"Todd Rundgren and I were both on Panacea Entertainment's Management roster out of LA. I pretty much just begged them to show him my song 'Astronomicon' the entire time I was with them," adds Vind. "One day I got a forwarded message: "I'm ready now, send the track". He was done and had it back in two hours. No recalls. Nothing. The guy rules. I loved it. I met him later that month and nervously asked him how he was doing. All he said was "astronomical" with a wry smile. That's all I needed."
In addition, NIM VIND sought out power mixer Jay Ruston (Stone Sour, Anthrax, Meatloaf, Steel Panther) for Saturday Night Séance Songs, who has taken the NIM VIND signature sound to heightened frenzy. More underground additions to the critical team are Canadian music veteran engineer Doug Fury (Bif Naked) and up-and-coming Anaheim, CA mixer David Irish (sound tech for punk band "X").
NIM VIND's cult following is steadily anticipating the new release. If you haven't heard of NIM VIND by now, you'll quickly learn that his underground following has been increasing for years. Vind boasts two prior tomes released on independent German labels and a good deal of international touring, as well as stints as the front man of family project and ghoul-core greats Mr. Underhill, which segued into a position as the dreamy bassist with Vans Warped Tour sweethearts The Vincent Black Shadow.
Fast forward to present day, when NIM VIND and his band of horror punks turn nightly shows into Sci-Fi sock hops. Throwback guitar riffs coupled with in-the-pocket pounding drum beats highlight sickening bass grooves, skillfully driven by Nim's smooth baritone vocals soaked in mentally ill-laden poetry.
NIM VIND is continually assembling the masses of underground believers, recently teaming up with heavy metal forefather Jonny Zazula to create his new label, House of Vind, with Saturday Night Séance Songs leading the charge as their first release. More information on future releases will be released soon.
Be sure to pick up ANONYMOUS, the novel that Publishers Weekly hailed as a "well-crafted piece of experimental, voyeuristic fiction..." and "a winning jumble of the gritty, the raw, and the grotesque" at http://www.tanamor.com/p/anonymous.html.
