Help fund our new concept album, inspired heavily by Sci-Fi and cosmology. Together, we can make "Frontiers" a great release!
Thanks for checking out our project! Unsacred Seed is a Heavy Metal band from London, Ontario, Canada. We are currently in the process of writing & recording our second full length album, "Frontiers." It is our first concept album and definitely our best work to date. However, we lack the funds to release it properly. And that is...
Why we need you
We released our self titled debut album in April 2013 for free on Bandcamp to anyone with internet access, and the reception has been overwhelmingly positive. But a constant request from friends & fans was that they wanted merch. Specifically physical media and apparel. At the time, it wasn't very feasible to produce CD's and t-shirts. And with this new album coming out, we wanted to do right this time.
Once we heard that Kickstarter was coming to Canada, we knew that it would be the perfect way to release our new album. Instead of just making the songs available digitally, we are looking to produce some merch and physical copies for people to keep in their collections. To do this, we are looking towards our friends, fans, and metal enthusiasts around the world.
Through crowdsourcing, we can release a high-quality product that sounds great and looks professional. That, inevitably, is where most of the cost comes from. We need to cover the bills for the Album Artwork, Merch, Mixing & Mastering, and Disk Manufacturing. Which is why we are asking the amount we are. The majority of the pledges are going to the printing the new & debut CD, as well as 1 or 2 different variations of t-shirts [Black/White]. So with your help, we can make this a great release.
About the album
"Frontiers" is a concept album inspired heavily by futurism, space travel, cosmology, and the science fiction genre. It is about the discovery of new worlds, species, and dimensions, all through the eyes of a Type 3 civilization.
This time around, the band has put in a lot of time and energy into creating a fresh sound. Combining influences such as Gojira, Dethklok, Meshuggah, Opeth, Chuck Schuldiner, and The Black Dahlia Murder. Just to name a few.
The album will be 8-10 songs long with one instrumental, 6 of which have already been written and recorded [minus vocals]. Clocking in at around 45 - 50mins or so. We are recording at a home studio setup up and upon finishing tracking, we will take the songs to a mixing studio. The band is confident that the album will be completely finished and released by February 2014.
So for this album, the band has gone though a few changes. Our first album had our lead guitarist take on the vocals for the majority of the songs. But for this album, we have a new dedicated vocalist & frontman. With Dee's huge range and stage presence, you should expect something intense.
We also have a new drummer John, and a new bassist, Slice. The new additions to the rhythm section has beefed up our sound considerably. Because of these changes, you can expect something way heavier and with alot more melody than last album.

If we exceed our goal
The great thing about a website like Kickstarter, is that there is no limit to how much we can raise. So if, by some chance, we go over our goal by any amount, Some stretch goals we have in mind are New Rewards, different/more types of Merch, Promotion for the album, and even a Music Video.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The biggest challenge is making sure we make the record sounds the best it can. Meaning, high quality performances and professional mixing & mastering. Last album was done over a 3 year span and wasn't sonically consistent. This LP is much more focused and definitely tighter rhythmically than last effort.
We are working with producer and good friend of the band Dmitri Belichenko, known as "DJ KloneZ" in some circles. He helped us out on our last album with the instrumental track "Anti-KlonZon," and is going to help us mix "Frontiers." With his aggressive mixing style and impressive catalog of music, you should expect great results.
The other challenge we face is getting the CDs & T-shirts printed. But if we reach our goal, there are several companies in the Toronto-area that will produce either for a fair price.
