Elend Bio

Elend is a neoclassical dark wave band formed in France in 1993 by composers and multi-instrumentalists Iskandar Hasnawi of France and Renaud Tschirner of Austria. The band's name is German for "misery." Their music can be described as gothic and orchestral music, or simply neoclassical.

Early Elend albums utilized samplers and synths to create a dense and horrifying orchestral sound. In recent albums for the Winds Cycle, Elend's sound has broadened; they have incorporated industrial elements and now rely almost entirely on acoustic instruments and chamber orchestras instead of synths, giving them a more full and natural sound.
