doesn't translate) entered the '90s with only two of its original members remaining: En Esch (vocals, drums, guitar) and leader Sascha Konietzko (electronics, vocals).
KMFDM began adding more guitars and personal (as opposed to political) angst to its music on Naïve.
More open to new influences than many electro-industrial peers, KMFDM mixed the tag-team raps of the Beastie Boys with grand orchestral samples to come up with the catchy title track to Money, a wandering concept album about baby boomers, fundamentalists and others battling for the minds of the younger generation.

KMFDM produced and mixed the album themselves and were even involved in the mastering process guaranteeing a sonic redefining of their signature sound.

 KMFDM: NEWS
KMFDM, the ardent guardians of the ‘Ultra Heavy Beat’, have returned with a trend-killing, ravenous, all-out assault called WWIII.
2003 sees KMFDM aptly dubbed ‘rock with a conscience’; a band that breathes as a cohesive unit, yet is not limited in vision or experience.
KMFDM is not a band to speak bold words without the muscle to back itself up, therefore an extensive North American tour is already slated to promote the release of WWIII throughout October & November (36 shows in 40 days).
