I have just uploaded to YouTube a promo for the seventh Lightless album. The new album will be titled "Phantom Circles" and will be released in late 2014/early 2015 (with emphasis on the latter date).
To listen to the promo, click here to go to YouTube.
I am currently working on a second instrumental album; essentially it is a follow up to 2013's "Funeral Music". All tracks are written and some have been recorded. There is still work to do and it will be done before the year is out.
"Depraved Dimensions" CDR is sold out! Those still after a copy of this recording: I have just three copies on cassette remaining, keeping in mind it's only available from me.
Hammerstorm recently released a black metal compilation tribute to Skrewdriver. This featured the Lightless cover of "Voice of Britain". More information can be found here.
As of today, Lightless is on Sound Cloud. There are currently four tracks available for streaming.

For the last few weeks I have been circulating a promotional release simply titled "Promo 2014". It features fifty-four minutes of music, showcasing all six full-length albums and also includes two tracks from the recent "The Dead Return" EP.
The End of Coexistence is now completely sold out from me. However, tape copies are still available from Schattenkult Produktion and Tour de Garde.
I am pleased to announce that I have a few copies of the Schattenkult Produktionen tape "Poetry From a Pessimist" cassette back in stock. Pro-printed covers and stickers, hand numbered to 100 copies.
I am down to the last ten copies of Depraved Dimensions and both formats are still available. Get a copy now before they're all gone.
The Audio page is gone but has been replaced by links to YouTube on the Releases (formerly Discography) page. The Links page has been updated and revised, now just click the name and you will be taken to that place. Much more user-friendly.
Precisely as the heading says, "The Dead Return" and "Old Spirits" EPs are both completely sold out.
"Depraved Dimensions" is out now! Available on cassette and CDR, limited to 40 copies. It is 14 tracks of pounding metal.
"The Dead Return" and "Old Spirits" EP are out now! Available on cassette only! Limited to 10 copies each!
All three titles are available exclusively from me.
The CDR version of Funeral Music has just sold out and the tape version has been sold out from me for a while. Those seeking a copy should contact Schattenkult Produktionen, Tour de Garde or Black Blood Records.
At last I have finished the album I have been working on since late 2012. It will be released soon on the usual CDR and cassette formats.
I have also been working on two EPs: one consists of six rerecorded, old Lightless songs and the other of eight covers. These will be tape only and in a very small run of just ten units each.
All three to be released on the same date. Preview tracks will be uploaded and more details will be disclosed closer to the release date.
Poetry From a Pessimist is sold out from me on cassette and CDR. For those of you in Europe or on the north American continent, tape copies can be sourced from Schattenkult Produktion in Germany and Tour de Garde in Canada.
Only a few copies of Funeral Music CDR and The End of Coexietence cassette available now.
The cassette version of Funeral Music has sold out from me, and I have only a very limited quantity left on CDR. For those of you in Europe or on the north American continent, tape copies can be sourced from Schattenkult Produktion in Germany and Tour de Garde in Canada.
Also, I have just two tape copies of Poetry From a Pessimist left. This title on this format can also be sourced from the above mentioned labels.
Tour de Garde and Schattenkult Produktion now have tape copies of all five Lightless albums. I suggest those on the top half of the planet source their copy from one of these two distros.
Also, Funeral Music is selling well. Not too many copies left; if you want to get a copy, now would be the best time to do so.
Recently, I sent tape copies of albums to Tour de Garde in Canada, and Schattenkult Produktion in Germany. All five albums will be available from these two distros before the year is out. I encourage those in Europe and Canada/the Americas to source their copy from one of these two labels.
Also, I am down to my last 4 tape copies of "Poetry From a Pessimist", and last 9 of "The End of Coexistence". Just a reminder; the CDRs of these albums are sold out!
I would prefer if people got their copies now, rather than complaining when they are sold out.
EDIT: 26-11-2013: Another thing, I have just 5 tape copies of Funeral Music remaining.
To clarify: the first four albums are sold out on CDR; I only have the cassette versions available! These first four titles are:
The End of Coexistence
Into the Haunted Heart of the Blacklands
Poetry From a Pessimist
All above titles are now cassette only!
The Demos compilation is sold out on cassette and CDR! You'll need to get a friend to bootleg it.
Funeral Music is still available on both formats, for now, and it is selling well. Half of the copies are already sold.
"Funeral Music" is out now! Limited to 50 hand-numbered copies; 25 CDRs, 25 tapes. The album consists of four long tracks; two metal, two ambient. Get in contact for your copy. Head on over to YouTube for an unmixed sample.
Also, the demos have been rereleased. This is the last time they will be offered. The 4 tape copies have sold out already, and I have just one copy of the CDR version remaining.
And finally, the last CDR copies of the first four albums sold earlier tonight, and thus, these editions are now sold out/out of print. The Discography page has been updated to reflect this.
Another new album is just about ready for release - finish the cover and it's done. It is an all instrumental album, consisting of four long tracks; two ambient, two metal. Details to follow.
The 2006-2007 demos are being rereleased in very limited numbers on cassette and CDR formats. The first press and rereleases from 2008 have well and truly sold out. Details to follow.

Lightless has recently been approached by 272 Records, a California, USA based record label, with the desire of including Lightless on their metal compilation CD "Kill City vol. 34". The track being included is "Removing Myself From Society", which appeared on the album "Humanity Erased".
The CD is currently being manufactured and is due for release on October 7th. I will have a limited number if copies available, after that, it can be ordered from me via the coming PayPal link. These copies will be posted from 272 Records in LA, California.
Just like the headline reads, I'm slowly putting a new album together. The music is written and all recorded except for the guitars on one track. Will move onto writing lyrics and recording voice at a later stage. I aim to have it completed before the end of the year.
Also, I'm starting up somewhat of a mailing list for those interested. Email me, simply stating you want to join, and when there is news or a release, you will be one of the first to know about it.
The "Audio" page now has samples and some full songs on it. See the page for sounds from the currently available releases.
The next album is even closer to completion, with a few more tracks being completed in the last month. One is being written at the moment and will be recorded soon. I predict a January/February release.
The Lightless website is up and running.
The next album is nearing completion, with a few new tracks currently being written. More news later.
