Biography

(2007 – present)

Dirty, dark, and vicious. Hurtful, sorrowful and hateful.
aktivehate spawned from the mind of ISK early 2007, under the moniker Aktiv[e|h]ate, in the aftermath of his former band’s ending. The band laid dormant for more than one year, working towards defining a good clear sound and refining its identity and in 2009 finally became active, playing live at its debut as opener act for German band Stereomotion in Oporto, and releasing its first effort.

aktivehate released two free EPs during the year 2009 through Portuguese netlabel Enough Records (still available for download on the band and label’s websites), both of which received great reviews and started setting a name for the band, and establishing it as a “newcomer to watch”. In the last months of 2009 aktivehate signed a deal with Hungarian label Advoxya Records for the release of it’s debut full-length album, “In Terrorem”, which came out in June 2010.
The album once again received rave reviews, and represented a step up both in the quality and in refinement of the music and in defining an identity. Rather than just trying to emulate and repeat a formula, like so many other bands, “In Terrorem” introduces musical elements not often used in dark electro. Taking a gamble and using high-distortion guitars and clean vocals alongside the more typical elements of dark electro, aktivehate unwillingly opened a door for other bands. Even though fusing industrial with metal was hardly a new thing at all, the music still was dark electro, without falling into industrial metal.
