European Tour With Beyond The Black

In April, I’ll be hitting the road alongside the Symphonic Metal band ‘Beyond The Black’ again: this time for their European ‘Dancing In The Dark’ tour.

After last year’s tour through Australia and New Zealand and a lot of big festival appearances, I am happy to hit the road again with them. They’re simply great people and and I enjoy playing with them. Especially their vocalist Jennifer Haben is an outstanding talent.

Live shows with Alkaloid and Obsidious

I just turned 39 years old. When I look back on my career so far, there were a couple of important milestones. One standout was my nearly decade-long tenure as the bass player for Obscura, a band I dedicated a lot of time to. Touring with them taught me the value of teamwork amidst the inevitable stress. Within Obscura, I formed close bonds with two lineups – one of them with Hannes Grossmann and Christian Münzner. When that lineup disbanded, our bond led us to establish ‘Alkaloid.’

Later in Obscura I composed and toured a lot of years with Rafael Trujillo and Sebastian Lanser. When we all decided to part ways with the band, it felt amiss to abandon our chemistry, prompting the birth of ‘Obsidious.’

Though both bands share similar origins, they’ve cultivated distinct musical identities that I’m immensely proud of.

Now, I’m thrilled to announce that both bands will perform together this year, with three shows scheduled in Germany/Austria in December. It’s a formidable challenge, given the complexity of both bands’ music, but I enjoy challenges.

Live shows with both of my bands

2024 will be a year filled with different live performances! Another highlight for me: Alkaloid will play with classical musicians in the context of a Bach festival.

I hope you out there!

New Remix of “King Of Hearts”

It’s already been 5 months since the release of “Tulpa”. As we mark this milestone, I’m thrilled to share some exciting news with you all. One of the standout tracks from “Tulpa,” the first single “King Of Hearts,” has been given a fresh twist by none other than the talented Javi Perera.

For those who aren’t familiar, Javi is not only singer on the album and vocalist of my band Obsidious: He’s also a producer and a genius when it comes to sound design. He added extra synths, explosions, orchestras, choirs, reverse vocals and cymbals…now it sounds like the song’s on steroids. It’s really interesting to hear the 2 totally different mixing approaches. Right in the beginning you can also hear a piano arrangement from Vanesa Jalife that we added to this version.

Stay tuned for more updates, and check out the “King Of Hearts” remix by Javi Perera:
