Intro

A Futurepop / Synthpop band formed out of Germany.

Info

In 1996 Andy Krueger, Edgar Slatnow and Kay Hildebrandt left their former band, The Vermin, to form Melotron.

The band found success with their first single, "Dein Meister," in 1998.

Until 2007, Melotron was a band with mostly German-only lyrics (the chorus of the B-Side "2 Young 2 Die" on their inaugural single release, "Dein Meister", was sung in English amid German verses). However, on their album Propaganda, "Broken" is sung entirely in English.

Melotron has performed at a number of major electronic and industrial festivals, amongst these the Wave Gotik Treffen festival in 1999, 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2012, as well as the M'era Luna Festival in 2001, 2003, and 2005.

In the American television show Saturday Night Live, the recurring sketch "Deep House Dish" uses Melotron's song "Der Kosmonaut" as an opening.
