After a series of set backs Predaking’s first full length album is finally finished and has been released. Get it here for free. It’s fast; it’s hard; it’s Predaking!
We have all been rather busy with our regular lives here at Shyfted Minds lately, but K.H.D. and Dustrict managed to pump out this two original, two remix track EP for your listening pleasure! Click the image above to stream and acquire it in your choice of digital audio format.
Shyft is struggling to find the time and patience to tweak the mix of and master Predaking’s new album. I’d wager this week or the first week of next month will mark it’s completion, but time keeps slipping away lately. There is still Johan Jello’s new EP to master and release as well!
In other news, physical merchandise such as shirts, stickers, and select physical CDs should be available soon through the Shyfted Minds website. If you’re clever and determined, you should already be able to find them on your own!
Eight years ago Shyft saw a Youtube video with clips from the game Fear set to the song Kétsarkú Mozgalom by Venetian Snares. He was showed this video to catch a glimpse of the game, but he never played that game. He listened to Venetian Snares’ symphonic break core album, home of the terrifying track that he had heard, many times. It inspired him to begin work on orchestral-infused brain dance, all originally written with sample-based VSTs and chopped apart drum loops, among synths. An equal obsession with Dimmu Borgir’s Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia inspired him to mix in some heavy metal elements. A year later Her Dark Square was written to its completion, being far more varied in style and mood than its muse material; some times it is even uplifting. Shyft considers it to be one of his finest works.
Her Dark Square, though poorly mixed and mastered, was of a higher production quality than what Shyft would achieve for a few more years to come, and yet in 2011 it came time to remix and remaster it, as well as upgrade the guitar sections. Now the revised edition is here for rerelease alongside the remix EP of the first track. Get them now by clicking the image links above!
Huzzah! A new half darkcore and crossbreed/half nu-style album (above promo mix courtesy of K.H.D.. Shyft feels so accomplished, finally back on track. Get your copies and/or stream the full album here and be sure to read the album description! Again, I’m asking for a few dollars for this one on Bandcamp, and, if you think it’s worth more, please modify payment to suit. The title track is available for free (no minimum)!
Shyfted Minds is hosted on a registered domain now, which costs money, and, if my work isn’t valued in this way for much longer, I won’t be able to justify pouring so many hours of the day in to it any longer- which is sad! But alas, adult humans gotta feed their selves. Asking for help is difficult for me, and asking for money makes me feel like kind of an ass hole. If you agree, look the release up on The Pirate Bay or Gabber.od.ua in a couple of days or so.
Yep, it’s finally here, the rerelease of Red Ankh’s ‘Gray’ double album. Bammo, industrial influenced progressive metal. Get your cyber hands on it here. This is the first time we are actually asking for money, since money is getting tight over here and time is getting even tighter. It is only ten dollars for one hundred sixty minutes of music, or fifty cents per track with the exception of the tracks Tundrome, Zarkerovense, and Secto, which are free. If you like my music enough to have it but not enough to support me with a means to make more of it in the future, you will be able to find it at places like the Pirate Bay soon enough.
‘My Webbing Come Undone’ is a symphonic break core track by Shyft written years ago for an album that never got a proper release. That symphonic break core album, entitled ‘Her Dark Square’, was remixed and remastered last November. Now, one remix of the four track remix EP for My Webbing Come Undone still needs new mastering, and then that will be complete and the release of both the album and the remix EP will launch, possibly next week.
Surprise! For the first time in three years, Shyft is nearly prepared to release a new gabber solo album, with six completed tracks and four nearly completed tracks. This album is to be simply called ‘HonoR’. Five are dark core or cross breed. Five are more ‘mainstyle’, sporting catchy yet complex melodies and harmonies. The title track is a mixture of both. This album will feature a new version of an old favorite. Shyft’s primary goal for this week- his spring break- is to finish these tracks.
Finally, ‘Gray’, the industrial metal double album by Red Ankh, is complete. Expect release of it by some time next week.
The Dustrict and Wizzort album is in its final stages. Expect industrial, hard core, cross breed…
The Predaking album has just a few tracks remaining to be finished, and is now going to feature a second ‘disk’ full of remixes. Fast, melodic gabber on its way!
Johan Jello has finished his first two track gabber EP, and as all these other projects come together, this will get mastered and released.
Stay tuned. Things are changing quickly around here now.
