New Releases Very Soon

‘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.

From the silence… shadows…

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an official release, due to complications postponing the release and feeling that his work on those tracks has become outdated.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.

Two new hard core EPs!

Dustrict’s debut hard core EP and a new K.H.D. EP will both be released this Sunday, April twenty-second to commemorate K.H.D.’s birth day! The Demon’s Breath EP is awaiting artwork, and should be ready soon. Shyft’s break core and Red Ankh’s industrial will be released some time before for ever.

In other news, life has gotten in the way of the remixes of Shyft’s My Webbing Come Undone seeing completion, as well as the Red Ankh Gray album.

K.H.D.’s new gabber album is now up! It’s his crispest, wildest release yet! It has got some interesting collaborations on it, too. Down load it now for free by clicking the image above! Check its info here.

In other news, Shyft’s symphonic break core album called ‘Her Dark Square’ has been fully remixed and remastered, scheduled to be released when the single from it called ‘My Webbing Come Undone’ is also complete. The single will include an industrial hard core remix by K.H.D., a dub step remix by Johnny Foreplay, and a break core remix by Sir Vixx. Red Ankh’s industrial metal double album ‘Gray’ is in the midst of being recreated, with less than a month to completion. Demon’s Breath also has some thing new lurking around the corner… Shyfted Minds is bringing in the new year proper!

Presenting K.H.D.’s first full length album: Life Influences.

What started as a five track EP just kept on getting longer, and for a good cause! This album is host to twelve monstrosities of melody and drum. You want it, and it wants you. Click image or see the discography section on the right column for free HQ down load.

Also, here’s a little some thing on the side (well, it was a ton of work, but you know). It’s been getting some flak from the die hard fans with no respect to experimentation and electronic music elements, but such is to be expected. Tradition won’t last for ever!

Shyft Versus DJ Istapp – Hard Drive, Over Driven EP

This is a release that has been on the back burner for quite some time, due to the promise of being picked up by an other label. After being neglected by that label for almost a year, it came time to get it out there on Shyfted Minds. The Shyft version was previously released on SHM048 – In Check, but has been remastered for this release. A handful of good remixes, including one by Imil, K.H.D., and T2Kazuya! Grab it now.

Also, you should check back here again in the near future.  There is a solo release by DJ Istapp, K.H.D., and our newest member, DJ Gilga.  DJ Gilga participated on New Collective Audition, doing an awesome trance remix of The Sorcerer.  His debut on Shyfted Minds will be a full trance LP.  Check back soon for these!

Chip Tune Metal History in the Making

Red Ankh’s Blue album has been remastered and released to the greater public. Red Ankh’s Blue Two is complete. This is the future of chip tune and metal. The discography section has been updated accordingly.  Each album holds eighty minutes in thirteen tracks.  That is twenty six songs spanning two hours and forty minutes.  There are cute as hell NES, SNES, Game Boy, and Atari sound chip based synths.  There are a range of unconventional vocals.  There are Progressive journeys.  Uplifting anthems.  Loud guitars.  Stomping beats.  Exactly four gabber kick drums.  It’s a magical journey through all of your favorite video games that never existed, in your choice of high quality audio format.  Yes.  Magic helmet- AND I WILL GIVE YOU A SAMPLE!

Also, a little (joke) surprise:

Red Ankh chip tune metal single(s) up for grabs!

The tracks Orion and Wonderland I am releasing early as a teaser/promotion for the up comping Red Ankh albums ‘Blue’ and ‘Blue II’.  Chip tune and metal at its finest!  Down load the single(s) here, or stream the tracks below. These aren’t going in to the discography, and won’t be available like this for ever.

 

Red Ankh – Wonderland by Shyft

Surprise Red Ankh Release!

Despite the reality of Universe and in spite of modern human technology, a Red Ankh EP has managed to travel back in time to fulfill the needs of the present moment.  That’s right- SHM052 has found a way to cheat the system and see a release date before Throw Me a Happycore Record (SHM051) and the up coming Shyft remix album (SHM050).  How could this happen, you might ask?  Well, you will have to down load the new EP and ask it, your self!  Even if it doesn’t answer, the twenty three minute plus epic, A Change of (Speechless) Reasons, is sure to please beyond question and logic.  Head over to the discography page on the right for an extended description and a down load link.
