Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:

1) Absurd is a / band from Germany. It was founded in Sondershausen by Hendrik Möbus and Sebastian Schauseil the 2’nd of January 1992, with the third member Andreas Kirchner joining them later on. Ronald ‘Wolf’ Möbus, Sebastian ‘DMD’ Schauseil, and Hendrik ‘JFN’ Möbus decided to respond to the New Wave of Black Metal with a band of their own. The choice of the band’s name is apocryphal and is open to multiple interpretations. It is thought correct to assume an interrelation between the band name and one of the pastimes of the band members at this time; watching poorly produced, though hilarious horror B-movies.

The trio who were as young as 16 and not older than 19 years old, managed to record a promo, “God’s Death”, in June 1992. Absurd frequented a rehearsal place in the communal youth centre, and soon Sebastian ‘DMD’ managed to stock the local YMCA with juvenile outbursts of ‘Satanism’ and ‘Honor fantasies’. When Punk Rock bands, who also rehearsed in the youth centre, incited a conflict with Absurd to use communal property and equipment to further their NS and xenophobic views, the band retreated into a cabin located in dense forest outside their hometown. Meanwhile, Wolf assumed the role of manager and a new member to the band. In late 1992, Absurd recorded the ‘Death From the Forest’ demo, and the band was subsequently reduced to a duo consisting of Sebastian ‘DMD’ and Hendrik ‘JFN’. The two recorded “God’s Deathful Sadness” split demo in March 1993.

    it's wild to me how worked up some of y'all get over nsbm. you shouldn't let music get you that pissed off and miserable. i'm not a racist at all but i can respect and get down to this. it's raw as hell and fuckin rad. part of respecting everyone or whatever you angry people are moaning about is respecting that not everyone believes the same shit as you and nobody has to give a fuck about anyone else. people have the right to hate anyone for any reason. skin color or culture or religion aren't sacred and shouldn't be exempt from hatred for whatever reason

    "In a healthy society, that respect the importance of the castes, the race, the culture, etc. all of you SJWs will be the first to be enslaved (Although all of you would die on the first day, hehe)." Ah hell, don't fuel the white college students' persecution complex. The funny thing about them is that they're about the least oppressed people on earth and they're struggling to feel like the kewl 60s activists of yore

    @benberzerc: I wonder how sexually preoccupied and unhappy in life you must be, to type dozens of comments in shoutboxes of the bands whose views you consider to be 'wrong'. You won't stop freedom of speech and expression with this, be sure.

    "Würde es nicht akut gg. Bundesdeutsche Strafgesetze (Kriegswaffenkontrollgesetz) verstoßen, dann hätten wir schon längst aufgerüstet mit allen legal o. illegal erhältlichen Mordwerkzeugen (bspw. Weltkriegsgerät): doch was zählen schon "Gesetze" im Reich von Absurd?" Ja im "Reich von Absurd" zählt nur Hirn-befreit.

    This sounds like a bad blend of babby-core death metal and overproduced pale-kid-core black metal. Some songs are less produced than others, but the treble bothers my ears to listen.
