THE NEW PRO PATRIA ALBUM IS COMING

The fifth Pro Patria album, also the fourth in four years’ time, will be entitled “Piercing Through the Armour” and is well on track for release in early spring 2022 through our unstoppable label Insane Records.
 
Even though the hard beats certainly won’t be missing, this album will be a bit more experimental, more through the barrier, more me. Yet I sincerely hope that you, my beloved audience, will appreciate it.
 
Countdown has started… stay tuned!

"Hard Times" blows out thirty candles!

29/09/2021

Exactly thirty years ago on this date, Pro Patria recorded the first demo of “Hard Times”, the track that would become their most popular song to date. “Hard Times” became the signature track of the band’s first official demo (Spasmaticae) in 1993 and an updated version was also published on the second demo (Militaria) in 1994. Eventually Pro Patria recorded the final version in 1996 for their debut album “Quod Erat Demonstrandum”.

It is less known that there exists a unique version from 1998 with… a female co-singer!

"Death of a Friend" gets a special acoustic version!

16/07/2021

The fugue is the most complex musical structure ever invented and it has always been my ambition to try to make one. The theme from “Death of a Friend” was simply begging me to use it for this purpose and on “Executioner” you’ll also find an earlier attempt to construct the introduction of a fugue as a hidden bonus with the same theme. So, after months of building themes, answers and counterpoints (and a lot of sweat and sleepless nights), here‘s my – very humble – attempt with a wink to the great master. Four voices, double counterpoint.

A new Pro Patria single...

06/05/2021

“Story of a Boy” is a brand new Pro Patria track. It’s a bit different from the rest because it was made to ask some attention for the many male victims of domestic violence, men who often have nowhere to turn to because no-one will take them seriously.

It will be included as a bonus on our next album, but in the meantime we hope that you enjoy the video.

There will be a new Pro Patria album in 2022!

Back to Basics has been remastered!

18/03/2021

I know that my 2017 return album, was received with mixed feelings, mostly because it was mastered terribly which made the sound much harsher than I intended. I preferred to learn the dark arts of mixing and mastering myself rather than always depend on others, but I had seriously underestimated how hard it actually is to get the sound right. I’ve tried to rectify that and the work is now finished. Hopefully you’ll give this album a second chance.
