After two albums and over 70 concerts, it is now time for the world to receive a third album from us - Morlas Memoria - on which we will once again combine metal, rock, orchestral moments, and classical sections along with harder and gentler parts in the form of at least ten songs.
We want to produce a new album which will surpass our previous work in every respect. We have created this campaign because we want to ensure that all the people involved in the production process - there are about 25 people who work for us in various areas - are paid fairly.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
Our goal is to ensure fair payment for all the people involved in the production process (in addition to the band). About 25 people (not counting the six band members) are involved in the creation of the album.
The money will be used to cover the total production costs of such a project in a wide range of areas.
The project itself is meant for all those who are willing to explore the sounds beyond the boundaries of radio-friendly pop music and appreciate opulent music.
Why would you support this project?
The new album will contain great songs, which will be the best we have created so far, both musically and thematically. Unfortunately, good music only partly appears out of thin air and can only be realized to a limited extent without financial means, if you have to deal with basic survival at the same time.
Therefore we need you!
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
If we reach the final funding goal, we can finance the following production steps by paying the people behind them fairly:
1. recordings of the whole band (drums, guitars, bass, keyboards, vocals) in a good recording studio with sound engineer 2. recording of a twelve-member choir in a church together with a sound engineer 3. recording of a classical ensemble together with a sound engineer 4. mixing of the music by a good sound engineer 5. mastering of the album in a specialized mastering studio 6. creation of an artwork (created by an artist) 7. creation of visual material (photos) by a photographer 8. shooting of a video clip for the upcoming album with a good crew 9. the production of the CD itself
If we can only achieve the first funding goal, we will not be able to implement points 2,3,6,7 and 8 of our vision.
Who are the people behind the project?
Standing behind this huge project are the musicians of Morlas Memoria, which are:
Leandra Johne - vocals, lyrics Theo Johne - Composition, guitar, vocals Florian Baum - arrangements, composition, orchestral production, guitar Oliver Kunze - keyboards, piano Sebastian Leibe - bass Samuel Clauß – drums
