SHAPED IN DREAMS is a musical project with guest

SHAPED IN DREAMS is a musical project of composer/multiinstrumentalist Martin Matiasovic featuring international, renowned guest artists from Black Crown Initiate, Obscura, Obscurity, Alkaloid and more. The main motivation behind the project was establishing a creative outlet for the artist's restless urge to compose and thereby also present his eclectic, multigenre vision of music mainly drawing inspiration from heavy, guitar oriented and classical music. The result is a kind of music that represents the message that genres and styles are but a superficial, non-essential quality of music, that its real substance lies beyond them and that they ultimately don't matter. This is expressed by a multitude of genres represented on the album while at the same time conveying the same ideas throughout its entirety.

Born February 1993 in Slovakia, Martin showed an early interest in music starting with recorder at the age of 6, later switching to french horn. During his mid teenage years he developed an interest in alternative rock music listening to Nirvana and Alice In Chains which also led him to pick up the guitar. Shortly after that he started favoring heavier, more guitar oriented bands like Megadeth and Judas Priest, later scandinavian melodeath pioneers In Flames and Dark Tranquillity as well as instrumental guitar music from Shrapnel Records artists. From day one he was experimenting with writing own music rather than learning songs of other artists. This naturally progressed to a heavy interest in composition and music theory which, soon after, he was being taught formally at the conservatory in Bratislava where he also continued with his french horn studies. During these years he formed a melodic death metal band with friends. This helped him to further develop his songwriting skills in the metal genre and gain experiences with playing in a band situation, later he stepped in as a touring guitarist for a local symphonic black metal band. After graduating at the conservatory he went on to study french horn performance at Hochschule für Musik Carl Maria von Weber Dresden, Germany, where he attained his bachelor's degree in 2019 and got further accepted for master studies. During his second year in Dresden he won a scholarship which he used as a financial basis to start producing SHAPED IN DREAMS' first realease 'Echoes of Eldren Deeds'.

Line Up:

Martin Matiasovic - producer, rhythm, lead and acoustic guitar, french horn, field recordings, composing, arranging, editing
James Dorton - vocals, arranging (Black Crown Initiate, Replacire)
Linus Klausenitzer - fretless bass, editing, arranging (Obscura, Alkaloid, Noneuclid)
Marc Dzierzon - drums, arranging (Obscurity, Centaurus-A, ex-Almanac, ex-Dew Scented)
Matthias Preisinger - acoustic piano, string instruments (german composer, multiistrumentalist, session musician)
Mikołaj Suchanek - electric piano, improvisations (jazz pianist)
Harmonia Nova - wind instruments (woodwind quintet)
Christina Rotondo - clean vocals (session vocalist)

Tom Fountainhead Geldschläger - mixing, mastering, arranging, editing, co-producing (ex-Obscura, Amogh Symphony, Pitts-Minnemann Project)

Echoes of Eldren Deeds was recorded between February 2018 and June 2019 at the respective studios of the guest artists - Germany, Slovakia, USA, Great Britain and is scheduled to be released in November 2019 via Vmbrella.

Devilskin brilliant new single released 9th Nov & video


Devilskin’s new song ‘ENDO’, is a powerfully crafted and visceral masterpiece. Not only does it showcase vocalist Jennie Skulander’s incredible power, range and emotional depth but the lyrics are an honest and brutal narrative of her personal struggle with stage 4 endometriosis.


A poignant glimpse into the pain and distress that millions of women live with on a daily basis all over the world, the song ENDO is Jennie's cathartic exorcism of her own personal demons. “Endo is based on my surgery for Stage 4 Endometriosis, something I was unaware I had. The lyric "Break the mass up" is about having an 11 cm cyst (Endometrioma) on my ovary removed. This disease affects so many women worldwide, I really think it’s time we talked openly about it.”
Watch the Endo video below:

The band explore dynamic new territory with this moody, rollercoaster of a song. Recorded at Roundhead Studios with producer Greg Haver (Bullet For My Valentine, Manic Street Preachers), engineered by Simon Gooding (Alien Weaponry, Neil Finn) and mixed in Los Angeles by Ben Grosse (Marilyn Manson, Disturbed, Stone Temple Pilots), the song was mastered in New York by Ryan Smith.

Devilskin display confidence and a mastery of their art with a delivery that’s both beautiful and bombastic. The gorgeous close vocal intro gives way to a crushing, all-powerful riff and the song twists, turns and totally engulfs the listener, just like the condition itself. “We've been writing a lot and really digging deep into the songs and the emotions involved. We have definitely evolved again as songwriters. We love to write our own rules, push boundaries and kick down barriers. You need to in order to grow” says band spokesman Paul Martin.

“Deborah Bush CEO of ENZ, said that more than 120,000 girls and women have endometriosis in NZ and it can take 8+ years to get a diagnosis. The most important thing is to recognise the symptoms early and follow a recommended treatment plan to avoid symptoms interfering with schooling, career, relationships, quality of life or fertility downstream.”

Director Shae Sterling has filmed a stunning and visually arresting video, which was creatively written with the band. “The subject matter demands attention, and we are confident this video does it real justice” says Paul Martin “It's not for the faint hearted.”

Devilskin will join HALESTORM for an 18 date tour starting in the Netherlands 1st October and take in 11 countries, finishing in Madrid, Spain 25th October before heading to the UK for a further ten shows.

“The UK has been really supportive of Devilskin, we have a voracious fanbase there and we are totally amped to be heading back to play for them again!” comments bassist Paul Martin “We made a lot of friends last time we were there at Download festival so we've been hanging out to get back.”

Devilskin UK Tour :
31st October Boston Music Rooms London
1st November Hobo’s Bridgend
2nd November Think Tank Newcastle
3rd November Cathouse Glasgow
4th November The Live Rooms Chester
5th November 02 Academy 3 Birmigham
6th November Rebellion Manchester
7th November Craufurd Arms Milton Keynes
8th November Corporation Sheffield
11th November Old Fire Station Bournemouth

“We’ve been itching to get back to the UK, we had such an amazing tour with Sumo Cyco during Feb 2017 and can’t wait to hit the road and re-connect with our UK fans" comments vocalist Jennie Skulander

Supporting Devilskin on the UK leg will be The Fallen State.

“The Fallen State have been putting in the hard yards and selling out venues,” says Martin, “they're getting a great reputation as an exciting act. We seem to share the same work ethic and they're also friends with our mates in Halestorm so we're really looking forward to having some fun and putting on some killer shows with these guys.”
