In 2005 Massimo and Pierce released a new album, OperettAmorale. OperretAmorale is the fifth official release by Black Sun Productions and it features Massimo and Pierce paying homage to the poetry of German poet, playwright and thinker Bertolt Brecht (1898 - 1956). As many of Brecht's lyrics explored themes of human sexuality, morality and prostitution, Brecht was an influence on both men's lives from an early age. OperettAmorale features Brecht's original work retranslated by guest musicians including Coil (contributing a version of "A List of Wishes", recorded by John Balance prior to his death), Lydia Lunch (providing vocals to "The Ballad Of Sexual Dependency") and H. R. Giger (performing "Seeräuber-Jenny" in addition to providing a cover image for the album).
