Biography

Germany (1995 – present)

Absurd Minds or (ABSUЯD) Minds is an electronic music group from Germany. It was created by Stefan Großmann and Tilo Ladwig in 1995.

The formation of Absurd Minds began in 1995 with Stefan Großmann (voice, composing) and Tilo Ladwig (composing, programming, sampling). Musically they were inspired by the EBM of the early 1990s. The lyrics are clearly inspired by religion and urge the listener to think for themselves, about themselves, about dreams, deceptions by the media and the forces of nature.

In the years 1995-1999, Absurd Minds released 3 CD-R’s in limited quantities, laying the foundation for further developments by the band. After a long creative phase their first concert took place at the Dresden club, Bunker. As a result of this the band came into contact with Music Cooperation who undertook the job as management. A recording contract with the label, Scanner, followed in December, 1999. In the meantime, Absurd Minds played in Electromania II in Leipzig. The recording for their first single, “Brainwash” and album, Deception began in January, 2000.

In March, the band played live at the Nostromo Festival in Görlitz and opened for the Electromania III festival which was part of the Wave-Gotik-Treffen 2000. In December their second single, “Come Alive” appeared and in January, 2001 they began recording the album, Damn the Lie. During the work on this album the band took on a third member, Timo Fischer, who up to then had only played as reinforcement during live performances.
