Oomph! is a German rock band from Wolfsburg, formed in 1989. The band pioneered the Neue Deutsche Härte movement. Since the band's formation there have been no line-up changes, except for temporary personnel for live performances. They use lyrics in both English and German with a shift from mainly English songs to more German ones on recent albums with the exception of their recent Compilation albums, Delikatessen and Truth or Dare.
Sperm is the second studio album released by Oomph! in 1994. It is widely regarded as the first Neue Deutsche Härte album made, becoming a huge inspiration for bands such as Rammstein. Two singles were released off of the album, the first one being the song Breathtaker and the second one being the song Sex, for which they also released an accompanying music video.
