This might just be the best James Bond theme song ever written. I liked Adele’s Skyfall, too, but this composition is more versatile and Sam Smith’s falsetto is just unbelievable. The orchestral arrangement – the horns and the strings make this a really sweet piece of music. The video suits the song perfectly.
Right after I had bought my Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, I was shocked. I was used to the convenience and good design of my previous Android phone, which was made by HTC. I didn’t have too much trouble with the HTC. I didn’t feel the need to customize the phone too much. Almost everything worked … Read more
I was listening to XPLAIN’s wonderful music, and found Man Without Country through her Facebook page. I had heard many of MWC’s remixes before (Miike Snow and Moby to name a few), but hadn’t realized that Man Without Country is much more than just a remix team. They’re great songwriters too. Today I listened to Man Without Country’s song called “Laws of Motion” and I was blown away. What a melody, and timeless sense of beauty. I strongly recommend getting to know this band. There’s a certain 80’s appreciation in their sound selection, but mostly they sound very contemporary. Seems like I’ll be spending the next few days listening to Man Without Country.
A very talented artist, XPLAIN will join us for two nights of the Override Tour – Leipzig 9.11. and Magdeburg 10.11.

This new Bon Jovi song is one of my favorites on “Burning Bridges”, which is not your typical Bon Jovi album. There are several gems on this album, though it’s not a coherent masterpiece such as “These Days”. Other great picks from the album are “Blind Love”, “A Teardrop To The Sea” and “We Don’t Run”. Though not my favorite, I quite enjoy “Saturday Night Gave Me Sunday Morning” as well. It’s the only song on this album that is co-written by Richie Sambora. His influence can be heard clearly, especially in the chorus. The track would fit nicely on “Have A Nice Day”. Almost every track on “Burning Bridges” includes some sort of “Ooooh” vocals, which gets kind of old after a few spins. This is a refreshing album, and has great moments, but it’s far from Bon Jovi’s best work.
Seriously, this new P.O.D. song is out of this world! Sonny Sandoval and Maria Brink deliver very emotional and grungy vocals, not to mention Marcos Curiel’s epic guitar work. Everything is in the right place. Listen and learn.
Assisted by Radio Darkfire, Unzyme will head on tour in Germany in November 2015. The tour will begin in Berlin. Our plan is to visit Leipzig, Oberhausen and Magdeburg as well. Local bands will join us at the experiments. Right now we’re in talks with Second Version and Theatre of Masquerade. At the same time we will … Read more
We advertised on Facebook a few years ago and got lots of likes. The sad thing is, too many of them are fake likes, and now they’re seriously crippling our reach to the real people who would actually be interested in what we do. So, instead of helping us, buying Facebook ads has made it a lot harder for us to reach even the audience that we used to have before the campaign. And now, to get the message through, we are asked to pay to boost the post. Having spent way too much money on Facebook advertising already, we refuse to pay more. If there was an easy way to delete all the fake likes, we would do it.
If you’re an artist who has done the same thing, spread the word and stop paying for Facebook ads. But if you do, it’s a good idea to check the organic matter percentage of your followers. Skynet might already be self-aware.
This song was born in a rather unusual way. We wrote the song together with Ville, using a method that we call “combosing“. In combosing, a team of composers write music into a predefined song structure without hearing each other. Writers are given a song structure, and each section of the song is described in some … Read more
Germany is our #1 goal, so we’re attending an informational event about Germany’s PR and media landscape, organized by Music Finland. The event is called “Aus Finnland PR & Media Workshop“, and it takes place on April 8th, 2015. It’s going to be a very exciting event, so we hope to see many of our … Read more
We record every experiment on at least two GoPro cameras. The main purpose of this is to see how the performance actually looked like, and what could be done better. This is especially great in post mortem situations, when something has gone terribly wrong. It’s the black box of failed experiments. But it’s not just for … Read more
I was on an urban exploration trip in Estonia in 2013, when I first heard Imagine Dragons’ Radioactive on the radio. I thought it was a really nice song, but the style of the song seemed like I might not enjoy a full album of such material. My bandmate Ville had also told me about … Read more
In an earlier rant I talked about the current MacBooks being a bad choice for musicians. Now Apple has decided to make things even worse. They have decided to make it more portable, at a very fucking high cost of performance and connectivity. It will also suck to use these computers for any kind of … Read more
I built a nice Gear Vending Machine for Unzyme, to sell band merchandise at our experiments. Soon I realized that the merchandise system needed a cool way to present the prices. I listed a few requirements that had to be met. It needed to be… Compact and lightweight Cool-looking and attention-stealing An erasable surface that … Read more
