December 16th, 2010: "Second" flourishes...


Just completed another track for the new album "Second". Strange one this time. Strange days too...will upload an excerpt from the sketch shortly...now get some rest...


...update...no sleep...no mix...no tuning...here you are...


October the 20th, 2010: ∆D with Eyes Turned Skyward: "Distant Impacts" released


We´re proud to present our 5th album release, as usual a 110 minute first-class ticket to space, where darklighted harmonics and tonal transformed emotions melt into sublime fabrics of sound...

'Eyes Turned Skyward' means present, evolution and future in unification. Thoughts and emotions melt into one floating shape, always developing within a free spirit, beyond the limitiation of industry and commerce. 'Eyes Turned Skyward' is more than a transmitter for a new musical flow ... Holistica


The album is available on iTunes and other sites. We like to feature a fresh distribution platform called Bandcamp, where our music is also available as audiophile lossless FLAC format!

Help us wake the world...


10th October 2010: ∆D with Eyes Turned Skyward: "Extracted Skies" released

10 days to go for "Distant Impacts"...



3rd October 2010: Thoughts


...sunny autumn morning, complete incompleteness growing...creeping into my day...sublime yet unignorable...you´re back, my siren, my hydra...and you will take your part...drowning me slowly. It calls me, soft and tender in dreams of unfulfilled connections, reflections...people lost...regret...yet in distance lies a past unrealized, my vision, my love....


September 30th, 2010: ∆D with Eyes Turned Skyward: Release dates


Yeah, the last weeks were quite chaotic. Preparing the Darkseed-Live-Setup for the upcoming shows and rehearsals. Sadly we had to cancel a fixed concert date on 23.10.2010 in Kiev due to logistical problem. Hope to get to you in 2011! And not to mention Oktoberfest in Munich...OMG...


Well, nothing more? Right, I´m happy to announce that there will be TWO CD-releases in the next weeks!


The first release is scheduled for 10.10.2010 and will be named "Extracted Skies". It features 7 great ETS - themes with around 70min material.

The second release will be available on 20.10.2010 and will be named "Distant Impacts". It will feature 4 tracks with over 110min running time.


9th of September 2010: ∆D - New Track on the way

Last night I finished the sketch for "Picture#1". Still a lot of fine tuning here and there to do...will post a sample soon...get some sleep...get it out of my head...eyes forward...


2nd September 2010 - ∆D with Eyes Turned Skyward: currently finishing 4th album


Summer´s on the leave, sadly. Time to get some new dreamy stuff ready...


25th of July 2010 - armindoerfler.com with 20.000 site-hits


Since its relaunch in April 2009 we counted 20.000 website hits on armindoerfler.com. In times of 500.000 youtube hits per day on nonsense-videos this may seem unimposing but is a very special day for me. I know that my music is too unconventional and unwieldy for the broad public, it´s special stuff for special people. And just because of that I´m extremely pleased to see YOU here. Thank you very much for your support and spiritual resonance.


23rd of July 2010 - ∆D with Darkseed: "Poison Awaits" in stores today!!!


"...Today we are celebrating the German release of our long-awaited album “Poison Awaits”. We want to thank all our fans for sticking with and believing in us all those years. Hopefully we can live up to your expectations one more time..."

1st of July 2010 - ∆D with Darkseed: "Poison Awaits" scores 9 of 10 points review @ www.reflectionsofdarkness.com


We´re glad to have the first review for "Poison Awaits" here for you. 9 out of 10 points sounds quite promising =).


"...‘Poison Awaits’ is yet another milestone in gothic metal. Everything is pretty great about this album because it is not only an album that can get crowds energized at a concert it also likely to find the music in a metal club somewhere. Something that one can dance or mosh to bears excellent marks. DARKSEED have come a long way sing their 1996 debut, but it is fitting that ten years later their work sounds better. Perhaps earning their new vocalist was the best move for them since his range is excellent and he knows how to emote himself in a gothic metal style that is both fresh, yet expected. The electronic elements are well placed without turning things into techno and the guitars - along with the drums - feature more than enough distortion and heavy chords to make DARKSEED still pretty heavy metal certainly worth checking out for fans of HIM or THE FORESHADOWING..."


In the next days we´re going to release a short teaser video with excerpts from the recording sessions!

Another one lost another one found...


Today I finished another track for the next album. Picture#3 is a gloomy and athmospheric piece inspired by the painting of Bianca Bach titled "In der Zwischenwelt".

Check out her website and have a look at her gorgeous, unique style of painting. 




4th of April 2010 - Picture#3 layout finished


The track will be featured here shortly, it still needs to be polished...a quite muddy gem from the rock of time...

23st of March 2010 - Googlewave account and Facebook group online


Time goes by and it seems that fan-forums will soon be a relict of the past. With the new tool from google (wave) there´s the next step coming, a personal multichat/messenger/mail/blog/forum-hybrid. For a direct contact you can add the ∆D account to your wave.

11th March 2010 -  weeks?? months??? here´s Pic#2...


Feeling pain has at least the benefit of driving the creativity. I just overdubbed and cut my drumrecording, so faster than expected here is the roughmix of "Picture#2".

This piece is quite a bit lighter than my usual stuff, promising, uplifting and hopeful and bears one of the sweetest haunting themes since "Celia"... tell me if you find it =)




09th March 2010 -  2 new Pictures...


Gathering the raw material for "Second" is quite effective these days while the winter melts away, leaving the snow with a crumpling grey disease. I also laid out the first themes and tracks, yet only 2-3 minutes per piece which is normal in this composing stage. Over the next weeks and months I will let them flourish, hopefully =).



5th March 2010 - Next "Eyes Turned Skyward" Release imminent


Be prepared for the next "Eyes Turned Skyward" album to be released in the next weeks! In the meanwhile you can watch our new pre-release teaser clips on www.eyesturnedskyward.de !



2nd February 2010 - Time to move on


Every now and then it´s time to clean the studio up a bit. So I´m just selling some of my old EMU E4X Samplers, Roland and Oberheim Synths on ebay. Goodbye old friends, find a new home...



18th of January 2010 - Synth- Audio-Clips from the upcoming Darkseed album


Here are a few Synth-parts from the upcoming Darkseed album, your first chance to get an idea of what we´re working on...but don´t focus on the Drums and Guitars, they´re only guide tracks...



15th of January 2010 - Synth and Keyboardarrangements for upcoming Darkseed CD finished


Today I finished the layouts of the Synth and Keyboardtracks for the new album. Just a few parts and minor add-ons will be done next week. This time we will have some nice unisono parts together with Tom´s lead guitar giving the classic Darkseed sound a new kick in a more technical direction. Not as much sound FX as on the last CD but a little more live-feel will do the thing =). Here are some "behind the scene" pics of working environment...



10th of January 2010 - Eyes Turned Skyward - Cosmodrome available on Oszillation and iTunes 


It seems that our guys at iTunes had similar new-year-problems as well, but finally the new "Eyes Turned Skyward" album "Cosmodrome" is available! You can purchase it here. And never forget, keep your eyes turned skyward.... 




1st of January 2010 - Severe hangover
