The final Shyfted Minds parent label release and K.H.D.’s new album are both here! Both pay-what-you-want (free)! BOTH TOTALLY RADICAL. Click the images above to be directed to the appropriate Bandcamp pages! Use exclamation points with us!!! If you liked the complex, triplet chord melodies of To Forget a World back in twenty-ten and Forgotten Worlds of Inverse in twenty-eleven, not only do you get to hear updates of those tracks (finally, a decent master of To Forget a World!); you also get to hear Shyft’s conclusion to the mysterious trilogy. The original cut is nearly ten minutes long, and full of ups, downs, key changes, and style changes. There’s also a DJ cut for the timid… Why you hard core fans so timid? We’re talking about Down the Road of No Return, SHM100. It’s also got songs by different core members of the label remixed by different core members of the label.
K.H.D.’s new album, Mechaspirit, marks the second release on Shyfted Minds of Hard Core, the new home of hard core releases here at Shyfted Minds. Cing of Cogs is on there! Remember? The gothic horror concept album? But that’s not what we’re talking about here. You kids these days, so easily distracted. Mechaspirit is a whole sixteen tracks long, and you’ll find a remix of a big Ophidian tune on there. Check it. Snorkadorkabork.
Here we gooooooooooo! Scorpyd’s doin that boom boom thing again. Two tracks, typical aggressive style, on most digital retailers again, but we’re linking to Google cause Google is the least dicks. ENJOY!
-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!
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…

The submission phase of the untitled SHM060 hard core compilation album is now closed. Twenty two tracks were approved for the album, but sadly there is not enough room for all of them. After the best tracks are selected from the approved batch of tracks for each of the fourteen artist that are involved, we should have an official track list. We are waiting on one premaster, and if this is not received by Wednesday of this week, the track list will exclude it and be done. Right now I have received premasters from [my self], K.H.D. (of course), Imil, Predaking, Johan Jello, Aardwolf, O.P.B., Phydomir, Mosphire, Tilduh, Scorpyd (A.K.A. Inflicted Rage, Pyroblast), 1nsane, and Crippled. Hopefully mastering and cover art will be finished this week, and we can get this thing rolled out!
