Engelsstaub is a German dark wave band, founded in 1992 by Mark Hofmann as a follow-up to his previous band Les Fleurs du Mal.

Music[edit]

Engelsstaub's music leans toward the neofolk/neo-medieval end of the gothic spectrum, with stylistic similarities to bands like Ataraxia, The Dreamside and Faith and the Muse.

Biography[edit]

Hofmann began the band in 1992 as a solo project, but after releasing the 7" single Unholy was joined by his sister Silke Hofmann and Polish musician Janusz Zaremba, with whom he also co-founded the independent record label Apollyon.
