Free Celldweller

10th Feb 08 (Sun) Leave a comment

I’ve been a fan of the musician currently known as Celldweller for, geez, who knows how many name changes… :-) Anyway, I thought I already posted a blog along these lines, but I s’pose I haven’t… perhaps I just dreamt it.

Celldweller‘s got a free demo track up on his Fixt Music imprint.  Go Here for a free download demo version of “Birthright.”  It’s from his upcoming album [1]

Celldweller started as Brainchild in 1992 (or so), then went by Circle of Dust [2], worked with/produced other hard-industrial acts Argyle Park & Klank, then collaborated with (magician) Criss Angel with Angel Dust [3], then officially started going by Celldweller with his debut in 2003 (Celldweller was the moniker he formerly only used as producer).

His music is what I’d call melodic hard industrial.  Very catchy, hooky, danceable, but with a definite edge.  He’s totally indie (CDBaby artists represent!)… but regardless of no major label presence, if you’ve watched movie trailers in the past 5 years, you have heard his music (most notably on Spidey trailers).

Anyway, go download a free track.  Also, check him out on the MySpaces.

Oh, and rarely can an artist write a song that’s so hooky that I don’t get sick of listening to 3.5+ hours of the same song (remixed)… the Take It & Break It, Volume 2 collection of “Frozen” is stunningly fresh [4] after 3 jam-packed CDs of the. same. song. :-)

Disengage is a fabulous record and very similar to Celldweller now, but maybe a touch darker…
[3]- Anyone else remember the Ricky Lake
[5] appearance?
[4]- Or stuntingly fresh?
[5]- *shudder*
