PostSubject: Absurd   Sun May 30, 2010 11:07 am

I can't believe there is no Absurd thread, German pioneers of national socialist black metal, kicked major ass. There is also a story here, back in the early 90's when the Absurd guys were still in high school they killed a 15 year old kid because he was going to reveal that one of the guys in Absurd was fucking a classmate's mother. Much lulz were had, they all went to jail. When they got out of jail, however, one of the guys quickly violated his parole by doing the 'Hitler salute' an illegal act in Germany. Great band is great, treat everything after Werwolfthron as a different band due to a change in musical style and a lack of original members.

You should check out, the entire Facta Loquutur and Werwolfthron albums.

Quote :
According to mainstream press and "Lords of Chaos" book, reasons for killing local schoolmate Sandro Beyer (15 years old) were because Beyer was hanging around the boys and followed them without realizing the members of Absurd were ridiculing him and wanted nothing to do with him. Beyer later left Absurd alone, but then began writing slander and speaking against the satanic acts Absurd was participating in to local school authorities and community residents. A final threat posed by Beyer was that he threatened to expose an affair one of the band members was having with a mother of a student enrolled at the school. Hendrik Mobus'' girlfriend later spoke to Beyer and claimed to agree with him and that she wanted to join in league with him to stop Absurd. She told him to meet at a certain point in a nearby wood at 8:00 P.M to resolve certain issues. Beyer arrived at 8:00 P.M that night to discover that the whole band of Absurd was there, and that it was a setup. They led Beyer to a nearby shed, where they proceeded to strangle him with an electrical wire, and he died in a matter of moments. They were released from prison in late 1998, but JFN was incarcerated again due to various crimes, including fleeing from Germany to the United States, in order to hide from the police.

While the convicted members of Absurd were in jail, they had a band called "In Ketten" (German for "In Chains")

Good band, but their guitar tone is complete shit.

Oh what, where did you get that wall of text? That would have saved me a fuck load of time. Also, I don't mind their guitar tone, but I also like the guitar tone on Folkfuck Folie.

Getting the shittiest quality version of what sounded to me like Gates of Heaven doesn't prove they have a shitty guitar tone. Go find the version of that song from their first album, it has an incredible sound.

This is from the later release with all the older songs on it.

Wow, sounds good. The debut version sounds like shit compared to this.

There is a reason that I prefer full lengths. They generally sound better.

No, the version on the debut full length with the original band members has an awful tone to it.

And that's the RERELEASED version.

I was wondering what was up with the one you posted. I stopped keeping up with new Absurd material after Totenlieder. I like the Facta Loquuntur versions of their songs. I don't mind the guitar tone at all. You are just picky.

If you guys like Absurd you should check out Apraxia, I've only heard a few songs by them, so I don't feel qualified to write a thread.

Absurd is good, though some of their stuff qualifies as more Viking metal than black metal.
In any case they're good, even though I don't care for the national socialistic elements.

So, Absurd. Are the albums or demos better?

Sound quality, albums for sure. I'm a big fan of the more RAC/Oi! oriented stuff that came before Facta Lonquutur, but Facta is their pinnacle work, it is like everything that was good about both of their sounds melded into one. Great album over all. You bastards won't like the demos though, poor musicianship is poor, especially in the drums and bass departments. Excellent songwriting is excellent though.

According to MA the demos are awful, but you really can't trust the reviews there, especially for demos.

I'll download them one day or another Razz

The reviews are awful because it is a metal website and the demos are pretty much straight punk. Like I said, I like the Oi!/RAC stuff.

I might check it out, as I DO like that sort of thing. I mean, I'm not into RAC, but I like a good deal of different kinds of punk, incl. Oi!. And poor production doesn't automatically make me dislike something like other people.
