This Slovak (currently Czech/Slovak) band was established in the early 1990s. The early experiments later led to ultimate death-industrial sound which brought Einleitungszeit status one of genre top-classics. Longtime original set-up changed in 1999 when P-01 (Patryc Cyber) was replaced by hallucinatory throat of Czech mamber Martin Jarolim (from VO.I.D). P-01 capitulated and still dedicates himself to his solo project Simulacrvm which debut CD Zevgma was released two years ago on Old Europa Café.

After many releases are Einleitungszeit well-known worldwide nowadays and their live performances have been seen by audiences not only in Slovakia and Czechia but also in Poland and Germany – with more then positive reaction and successful acceptance. Besides Polish tour are also planned the European and American ones for 2001 (Fire Martyr US Tour).

The very first tapes Die Menschzerstörung, Menschliche Destruktive Zivilisation and Kremation
Gesch-Lechtslos were released by Slovak Crewzine. This material was followed by LP Aus dem Laboratorium on German Art Konkret label. Another release L´accouchement des machines humaines was realized on Finnish label Freak Animal. Afterwards American cult Recalcitrant Noise took care about this project and the results were two vinyl albums R Mensch I Tanatologie (2lp) and Aus der Leichenkammer which was censored on Slovakia because of quite shocking and unacceptable cover.

During 1999 was recorded and released first Einleitungszeit CD Doba uvodu, unfortunately after split of the original set-up and leaving of Patrick. This could be called as a truly memento of the „old time Einleitungszeit”. First Einleitungszeit video release Schrei des Feuers (organic live performance 1999) was released on ars morta universum on the eve of 1999 and the second one Hirnlarm (inhuman solarized vision of live performance from 1997)on the same label a year later.

Now different labels plan re-releases of mentioned older stuff – Die Menschzerstörung CD should be released on Black Plagve, LP Menschliche Destruktive Zivilisation should appear in the catalogue of Recalcitrant Noise and LP / CD Kremation Gesch-Lechtslos will be put out by ars morta universum.

Einleitungszeit live actions are very intense, often described as „negative or destructive”, but they have more common with ecstasy when R-01 uses grinder directly on his chest (protected only with thin metal plate) or burning his hands with asbestos gloves or grinding an iron band around his neck.Sometimes, these emanations of joy could not be left without a harm; R-01 was burned or hit by electricity for many times.

The sound is absorbing, clear and powerful. Forty minutes of their stage storm brings ecstasy and feelings of transformation through sound, spirit and fire. The imagery of master-slave relationship, the embodiment of human alienation, those are information transmitted by the cyber-apostles for the next century, for hybrids and clons century.
