Kultprodukt Concert Agency has been working to get some more German music into Finland lately. With a recent show by Lord of the Lost at On the Rocks, now it’s time for Helsinki to experience Unzucht. The band will play at On the Rocks on April 7th, 2017, and here’s a bit of information, if you’re still on the fence about whether or not to go!
1. First off, tell us a bit about yourselves?
Der Schulz: We are four friends from Germany who founded a dark rock band 7 years ago. In our first year we’ve played live already because of our 4-track demo CD – festivals like Masters of Rock (CZ), the M’era Luna, and Rockharz (D). We’ve toured through Germany and Europe with Bands like Puddle of Mudd, Eisbrecher, Subway to Sally, Saltatio Mortis, and Oomph! and now we’ve released our forth album, Neuntöter, which made it up to number 16 in the German album charts. And we love beer and Jack Daniels of course 😉
2. For anyone who hasn’t heard your music before, can tell us a little bit about your sound?
Der Schulz: The Unzucht sounds like the Unzucht. We’ve got our very unique style of music, which mixes up dark rock, industrial, and metal, but also wavy and big melody lines with deep German lyrics. Somewhere in between HIM, Rammstein, and Meshuggah.
3. Have you ever played in Finland before? If so, what’s your best/worst memory there? If not, is there anything you’re interested in or excited about in playing there?
Der Schulz: It’s the first time ever that we’re gonna play in Finland and we’re pretty excited about it. We’re really looking forward to meet up the Finnish people, to see how they like our music, and to party with them. And I’ve heard so many good things about Helsinki – I would love to see a bit of it.
4. What do you think is going to be the highlight of the upcoming show?
Der Schulz: To hear the Finnish crowd sing along with us in German and me dying by trying to pronounce Finnish 😉
5. Do you have any last words for potential viewers about the upcoming shows?
Der Schulz: Don’t miss our show, we are a fucking earthquake and one fine day you can say, “I was already there, when the Unzucht played their first show ever in Finland and had some beers with them.”
