wertstahl is a kunstwort built from the words wert and stahl. it was coined in november 1998, with the sole intent of being prominent. it previously was just the name of my techno-industrial band, and now is my universal nickname, too. my real name is sebastian ivo hartmann. i am a producer and audio-engineer (but i do many other things professionally, too).

this page, which focuses on all the past and current musical works of wertstahl, is not a blog. it is more like a codex .

02-2017. Death to the Blackhats.


Ego, fein Feind.




Back in the days when we turned our backs on the gothic circus kindergarden.


Even more legacy.

Remember when you did something for the first time? Well, i do. Ofcourse, from a professional view, there is always a little pain involved in the first time, but the initial thought just counts. Like a seed.

So here it is. The very first recording of the Wertstahl prototype, called CombatLinkK, created in 1991. When First Words was recorded directly to tape, in 1993 we had no idea of how we could achieve professionality, so brace yourselves. This is the rough shit.

All tracks created with Oktalyzer on Commodore Amiga 500. And oh yes, i was around 16+ years of age.

Don't ever let anyone stop you.



We decided to give you the original version of what then became Wertstahl's KONTROL.

It took quite some time to mix and master. I hope you enjoy it as much as i do.


We made this:

It is so beautiful.


The peeps in Hacknet appreciated the quality of my sounds by using one in their game.

Keep up the great work!


For your ultimate chilled layedbackness, i stirred together these fine tunes:



Park your Panzer in the bush and sip a beer!

Awakening of the Weird Species

Guitarsz


A generous 3x MP3 download offering - super fresh stuff!

From below the melting permafrost Awakening of the Weird Species comes to you as a gift from the nice folks in Sethnefer, Fleischdolls and Wertstahl. It is a little appetizer for your ears and minds of what to expect in 2016. These are not just ordinary remixes, but the result of long time spiritual connectedness.
mnt.mn, producer of Fleischdolls was so nice to hack together some few lines of code, so i can show you how the excellent guitars* of Sethnefer, the freshness of Fleischdolls-Sound and the weirdness of Wertstahls' intense moments of highest concentration work together elegantly.
Click on the red picture above or here to go to the player, directly.

*("Organe Und Gewebe" by Fleischdolls also contains guitars by Sethnefer!)
