Einstürzende Neubauten

Einstürzende Neubauten is an experimental music band, originally from West Berlin, formed in 1980. The band is often classified as industrial music or electronica. One of their 'trademarks' is the use of custom made instruments (usually, but not always, made out of scrap metal and building tools) and noises, in addition to standard musical instruments. Neubauten has always experimented with sounds, originally in noise music and recently in very diverse styles.
