Hello musical friends,
From the late 90s I've been busy with music, starting as a young keyboard player in a Dimmu Borgir/Judas Priest band (don't ask) to a semi decent bass player in an almost professional goth metal band in the 00s. I had a lot of fun playing with the people at that period in time. But now I'm on a crash course to DIY in black metal. Musically what I do is pretty atmospheric and slow from time to time, so I guess this would appeal to people who are into soundscapes, soundtracks, filmmusic, fantasy etc even though I'm not a technical player when it comes to both keyboard or guitar. I'm still trying to expand my knowledge when it comes to recording and mastering the instruments without losing focus on the prize: an atmospheric black metal kind of sound.
At this moment in time I'm looking for a vocalist so I can go into a studio and record the vocals. I also still have to dot the i's and cross the t's when it comes to the tracks. So this is the plan for the next couple of weeks/months.
Name of project:
- Finding a vocalist and write lyrics (together)
- Finish writing tracks
- Enter the studio for recording the Logic tracks and vocals and mix/master album (+/- 700 euros)
- Create logo for bandname (Christophe Szpajdel?) (+/- 100 euros)
- Artwork and photography for bandcamp page etc (+/- 100 euros)
- Launch (digital) album!
- Videoclip first trimester of 2019.
Some of these steps require funds I'm unfortunately to say I don't have. Asking the infamous Christophe Szpajdel is not the cheapest way to get a logo created (from 80 dollars to 500 dollars) but I won't be spending more than 150 on it simply because I think the majority of the money should be spent on the quality of the sound, not (just) a pretty cool logo.
If you'd like to sponsor me in a different way or if you'd like to get in touch (perhaps to donate something else) please let me know!
I hope you can get me started!

PS The donations will be kept safe on my partner's Paypal and at the end of the year I will check and see if I can realize everything. If I'm too short in cash then I'll let you guys know and you'll get everything back of course.
