Draumurinn að gera plötu

"Mig langar til að við stimplum okkur inn í menninguna. Vera ekki bara einhver hljómsveit að spila til hliðar."

- Ásþór Loki, 16 ára.

Meðlimir hljómsveitarinnar eru aðeins 11, 15 og 16 ára - En þrátt fyrir ungan aldur hafa þeir spilað víða og dreymir STÓRT.

Með 19 evru áheiti eða hærra, þá ertu í raun að kaupa plötuna þeirra í forsölu og bókstaflega að gera þennan draum að veruleika.

Skipulagið við útgáfuna er frágengið því tilboð hafa borist í alla vinnuna. Upptökur, hljóðblöndun, útgáfu og svo framvegis. Það þýðir að þegar áfanga #1 er náð, þá hefst vinnslan og þú færð plötuna í haust og ekkert rugl!

Meistarar Dauðans stóla sem sagt á að þið séuð Stuðningsfólk Dauðans.

Áfangar söfnunarinnar

Söfnunin leitast við að ná ÞREMUR áföngum. Við hvern áfanga aukast stig af stigi verðlaun ALLRA sem heita á okkur 19 evrum eða meiru. Því meira sem safnast, því meira færð þú.

Áfangi #1

2500 evrur (um 368.500 kr.) - Þetta er upphæðin sem þarf til að taka upp 10 laga plötu, hljóðblanda og tónjafna og útbúa plötuumslag og textabækling á PDF og dreifa stafrænt.

Áfangi #2

3.392 evrur (um 500.000 kr.) - Að viðbættu öllu sem safnað var fyrir í áfanga #1, þá er þetta upphæðin sem þarf til prenta, pressa og pakka geisladiski og senda heim að dyrum.

Áfangi #3

4.721 evrur (um 700.000 kr.) - Við öllu viðbættu sem safnað er fyrir í áföngum #1 og #2, þá greiðir þessi upphæð fyrir veglega útgáfutónleika í Reykjavík með góðu kerfi, ljósum, tæknimönnum, léttum veitingum og fleiru.

Drekinn - Fyrsta lagið tekið upp sérstaklega fyrir plötuna

Lögin

Á plötunni verða tíu frumsamin lög og sem stendur koma þessi tíu lög sterklegast til greina að verða fyrir valinu:

1. Drekinn
2. Dýflissa hugans
3. Klikkaður
4. Shub-Niggurath
5. Villtur
6. Skrímslið í garðinum
7. Sálfræðingur dauðans
8. Vögguvísa
9. Annaðhvort
10. Hlauptu

Sálfræðingur Dauðans

Lagið hlaut Upptaktinn, verðlaun Barnamenningarhátíðar 2013. Það var sérlega útsett og flutt af klassískri hljómsveit og sungið af Jónasi Sigurðssyni.

Ásþór um frumsamda tónlist

„Við spilum allskyns tónlist og allskyns lög. Það er auðvitað gaman en það er ekki síður gaman að semja eigin tónlist. Frumsamin tónlist sýnir fólki hvað maður er að hugsa á hverri stundu. Það er einhvers virði að dreifa hugmyndum og veita innblástur, er það ekki?

Textar hvetja fólk líka oft til umhugsunar um tungumálið. Til dæmis er ég oft spurður út í texta eins og Drekann sem er fullur af myndhverfingum og gaman að sjá hvað fólk les út úr honum. Svo erum við auðvitað reglulega spurðir út í nafnið á hljómsveitinni sem hægt er að skilja á fleiri vegu en einn.“

„Þótt við spilum allskonar tónlist, þá finnst okkur skemmtilegast að spila þungarokk. Það er tónlist sem hefur sannað sig, er langlíf og tekur sífelldum breytingum. Þeir sem hlusta á þungarokk gefa líka öllu séns, maður getur prófað allskonar og þungarokkarar þakka bara fyrir sig og segja svo það sem þeim finnst. Tónlistin skiptir þá máli eins og hugmyndir eða gæludýr.

Nú vonar maður bara að fólki finnist við eiga að fá séns á að gera góða plötu.“

-Ásþór Loki

Dýflissa Hugans

Ásþór Loki bjó til Dýflissu Hugans 2012-13 fyrir Meistara Dauðans. Þessi útgáfa var tekin upp sem óvænt afmælisgjöf til hans á 13. afmælinu 2013, af þeim Kristni Snæ Agnarssyni (hljómsveit John Grant) sem hafði forgöngu um afmælisgjöfina, Magna Ásgeirssyni, Þorsteini Einarssyni (Hjálmar) og Inga Birni Ingasyni (Ritvélar Framtíðarinnar), Birni Þór Jóhannssyni (Trassar & In Memoriam) og Rúnari Þór Þórarinssyni (Trassar) pabba Ásþórs. Aðeins voru gerð 15 eintök af diskinum.

