Coppelius is a German band from Berlin that plays metal on drums, double bass, cello, and clarinet. The bands name is taken from E.T.A. Hoffmann’s short story "Der Sandmann". Their logo consists of a top hat with the word "Coppelius" underneath.
The band is made up of Max Coppella, Comte Caspar, Graf Lindorf, Sissy Voss, Herr Linus von Doppelschlag, and Bastille. Former band members include Nobusama. Additionally, they are often accompanied by Prof. Mosch Terpin.
On stage the members of the band wear formal, old-fashioned clothes, inspired mainly by the Victorian era. This era is also an inspiration for a lot of the themes in Copellius' music. For this reason, they are often referred to as a Steampunk band.
