K.H.D. releases Hirntod

It’s epic fantasy on the dance floor! Who said European folk music is dead? Well, I haven’t heard it… but most were surely thinking it. And, okay, there’s also a darker-styled track and some thing more reminiscent of the melodic Enzyme records sound, and they’re totally worth your time too. Click the image above to pay what you want for this five track release, which includes collaboration with Shyft, DMT, and MissCyainide!

We’re getting pretty close to Shyfted Minds’ one hundredth release… I wonder what happens then.

Oh. Yeah. Synth Exp 6 came out.

This Shyft release is a special one. Why did it take me weeks to update the Shyfted Minds site to reflect it, then? Well, because I MOVED TO DENVER FROM MINNEAPOLIS! But, that only takes a day of driving and, like, two days of getting the new apartment situated. YEAH. AND I GOT IN TO THIS REALLY GOOD GROOVE OF JOB HUNTING AND WRITING MAH BOOK! Okay, so I can be disorganized some times.

Either way, here it is! The sixth installment of the Synthetic Experiments series is the greatest experiment yet! I’d tell you all about it, but there’s no sense in paraphrasing the description on the release page, if you just going to see the original text soon any way. Just know that it’s two beefy tracks that are only a little comfortable with being called ‘psy-gabber’ and click on the image above. Oh. And it’s an other free release. It combines many of my favorite styles, which, to some, clash, so it needs all of the ease of access that it can get!

Scorpyd’s Bleed Yourself is here

-so click the image above to get your cyber hands on it. That’ll link ya to Google Play, because I favor Google and prefer their layout to, say, Beatport, but you can look it up on Beatport, Spotify, Itunes, et cetera and find it at those locations too. And, if you’re really lazy, below is a Youtube stream of the title track! Drum is loud. Drum goes boom. Other synthetic instruments do their things. Yeah!

2xFree_Synth_Exp

Yep, Shyft’s fourth installment of Synthetic Experiments is finally available!  SLOW BUT SURE.  RIGHT?  And, as a special treat, K.H.D. has made his first contribution to the Synthetic Experiments project, and this fifth volume is also now ready to be heard!  These two stand out in other ways, though: they are being released on Bandcamp early, before retail releases, and they are both available on Bandcamp for FREE.  Money is accepted and appreciated of course, but you can input an amount of zero to bypass payment.  I still want Shyfted Minds to be remembered as offering free music, and, with this Shyft release being one of the least DJ friendly to date, I’d really like to make sure that people just have the chance to have and listen to the unconventional oddness when ever and where ever they please.  Hit the images above to get your cyber fingers dipped in to these!

Shyft’s release will hit digital retailers on May fifth and K.H.D.’s will hit may ninth.  Since Bandcamp is right here, this is mainly important for Spotify streaming, I imagine.  Speaking of other outlets, click here to see K.H.D.’s video for Lebe Jetzt!.

Stay tuned!  Scorpyd also has a new release in the mastering phase, Shyft has two other Synthetic Experiments volumes near completion, one focusing on psychedelic trance influence and the other on industrial horror atmospheres.  He’s also reviving an old, instrumental epic within the realm of Red Ankh…

Predaking’s The Evil Earth EP is now complete and within your reach!

It’s been a long time since the artist behind this project has used the Predaking name, having worked under Divebomb for a couple years in stead; the fast-paced melody monster is back (with chip tune influence)! Click the image above to down load this four track release for free.

In other news, Shyft’s fourth installment of Synthetic Experiments might actually get its finishing touches soon (only like four hours worth of work is left on the release as a whole).  Shyft blames stress, lethargy, and getting his mundane life in order for the delay, but spring time is promising!  The prospect of working on music is starting to sound enticing again, and with a four-year university degree out of the way, Shyft should have more time to work on what’s really important.

Also, if you haven’t seen it yet, press play on the official music video for K.H.D.’s Lebe Jetzt!

K.H.D.’s album Hybrid is now available!

From the finger tips of the great K.H.D.:

‘Hey guys! FINALLY! My new album is ready for download!
15 tracks in total.
What styles?
Melodic Gabber? OF COURSE!!!
Harsh Gabber/Hardcore? HELL YEAH!
Trance? YES!
Drum And Bass? YEPP!
Ambient? A little bit.
Dubstep? Hell No.’

Click the cover image above to go straight to this free master piece. It is most excellent!

In other news, Predaking and Shyft have both been sick, so there have been delays on the new Predaking release and Synthetic Experiments 4 and 5 (which are both pretty close to being finished, damn it!). But, hey, slow and steady is how we roll around here. Such is the life of the committed rock non-star.

Once again, with (up beat) feeling!

What? Too dark? That’s okay! This time, I return to my more whimsical roots. No, it only gets a little clowny for a short while. It’ll make you want to go on an epic quest (may be for chocolate milk) before it makes you want to growl like a demon and thrash around like a… thrasher demon.

Three tracks. Deviates from the dance form more as you go along. If you ever wanted to know what real progressive gabber might sound like (and no, not full of two minute snare rolls and rising pad build ups), stick around for Breathless, the third track. Even if you didn’t, p’raps you’ll enjoy the novelty elsewise! Look at us, in this little no where pocket of the Internet, changing stuff. There could be wizard space frogs camping in the desert and no one would know! Yes. I am aware that that is a totally frivolous way to make a point. Be quiet!

In other news, we have a new artist in our midst. His first Shyfted Minds release is more or less ready to go, so prepare your self for a melodious but totally abrasive take on industrial… Why so mysterious? WHY DO PEOPLE WRITE CLIFF HANGERS!? Don’t toy with me, Demontraville, if that is your real name.

We’re still hanging out in the future here at Shyfted Minds. Don’t worry. We’ll warp back for the latest K.H.D. release in good time. Trust me. It’s worth the wait.

In other other news (or other other other news, for those keeping track), Shyft has been playing with all sorts of different ideas lately, and would like to share incomplete works with you, because who the hell knows when all this shit will get completed? OBSERVE:

Also, it appears as though I have become some sort of rune-marked ghost. Missed that memo, guys.

An… aftertaste of things that came?

Some sort of time warp brought us to catalog number SHM086. I think that there was supposed to be a K.H.D. number in there? Don’t worry. Well get back to it when the wiggly time is right. Until then? Enjoy this new release from Shyft! The experimentation continues with these two tracks brewed from hard edged darkness and wide-eyed strange-iosity. Click the cover image above to have a listen and a down load. It’s cheapest there, but you can also reach it through major digital retailers, and, like, stream it on Spotify and junk. In case you missed it, Volume 1 is still hanging around too.

This time it was dark and vicious again. For next time, expect some thing different. During the second week of October, a brighter, more uplifting set of experiments will be storming the gates of audio paradise, and this time around there will be three tracks, the third being an ethereal gabber piece in multiple movements. Hardcore has been ripping off classical anthems for years, so who says there’s no room for an original piece that progresses through stages as such? Stay tuned, and scream, if you like cookies.

Here come the gabber mixes

As said, here it be. The Zarkerovense remix that you may have heard a sneak preview of last year made it. K.H.D. was responsible for that of course. Imil and 1nsane returned after long silences on SHM to tackle Ankh’s Terror and New. Dustrict answered the call with a heavy tune much more on the jungle side, but with its industrial build up it fits in fine. Shyft took two tracks as well, totaling six gabber remixes of industrial-metal-themed Red Ankh tracks. Sound familiar? Good. You belong here.  Click the image above or here and enjoy this free release!
