Post Until Death Overtakes Me - news / updates

Since recently, UDOM's been releasing stuff again on a new UDOM website : http://nulll.net/udom

Plans
For the time being, my aim is to release new material (or previously unreleased) as free downloads on my site every so often. I don't really see the point in having albums, since i can't afford to press any and they'd be free to download anyway. I might as well stick with single tracks since i can release those the moment they're ready rather than having to wait until an entire album is finished.
There's still the album deal i signed with Dusktone, but communication with them is slow, so i have no idea what the status is. I have material ready for a 70-minute album, but if things keep dragging on, i'll just start putting it on the website.

Old albums
There are 3 unreleased UDOM albums. Though i've listed them on my old website at some point, these were never in a state ready to be released right away - think of them as rough mixes.
One of these was called 'Before', which was to be a single-track album. I released an ambient version of this track a long time ago (think it was 2003), but the actual 50+ minute arrangement for the album appears to be lost. I made a new (and much shorter) version which is part of the tracks for the album i mentioned above.
Another one is 'For', of which a short version was released somewhere in 2010. This was also going to be a one-track album, and again the arrangement remains unfound. I'll be making a new arrangement for this track at some point.
Finally, there's the 3rd album which has changed names several times, i think the final version was to be 'no sun, only dust', containing 3 tracks from 2003-2005. Of these 3, i have recovered only 1 so far. The plan with this one track is to record it anew, and then it'll probably appear on the website.

Other projects
I have no plans to continue any of these. Any music i write will end up being released under the UDOM name. Since i don't care too much about albums anymore, there's no real need to label all these different musical explorations in great detail. There isn't that much unreleased material compared to UDOM, but i plan to revisit some old stuff and re-arrange or re-record it.
We'll see - as usual, i'm in no rush.

Ruinous is my faviourite of the new songs but I also like Ultraphrygian Prime a lot, you mentioned it was supposed to be under one of the other projects, before you changed the whole "methodology" of releasing music, care to say which one, as i cannot guess it which kinda bugs me?=)))

We've approached UDOM for our MDB tribute album... there should be something in the pipe as we speak....

It's not that Ultraphrygian Prime was supposed to be for my other projects, but if i still had them i think it'd be halfway between The Ethereal and FOTGWO.
The difference is that i'm a bit more free in what i can release for UDOM now, since tracks that are too different no longer get moved to other projects.

ha! You're confusing with the guy of Tyranny. Wormphlegm are/were from Finland, UDOM is from Belgium.
It seems a long time has passed alright...:laugh:

Post Re: Until Death Overtakes Me - news / updates

feels like a reunion of sorts

@ SVC: yes, still doing dark ambient etc. stuff, hopefully I can manage to get something done for a change; it's been too long ...

@ DarkenedSoul: hey Mike, been a long time too, everything fine over here.
Keep in mind, never give up, give it some time, like I do; if you worry or rush it, it won't turn out good.
read you soon

but we drift off, back to UDOM:
I've listened to those new creations, and I have to say, to me they top everything else you've done with UDOM this far, great job

Hey Mike - it's been a long time for sure.

Yeah, rushing things or worrying doesn't help - i've slowed down a lot (which is odd seeing the nature of my music), but it really helped. I'm far more relaxed, and while i'm spending a lot less time each day on my music compared to years ago, i seem to be more productive. And in the end, the whole process is more enjoyable.

Good to hear. I thought you were involved with wormphlegm? Guess I was mistaken from what I read some time ago....either way, nice to see you still kicking bro! And yeah, I should just get my ideas down into MIDI and go from there as time permits. Jo, what you sent last year was pretty cool and in the vein I want to go with Mired In Twilight (or DS, depending....).

Mike

Got a new track online, called 'Well Of Dreams', something a bit more ambient with a touch of drone.

Download it here : http://www.nulll.net/udom/tracks.php?id=7

Another new track online - this one's called 'Old Hell'. Mp3 downloads are here : http://www.nulll.net/udom/tracks.php?id=8
I'll be looking into a way to provide flac files for all my tracks as well. There are flac files available for the donate-for-doom tracks since those are so short, but i don't have the webspace currently to provide these for my longer tracks.

As i'm still working on both my sound and the technical aspects of mixing and mastering, i've decided to remaster the donate-for-doom tracks. All 3 of them can be downloaded from this list : http://www.nulll.net/udom/d4dtracks.php.
I'll have a look at the other tracks i've released thus far too one of these days, as they can also use a better mastering pass.

I have a little update on the Dusktone album deal. The old 3-album deal has been cancelled, but a new 2-album deal has taken its place. Things are still moving at a (suitable) snail's pace, so i can't say anything about a possible release date.

Great news about a cd release even if it is only 2 albums now. Can't wait for some SVC wizardry, it's been far too long.

Most of the new UDOM material is going to be released as free single tracks through the website, rather than on albums though. I don't have anything against albums, it's just not feasible to put them out at the rate i'm writing music again. Since mid 2015 i have created 3+ hours worth of new UDOM material, of that about 70 minutes is for the album, 70-80 minutes has been released on the site, and the rest are tracks that are nearing completion. Not all of that is going to be typical UDOM stuff however, since i no longer have side projects to which i can move the more drone or ambient tracks.

I can't afford to release albums myself, so i have to rely on labels. Even if i find interested labels, it would still be tricky to get enough interest to release one album a year. Double-CD albums could be a solution, but with small printruns it might not be worth it for a label to invest in. I have to be realistic here - UDOM isn't going to appeal to large groups of people, and probably fewer in the future than in the past, and on top of that physical releases are becoming an ever smaller way to deliver music through.
Finally, a big drawback of albums is that only people who afford them are going to be able to listen to the music (unless when people download them, but then what's the point of having a physical album to begin with?). Making sure the music is easily available is important to me, else i don't really see much point in releasing anything at all.

It's fantastic that you are so productive again. I have been craving new UDOM material for so long=)))

Btw, have you considered using bandcamp? I have no idea how is it from musician's perspective, but it's a great way to spread music.
