– part of the industrial movement since 1992 –
NETZ was founded inspired by electro- and industrial bands like Kraftwerk, Skinny Puppy, Clock DVA, Depeche Mode, Leaether Strip, Camouflage, Nitzer Ebb, A Split Second and Front 242. Our „abseits“ studio was first placed in Titisee Neustadt, a city in the Black Forest (Germany) right above a dental office. Later we moved to the industrial area of Heppenheim and then to Stuttgart, our current home base.
The first demo-cd „auf ewig“ was produced and recorded at the Temple Studio (Freiburg/Germany) in 1996. A small number of „Auf Ewig“ included a computer chip in the cd-tray – do you own one of these? At the end of 1997 „Auf Ewig“ was discovered by the industrial music label Ant-Zen. Later our first official cd „Werk01“ was released on Flatline Records, a sub label of Ant Zen.
