“Als Wären Wir Für Immer” is a 2011 mini-album from the German Industrial outfit, their first release with exclusively new material since 1997. With this mini-album, DIE KRUPPS are breaking new ground, without denying their roots or moving away from their own unique sound. Dance floor killers meet groove monsters, moving through the room like a steamroller… catchy melodies, massive hooks and lyrics with a message are DIE KRUPPS trademarks, and this album proves it again: body and mind are in perfect synchronicity.

Their forthcoming release “The Final Option + The Final Remixes” is being presented as a deluxe re-issue 2 CD set in a high-quality premium digipak. This album was one of the most influential albums of the early 90s, many say that this album actually invented the genre “Electro Metal”!!! Included is a full length bonus CD featuring many remixes of the most famous acts from the fields of Electro, Gothic und Metal! Also included are extensive liner notes containing rarely known background information and pictures of this revolutionary era of DIE KRUPPS!
