is a kunstwort
of the components wert and stahl. it was coined in november 1998,
with the sole intent of being prominent.
it previously was the name of my band and now is my universal nickname, too.
my real name is sebastian ivo hartmann. the broad spectrum of my abilities and interests
(and surely because i am the son of teachers) makes me a
people suffering from intelligence-deficiency often experience me as supercilious.
as i recently found out, it is simply an effect of my lack of empathy towards unfamiliar persons. (so they are just being dumb and disrespectful).
i am a proud heterosexual male of caucasian descent and a disciple of the pastafarian belief and i tolerate the church of satan. additionally, i'm an antihumanist. ich spreche normalerweise deutsch.
this page is not a blog. it is a fragmented codex of my band's output.
Remember when you did something for the first time? Well, i do. Ofcourse, from a professional view, there is
always a little pain involved in the first time, but the initial thought just counts. Like a seed.
So here it is. The very first recording of the Wertstahl prototype, called CombatLinkK, created in 1991. When First Words
was recorded directly to tape, in 1993 we had no idea of how we could achieve professionality, so brace yourselves. This is
the rough shit.
The peeps in Hacknet appreciated the quality of my sounds by using one in their game.
Keep up the great work!
For your ultimate chilled layedbackness, i stirred together these fine tunes:
Park your Panzer in the bush and sip a beer!
Industry is futile. The corrosion of subculture will fuck everything up. Ev. ery. thin. g!

Awakening of the Weird Species
A generous 3x MP3 download offering - super fresh stuff!
From below the melting permafrost Awakening of the Weird Species comes to you as a gift from the nice folks in Sethnefer,
Fleischdolls and Wertstahl. It is a little appetizer for your ears and minds of what to expect in 2016. These are not just ordinary remixes,
but the result of long time spiritual connectedness.
mnt.mn, producer of Fleischdolls was so nice to hack together some few lines of code, so i can show you how the excellent guitars* of Sethnefer,
the freshness of Fleischdolls-Sound and the weirdness of Wertstahls' intense moments of highest concentration work together elegantly.

*("Organe Und Gewebe" by Fleischdolls also contains guitars by Sethnefer!)
