Ars Moriendi was created towards the end of 1989, and they played a strange mixture of new wave punk experimental music. After a few years and a few line-up changes, in 1991 they became more electronic orientated, developing into dark and ritual sounding industrial, eventually venturing into more dark ambient rhythmic drone. They broke up in 1994 because the members’ solo-projects became more important… only to resurface in 2002 for a live reunion show, which was released in 2003. The band reunited once more for the Maschinenfest in 2008. Members have also been involved with Monokrom, Templegarden's, Asche and Synapscape.
