Here we go. Three tracks added to the masterful discography of K.H.D., in his personal style of melodic gabber. This is Shyfted Minds’ ninety-ninth release! BIG DEAL. YEAH? Click the cover image to get to the release’s page. It’s good. I listened to it, and you can trust me. Who am I? ON WHOSE AUTHORITY DO YOU ASK SUCH QUESTIONS?
Time for an other master piece! This is his second album of the year, and it’s pure audio magic. Melodic gabber is the focus but not the constant, following the pattern of shift toward interluding down tempo and theme music from his previous recent releases. It’s totally top notch, and totally free. Click the image above to escape in to a beautiful, infinite melody space!
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.
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…
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!
From the finger tips of the great K.H.D.:
‘Hey guys! FINALLY! My new album is ready for download!
15 tracks in total.
Melodic Gabber? OF COURSE!!!
Harsh Gabber/Hardcore? HELL YEAH!
Drum And Bass? YEPP!
Ambient? A little bit.
Dubstep? Hell No.’

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.
The reboot of Red Ankh Green just won’t happen for a while, due to the sad fact of time restraints. In its stead, we have the Little Green EP! No, it’s not just the few tracks from Green that were managed to be finished; it’s three brand new tracks and one gabber remix (cause that’s what we do here). The first track is vocal heavy, lyrically expounding on the essence of folk metal in general. It is more reserved than the others in a technical sense. The second and third tracks are both instrumentals focusing on Germanic folk influences and Caribbean folk influences, respectively. Ever wanted to hear a metal track full of steel (or pan, considering your frame of reference) drums? Well, Red Ankh sure as hell did. If you’re over there going, ‘The hell is a steel drum or a pan drum? Aren’t all modern drums made with steel and are more or less pan-shaped?’ Well, YOU FOOL- remember those plinky, bright staccato instruments in half of the up-beat tunes in Super Mario World? No, not the piano. Yes, that other thing. That was a MIDI-style synthetic version of a steel drum.
Any way… K.H.D. of course is the remix artist on this one, as medieval melodies are his thing. The album art is all eight-bitty because I’m pretty sure my love of folk metal was directly influenced by old-school fantasy adventure and role-playing video game sound tracks. That, and may be I missed my old, crappy pixel art and may be I wanted to give it an other go. You’ll notice that the release date differs from this post date. This is because most folk metal belongs during autumn, the non-remix tracks were all ready to ship in autumn, and I do what I want! It’ll be up on Spotify and stuff in a couple weeks or some thing.
IN OTHER NEWS, K.H.D.’s new massive release is all complete now; we’re just waiting for the cover art. Predaking is returning with a new release, which very well may be ready next week’s end. As you can see, we’re rather relaxed about release dates around here. We’re an organic organization with digital hearts! Or some such nonsense.
