Bunkertor 7 is an album recorded by the German industrial act, Wumpscut. It was released in Compact Disc format on Beton Kopf Media in 1997, with the catalog number ETAH 2.[citation needed] It was released under the title Bunker Gate Seven by Metropolis Records in North America.[citation needed]

It was first distributed in Europe by Discordia, later in 1997 by Nova Tekk, and again by Connected in 2000 and 2002. There are at least ten different versions of the album (including varied artwork and track lists).[citation needed]

Bunkertor 7 was inspired by the 1981 short film by Caro/Jeunet Le bunker de la dernière rafale (a.k.a. The Bunker of the Last Gunshots). It contains samples from the movie, notably the alarm sound on "Dying culture". The images in the LP's booklet, including the cover are from the film.[citation needed]

Notable samples[edit]

Track 3, "Dying Culture" (Second Movement)", contains the alarm sound sampled from the 1981 short film by Caro/Jeunet Le bunker de la dernière rafale (The Bunker of the Last Gunshots).

Track 8, "Bunktertor 7 (Reprised)", includes a sample from the movie Kindergarten Cop. The children of the kindergarten class say "never talk to strangers" and it is looped throughout parts of the song. The sample is played at a higher speed and pitch than the direct sample.

Track 10, "Thorns", has no vocals, but contains a modified sample from the 1986 film Highlander of The Kurgan (Clancy Brown) telling the character Ramirez (Sean Connery), "Tonight you sleep in hell".
