Unheilig (German for "Unholy") is a German band that features a variety of influences including various pop and electronic styles as well as harder, nihilistic hard rock. In 1999, together with Grant Stevens and José Alvarez-Brill (also of Wolfsheim, Joachim Witt, and De/Vision), the foundation for Unheilig came into being from a dark vision of singer Der Graf (born Bernd Heinrich Graf). Their songs have fused heavy guitars, dancable beats, and infectious synth-driven melodies with Der Graf's brooding croon and have met with considerable success. The band principally consists of Der Graf ("The Count") along with various musical partners.