IN ENGLISH

Debut Album Project

Meistarar Dauðans* are ready to make their first album. A pledge for only 19 Euros guarantees you all the entire album. There are 3 goals and the more we reach the more you get, as described below. The album will be shipped in October 2015.

*The direct translation of the band's name is "Masters of Death" but it is slang phrase which is hard to translate exactly, but goes something like "Masters of Kickass/Masters of Awesome"

The Dream

"I want to punch us into the culture. Not just be some band playing on the sideline."

-Ásþór Loki

The band members are only11, 15 and 16 years old, but they have played and performed as a unit for many years and dream BIG!

By pledging 19 Euros you are actually are buying their record beforehand and literally making this dream come true.

The making of the record is fully organised as we have concrete offers for every part of the production; recording, mixing, publishing and so forth. That means that as we reach the first Goal of 2.500 Euros, the work starts and you will get the record this autumn and no nonsense!

The Masters of Kickass/Awesome - Are counting on you being Kickass/Awesome fans.

Funding Goals

The funding has THREE milestones. The prize gradually gets bigger for everyone that pledges 19 euros or more, the more milestones we reach. The more collected the bigger the prize pile.

Goal #1

2500 euros - This is the amount needed to record 10 songs, mix and master them as well as make a cover and booklet in PDF and distribute digitally.

Goal #2

3.392 euros - In addition to everything collected for milestone #1 this is the amount needed to print, press and neatly package a physical CD and deliver everything to your door.

Goal #3

4.721 euro - In addition to everything collected for milestones #1 and #2 this amount pays for a big release concert in Reykjavik with good sound system, lights, technicians, light refreshments and more.

The Dragon - The first song recorded specifically for the album

The songs

The record will contain 10 original songs. As of now these ten are the most likely candidates:

1. Drekinn (The Dragon)
2. Dýflissa hugans (Dungeon of the Mind)
3. Klikkaður (Insane)
4. Shub-Niggurath (Shub-Niggurath)
5. Villtur (Lost)
6. Skrímslið í garðinum (The Beast in the Garden)
7. Sálfræðingur dauðans (Therapist of Death)
8. Vögguvísa (Lullaby)
9. Annaðhvort (Either or)
10. Hlauptu (Run)

Therapist of Death

This live performance was arranged for a classic ensemble and given at Harpan, Iceland as a part of Ásþór and Þórarins Children's Foundation Award in 2013. Musicians Jónas Sigurðdsson sang and Hafdís Bjarnadóttir co-arranged for the classical ensemble.

Asthor on original music

"We play all kinds of music and all kinds of songs. Of course that is fun but it no less fun making your own music. Original music shows people what you are thinking at that time. Isn't it valuable to spread ideas and inspire?

Lyrics often motivate people to think about the language. I´m for example frequently asked about lyrics like The Dragon which is full of metaphors and it's fun to see how people interpret that. We are also regularly asked about the name of the band which can be understood in more than one way."

"Even though we play all kinds of music we like playing heavy metal the most. That is a kind of music that has proven itself, is long lasting and ever changing. Those that listen to heavy metal give everything a chance, you can try all kinds of stuff and heavy metal players just say thank you and then say what´s on their mind. The music is important to them like ideas or pets.

Now I only hope people think that we should get a chance to make a good record."

-Ásþór Loki

Dungeon of the Mind

Ásþór Loki wrote "Dungeon of the Mind" for the band in 2012-13. This version, however, was recorded as a suprise-birthday present by adult musicians and printed in only 15 copies. The initiative was in the hands of Kristinn Snær Agnarsson (musician/drummer John Grant´s band, Baggalútur and more). The others were Magni Ásgeirsson (vocals, Magni), Þorsteinn Einarsson (guitars, Ásgeir Trausti, Hjálmar), Ingi Björn Ingason (bass, Jónas Sigurðsson og Ritvélar Framtíðarinnar), Björn Þór Jóhannsson (guitars, Trassar & In Memoriam) and Ásþór´s father Rúnar Þór Þórarinsson (guitars, Trassar).
