☼ Absent Minded - Endless Pain

Not to be confused with the hip-hop/rap artist of the same name from Sweden, this Absent Minded, from Germany, was an underrated 'one-album wonder' on the infamous Celtic Circle label. Heavy beats, fat synths, distorted vokillz -- dark EBM at its finest! Three years later, the band changed musical direction in favor of more electro synth-pop, and had one more release ('Killer' maxi-CD) before fading into obscurity forever.
I'd like to correct myself. I dug out my 'Killer' maxi-CD and as soon as I saw the cover, (I hadn't looked at it in about 10 years) I instantaneously remembered how it sounded, and knew I was totally WRONG about the musical direction change. It's every bit as dark-EBM as 'Endless Pain' is. I'm chuffed I still have these tracks, so I'll probably upload them sometime. :)
"Endless Pain" will appeal to fans of 'older' XMTP, amGod, yelworC, Serpents, Sleepwalk, Putrefy Factor 7, etc.
