Mathias Holm: Mindsplit sign to Lion Music

To celebrate the signing of MindSplit, May 21st 2010 sees a single and video release of the track ‘NMe - Myself & I’ taken from the bands forthcoming debut album ‘Charmed Human Art Of Significance’ (C.H.A.O.S.) which is set for release in the third quarter of 2010.

Taken from the forthcoming debut album "Charmed Human Art Of Significance" from MindSplit.

MindSplit are:
Mathias Holm - Guitars
H.B. Anderson - Vocals
Conny Payne - Bass
Jon Skäre - Drums
Jonas Lidström - Keyboards

MindSplit - NMe - Myself & I

Musically MindSplit is a mixture of Progressive Metal and Classical hard rock fronted by vocalist H.B. Anderson (Fire & Ice / Scudiero /Fatal Smile), guitarist Mathias Holm (solo artist), bassist Conny Payne (Madison / Alien), drummer Jon Skäreand keyboardist Jonas Lidström.

Their debut album ‘C.H.A.O.S.’ is an enthralling concept album based on the discovery of H.B. Andersons’ great old great grandfather Xerxes Anderson’s Artificial Universe (a.k.a. Prof. Xandau 1807 ~ 1851) notes from his therapy sessions. Prof. Xandau was a very respected therapist during the first half of 19th century and had his sessions all over the world based in both Europe and the U.S. These notes are the solid ground to this project and are used to tell a true story about psychological thoughts and human behaviours. This story line is set to a musically accomplished and captivating release which will draw the listener in from the first listen.

Full details on the album to be released soon. In the meantime check out the bands official websites for more information.

Apologies for the delay in posting the... just had a number of other pressing things to cover and have just got some time to post these.

Alex Hutchings really is a genuinely nice guy... he took lots of time out to talk to me and shred medium about boss, things he was working on and things to look out for at the show, including Frank Gambale's appearance at the show. It's obvious to me me that BOSS people have picked a really grat team with Robert Marcello covering the shred and rock and Alex covering the Jazz and Fusion, but both equally able to communicate and blow you away with their guitar ability, with that ever important ingredient... a sense of humour.
