Biography

Monschau, Germany (1995 – present)

Antichrisis was founded by singer and songwriter Sid way back in 1995 in Monschau, Germany. Originally meant to be a solo project, Sid was soon joined by guest vocalist Willowcat, and within a few months the legendary 80-minute demo tape “Missa Depositum Custodi” got recorded. Its first and only edition of 500 copies received an amazing feedback within the underground community and was sold out soon after its release in early 1996. That success led to negotiations with various independent labels, and Sid decided to sign to Ars Metalli.

September 1996 saw the beginning for Antichrisis’ first studio session for their debut album “Cantara Anachoreta”. Sid - by this time still known by his nom de plume Moonshadow - recorded the album within only 14 days with Willowcat’s vocal support. At this time Sid was in a very desolate situation concerning his private life - and the best way to express his feelings and to deal with an utterly fucked up relationship was to play that gloomy, melancholic but also furious and pushing kind of music. And that is exactly what Antichrisis is all about: to reflect Sid’s feelings and emotions in the best possible way without any restrictions or musical limitations.

“Cantara Anachoreta”, the band’s striking debut, hit the audience by January ‘97 and was enthusiastically received by the press: Only once in a blue moon had a newcomer’s first album indicated such well-defined and incisive style aligned with an amazingly vast number of different musical influences with enormous implicitness and distinction.

    Прекраснейшая группа, с толком умеющая использовать все инструменты попадающие в их ансамбль. Прямо сейчас играет волынка, но я знаю что через пару минут ее сменят аккорды гитары!

    A Legacy of Love - Mark II is one of my all time favorite albums, wish they had a bigger following.

    @Nirvana_inme ваша логика убивает - после 2001 года альбомов НЕ бЫЛО - после Парфюма были только переиздания первых двух альбомов

    Her voice is intoxicating in Goodbye To Jane. If I die listening to that song it will be a happy death. My senses have been enlightened and I am at a high level awareness after listening to this. You could say... I am a god now. :^

    i have the demo, it's like the Cantara album in a lesser good production, it's darker and maybe more epic...good item anyway.
