For over forty years now, Laibach has captivated its audience with totalitarian symbolism and a constantly shifting and improbable range of musical styles from industrial to rock and neo-classical music. Laibach not only critically question political thought structures, but equally examine state and religious power systems. Additionally, culture-industrial marketing mechanisms and ideological manipulation strategies of popular culture firmly belong to their self-appointed critical mission. In this volume, essays in English and German scrutinize the elusive phenomenon that is Laibach using a variety of perspectives and approaches, ranging from the group's industrial beginnings in the early 1980s up to its 2022 project, the symphonic work Alamut.
