Eisenfunk are a Munich-based industrial trio whose 2008 self-titled album proved popular within Germany's alternative music scene, charting at number two. Originally founded in 2006 as a solo project by singer/producer Michael Mayer (not to be confused with the German techno DJ/producer affiliated with the label Kompakt), Eisenfunk made their recording debut in 2007 with the album Funkferngesteuert on the Danse Macabre sublabel Biohazzard Records. Following this initial release, Mayer recruited Arthur Stauder (electronic drums) and Toni Schulz (keyboards, samples) to join Eisenfunk and proceeded to re-record Funkferngesteuert as a trio, adding a couple new songs for good measure. Released in October 2007 as Eisenfunk, the new album steadily grew in popularity, ultimately climbing to number two on the German alternative albums chart in March 2008. Around this same time, Eisenfunk released the limited-edition EP 300 (2008), comprised primarily of remixes.
