Absurd [GER]

Absurd is one of the best-known National-Socialist black metal bands in Germany.

Absurd is one of the best-known National-Socialist black metal bands in Germany. It was founded in Sondershausen by Hendrik Möbus and Sebastian Schauseil in 1992, with a third member, Andreas Kirchner, joining at a later stage. Möbus' brother, Ronal "Wolf" Möbus (who is also the owner of the label Nebelfee Klangwerke on which Absurd are signed) had previously sat in rehearsal sessions with the band at the local YMCA, where they utilized a free rehearsal space open to local teen bands. Their lyrics concern nationalistic, pagan (Hendrik Möbus is the founder of the Deutsche Heidnische Front), and anti-Christian themes.

Despite being considered one of the most well-known and one of the first NSBM bands, these themes didn't seem to become that prominent until the 1999 release Asgardsrei. While the young band had a small following among their peers, and had supposedly even attracted the attention of Euronymous, the figurehead in the allleged Norwegian black metal circle (an unfounded claim, as stated by former contacts of both Euronymous and Absurd. That Möbius and Varg Vikernes had been in contact since 1990 is mentioned marginally in Gods of the Blood . The band achieved infamy because its members murdered the fifteen-year old Sandro Beyer in 1993. « hide
