It’s a domino effect these days… the singer and mastermind of the pioneering German EBM,  dark-electro trio Placebo Effect suddenly died.

Formed in the late ‘80s they had a great influence on several electro-industrial acts around Germany at the time and their 1992 debut album ‘Galleries Of Pain’ on Danse Macabre and produced by Das Ich’s Bruno Kramm, gained general critical acclaim and a strong group of followers

Disbanded in 1995, Placebo Effect reformed in 2014 to play live at Leipzig Wave Gothic Treffen.

Rest In Peace Achim!
