Biography

Kaizers Orchestra saw light in the year 2000, their debut record "Ompa Til Du Dør" was released in Norway in September 2001, on a very small one-man label. Nobody, except maybe the bandmembers themselves, had expected the breakthrough that was to follow.

At that time the band was unknown on the local music scene, but their energetic live-shows and the strong ... Read more in Amazon's Kaizers Orchestra Store

Format: Audio CD
I first got this album when I was visiting my g/f in Norway and fell in love with. My Norsk is awful at best, but it does not matter. With the music and Janove Ottesen's lyrics/singing, it just sounds good. I now know what most of the songs are, there are a lot of fan sites that have the English translations. "170" is one of my favourite tracks on the album, very haunting and goes with the lyrics perfectly. It is about a soldier that is sent from the trenches to see if it is alrite to move forward...at the end of the song it goes..."170 is it clear, is it clear? We're waiting for your report"
They seem to be obsessed with the Mafia and Russian Roulette...but it all makes for a great song. The price is high to get it, as it is a Scandinavian only release, but well worth the money. Every song on the album is top-notch. It has a lot of Eastern European folk influence, but mixed with the assorted junk they beat on with crowbars (oildrums, wheels, etc) blends together nicely. On other releases the b-sides are live and all the songs sounds good, if not better than the album version.
They just signed with a major label, so their 3rd album with be available Europe wide when it released. Ompa Til Du Dør will be tough to top.

A Norwegian band singing in Norwegain.. you may think how can this be great? Instruments like oilbarrels, wheelrims and pumporgan may sound strange, but this band has made one of Norway's best rock albums ever. Check it out to find out more, you wont regret.

Norwegiann "Balkan Rock" band.

Sounds great, even though the band claim they bought all their instruments

on fleemarked.

Sounds a lot like Tom Waits, only happy!

Ironicly their happy songs are about recistanse during WW2

I just want to say that I agree with the other two, Kaizers really has their own kind of music, and it is just spectacular! In combination with their extravagant live-shows, it makes a solid base for their HUGE fan-base around Europe.

Tom Waits approved. 25 July 2007
By B. Ziff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is simply fantastic. From it's obvious Tom Waits and Eastern European Folk influences to the accordions, oil drums, pump organ sound, what else can you really ask for? Besides being the best selling scandinavian language record of all time, this album has all the elements needed for a drunken night on the town. From Bak et Halleluja's sheer punk mad accordion riff to Mr. Kaizer Hans Constanze and Meg's end of the world party feel, this album has found it's way into at least one more punks heart.

Something original, melodic, and just overall a wonderful album. 8 May 2009
By Capn Chlamydia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I will admit, at first I was highly disappointed with this album. The only reason why was that the first and only song I heard before getting this album was Bak Et Hallelujah, which I could not stop listening to. I was expecting a fast paced, Nordic orchestral album. Besides Bak Et Hallelujah, the songs are far more based on slower melodies. After giving it my first full play through to get over the whole "this isn't what I expected" phase, I listened to it the next day straight through with my expectations changed...and then again...and then another time, and the cycle just keeps going. The album is incredible, and if you can find a translation to the lyrics, they are truly incredible lyrics. I would recommend this album to anyone who is looking for something new, something exciting, something just a bit out of the ordinary. They use a beautiful combination of Oil Drums, accordion, and I believe what I'm hearing on a lot of songs is a banjo, but I could be wrong. Bottom line, this album is great and there isn't one track I ever feel I should just skip over on a play through.
Fantastic Album 18 Jan. 2011
By T. Lev - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I want to learn Norwegian, just so I can further appreciate the cleverness present in Kaizers Orchestra's lyrics and music. A great album--in a sort of gypsy-punk style--that revolves around a mafia and some of its members, it has a fantastic flow, much like a good novel. Give them a listen if you have the chance.

So far everything I have heard from Kaizers Orchestra is mind blowing. I hope to be able to see them live someday.
