About Clan Of Xymox

Clan of Xymox was formed in Amsterdam, Netherlands in 1981. Their breakthrough came with the release of “Twist of Shadows” in 1989, propelling them into the limelight with hits like “Blind Hearts” and “Obsession”, and achieving their most significant commercial success by selling over 300,000 copies globally.

Following internal disagreements, the early ’90s saw a shift in the band’s lineup and musical direction, with Moorings exploring new soundscapes that diverged from their initial darkwave style. This period was marked by experimentation but also by a decline in their U.S. popularity amid the grunge movement’s ascendancy.

A resurgence of interest in gothic rock in the late ’90s saw Ronny Moorings reviving the Clan of Xymox moniker and relocating to Germany, tapping into the burgeoning industrial music scene. Albums like “Hidden Faces” and “Creatures” from this era offered a matured sound, blending electro elements with their trademark darkwave aesthetics.
