They had started experimenting with industrial and dark electronic sounds in the early 2010 and released their first songs shortly afterwards. The band quickly abandoned their original ambient/martial fascinations and currently their style is pure dark/harsh electro. The lyrics oscillate around love, hate, social alienation and dark side of religion. So far Unsinn has created remixes for groups like H.Exe, RSM and Stian Shiver. They also appeared on Halotan Sounds 1.0 compilation, along with the leading Polish industrial bands.

After graduating law in 2006. few years afterwards Alex decided to show middle finger to the office, papers, suits and ties and to turn to his biggest passion in life - electronic music. Growing up as a kid in a war in ex Yugoslavia there was only one right name for this project and that is Kriegshund. The word ‘’Kriegshund’’ comes from German language, translated to English it means ‘’War Dog’‘. Reasons for creating Kriegshund can be summarized in one brilliant quote from French poet Victor Hugo (1802-1885): ‘’Music expresses that which cannot be put into words, and that which cannot remain silent’‘

Track 01: Benedicamus Domino
Composer: Anonymous (medieval)
Style: Medieval-Electro
Lyrics: Instrumental

Track 02: Counter-Revolutionary
Composer: Emerson Olaf
Style: Electro Rock

All we say, all we do makes us what we are
A better choice, the hardest move
You have to sacrifice
The modern beast of selfishness
Lies and says you're free
But deep inside you really know
The way you have to be

All feelings in your heart
All memories that you've got
The gift you must hold dear
The existence of your soul

Trials to be alive, to fly against the wind
It is hard to keep the fight opposite the world
Material thoughts to break the faith
You ought to resist
The Truth is there for you, you know it

Track 03: Dystopia
Composer: Emerson Olaf
Style: Futurepop / Synthpop
Having the future in our hands we disagree to a world that runs to the end
control of mind, down on your knees, like 1984, I want to set us free
Technology, war, but "peace" they will say, preparing their bombs to use anyway
We are in front of a wall, no choice for now The rain started to fall

How could we ever find our way at this artificial reality
Feeling the darkness and despair, I'm dying
Searching for answers everyday we finally find the Creator
Face the secret or step behind, we should decide

Track 04: Dreams
Composer: Emerson Olaf
Style: Futurepop / Synthpop
Dreams seem to be so distant
No strength to tries, impossible to live
The sky is blue, you feel the wind
the perfect landscape but you're alone in paradise. 
All the castles, all the the magic, the light and that special feeling at night
The last kiss, the last embrace, everything had it's end
then nothing can stand, becoming loneliness

Forever dreams will live, in the place you can still reach
Always being true, forever
Through the pain and loneliness, having strength out of sadness
The dreams survive forever

Track 05: Ceinwyn
Composer: Melody: Cosmicman / Lyrics and vocal melody: Emerson Olaf / Arrangement: Emerson Olaf
Style: Gothic Synthpop / Electrogoth
With you, forever, nothing can't stop us now
All dreams, I've dreamt, waiting for you
When I go wrong, your voice is like a song
That tells to me the truth I cannot see

You are my soul, you are my life
I couldn't live without your smile
So passionately, you run to me
Filling the emptiness I feel
You're by my side, nothing to hide
All lies we leave aside
Forever you, no other way
You say the words that I can't say

My promise, you have that I will never leave
Against the world, it's just you and me
Sei mein Licht egal wo ich bin
Mein herz für dich Ich bin nichts ohne dich

CYBER10 Dark Nights - Christian Gothic from Brazil (2010)

Christian Gothic bands from Brazil....rare, very rare, almost impossible to find. Anyway, I've found, at least, some track which we can consider "gothic", same if the band is not exactly included in this genre.
