Here is Shyfted Minds’ first release of the year two thousand fourteen and eightieth release over all: Divebomb’s The Walking Dead EP, which is also Shyfted Minds’ thirty-ninth hard core release. Read the details here and click the image above to down load it for free! Dem kicks. Dose melodies. Ommy nom nom nom.
You may have spotted a couple of tracks by Divebomb on Predaking’s last release, his huge double album Dark Days. This is his side project for slower hard core- or regular hard core, for those who find his 190bpm+ works to be too hectic! We’ll have you know that the first Divebomb solo EP is finished, mastered, and ready for release. Expect to see it up for free down load early next week.
It should come as no surprise that K.H.D. is at it again with some thing big. Keep your eyes peeled.
Red Ankh’s Gray is an industrial and metal themed double album showcasing Shyft’s industrial trance side in between Red Ankh’s regular weirdness attuned to industrial metal, or some thing like it. It appeared as a limited, mostly instrumental release back in 2008 and had new life breathed in to it with many new vocal recordings, updated mixing, and remastering in 2013. The release promo video teased you with the prospect of a remix EP, which experienced much delay. Now we are happy to announce that Gray: The Gabber Mixes EP (an enthusiastic nod to Fear Factory) is currently scheduled to be released during the third week of March! You can expect to see Red Ankh’s guitar-infused tracks remixed in to hard core dance music by Shyft, K.H.D., Dustrict, Imil, Tilduh, 1nsane, and Chromǯ.
Johan Jello’s first release, Augmentation EP, is now available on Shyfted Minds Records! This two track EP features just the kind of atypical hard core sound that Shyfted Minds strives to make available against the expected mainstyle, dark core, and cross breed.

In other news, Red Ankh‘s new double album with an orientation of darkness and symphonic composition is approaching completion, taking inspiration from acts like Dimmu Borgir, old Tristania and Sirenia, but still with moments of the typical uplifting Red Ankh sound. Predaking is working on a new four track release under his Divebomb alias, and K.H.D. is of course pumping out new tracks to be connected in a release sooner or later.
How awful how artists must live the regular lives of real people! Activity here at Shyfted Minds has been slow to stagnant lately, as many of us have been putting more time in to our other responsibilities. As owner, Shyft takes the blame, as he has been rather… troubled, let us say. On top of that, the need for a new job and possibly switching academic paths has been taking priority over music, but we have no intention of quitting! Things are slowly working toward stability once again, and you can expect new great things from this organization beyond that point.
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!
‘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.
As Shyft types this he is listening to the new K.H.D. double album that shall soon be released, ‘Project Afterlife Transmission’. It is wonderful. Every track is finished and arranged; we are waiting on cover art. Predaking’s new EP is growing in to a new album. Demon’s Breath decided to scrap the EP that we were waiting on as an official release, due to complications postponing the release and feeling that his work on those tracks has become outdated. He hopes to release some thing new with us in the near future. Dustrict’s collaboration with a new artist is still in the works; samples have proven interesting so far.
As for Shyft? As is typical, life has gotten in the way and I have not been able to focus on any art projects in a long time. Despite the projected date, the new book’s release is suspended indefinitely. The writing is done; the editing is done; the sound track is done; and most of the cover art is done, but I still have no idea how to properly market a piece of writing and training a one man marketing team and then making a plan tailored to a specific product takes time that I just don’t feel comfortable devoting to it right now- and I want to do it right. It is majorly frustrating, but at least I have crept back in to my music studio… Red Ankh Gray, the industrial metal double album, is finally nearing completion. Seven of the twenty seven tracks just need vocals recorded, and two of them need instrumentation work; the rest of them are complete. I shall also soon be pressing the priority of remixes for My Webbing Come Undone, so that I can finally release a single of that track alongside the symphonic break core album that features the track- an album that has been complete for almost a year now. Better patience I am learning. I used to be able to do every thing at once, writing ten albums and three hundred pages per year. Things have changed, and I’m getting used to it.
Here we go with Predaking’s second solo EP. It’s like what you’d expect but better than before! It has a remix of Demon’s Breath’s ‘Synthetic Altered Brains Can’t Feel Love’. Click the image to track it down for free. It’s what you want.
In other news, SNORKADORKABORK! K.H.D. is working on new tunes again and all other music releases are suspended indefinitely as we knerfdrefkebluk…
