The group's proper debut album, the Rammstein
-esque Wer Bist Du?, was released in 1997, followed by Kopfschuss in 1998 and Himmelfahrt in 2000. When Gegerle left in 2001, new drummer Jürgen Schlachter (ex-Keilerkopf
) was brought into the band one year later, along with guitarist Oliver Pohl (ex-bassist of Twelve After Elf who had initially been brought in as a touring replacement for a sick Seibert). The band's fourth album, Herzwerk II, was released in 2002.
The next year saw another major change in the band's lineup: Pohl left after only one year, while keyboardist Seibert and singer Wesselsky left to form the new band Eisbrecher
(which Pohl joined later in 2008). With new singer Mathias "Jablonski" Elsholz (another ex-Twelve After Elf recruit) on board, Megaherz released the album 5 through S.A.D. Music in 2004, but there were more lineup changes the next year: Elsholz left, while guitarist Roland Vencelj joined the group. Drummer Jürgen Schlachter exited the band as well and was replaced by the returning Frank Gegerle -- who left again in 2007 and was replaced by new drummer Jürgen "Bam Bam" Wiehler. With new singer Alexander "Lex" Wohnhaas, who joined the group in 2007, Megaherz released their sixth full-length album, Heuchler. The lineup remained steady until in 2011, when second guitarist Vencelj left and was replaced by Christoph Klinke. The seventh album, Götterdämmerung, followed in 2012. ~ Christian Genzel, Rovi
