Another interesting project I recently worked on: Upiór - and their new single is more than just "Reality 2020"... Give it a listen if you're into old school Death Metal... Here's the cast:
Tomasz Jaskula - guitars, music
Chris Bone - vocals, lyrics
Sebastian Stachowiak - keyboards
Hubi Hofmann - bass, mix/mastering
David Superior - drums
Finally "Songbook" by my Ohrange bros is released! We produced that beauty right before the big Corona bang in February @Slash Zero Studio. Unfortunately they cannot play a lot of shows this year, so please support them by purchasing their 180g limited purple vinyl as it is their 1st time on wax. After that go give 'em a stream while waiting for personal delivery!
Landslide Diary release their 2nd video (directed by Tom '3 Voddi' Eberl) to their latest chart-smashing uber-single "Panic" (from their upcoming album "In Presence Of Pages" - which you can pre-order NOW at Fond Of Life Records and which was produced here @Slash Zero Studio). So quickly get your limited purple vinyl and then binge-watch/stream the song!
My friends Simon & Dennis from The Prosecution started their own Punk band called Landslide Diary... They're online NOW, so give them a digital hug and watch the video (again filmed by the amazing Tom Eberl) to their debut single "Raging Waves" (produced @Slash Zero Studio). You'll also see some well known faces from AntiPeeWee and Corinore :)
Because of the current situation my Ohrange bros can't play their regular 100 shows a year, so they decided to release 100 videos instead. Here's #42 for this year: "Streichholz" (from their album "Songbook", produced @Slash Zero Studio) - again filmed by the fabulous Tom Eberl, and if you look closely, you can catch a glimpse of Slash Zero Studio in the video [unfortunately one of my monitors crashed during the filming...]
Being not only a record producer, but also a freelancer offering mixing and mastering services, the 'single hype' finally also arrived at Slash Zero Records...
I was recently given the honor to mix and master "Afraid Of The Dark" by GodSpeed2 and Frank Bell. You better check it out on Spotify, YouTube, or your streaming service of choice, as there probably won't be a physical copy... (of course I've also contributed some instruments and vocals to the song, as on most productions - sometimes credited, sometimes not...)
bloodshed revolution is the name of the game
a path that's older than its breath
this world's out of disorder but the rules they stay the same
so join our legions of death
With those kind words about today's situation GumoManiacs release their new video "Legions Of Death" (filmed/cut by Hubi Hofmann, with a little help from Tom Eberl) from their upcoming album "Morbid Tales Of Terror" (which was, you guessed it, produced here @Slash Zero Studio). Watch the video, stream the Spotify, and then tell your friends...
Can you imagine that one day your government decides that the music you love is illegal and therefore you'd have to go to prison and because of that they even shut down your business, arrest your employees, and people around you villainize you and your family, so the only option you have left is to leave everything behind and walk away?
Well, that ain't no made-up story - it really happened to the legendary Iranian rapper Dariush Ravi... But he decided to fight this injustice, move to Germany, record 5 songs here @Slash Zero Studio, and now he's released his first official 'legal' EP called "Kuch" (Farsi for 'migratory bird').
Please take a listen on Spotify and support him on Bandcamp (you can donate anything and get the EP in highest audio quality). One thing's for sure: even if you don't understand Farsi, you can tell he's a damn talented rapper. Spread the word so that something like this won't ever happen to anyone else again... Peace!
This thing is so damn controversial you either love or hate it: My bros from Ohrange released a music video to "Denk An Mi..." (directed by action-shot.tv) from their last album "L[i]eben" (which was produced here @Slash Zero Studio). And for those of you who haven't been at the Kurve yet, check this out...
Mastering the new "Dubplate Selection Pt III" by Simba Sound was dub - but the 500g dubplate itself is even dubber! Unfortunately you can only listen to these songs if you attend their live events, so please be patient...
I recently mastered "Lower Bavarian Pizza Hits" - that's the new LP by Noah Monoton, Attune, Old Europe, David Schreck, Unifono, Relups, and NLY1P, who gathered under the name of Pan De Dan to support their local (and possibly the best) pizza store. From today on you can grab your limited edition vinyl copy housed in a special pizza box from Pan De Dan's pizza shop in Vilsbiburg EXCLUSIVELY! No need to argue about dinner today!
These cool fellas from Filistine release their new album "Loƒe" today! We produced, recorded, and mixed that thing last year in November @Slash Zero Studio, the legendary Ludwig Maier mastered it, and now you should grab your 180g vinyl copy (or CD if you dig rare audio format), or at least give it a stream - you probably got some time to spare these days anyway...
Milk (w/ coffee) + MyMüsli + Mastering = great start for Dynamic Range Day 2020...
If you love music and are an audio nerd like me, you'd better check out Ian Shepherd's webcast tonight, as there will be lots of great sounding music recommendations and this year's award winner! Let's produce some great sounding records this year!!!
My friends from Burden Of Life release their epic new album "The Makeshift Conqueror" (which the legendary Christian Kötterl and I co-produced in August last year @Slash Zero Studio) via NoizGate Records today. Be sure to grab your copy at Bandcamp! You could also stream it, if you're kinda old school...
