Biography

Inade are a German band who specialise in warped, strange, and hypnotic sounds. Stemming from the ambient genre, their unique brand of mesmerizing music has captivated listeners worldwide. Since 1991, they have reveled in the creation of music that is limitless, bound to nothing, not even the fathomless reservoir of imagination that overflows from the minds of its creators. “Inade go to places that even the most vivid dark sonicscape practitioners have yet to traverse.” J. C. Smith, Spectrum Magazine (2000)

In the early 1990s, Dark Ambient sounds could already be heard emerging from Aue in the Erzgebirge (the “Ore Mountains” region of Saxony), specifically on two audio cassettes by the duo Inade: “Schwerttau” (“Sword Dew”, 1992) and “Burning Flesh/Seelenhain” (“Grove of Souls” 1993) were still testing the limits of the sound equipment at their disposal, and searching amidst the stylistic territories of Post-Industrial and Ambient Musics.

Movement!

The first vinyl release came in the form of a 7” that was part of the legendary Drone-Series. “The Axxiarm Plains” (1994) is dedicated to the Russian Futurist Vladimir Vladimirowich Majakowski (1893-1930), who declared the need for an “Art in Movement”: “Movement! We do not need a mausoleum for art, where dead works can be viewed, but rather living factories of the human spirit.” This quote from his work Movement and Construction is included in the 7” insert. Consequently, this three-part miniature is totally dedicated to invoking energy through sound.
