The cult dark electro act Wumpscut returns with a brand new EP entitled ‘Schlossgheist’. This new EP features 4 new tracks and 4 instrumentals. This new EP was released today by Metropolis Records on CD along with all digital and streaming formats.

Rudy Ratzinger serves as the mastermind behind Wumpscut, occasionally enlisting guest artists like Aleta Welling, P·A·L, and Selene for contributions, though these collaborations have been relatively limited.

Wumpscut’s initial performances trace back to the early 1990s, with Rudy Ratzinger showcasing his music in clubs throughout Bavaria and Southern Germany. In an interview from 1997, Ratzinger shared that his earliest ventures into EBM music were “Pornography” and “War Combattery,” both featured on “Defcon,” Wumpscut’s debut demo released in late 1991.

To this point, Rudy Ratzinger has produced seventeen studio albums, in addition to a collection of demos, compilation appearances, and remixes of previously deleted singles and EPs.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
