Far From Mind
FAR FROM MIND – dark-gothic-metal band
FAR FROM MIND was incepted by Dirty Scoundrel in February, 1995 as a purely experimental project aimed at reflecting the author’s current state of mind through music. FAR FROM MIND’s music, though insufficiently rich and saturated to be purely instrumental, used to be voiceless for quite a long time. Meeting with Tim in 1998 helped decorate FFM with vocal parts and English lyrics (D.I.Y.B. Vol. 2). Over several years’ span, the tandem covered a wide range of genres, including psychedelic rock, progressive rock, noise industrial and psychedelic metal. The duo’s second joint opus named Timely Death became a turning point in FFM’s history. As of today, the band members tend to view it as their first big project. Musically, Timely Death varies between psychedelic rock, progressive rock and noisy industrial. FFM’s next record entitled Mentalligence is probably the least experimental work in the project’s history. Stylistically, this album can be characterized as psychedelic metal. The ‘2003 mini album Remind Me Later was virtually a piece of progressive rock mixed with sympho rock elements. All these albums gained high acclaim in both underground and official musical print media. In 2005, the project gave birth to a milestone promo single named «Ecce Homo» piloting a full-length album under the same title. The album was a mixture of synth gothic rock, progressive rock and sympho rock; basically, it indicated the direction in which the project would evolve.
Apart from the mainline represented by Ecce Homo, FAR FROM MIND recorded two experimental mini albums in 2005, namely, Need No Music and No Option. Both of these stylistically appealed to dark ambient aesthetics, thus demonstrating project’s diversity. The difference between these two is that the first one conceptually aims at highlighting the music of the surrounding sounds in everyday life, while the latter was specially written and played live as part of Project 356-0-356 initiated by Philipp Volokitin.
In 2007, FFM recorded an EP entitled Anytime demonstrating the band's focus on gothic rock sound and piloting a full-length album. However, the album entitled "33" (the age of the musicians at the time of making the album) was marked by yet another metamorphosis in the band's priorities, and what was expected to be a more or less trendy goth rock stuff eventually turned out to be a massive dark metal album. A self-released version came out on 2 CD-Rs (33: the night album and 33: the light album) and is available via email order (like others).
In November 2008, FFM signed a contract with More Hate Productions for releasing the album in 2009. The album was released on one CD and entitled Breakpoint ’33.
In 2007, FFM also released a box-set named "12.5: the early years anthology" covering the 12.5 years (by that time) of the band's diverse and intricate history in music.
