Melotron is a futurepop and synthpop band from Germany.[1] In 1996 Andy Krueger, Edgar Slatnow and Kay Hildebrandt left their former band, The Vermin, to form Melotron.[2] The band found success with their first single, "Dein Meister," in 1998.

Until 2007, Melotron was a band with German-only lyrics. However, in their album Propaganda, "Broken" is sung entirely in English.

Melotron has performed at a number of major electronic and industrial festivals, amongst these the Wave Gotik Treffen festival in 1999,[3] 2003,[4] 2004,[5] 2005,[6] and 2012, and the M'era Luna Festival in 2001, 2003, and 2005.[7]

In the American television show Saturday Night Live, the recurring sketch "Deep House Dish" uses Melotron's song "Der Kosmonaut" as an opening.
