Marilyn Manson (born as Brian Hugh Warner on January 5, 1969) is the lead singer of the Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States-based shock rock group of the same name. Warner chose the name, a combination of Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson, to illustrate what he considered to be the extreme dualism of late 20th century American culture.

Influenced by such artists as PowerPussy, This Morn' Omina, Hocico, Synapscape, Asche, Oil 10, and Autechre, Cervello Elettronico has performed live all over North America and Europe and shared the bill with a multitude of well-known industrial and power noise acts.
In 1997 Andy LaPlegua established the project, "Icon of Coil", which was primarily a concept built around a logo, graphic design and music. Soon after the inception, the music turned out to be the most important part of the concept and LaPlegua invited Sebastian R. komor, who he had worked with before on the project "Sector 9", (now called "Moonitor") in 1996, to work with him on the project as a live member. After just a couple of gigs and the release of IoC’s first single, "Shallow Nation", Seb became a full-time member.
Hocico is a Mexican dark electro band. The band was officially formed in Mexico City, Mexico in 1993 by Erk Aicrag (lyrics & vocals) and Racso Agroyam (programming), but both cousins had been making electronic music since they were fifteen years old. The names are anagrams of the real names Erik Garcia and Oscar Mayorga. Their music can be described as dark and aggressive electronica or more specifically as aggrotech. The lyrics are commonly in English, however, they are sometimes in Spanish. Their logo is a six legged spider with an H on its back.
Sebastian Hoff a.k.a. Promo was born on the 12th of April 1976, and started mixing soon after ;).
When he was 19 years old, he already had a hit on the compilation album Thunderdome IX - The Revenge Of The Mummy, his alias being Section-8 (together with The Prophet). A second hit was a remix of the song "Don't Speak" by No Doubt, but he mainly produced this track to bully his brother who played in a rockband.
Pig & Dan are made up on producers Dan Duncan & Igor Tchkotoua (Pig). They met a number of years ago and from there have developed an extremly solid and fruitful partnership. After a few months of producing together they signed a deal with Dutch label, Sadie Records, they began to enter into the market and gain success. This gave the duo a boost and they started to produce two/three tunes a week. They then decided that it would be a good idea to build their own record company 'Submission' and work together with Sadie to create a bigger market.
