Formed in Berlin in 1994, the members of Knorkator are known throughout Germany as the pranksters of the country's rich heavy metal scene. Performing a hard-edged version of industrial metal that has earned it comparisons to Ministry, the five-piece balances the intense nature of its music with a comedic lyrical style that runs the gamut from lewd and silly, to nerdy and self-referential. In addition to the dual appeal of its music and humor, Knorkator has developed a reputation as an unpredictably wild live band. Frequently wearing over-the-top costumes, smashing televisions, destroying instruments or blasting shredded fruits and vegetables into the crowd, the band has become a can't miss act for fans of German metal.
