The Berzerker was an extreme metal band from Melbourne, Australia. The band's music, heavily influenced by older death metal and grindcore, can be characterised as a fusion of these with industrial metal, speedcore, and gabba. The band's founding member Luke Kenny describes the band's style as industrial death metal.Read More...
The Berzerker has produced five full length albums, The Berzerker (2000), Dissimulate (2002), World of Lies (2005), Animosity (2007) and The Reawakening (2008). These were released through Earache Records, with the exception of the latest album, which was released through Berserker Industries. During the early part of their career as a live act, band members were identified only as The Vocalist, The Guitarist, The Bassist and The Drummer, distinguishable on stage only by the masks they wore. However, the group has since abandoned this device.
A DVD documentary, The Principles and Practices of The Berzerker (2004), includes several hours of live concert footage, as well as the first public images of the band members without their masks.
Most of the band's music videos have been banned from broadcast for reasons such as the possible epileptic fit-inducing imagery contained in the video "Forever", and the horrific imagery of "Reality". The latter features graphic images of cadavers and body parts, along with appearances from the band themselves.

- LyricsAlways living on the line of what you think is right or wrong
There was a time when even I could not bear to be alone
Needing someone or something that is not mine to call my own
To have and hold
Severing the only line of trust that you once thought you had
- LyricsThe uncreative juices flow from all but a selective few
And even those they tend to be wasted
You have taken pride in a life form that you think you know
But what you do not know is it's rotting
It is so unfortunate that this is how our world must be
- LyricsThere'll be a time
Where I can take what they've taught and make it work
THIS would be a better place if you could free you mind of thought
THOUGH to be in this place life, has abandoned you
WORLD that we now live in has changed so rapidly
- LyricsI have often thought to myself
Why some people don't eat flesh?
Is it the morals that we're taught
Lurking deep beneath our skin?
Bodies that are constant sources
- LyricsIn the brain we've found a role
Detach your life from mind control
Evade life of being ruled
the parts that lie unused
