Founded in 2000 as Maggotcunt before changing their name in 2002, Debauchery was initially formed by current vocalist, guitarist, and bassist Thomas Gurrath and former drummer Dani.

The band's themes consist mainly of war and death, often involving the fictional god Khorne from the science fiction universe Warhammer 40,000 and its followers.

Gurrath was formerly a philosophy teacher at a Stuttgart high school until his other job in Debauchery was discovered in May 2010. He was given the choice between keeping his teaching job or his band, and chose the latter.[1]

Debauchery has performed many covers of songs by other artists, such as Rammstein, Slayer, and even The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
