Production and cover design for ‘Sin.Sin’ debut EP ‘Fairytronics’

Another great act chose our team to take care of the production and cover design.

Kristell Lowagie (also frontwoman of belgian Goth Metal band Lovelorn Dolls) launch her solo-project ‘Sin.Sin’ with a beautiful 6-tracks album out now via Alfa Matrix label.

Known for her work as the lead singer of the goth rock / industrial metal band LOVELORN DOLLS, and although she has already collaborated as guest singer with some electronic musicians in the past (PSY’AVIAH, AIBOFORCEN, JUNKSISTA…), Kristell L., literally opens herself up on this new SIN.SIN project through which she spreads her butterfly wings and reveals a more colorful side of her personality. And her winning teamwork on SIN.SIN with the Italian genius producer Maxx of HELALYN FLOWERS for both mixing and production gives an absolute twist and spiritual dimension to the project.

If you enjoy bands in the likes of MARSHEAUX, PJ HARVEY, CLIENT, TORI AMOS or yet CHANDEEN: Follow the rainbow and check the fascinating and moving “Fairytronics” work of SIN.SIN. “Ah, Ah, these pretty songs, I want them! More and more…”!

“As a producer, besides a musician, this is what you can call a ‘pride’ with no hesitation. I spent some of my past 2015 digging the beautiful world of SIN.SIN, the new project of my dear friend Kristel LoveDollz and I’m now going ahead with the debut full-lenght LP out later this year.
Rather than words, I wish you all are taking a listen to the debut EP “Fairytronics” which is out today via Alfa Matrix, a label that’s always showing courage and determination in let new pearls of uniqueness rise and shine.
Last but not least: if you like this EP buy it. It’s 5 Euro, less than a breakfast. Show your support to the true underground music.”
Max Helalyn Official / AzTech Room 

A fresh and vibrant artwork has been released by Noemi / Toxic Visions Design and you can listen to Kristell’s Ethereal dream-pop release below!

Helalyn Flowers release new EP ‘Beware Of Light’ featuring Blutengel’s Chris Pohl

Recorded and produced at our Az Tech Room studios, Helalyn Flowers release a brand new EP ‘Beware Of Light’ featuring Blutengel ‘s Chris Pohl! Cover design by Noemi Aurora / Toxic Visions Design

The exploding Italian duo HELALYN FLOWERS strike back by surprise and hit us with an amazing new 6-track EP!

The “Beware Of Light” EP is first of all the result of an amazing collaboration with Out Of Line artist Chris Pohl (BLUTENGELTERMINAL CHOICE, etc.) showcasing a hyper catchy and successful vocal duo together with N0emi Aurora for a darker and more romantic goth version of this dynamic and highly melodic title song.

 

But this EP is also a true tour de force of metallic industrial rock with the apocalyptic “Karmageddon” which reveals HELALYN FLOWERS’ harsh and angry face! Featuring muscled incisive guitar riffs, revolted female vocals, upbeat electro beats and carrying synth lines. Two strong new songs announcing a more than promising 4th studio album “Sonic Foundation” that is scheduled for an early Spring 2016 release…

“Karmageddon” was also morphed into a techno dance club hit by the Brazilian electro masters of AESTHETISCHE while the cult German act THE PSYCHIC FORCE turned it into a vibrating elektro dancefloor pounder with hypnotic guest vox by DJ Michelle himself; and “Beware Of Light” also received the remix treatment by XMH for an upbeat cyber punk retake.
HELALYN FLOWERS are ready for the next level! Are you?

‘Beware Of Light feat. Chris Pohl’

‘Mutilation’ + ‘Traces’ Cover Design for ‘The Psychic Force’

So proud to have been chosen as designer from the cult dark electro band The Psychic Force.

German duo Michelle Christiansen and Jörg Charnowski commissioned me to design new cover artwork for their  previous albums “Mutilation” and “Traces”, (remastered and with quite some bonus tracks, and available on Bandcamp at the links below) giving me total artistic freedom to portray ‘a mutilated mechanical body‘ and ‘ the thought that we already have traces of our past in our genes even before we are born‘.

These are the results.

Lorraine Casey – Fury Road cover design and photography by Toxic Visions

Welcome to life Lorraine Casey!
During the latest months I was involved in various visual projects for very talented musicians.
After my contribution as a graphic designer for the release of female-fronted Electro-Metal act Elyose (they’re collecting a huge response with their latest album ‘Reconnexion’! ) I finally can share with you another great work that I had the pleasure to take care of as a photographer/art-director/graphic designer and make-up artist.
Lorraine Casey is a young musician at his debut, tainted by a fresh Punk/Rock warmed by old-fashioned shades of classic Blues.
