Biography:Dirty, dark, and vicious. Hurtful, sorrowful and hateful.
Aktive.Hate spawned from the mind of ISK (also driving force behind PsychotekTrauma, VexXxeR, Anxiety Disorder and Lokomotiv) early 2007, under the moniker Aktiv[e|h]ate, as a portraial of all the hateful, violent, insane, sexually deviant thoughts that populated it.
Starting as a rather generic harsh/dark electro band, the band laid dormant for more than one year, working towards defining a good clear sound and identity and in 2009 finally started playing live with it's live debut as opener act for german band Stereomotion.
Aktive.Hate released two free EP's during 2009 through portuguese netlabel Enough Records and continued playing live with many bands, some of which big names in the genre. Aktive.Hate has played with Lokomotiv, Lith, U.M.M., Control Alt Deus, Sci-Fi Industries, Waste Disposal Machine, Sektor 304, Eden Synthetic Corps, Stereomotion, Alien Vampires and S.A.M.. Just before the release of second ep "Washed in Blood", the band then changed it’s name into less confusing Aktive.Hate.
In the last months of 2009 Aktive.Hate signed a deal with Hungarian label Advoxya Records to release the debut album, "In Terrorem", which came out in June 2010. The band is now busy writing new songs for upcoming release and rehearsing it's new line-up for future concerts.
