Biography

Vienna, Austria (1996 – present)

L’âme Immortelle (French: the immortal soul) is an Austrian band that produces , and more recently also .

Many of L’âme Immortelle’s songs feature melancholy or lovelorn lyrics in German or English, and juxtaposed harsh male and emotional female vocals. Current work has moved away from the band’s electronic roots into the neue deutsche härte (New German hardness) genre.

L’âme Immortelle was formed in 1996 in Vienna, Austria by friends Thomas Rainer and Hannes Medwenitsch. Soon vocalist Sonja Kraushofer, a former classmate of Rainer, joined and the band sought a record contract. They released their first album, “Lieder die wie Wunden bluten” in 1997 on MOS Records in Lichtenstein, which became popular in the underground German Goth subculture. In 1999, L’âme Immortelle switched to Trisol Records. From 1998 through 2001, L’âme Immortelle released another LP yearly, each bringing the band greater popularity. In 2002, Medwenitsch left the band. Kraushofer and Rainer recruited Ashley Dayour as a guitarist and the re-formed L’âme Immortelle released a new single, “Tiefster Winter” in November 2002. In 2003, L’âme Immortelle released “Als die Liebe starb”, as well as “Seelensturm”, a collection of re-issued and re-mixed early material.
