Pronoian Made

Pronoian Made was an alternative rock/gothic metal band from Luxemburg. Founded in 1989 by Oliver Made (vocals & guitar) under the name The Escape, the band has toured through most European countries and supported bands such as HIM, The Crüxshadows, Clan of Xymox, and Zeraphine. They have also played on festivals like the Wave-Gotik-Treffen. The musical style of the band has evolved from early days punk to a modern rock sound with melancholic melodies and ethereal guitars.

After releasing three official albums ("Welcome in Pronoia" , "EP1613" and "Cherubim") and contributing to numerous samplers ("Künstler zum WGT vol.11 & 13", "Dark Awakenings vol.3", "Dark Horizons", "Zillo-Scope 06/2004",...) the creative work of the band came to a grinding halt, surprising fans and the media alike.
