New Music, Album Projects and Various Notes

Only on Spotify, iTunes, GooglePlay...

August 18/2017 Great news! Finally some really great news! It's exciting.

I have the great pleasure to announce the appearance of my latest album 'only' on Spotify, iTunes and GooglePlay today. Check out how great it sounds!

More hip music sites will follow, check back soon (and follow my twitter) to get the links. Feel free to spread the word, don't hold back. I appreciate your support!

It's only a matter of time that my other albums will appear on those important platforms as well. It requires some magical remastery here and there, but that's no big deal. Stay tuned.

New Music

Regarding my current projects: "171" has been recorded and mixed entirely and will be mastered next week. It's one dirty beast of instrumental EDM. I love it.

For now i'm working hard on the electronic ambient album "Subaqueous Structures". It's coming together nicely.

Thanks for your visit, have a great time ;)

Subaqueous Structures, 171 and other things.

May 23/2017 If you're following me on twitter you may have heard already that something bad happened to me shortly after i'd written the last post. Something that set me under extreme stress, forced me to pack my seven things and leave my flat to temporarily live on the next park bench.

I'm kidding. I didn't need to sleep on a bench. But the rest is true. Anyway... more than 8 weeks and numerous mental breakdowns later, i finally do see a little light on the horizon. At least i'm telling me that.

I'm expecting to be back at home aka my Studio by the end of June. Then i will finally be able to continue working on my next two albums, "171" and "Subaqueous Structures" (Title revealed!) So long, stay wet.

New Albums coming this summer

March 15/2017 At first, many thanks to all of you for the all-positive feedback on my last album 'only'. I hope you are looking forward to my next clou. It's coming!

I've started cooking the successor of '214' a few weeks ago. So it's going to be an electronic album that will also feature some guitar parts this time - after '214' was totally guitar-free. BTW, my twitter buddy @ShadowsOfLife0 was the first who guessed the title right: 171

And there's a second project going on, which will be more experimental and ambient than the edm-based '171'. More about both projects soon...

Diskret! Volume 2

January 18/2017 German singer Axel Ludwig has released Volume 2 of his extensive "Diskret!" project last month. He also remixed Volume 1 and is already hard working to finish Volume 3, which will complete this remarkable trilogy.

I have tracked all drums and guitars, and wrote a personal release note...

Even if you don't understand German, check this stuff out! It's well-arranged handplayed rock music with many catchy riffs and beautiful moments. Diskret! is available for FREE on Axel's homepage axel-ludwig.de.

ONLY Release

December 16/2016 I've released my take on ambient music today. The album 'only' contains 10 calm but catchy tracks and simply sounds amazing imo.

Make sure to check out if i'm right! Listen to it here and get your digital copy on bandcamp.

Thanks for your support! Enjoy.

Skeyavil Theme 2016

New Website/Release Date

What an exciting day! I revamped my homepage and finally came up with an official release date and title for my new album.

The ambient guitar/synth album 'Only' is going to be released on December 16. Mark that in your calendar! The album is beautiful!

Moments

Twitter just rolled out the 'moments' feature, what's a nice thing to sort tweets around a specific topic.

So i started to document the making of my next project, the ambient album, on a dedicated twitter moments stream that makes it very easy to follow my progress without all the random tweeting. Twitter recommends to have only about 10 tweets in a moment, but what the crap! :)

Update: Ambient Guitar Album

The writing process is over, all tracks for my next album are written and demo-ed. It will be a very quiet album with 10 wonderful pieces of ambient music. More info and teasers coming soon(tm).

I'm looking forward to record the album during October. If i can manage to release by the end of November it will be my third album in 12 months! A year ago i never would have thought to have such a high creative output in 2016.

Thanks to all supporters! I hope you're slowly getting excited. See you soon ;)

PS: A new website is also in the works to feature the new album prominently.

Album Release

My latest clou "Functional Disorder", a full-length rock album that is heavily influenced by dark and aggressive genres like metal, shoegaze and post-rock, has been released on its dedicated webpage!

The album contains 10 tracks, starting with the epic opener "Creeping Process", going through the "Synapse" trilogy, the super moody "Into a deeper shade", not to forget about the enormous title track (a 15 minutes long prog-metal monster) - just to name a few corners.

You can learn more about the main inspiration for this album in this blog post.

Download Functional Disorder on bandcamp like always. If you're new to my music also check out the special sale to get all of my albums even cheaper than they already are.

Of course you can also stream the album over bandcamp, a few times for free. Stay tuned and thanks for all the fish.

The story of Functional Disorder

The new longplayer is freshly mastered and sounding great! I will soon come up with a release date. But before that i need a rest (making FD was very intense), create more artwork and the final album website - and talk about the project. Please read the Story of Functional Disorder here

December Recap '15

It's that time of the year when everybody's getting ready for Christmas. Not me, i'm making a short resume of 2015 and big plans...

Axel Ludwigs Diskret!

I had the pleasure to be part of Axel Ludwig's project "Diskret!" Axel Ludwig is a German Singer, Songwriter and Keyboardist. I even played drums in his band about 30 years ago!

The first songs "So gern erreicht" and "Anteilnahme" have been released on the Diskret! Website. Also don't miss to read my personal release statement.

The new album is here! View the online booklet and get the whole thing on Bandcamp, entirely free for the first 48 hours! Sit back, relax and enjoy SHAM.
