HOUSE OF USHER


HOUSE OF USHER

The House of Usher is often referred to as the “last” Goth rock band from Germany, the same country that unleashed doomsayers Xmal Deutschland in the ‘80s. Formed in 1990 by Jorg Kleuden (vocals), Markus Pick (guitar), Ray Nottinger (bass), and Victor Constrictor (guitar, keyboards) as Tales of Despair 1919-1925, the group changed their name to the House of Usher as a tribute to horror author Edgar Allan Poe. 

The band’s literary appetite doesn’t end with their name; Kleuden likes to write short stories for each album. As with compatriots Xmal Deutschland – who were no longer together when the House of Usher debuted, thus cementing their status as Germany’s final word on Goth – dark English acts like the Mission U.K. and Joy Division were key influences. The House of Usher’s first release, Dance Hall Days Dawn Kissed, was only available on cassette.
