Excessive Force

Excessive Force is a musical side project started in 1991 by Sascha Konietzko of KMFDM and Buzz McCoy of My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult.


Excessive Force released the single, "Conquer Your House" in 1991, followed by the album Conquer Your World. After this release, McCoy had no more involvement in Excessive Force, which went on to become exclusively a KMFDM side project. In 1993, Excessive Force released the single Blitzkrieg followed by the album Gentle Death. The band is also credited with remixes on the KMFDM singles "Light" and "MDFMK".

Konietzko initially dismissed the possibility of reforming Excessive Force referring to it as "a one off that turned into a two off." However in a recent radio interview he has discussed the possibility of collaborating with Andy LaPlegua of Combichrist, Panzer Ag, and Icon of Coil on a new Excessive Force album. He also noted that there is a Canadian white supremacist band that uses the same name. Excessive Force tracks are notable for their recycling of the same lyrical phrases, many of which are referenced in the 1996 KMFDM song "Power".

On September 13, 2007, KMFDM Records announced the re-release of the entire Excessive Force back catalog, slated for November 6, 2007.
