Zero Defects were a pioneer EBM band from Hamburg, Germany formed in 1991 by Sascha Kurz and Thorsten Marx. The duo circulated their professionally self-produced demo tape, Into Your Lunatic Brain, and played several energetic live performances in the early 90's that attracted them a strong following and notoriety in little time. They were quickly snapped up and enthusiastically signed by the Zoth Ommog label where they released an EP and three full-length albums before the label ultimately collapsed in 1999.Read More...
During that time they performed well over fifty shows across Germany and at several international festivals to very receptive audiences. Best known for their club hit "Duracell" featuring a sound sample from a commercial of that brand, Zero Defects were instrumental in moving the early EBM sound towards a more technical electronic direction. With the collapse of their label the duo continued the evolution of their musical style, ultimately abandoning EBM and the Zero Defects moniker and adopting more of a hardcore, hard-trance rave music style.
