Biography

DIN Tod do not intend to make it easy for potential listeners … their cryptic band name and symbolism are complicating an easy categorization of the Berlin-based trio. DIN Tod want to confuse, stir up and induce emotions. “Symbols are nothing else than concentrated images”, states singer Sven. “All our thoughts are driven by images. The power inherent in these symbols is similar to the one emanating from music: it can invigorate, fascinate and cause upheaval. This is what DIN Tod is all about.” The name also fits hand in glove. It is a sort of fusion of system and void.

In case you are now expecting pathetic laments on the condition of the world or a headstrong artsy-fartsy bilge, you can lean back and relax because DIN Tod are none of the above. On their first long player “The Sound of Crash”, they gift-wrap their reflections on power and hysteria, the world, the universe and the bloody rest into groovy beats, versatile song structures, somewhere between Minimal Electro, Wave, Post-Punk and Electroclash … and catchy tunes that have been stripped down to the bare essentials.

Sven and Claudia formed DIN Tod in 2003, bored by vands that follow the usual line up of “guitar/bass/drums.” They purchased a solid base of analogue synthesizers, drum sequencers and recording equipment … and went to work. Musically, they started out by merging the sound of the early Eighties – from Joy Division to the early Sisters of Mercy – with minimalist electronics to create a musical mixture that is just as intriguing as it is catchy. They recorded the first demo in 2004 and started playing concerts. In 2005, the signed to Out of Line Music and released their debut single – fittingly enough on 10” picture vinyl.

    Shame/annoying that most of their songs on Last.FM radio (here in Canada) at least, come up as 90 second clips.

    Hey Nightzp: 5. Maybe, you’re ready now to explain how did you come up with the name DIN [A] TOD? It’s meaning? Or at least translate roughly the words that the name contains? Claudia: The name is a symbol. We like symbols... anyone can associate the meaning. DIN [A] is the phrase for "German Industrial Standard", a standard used for for example paper sizes and any other industrial product. 'Tod' means, well, ‘death’... so there is also the contrast between a - System, and that which cannot be measured at all - death.

    Please, stop tagging this band with "ebm". that sucks... Post-Punk, Synthpop and something with "minimal" would be right...
