SITD, also commonly written as [:SITD:] as an acronym of 'Shadows in the Dark' - which is a metaphor for their dark sound and lyrics - is a German Electro band consisting of Carsten Jacek (Vocals, Lyrics), Thomas Lesczenski (Music, Programming, Backing Vocals) and Francesco DAngelo (Keyboards). They were founded in 1996 and have a fanbase in the dark 'Gothic' scene. Their most popular single was 'Snuff Machinery', containing samples of the movie 8mm.
SITD's music contains examples of:
- Album Title Drop: 'Bestie Mensch', 'Dunkelziffer'
- Harsh Vocals: Not exactly Death Metal shouting, but main vocalist Carsten does something similar, more talking than singing.
- Mohs Scale of Lyrical Hardness: 6 to 9, usually somewhere around 7.
- Silly Love Songs: Absolutely averted, they do not have a single love song.
