Day 11 - Heavy Metal Advent - Absurd


I swear, I am not only seeking out German metal bands. Today's pick is the Absurd side of a split CD with the band Heldentum, also from, Germany. You might remember Absurd being a part of the German local black metal scene in the "Lords of Chaos" book.

According to the "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")
