New mixing-work just released! I mixed this wonderful almost-instrumental post-rock album for "O Graceful Musings Burden" last year. It was recorded and produced by the band themselves and mastered by the amazing Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice, Dysrhythmia). FFO: Godspeed...you black emperor, Krallice, Mogwai.

So, I´m back from the mini-tour with Nader Sadek : In the Flesh. Man, what an amazing trip! Intense shows, great people, great food, great memories. And cairo, oh cairo - you beautiful messy hellhole - I miss you already! And let me tell you, that moment when we had soundcheck and Attila Csihar´s amazing voice started coming from the PA, and I could see the evening sun reflect in the nile while we played? Goosebumps all over.... Before I post some pictures myself, here´s a set of terrific shots from the Cairo-show.

Another gig added: 19.04, Cairo w/ Nader Sadek : In the Flesh. The line-up for this (and the Neurotic Deathfest show a couple of days earlier) will be: Hannes Grossmann - drums ,Dimitry Khoury - bass, Seth Van de Loo - vocals ,Orestis Nalmpantis - guitar, and yours truly on guitar. I heard that Attila from (The True Mayhem) might make an appearance as well.
Obscura | Album Update #2:"We´re less than a month away from entering the studio to record the fourth Obscura album, the first one for Sebastian Lanser, Linus Klausenitzer and myself. Ever since the new line-up has been announced, each of us has gotten a lot of questions about how the new material will sound, especially wether it´s gonna be more straight-up death metal, more prog, or something else entirely... So here´s our answer: it´s all of the above! Steffen and Linus have penned the majority of the material so far. There´re shorter, catchier tunes based on Steffen´s signature riffing and lots of blast beats, which we expect to work great during the upcoming live shows. But the arrangements, which we all worked on together, also made sure there´s more dynamics, more intricacies like polymetrics, different layers of guitars and some new approaches to soloing. I on the other hand, made it my mission to contribute something that builds on and extends the sound of the band´s previous album : very complex, dark and (for lack of better words) "prog". The result is the longest and compositionally most ambitious song in the history of the band - a 15 minute epic featuring (another first for the band) a string section and my signature fretless guitar work. We´re definitely excited to finally enter the studio and share the new music with all of you - stay tuned for more updates during the coming weeks!" - Tom Geldschläger

Hey guys, as you know I very rarely post anything on this page that I didn´t work on, but this time I need to make an exception: Alkaloid´s debut, which I was fortunate to hear before the actual release, has been on constant rotation while I was (and still am) recovering from pneumonia. On this album I find many things that I usually miss from extreme-metal related releases: great musicality, dynamics, tones, diversity and, most of all, JOY of making music for music´s sake. In this rare case, please do believe the hype and check it out, ok? KILLER album.
