Absurd Minds, the German duo of vocalist Stefan Grossmann and keyboardist Tilo Ladwig, played atmospheric electronic music that bordered on industrial dance and synth-pop, notably on the six-song EP Planetary Empire (1996), that contains Absurd. They refined their melodic and orchestral style on Deception (2000), with an impressive sequence of catchy and ominous songs like Brainwash, Restrictive Delusion, Deception and Fairy Stories. Venture Inward is stately and almost military. I am Dying Alone is both more aggressive and more melancholic. There is variety but all the songs contribute to create a suffocating mood.

They incorporated drummer Timo Fischer for their most commercial phase: Damn The Lie (2001) includes Creators, Septic and Damn The Lie, songs with a louder beat; The Focus (2003) contains Self Imposed, The Question and especially Herzlos; and Noumenon (2005) still has Gedankenreich.

Revived (2005) is a career retrospective and The Cycle (2006) was simply a teaser with several versions of Cycle and some leftovers.

The trio reformed and released Serve Or Suffer (2010) and then again for Tempus Fugit (2017) and Sapta (2020).
