Love is Colder Than Death, commonly abbreviated LiCTD or LICTD, is an early German heavenly voices / neo-classical / neo-
medieval band that was one of the corner stones to Hyperium Record's Heavenly Voices compilation series of the early 1990s.
The bands music is characterized by its extensive use of both romantic and classical styled male and female vocals. Founded by
Ralf Donis, Maik Hartung, Sven Mertens, and Susann Heinrich in 1990, the band members and music have changed slightly. The
first few LICTD albums were released on the Hyperium record label in Europe and on the new Metropolis Records label in the
Love Is Colder Than Death split in 2011. In 2012 Maik Hartung announced the band's return with a new lineup.
