Oomph! [umf] slang = energetic, sex appeal, punch, vitality, exciting
OOMPH! are pioneers, visionaries, and artists. For a quarter of a century, they’ve been following their own musical path. They’ve never been afraid to fuse other influences into their own version of hard rock. Their determination has been rewarded with their own niche sound somewhere between metal, industrial, EBM, and gothic, as well as receiving gold and platinum awards. For years, their albums have been storming the charts with “Augen Auf!” even reaching number one. Despite their German lyrics, they’ve also made a stir in the USA.
