New album “The Vanishing” released

I am happy to announce that painted coda’s new album The Vanishing has been released! It is a much darker release than the previous Eternity—if the new art and imagery hasn’t given it away already—in terms of both mood and sound. Each song in The Vanishing tells a different story (except for the two “Portrait” tracks which tell the same story), and a few are somewhat surreal. Some common themes between these stories are obsession, loss, and depression. Songwriting for the album started in late 2016 (before the release of Eternity), and twice the number of tracks were written, but only half of them made it to the final release.

Currently, the album is only available through Bandcamp (fully streamable), but there are plans of putting it on more services. It will also be fully streamable on painted coda’s youtube channel, as with previous releases.

Please check it out. I will be very happy if the album is able to connect with you in any way 🙂

“Songs from the Dark” turns 3 years old

As the post title suggested, three years ago on this date, painted coda’s first album Songs from the Dark was released.

The album’s writing process took place over the course of 2-3 years. There were a few more songs that were planned for the album, but were left out since they didn’t really quite fit in, or wasn’t “good enough.” Being the first album, the production wasn’t as good as the later ones, and thus was remixed (with some parts being re-recorded) a year later.

While I would love to go back and remix/remaster this album again (along with asleep), there isn’t any plan for it yet. Still, I’m very proud of it!

And now, 3 years later, a fourth album is about to be released very soon…

New site launched!

A new site for painted coda has been launched!

The old blog has been moved to a different link, and is still accessible via “Blog” in the site menu, if anyone’s interested in reading my old posts, which were mostly music reviews (mainly classical music).
