(2004 – 2008)

Meaning Bandname: They take the name from sociologist Max Weber who use the term to refer to increasing rationalization of human life, which closely reflects the bands’ ideas and lyrics.

Bio: After the end of Los Asesinos De La Superficialidad, Ferry and René find Gosse and Hans to form Iron Cage. Musically it’s hardcore and leans towards 90’s emo/screamo a la Heroin, Portraits Of Past, Assfactor 4. In 2005 they record their first CD “We Turn Our Heads” (released in 2006 by Breaksome Records). The second record is “Nature is not mute, modern man is deaf” and is released by Pissed Off Records from Malaysia in 2008. Both albums are recorded in the SingSing Studios by Milan, and the artwork is taken care of by Mirka. At the end of 2008 they record their final CD ‘Emotie van Wantrouwen’ which contains 8 songs recorded together with J.B./Dr.Doom.
