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.

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…

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.

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.

New, new, Divebomb, Divebomb!

You want some more hard core? You do? Good. Wait- you DON’T!? Oh. Never mind. Of course you do. Here be an other free EP from Divebomb, low-BPM side project of Mister Predaking. Three originals and one Predaking remix here. Click the image above and snatch it up. Or don’t. OR DO, CAUSE YOU’RE NOT A FOOL.

In other news, K.H.D. is putting the finishing touches on his most excellent new release, and Shyft’s next installment of Synthetic Experiments shall be released on the twenty-third of September. In the mean time, taste this teaser:

Shyfted Minds of Metal

For the purpose of better organization, Shyfted Minds will from now on delegate its heavy metal releases to a sub-label, Shyfted Minds of Metal or SHMM. It’s catalog begins with deluxe versions of Red Ankh’s Shadow and Gray double albums, which include instrumental versions of songs. Through this label Red Ankh enters in to the digital retail realm, but these albums can still be purchased for cheaper on Bandcamp, and the instrumental tracks are now included as free bonus material on that channel. Follow the link path through the image above to these, if you have yet to acquire them and would wish to do so.

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!
