Bio

In 1993, Oliver Wand, along with Guido Adolphi, founded Obscenity Trial. It was the cornerstone for a future development that nobody would have predicted.

After a 6 year separation, 2004 saw the band reborn -- and finally releasing it's debut album, "Here and Now". More than a simple statement, the album is the exclamation behind the band's remarkable history. Produced by legendary electronics wizard Olaf Wollschlaeger (Melotron, In Strict Confidence, Seabound, Vorsprung dur Technik), the album contains their own singular brand of genre-straddling electropop.

Given the timespan, the press found itself often wondering how this band had escaped their radar for so long. Fans received a similar treat when Obscenity Trial was picked to be the opening act on And One's 2006 "Bodypop" tour. The album also appeared on numerous compilations, as well as making an appearance on the German "Gamestar" magazine DVD (with a circulation of over 300,000!). Their stunning cover of the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" was both a tremendous club single, and an example of how their sound stretches across traditional boundaries.

In 2007, the band returned to the studio, working with Olaf Wollschlaeger once again to create the "Daydream" EP. Released on Infacted Recordings / Soulfood, it contains 6 brand new O.T. tracks, as well as 4 club-stomping remixes. And Oliver's strong vocal sound continues to place them a cut above "cookie-cutter" Synthpop acts. If early indications are any gauge, the impact of Obscenity Trail looks less like a daydream, and more like a storm.

The single "Daydream" reached several Radio- and TV-Rotations in Germany and was featured by PRO7.DE, YAHOO! Music, MySpace as well as NAPSTER.

In 2008 Oliver leaves Infacted Recordings to release the new album "That Night" with Major Records (X-Perience, IAMX, MESH) which was released on May 16th 2008.

Aside Europe and Russia "That Night" was released in Japan, Sweden and Spain.

In November/December 2008 Obscenity Trial played their first U.S. headlining tour, performing at 20 U.S.-cities within six weeks.

After this tour O.T. locked themselves up in the Studio just to return with a bang: No other than Tino Oac (Söhne Mannheims) produced their new Singles as precursors for their third Studio-Album "Soulstrip", which is released on their own label "remote music", distributed by SONY MUSIC.

The Singles have been written by Robin Grubert, amongst others Songwriter for Martin Kesici, Sasha and Christina Stürmer.
