Ben Rüsch

Ben is the noisy guy in the band, contributing song arrangements and lyrics to The Demon Haunted World.  

Along with truckloads of chips, beer, and silliness.


Ben in the role of drummer plays Tama Starclassic Elite Bubinga drums, Gibraltar drum racks, Pearl pedals and stands, Paiste cymbals: 2002, Signature, Alpha, and Dimensions cymbals and Paiste symphonic gongs. Ben also uses a Roland TD15 kit, and the Roland Octapad SPD30.


Ben is a drummer with a multitude of musical influences and has serious addiction to synthesizers, and dark wave/ goth/ industrial electronic music.


For his  n e u r o s h o c k  project, Ben uses the Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2, Arturia Keylab 61, Native Instruments Kontakt, Novation Bass Station II, Roland TD 15, Roland Octapad SPD30, and these borrowed hardware bits: Roland Juno 106, Roland JX3P, Roland XV88, Yamaha Motif Rack, Yamaha DX7II, Korg M1, and Micro Korg.


Ben is unusual for drummers in that he has no tattoos.  He places an umlaut in his last name to compensate.  Actually, there is another "Ben Rusch" out there, a multi-instrumentalist from Germany, and so there was a need to distinguish himself from him with an umlaut.

SDR + Studio Irrenhaus are his other creative outlet, for making the band's music videos and other media. Ben's sound art project is called "neuroshock" and he has released several official singles and videos.
