About "Beyond The Wall Of Sleep"

My name is Christian Muenzner, I'm a guitar player and composer from Bad Neustadt, Germany, I play for the bands Obscura, Spawn Of Possession and Paradox. In 2011 I released my first instrumental solo album "Timewarp", now I want to release my second album "Beyond The Wall Of Sleep".

Check out 2 tracks (fully mixed) from the album here:




The reason that I decided to go for a crowdfunding campaign is that in the small niche of instrumental music it is almost impossible to find a label which gives the necessary support to produce a quality album unless you're a really big name, which is why most instrumental albums feature drum computers and cheap artwork. Not to mention that even though my bands are popular, my name is an individual is not, which is another reason why a label won't take the risk to finance such an album in times of constantly declining record sales.

I want my album to be of the same quality as a serious band release, including real musicians, the best possible sound and production and a quality cover and artwork. If you agree with me on that, please help me to make it happen!

What I Need & What You Get

The money will be used to produce the album and the T-shirts and posters. The album production costs include:

- drum recordings

- mixing and mastering of the album

- the cover artwork and illustrations

- the pressing of the CD's

I intend no personal enrichment with the collected funds, any potential left overs will go into fees for the awesome musicians who despite their busy schedules invested a lot of hard work, time and energy to help me to record this album.

The album will feature 11 instrumental tracks which are a logical evolution from Timewarp, such as the tracks that can be seen and heard in the videos above. 

Check out Jimmy Pitts tracking some solos for the album (note: Jimmy is tracking to the pre production tracks with programmed drums on those vids, the backings you hear there are not the album versions):



The album will feature great artwork by Anestis Goudas (http://www.anestisgoudas.com) who also desigend the Timewarp album. It will come with a 12 page booklet illustrating the album concept, which is based on old mystery and horror stories by H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe. The cover you see above will also be on the T-Shirts and on the posters.

Here is a preview of what the shirts will look like:


All the perks include worldwide shipping, no matter where you live.

The Line Up

Even though this is a solo album, it is performed by a complete band line up which consists of:

Jimmy Pitts (The Fractured Dimension, Spastic Ink, Pitts/Minnemann) on keyboards

Linus Klausenitzer (Obscura, Noneuclid) on bass

Hannes Grossmann (Obscura, Blotted Science) on drums

The album was mixed and mastered by Per Nilsson (Scar Symmetry) in March 2014 and will feature guest soloists Danny Tunker (Aborted) and Terry Syrek.
