Coppelius is a German band which plays metal on drums, double bass, cello and clarinet. Their name is taken from E.T.A. Hoffmann’s "Der Sandmann". Their logo consists of a top hat with the word "Coppelius" underneath. The band members are Max Coppella (clarinet and vocals), Comte Caspar (clarinet, vocals, harpsichord), Graf Lindorf (cello, vocals), Sissy Voss (double bass), Nobusama (drums) and Bastille (Butler, vocals). They are often also accompanied by Prof. Mosch Terpin (technician and harpsichord). On stage they wear formal, old-fashioned clothes, inspired mainly by the Victorian era like many of their songs. This is why they are often referred to as a Steampunk band.
