2:58 pm by Chris. Filed under: News

Much Mefisto news. First off, Mefisto has a new Youtube channel, launched with the first of a series of musical journeys called “The Odd I See”. Chapter 1 is available for your viewing and listening pleasure now!

Also in Mefisto news, they have a new Live Audio Cassette release called “Zone Dwellers” to be released within the next couple of weeks. The first of a series of cassettes featuring bootleg live recordings. These will be seperate from, or rather in addition to, studio albums (the new one of which should be recorded later this year). So stay tuned for that, the tape release will be very limited, but it will be available for download as well.

If you need help keeping up to date with Mefisto news, they have a new Twitter account (MefistoMusic777) and a new webpage: www.Mefisto.rocks

New Mefisto Release, On Vinyl, Coming Soon!

1:47 pm by Chris. Filed under: News

The long awaited new Mefisto album “Our.oboros” (Ouroboros) will be coming out very soon! (most likely next month!) This will be our first release on vinyl as well, and we are working very hard to make it a very nice one. We just received the test pressings, and are still working on jackets/sleeves and any necessary tweaks and such. Due to the nature of the process I cannot yet give you a specific release date, but I can tell you that I will keep the news section here on the site updated, and those of you in the Los Angeles area will be invited to a kickin’ record release party as well! We’re currently contemplating doing a digital pre-release to amp up excitement also (as we are pretty confident that when you hear this record you’re going to dig it).

Ouroboros Test Pressings

I also feel the need to inform you that we’re working on putting together a Live Show for Mefisto and will be announcing show dates for the summer as well.

On that note, have you liked HyperFireRecords and/or Mefisto on Facebook yet? Are you following HFR on Twitter? We would like to keep you posted on upcoming shows and release dates, but help make it easier on us!  If you have any suggestions as to how we might get news to you easier, feel free to leave a comment below or send us a message!

5:11 pm by Chris. Filed under: News

Greetings, Hyper Hyperions… today’s news item includes HFR’s new BandCamp page (currently still in the works, but feel free to check out our progress during the process!) ~> hyperfirerecords.bandcamp.com

On this bandcamp page, which we intend to integrate with the individual album pages on this site, we plan on housing all the most recent & cleanest mastered releases of all Hyper Fire recording artists, which will be available to stream for free or download for cheap, from your computer or smart phone type device whenever and wherever you want! [When you purchase a physical cd, you will also be given a code to download a digital version from the site for free] This means our ‘Out of Print’ albums/records will now become available through the bandcamp site as well!

All full length albums will be available for a mere $7 ea.! All EPs will be available for $4 ea.! And any, ANY individual songs will be available to download for you to take with you and play whenever you want, and give to whoever you want, for a mere $1.00 each!

Each album will continue to be available to stream in sequence in it’s entirety here on the HFR site on the individual album pages for FREE. You only pay if/when you want to download!

We still highly encourage free public trading / torrenting / downloading / etc of any and all of our music. And for those that want to download our albums without paying for them, there are still places they can be found AND our SoundCloud page will continue to be updated with FREE individual tracks to download. (including this week’s new track which will be featured at the bottom of this post)

However, for those of whom are interested in showing a little love/respect/support, it will now be immensely easy to do so. Remember, each dollar you spend is like a vote you cast. Do you want to keep voting for the same corporate swill over and over again? Of course not… So if you find a track or an album or an artist that you dig, why not throw some funds the artist’s way so they know you connected!

ALSO This Week’s new ‘HFR’ F R E E download is now available on SoundCloud, and is by “The Disclosure Project” from the upcoming album “The Mystœry Schools” and features some words by Chris’s much respected teacher/friend/colleague Dr. Stephen A. Hoeller. Check it out!
