As you may know, Transubstans Records had a busy year right from the start! Here's an overview about the next releases and latest signings:
+ SIDEBURN ON THE MOVE
Swedish Doom/Heavy Rock act Sideburn is back in the studio! In the fall of 2012, they will release their fourth album (second with Transubstans). To give everyone a little preview of the majestic tones that take places in their music, Sideburn will launch a digital single (Diamonds / Crossing The Lines) from the album in the end of May.
+ SPACE MIRRORS SIGNS WITH TRANSUBSTANS
International Space Rock/Metal collective Space Mirrors was founded in 2002 by Russian multi-instrumentalist and producer Alisa Coral. Since that time Space Mirrors released three albums and featured many talented musicians from all over the world. Space Mirrors' music is often inspired by Sci-Fi, alien conspiracies and esoteric topics. In 2011 Alisa Coral started composing the new album, called 'In Darkness They Whisper'. The songs of the new album are inspired by the metaphysical, cosmological and occult concepts developed by H.P. Lovecraft in his stories.
The music combines elements from heavy and melodic space rock to epic/prog metal. It has more focus on delivering fine crafted tunes but not forgetting the initial space rock fundament. The cover artwork is once again created by Kevin Sommers.
The new line-up includes musicians from Russia, Italy, UK, USA and Denmark, including the legendary Nik Turner (sax, flute) and Alan Davey (bass) of Hawkwind fame, the Space/Prog Rock virtuoso Cyndee Lee Rule (Spaceseed, Osiris the Rebirth) on violin, Massimo Arke of Opposite Sides & Hortus Animae on guitar, Fabio "Amon 418" Bartolini of Hate Profile & Hortus Animae, John Pack and Allen Welty-Green of the known American space rock band Spaceseed, Sparky Simmons (Acid FM), Bjorn Jeppesen â€“ a synth player well known for his electronic music Nattefrost project, and Martyr Lucifer (Hortus Animae) on vocals.
