Berlin’s Knorkator are an enigmatic and extraordinary band that masterfully and exquisitely combines mischievous antagonistic hardcore metal with subtle classical elements. Their live performances are legendary, bizarre roller coasters with a colourful motley crew of styles: walking a tightrope between swearing and gentle prose on one side and on the other solemn delusions of grandeur and infantile idiocy.

Their vibrant archetypal performance caused quite a TV furore resulting in German red-top BILD asking „who let these morons on television?“.
Knorkator played over 700 gigs and 120 festivals (including Wacken Open Air, With Full Force, Highfield Festival and Bizarre), published 3 books and had their own radio show presented by Stumpen and Alf on Radio Fritz called the „Fritz Kommunikator“.

The new album “We want Mohr” is available, and be performed in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. There will also be further concerts abroad.

Singer Stumpen is the personification of this diversity, or more fittingly exorbitance. A fully tattooed bald man that curses his audience vociferously and at the drop of a hat belts out a dizzying falsetto aria.

Pianist Alf Ator is also the band’s composer and lyricist. He enjoys smashing up his instruments in rhythm and throwing foam rubber keyboards into the audience.

Guitarist Buzz Dee’s eminence and individual guitar work are the autonomous and self-determined driving force behind the band’s sound.
