I’m happy to announce that my next new album, “Cellar”, will arrive very soon! Unfortunately at this point, I can’t share any more details about it other than a tiny bit of the artwork above, but this is going to be a big release nonetheless.

“The Tower Room” is released with new website and logo

The Tower Room

I’m very pleased to announced that I have officially released my new album, “The Tower Room”. It comes a year and two days after the release of “The Pantry” and is the product of many long hours of writing and recording. “The Tower Room” is a whole new direction for my music. While I have always tended to write darker music, I have now combined that with a more metal-like sound with the heavy use of guitars, bass and drums.

The album can be streamed for free on the music page and is available for purchase on the iTunes Music Store in many different countries. Spotify users will also find it available on Spotify soon. “The Tower Room” is also available in several different shops. A more detailed listing can be found in the shop.

  United States – $7.99

  United Kingdom – £5.99

  Germany – 6,99 €

  France – 6,99 €

  Japan – ¥1,200

The New Website

My website has also received a significant makeover to mark the release of the new album. It is darker, more gloomy and fits the mood of the new album far better than the previous design. It also makes use of many more modern web technologies making it a more interesting website with animations, sounds, etc. Another major update is the new player for songs which is now compatible with devices such as Apple’s iPad and iPhone that don’t support flash players.

The New Logo

The last significant update is my new logo. It is a logo created to be simple yet to fit the darkness of the music on “The Tower Room”. The “AS” in a handwritten, gothic-style font was chosen because it fit these criteria perfectly. While it appears on the website in a box, the logo itself is just the letters “AS”. It is simple, yet slightly unnerving which are two adjectives I have heard used to describe the new album.

Introducing Creeping Darkness

Creeping Darkness

It would seem that I haven’t been all that active since the release of The Pantry in March, but that is not entirely true. During that time, I’ve been hard at work on a new album which is almost finished and busy with my new band, Creeping Darkness, which I would like to take the time and introduce now.

The band is a Munich, Germany-based band and we primarily play hard rock. We have been together now for a while, but are now just getting to a point where we have a repertoire of songs ready for the stage and even ready for an album. Many of the songs are adaptations of songs I have created for my new, unreleased album and I have even uploaded a few of them as samples of our band’s music since we haven’t been able to record ourselves quite yet. So if you’d like to hear a preview of what my new album is going to sound like, head over to the music page on Creeping Darkness’s website.

The website is in German since we are a German band, but you can see it at http://www.creeping-darkness.de.
