MindSplit are a new band yet one with years of
experience behind its individual members. With
a style planted somewhere between straight
metal, progressive metal and classic rock the
band deliver a truly epic tale with their
debut album “Charmed Human Art Of
Significance” which is set for release on
September 17th 2010 on Lion Music.
Featuring veterans of the Scandinavian metal
scene in guitarist Matthias Holm and vocalist H.B. Anderson, the pair began writing and
recording together again in their spare time
c.2003 once again after the duo had worked
together in the late 80’s with “The ‘n’ Sin”.
When the music was taking shape bassist Conny
Payne (Madison) joined along with highly
respect sessions musicians - drummer Jon Skäre
and keyboardist Jonas Lidström. This new
collaboration turned into a whole different
ballgame though when H.B. found his great old,
old grandfather Xerxes Anderson’s Artificial
Universe (a.k.a. Prof. Xandau 1807 ~ 1851)
notes from his therapy sessions.
Prof. Xandau was a much respected therapist
during the first half of 19th century and had
his sessions all over the world based in both
Europe and the U.S. These notes are the solid
ground to this project and are used to tell a
true story about psychological thoughts and
human behaviours. H.B. Anderson comments,
“The memory notes declare what’s going on in
the human mind in different situations making
for compelling listening, although as there
are no names involved so it’s totally
anonymous. Its fantastic literature and
breathtaking reading, the human brain is very
complex and odd. You can say it sure lives its
This inspired lyrical setting led to the music
of what would become “C.H.A.O.S” taking on its
own personality. This story line is set to a
musically accomplished and captivating release
which will draw the listener in from the first
listen. Musically the album is big, powerful,
dark yet with subtle light and a very
impressive aura with a powerful production to
suit the mood. This has been further extended
by the promotional video for the song “NME
– Myself and I” which has received
positive reactions from YouTube viewers
