DIE KRUPPS: II, The Final Option 2LP Vinyl

from Artoffact Records

One of the most successful Die Krupps albums ever, The Final Option includes some of the band's biggest hits, including Fatherland, To the Hilt, and Bloodsuckers. The album was released in 1993 and marked Die Krupps' full transition into a metal-industrial outfit, complete with raging riffs, Juergen Engler's distinctive vocals, and synths high in the mix.

At the time of its release, Engler was no newcomer to the metal world. He ran his own metal label (Atom H) and had released albums by Accuser, Protector, Rumble Militia and many others. Accuser's members even helped out on the previous album (I) and were initial touring members, later to be replaced by Lee Altus (Heathen, Exodus) for live guitars. The Final Option truly marked the emergence of a new style, one that later would be dubbed industrial-metal, but which at the time was a nameless, blood-thirsty beast.

This double vinyl reissue includes 11 bonus remixes by THE SISTERS OF MERCY, FAITH NO MORE, CARCASS, PARADISE LOST, EINSTURZENDE NEUBAUTEN, KMFDM, CHARLIE CLOUSER, and many more; the package is presented in a gorgeous gatefold sleeve, and all audio has been remastered for the vinyl format.
