Hailing from Los Angeles, Fleischkrieg is a new take on heavy electronic music. Fusing retro-synth wave electronic overtones, with crushing guitars, topped off with haunting and aggressive vocals.
Richard Cranor (vocals): It’s definitely a bit of a throwback style to 80s goth synth, but with a harder metal edge. Very rhythmic, tribal…atmospheric. We’ve often heard it described as if Depeche Mode and Rammstein had a baby.
Thomas Crawford (guitars): I see us as a heavy goth/industrial metal group. We playfully refer to our style as “Brutalwave”. I’d also say that we’re a visual group as well. Given Richard’s video production background, we want to make sure that our music videos are engaging and exciting. And our live shows are aggressive, yet dancy.
