The first review of The Astronaut's Return´s "now then waves" just came in. German only, but it´s a good one - the author even references my solo work, which was nice to read! ;-) In case you haven´t heard their EP yet: http://theastronautsreturn.bandcamp.com/album/now-then-waves - I produced, mixed, co-engineered and played guest guitar on it.

“It gives me great pleasure to anounce that I’ve joined Obscura as their new guitar-player. Having already worked with Linus and past members Christian and Hannes in recent projects and having followed the band’s career closely since their very first tour, the transition felt completely natural. Taking over Christians duties in the band makes me feel equal parts proud and at ease, since we’ve known and respected each other for many years. I’m very much looking forward to touring the world with my fantastic new band-mates, entering the studio for a new record VERY soon and also being able to bring my playing on both fretted and fretless guitars to a wider audience through this exciting new opportunity.” – Tom “Fountainhead” Geldschläger https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RnAwrSbV9Lo “Tom “Fountainhead” Geldschläger and Sebastian Lanser will add some new and fresh vibes to Obscura’s trademark sound. Adding fretless guitars and more fusion drumming will definitely influence our songwriting. I am looking forward desperately to work with this new talented group of musicians on the fourth record. At the moment we are in the middle of writing new material, rearranging previously written ideas and start preparing the upcoming liveshows in 2015. First festivals will be announced soon, worldwide touring activities follow the album release. With a new record, intense performances and a full live production we want to meet our fans & friends around the globe!” – Steffen Kummerer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxEebmkGF8U&list=UUataELRNhqTkp2_9qfeHc4g Fountainhead is the alter-ego of guitar player / composer / producer Tom Geldschläger.

"Now then waves", the debut EP by The Astronaut's Return just got released at https://theastronautsreturn.bandcamp.com/ . I'm very proud of my friends Guido & Kristof for doing something that's completely their own (we call it "meditation metal") and for finally sharing something with the world that's been growing and evolving for a looooong time. And of course I'm also proud on my work on this (producing, mixing, recording, lots of sounddesign, ambient&slide-guitar on track 1, fretless guitar on track 2). So please give this unique record and band a chance!
