Like what you hear?
Then why not leave a tip for:
Say hello to The Formative Beers ‘91 - ‘97, a compilation of 38 remastered Buddard demos from the good old days! The songs were all transferred from cassette tape, carefully restored and then digitally remastered.
You’ll find the album over at www.buddard.com. There you can stream it and buy it in a number of different formats (MP3 320, WAV, FLAC, OGG, …) — Pay what you want, from 0 EUR and up! The album should also appear on Spotify within a couple of weeks. Or you can just grab the torrent (MP3 320, about 295 MB) if you’re so inclined.
The album is of course released under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0, some rights reserved.
It is with great shock and sadness that I have received the news about the passing of an old friend of mine, Paul Raven. He died in his sleep early saturday morning of an apparent heart attack, just 46 years old. My thoughts go out to his family and friends who have suffered an incredible loss.

Almost two years ago I made a remix for Swedish synth-pop band love|less of their single “Something about you”… Well, “remix” may not be the best word to describe it: I threw out everything but the vocals and basically built up an entirely new song around them. It was a lot of fun to do, but I was afraid that the band would be put off by the rather unorthodox combination of metal and reggae. So I sent them a copy of my work-in-progress, and they liked it!
The result has yet to be released, but love|less vocalist Micke Askernäs tells me that it might show up on a remix EP/album in the near future. In the meantime, you can download it in our covers & remixes section.

I just discovered that our contact email account has been full for the last two months or so. No wonder we haven’t received any mail lately… Fixed it now. Apologies to those who tried to contact us during this time, please write again.
Today’s date being what it is, we could hardly resist releasing this old project that’s been lying around for a while now: Sassathare: “Lords of Abomination”. Originally recorded on a 4-track porta studio in 1995, this is probably one of the first examples of industrial black metal ever.
After the original master was lost (someone stole it when we played it at a party and it was probably destroyed), I remixed it from scratch in 1996, giving it a much more unpredictable and dangerous sound. The second master was also lost, but I found it again several years later. I transferred it to hard disk and remastered it last year, and now the time has finally come to unleash it in all its glory. Enjoy!
I finally put up a proper page for the remixes and cover versions made by immaterial music & friends. Enjoy!
