Post Re: Until Death Overtakes Me - news / updates

We had 7 tracks, some complete, some advanced prototypes - about 45 minutes worth. I don't recall what other tracks (if any) were planned, but 45 minutes makes me think there would be more. I'm also not 100% sure that the 7 tracks i have here were all intended for the album.
Work on these stalled due to various non-music things we had to deal with. We never managed to pick up where we left off with these.

However, it wasn't going to be a proper follow-up to the first album, there were plenty of differences. After so much time having passed, i don't know if we could create something that sounds anywhere close to that album (should be even want to).

3 of these tracks (early or short versions, and like i said - unknown if they were to be part of the album) were put online however :
Cerberus Trisector : https://archive.org/details/Infra1008_Cerberus
On the 7th Day : https://archive.org/details/Infra1009_OnThe7thDay
Obsidian Sorrow : https://archive.org/details/Infra1007_Obisidian

They're not new, though - these are all from 2010. They were released under the 'Infra' thing we had going for little over a year, which were monthly single releases of stuff we did with The NULLL Collective. Towards the end we opened it up for other bands, but there was a lot of work involved in keeping it going, so i eventually had to stop doing it.

I got the context alright, I should have said "unreleased" instead. ;)
It's one of those collaborations that manage to condense the best of all participants. there're a couple of others like that which are brilliant (off the top of my head: Thou/The Body and Opaque Lucidity/Aglaomorpha).

On the 7th Day, I'd forgotten all about that track, I vaguely remember intending to do a few more tracks in that style but it never happened.
We should do a follow up when we're in our 80s (should any of us live that long), then the last one of us alive releases the album on their death-bed; proper funeral doom, haha!

80s? Man, that's only like 45 years or so to go. Better start getting stressed out.

Anyway, i have some new UDOM material : the 3rd and final part of Flow of Infinity, called Dawn Spirits. And of course, the resulting album, called "Flow of Infinity".
As mentioned before, this is a bit of a different album. I focussed only on sound and composition, not trying to put in any theme or mood. As a result all 3 tracks are more relaxed, and fully instrumental. Working on these tracks was a rewarding experience, and i think it's some of my best stuff, especially this 3rd track, Dawn Spirits.
Warning - if you think my regular stuff is boring and repetitive, you might want to skip this one. To make matters worse, i added a 56-minute bonus track with almost no guitars. :p

As per usual, the album is free, and can be gotten from bandcamp : https://udom.bandcamp.com/album/flow-of-infinity

Early merry/happy whatevers.

Got a new track online, called "Lights of Infinity" - check it out here : http://nulll.net/udom/tracks.php?id=19

In related news, the old "I Dream No More" album (from 2002) is now on Bandcamp. I remastered it and also included the tracks from the 2009 split CD with Dios Incandescente. Free download/stream from : https://idreamnomore.bandcamp.com/album ... remastered

I have another album out, this one's called "They Know".

Download for free on Bandcamp (including bonus tracks for approx 106 minutes worth of music) : https://udom.bandcamp.com/album/they-know

This album (minus bonus tracks, else it wouldn't fit) is also available as CD-R. Check out my store page for more info : http://nulll.net/udom/store.php

Still no news on the 2nd album that should come out through Dusktone. It's been finished for 9 months now and in the label's hands for 6, so perhaps we might still see a release this year.

In related news I recently remastered the "Lost" album by one of my side-projects called "In The Mist". I stumbled onto some recordings from 2010 that were intended to be turned into an album, but I never ended up doing that for some reason back then. I rectified that situation last month. Check out the Bandcamp page (https://inthemist.bandcamp.com/) which as both albums listed.

MA listing Missing album will be released on 30 of July, this year... not sure how reliable this is.

Will check the new album, lost track with UDOM since Symphony III - Monolith which was a extremely good album...

I think there's a consensus about that one. I love it as well!

30th of July might be too optimistic - there's still some stuff to be done on the graphics - but I wouldn't mind if it were true.

Missing is a wonderful release, I really love it, classic and great UDOM material=)

I also streamed They Know quite heavily, it's very pleasant also, though it is quite atypical in structure - numerous, shorter than usual tracks (fortunately they flow perfectly=), is there anything behind this change?

Glad to hear you like them.

There's no conscious reason behind the shorter tracks (except those for the Donate-for-doom system, which usually turn out longer than requested), but it's a different way of working.

The songs on 'They Know' have each been written, mixed and mastered in a vacuum, seperate from each other. There's no big concept behind them individually in most cases, nor one that ties them together. Sound-wise they might differ from one another for the same reason.
Songs on albums like 'Missing' might still be written over the course of long periods of time, but here I do aim for a concept or story that connects them. I don't start my final mix until everything has been written to make sure the sound doesn't differ too much between them.

It just seems to happen. Perhaps it's because the songs on the collection albums are rarely written with a purpose ahead of time. I usually start by working out some or other random musical idea. Only if it evolves into a song, I start wondering what it might be about. Songs on an album involve more planning, less randomness. Both are fun ways to create music, but I feel the latter works better for 'proper' albums.
