Laibach is a Slovenian experimental music group, strongly associated with industrial, martial, and neo-classical. Laibach formed June 1, 1980 in Trbovlje, Slovenia. Laibach represents the music wing of the Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK) art collective, of which it was a founding member in 1984. The name "Laibach" is the German name for Slovenia's capital city, Ljubljana.

Controversy:
Laibach has frequently been accused of both far left and far right political stances due to their use of uniforms and totalitarian-style aesthetics and also due to the Wagnerian influence found in some of their music, notably the thunder in "Sympathy for the Devil (Time for a Change)" and releases such as Macbeth. They were also accused of being members of the neonationalism movement which reincarnates modern ideas of nationalism. Laibach always denied this strongly. Milan Fras, vocalist, is quoted as saying "We are fascists as much as Hitler was a painter" when confronted with such accusations.
Laibach is notorious for rarely stepping out of character. Some releases feature artwork by the Communist and early Dada artist/satirist, John Heartfield. Laibach concerts have sometimes aesthetically appeared as political rallies. When interviewed, they answer in wry manifestos, showing a paradoxical lust and condemnation for authority.

Cover songs:
Laibach is also known for their cover versions, which are often used to subvert the original message or intention of the song - most notable being their cover version of the song "Life is Life" on the album Opus Dei, which completely changes the meaning of the original song ("Live is Life") from the original writers' (Opus, an Austrian arena rock band) intentions. Whereas the original is a feel-good reggae anthem, Laibach's subversive interpretation twists the melody into a sinister, rolling military march. The refrain is at one instance translated into German, giving an eerie example of the sensitivity of its lyrics to context.
Other notable covers include the entirety of the Beatles album Let It Be (with the exception of the title track) and their album Sympathy for the Devil which deconstructs the Rolling Stones song of the same name with seven different covers of the song. Opus Dei (itself titled apparently in reference to their cover of Opus's reggae anthem "Live is Life") features a cover of Queen's "One Vision" with the lyrics translated into German under the title Geburt einer Nation, starkly revealing the ambiguity of lines like "One race one hope/One real decision". In NATO, they also memorably rework Europe's glam metal anthem "The Final Countdown" as a Wagnerian disco epic.
Laibach recently covered the song Ohne Dich by Rammstein in a significantly altered version. It features male and female vocals (supplied by Laibach's Milan Fras and Mina piler from the band Melodrom), as opposed to the solo male vocals in the Rammstein version. The orchestral sound of the original has been supplemented, and in some sections replaced, by a more electronic element.

Aesthetics:
Although primarily a musical group, Laibach has sometimes worked in other media. In their early years, especially before the founding of NSK, Laibach produced several works of visual art. Probably the most historically important[citation needed] was MB 84 Memorandum (1984) an image of a black cross that served as a way to advertise Laibach's appearances during a period in the 1980s when the government of Yugoslavia banned the name "Laibach".

Slovene singer and radio announcer Anja Rupel has performed with the group.

Influence:

Martial music:
Some early material by Laibach and later neoclassical releases by the bandsuch as the Macbeth releasewere influential on certain artists within the martial music genre.

Rammstein:
The popular German musical group Rammstein has acknowledged influence by both the aesthetic approach and some Laibach material. When members of Laibach were asked by an interviewer about Rammstein "stealing" from them, they responded that "Laibach does not believe in originality Therefore, Rammstein could not 'steal' much from us. They simply let themselves get inspired by our work, which is absolutely a legitimate process. We are glad that they made it. In a way, they have proven once again that a good 'copy' can make more money on the market than the 'original.' Anyhow, today we share the territory: Rammstein seem to be a kind of Laibach for adolescents and Laibach are Rammstein for 'grown-ups.'" Laibach would later provide a remix for the single release of Ohne dich by Rammstein.

Re-releases:
Out on July 9, 2007 via Laibach's own label NSK are 4 releases by the Laibach side-projects 300.000 VK and Rotor. From the electronic project Rotor featuring Mina Spiller (Melodrom/Laibach) comes "Phonophobia" and "Rotorsphere" which both combine 'modern technology effects, live-experimentations, DJ-compatible rhythms and techno-industrial mayhem' as they call it. Next is 300.000 VK with two reissues, "Hard Drive : Bill Gates" and "Paracelsus", the first holding mostly hard and fast drum'n'bass techno. "Paracelsus" from its side has been out of print for several years since its original release on 31 October 1994.

Documentaries:
Laibach has been the subject of several documentaries:
* Laibach: Pobeda Pod Suncem {Laibach: Victory Under the Sun} (1988) - Directed by Goran Gajic
* Laibach: A Film From Slovenia (1995) - Directed by Daniel Landin and Chris Bohn
* Prerokbe Ognja {Predictions of Fire} (1996) - Directed by Michael Benson

Members:
Laibachs history started in 1978 when Dejan Knez founded the band Salte Morale. After that, in 1979 Knez formed the very first Laibach (note that the official founding date is in the year 1980!). It is believed that in the first Laibach the members were only Dejan Knez and Miran Mohar. Later, Tomaz Hostnik joined the band as singer and spokesman. In the first period Laibach were a quintet, but soon after that they declared that Laibach has only four members Vier Personen. Sometimes those four members of the band were signed with their pseudonyms: Dachauer, Keller, Saliger and Eber. In the mid and late 80s, those four full time members were Dejan Knez, Milan Fras, Ervin Markoek and Ivan Novak. From time to time, some other persons, such as Nikola Sekulović, famous bass player from the Demolition Group, replaced Markoek. During the late 90s Markoek and Knez became drug addicts, and Markoek left the band. Despite that he appears on the press photos for WAT. After WAT tour Knez also left the band. Now, the oldest member is Milan Fras, because Novak joined the band later than Fras.

Members:
-Milan Fras.
-Ivan Novak.
