Samsas Traum was evoked in 1996 by Alexander Kaschte as solo-project, resulting from his incapability of working together with other musicians. Having performed as vocalist and guitarist in several black, death, doom and melodic-metal-bands before, he decided to walk his own paths, to step forward into the wide fields of darker electronic and neoclassical music. The first demo-tape "Nostalgische Atavismen" sold more than 500 copies in the worldwide underground, slowly spreading the news that Samsas Traum someday might become more than a very strange little band with even stranger german vocals. After recording and releasing two more demo- and promo-tapes, the band signed their record deal with Trisol Music Group Germany (co-works with London After Midnight, Sopor Aeternus, L'âme Immortelle) on the 1st of march 1999, exactly three years after the bands foundation.
