"Myllennium“ is our first big studio album which we plan to release bundled with our first-ever live performance DVD. While writing our new songs, we wanted to give ourselves a lot of time for the creative process: we wrote the lyrics, recorded demos*, and actually went back to the drawing board several times in order to bring our new songs to perfection. Finally, we are satisfied with the results. Everything, from the songs to the demos and the material for the live DVD, required a certain amount of effort that, we are proud to say, met our expectations. The next step for us now is to record and produce our album in cooperation with a professional studio to get our songs ready for a CD release as well as preparing our video content for a DVD release for you, our fans. Ideally, we are planning to release our album as a non-digital CD/DVD bundle on the 1st June 2015. This last important step, however, is only possible with your help. Music without fans doesn’t work – we need you to help us finish this project!
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
Our goal is to produce and release our album „Myllennium“ together with our first live performance DVD. We are planning to do as much of the work as possible in-house. Not only does it allow us more freedom to be creative, but it also ensures that we will be able to provide our fans with the best possible experience. We have a very particular and detailed vision for this album, and in our minds we know exactly the tone and sound we’d like to set for it. However, only with your support will we finally be able to realize this project. We, as a band, are convinced that the new material will not only thrill you guys, but also fans of other Metal genres. Fans that enjoy Alternative Metal and Nu Metal (such as System of a Down, Emil Bulls, Korn, Slipknot, Avenged Sevenfold) will definitely enjoy our new album.
Why would you support this project?
With your support, you will enable us to record our songs and our DVD in the best possible quality. In addition, your bundle will be sent to you before all other orders are fulfilled. Not only do you have the chance to pre-order your bundle now, but we also have put together some exciting rewards that we will only offer in combination with this crowd funding campaign. This is a one-time offer and an once-in-a-lifetime chance to turn Soulbound into your own personal fitness trainer or your support for spring-cleaning. Yes, we are serious; you can pick your desired offer below.
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
Here are the estimated expenses for the full album project:
Recording & Mixing - 2100 €
Mastering - 1000 €
Production CD, DVD & Jewel case - 1400 €
Any extra money will go towards the costs of distribution/promotion of the album and other projects such as a music video for the first single, a Myllennium tour, Myllenium merchandise or a professional album promotion. Another possibility could be the funding of a different packaging for the CD/DVD, e.g. a digipak instead of the jewel case for the retail bundle version. There is no risk in it for you: If we don’t reach the target amount of money for this campaign, you will receive a full refund.
Who are the people behind the project?
The realization of our new album „Myllennium“ as well as our live performance DVD requires not only our dedication as a band (Johannes Stecker (voc.), Felix Klemisch (guit.), Patrick Winzler (guit.), Jonas Langer (bass) and Mario Krause (drums)), but also the dedication of our amazing behind-the-scenes team. Without them, this would be impossible. Special thanks to:
