02-01-2017 – Layered Reality Productions releases now also available on youtube!

The start of 2017 brings us something new as we will post full releases from our artists onto our youtube channel for free streaming purposes!

These will include older releases by Layered Reality bands as well as new ones that will be released specifically for this cause. These releases will then also be made available on all major online music retailers and streaming services. In this day and age of people using channels like youtube for their musical needs, we want to give everyone direct access to our releases this way!

The first release we offer in this new shape is TDW’s “Music To Stand Around And Feel Awkward To” album from 2014!

This is the 8 song version that was launched for TDW fans earlier and it is now available for the world.

01-01-2017 – A happy 2017 and the best new years wishes for everyone!

After 2016 being a bumpy ride for multiple Layered Reality Productions bands, we are now entering 2017 and it’s proving to shape up to be a great year!

2017 will feature the upcoming releases of Hillsphere‘s debut-record “Florescence”, the new TDW album “The Antithetic Affiliation” and the tour that will be accompanying both releases!

Also the re-release of Unforeseen Motions‘ Breaking the Glass Armor is drawing ever closer and will happen in the first quarter of 2017. More info about that will be unveiled once it is available, but here is a small sneak peak of the coverart for the release.

Finally, we want to thank you, the listener, the reviewer, the musician, the supporter, whoever you are, for supporting the Layered Reality cause! Thank you!

We are excited to share all this new musical output with you. Onward to a productive 2017!

In the meantime, the pre-order for the new TDW album, “The Antithetic Affiliation” is still going strong and you can get your pre-order package (including an optional T-shirt and new EP) by clicking the cover of the EP below:

15-11-2016 – Resolve parts ways with drummer

Gregory van der Hoeven leaves ReSolveSad news reached the Layered Reality mailbox today, as ReSolve parts ways with their drummer Gregory van der Hoeven. (Picture by Fred Helders.) The full statement as posted by the band can be read below:

“…Dear all, It is with heavy hearts that we announce that our drummer Gregory van der Hoeven and ReSolve have parted ways.

Greg was one of the founding members of ReSolve back in 2010 and has been a vital part of the band since then. We have been through a lot together as a band, both good and bad times, which we will never take for granted. We have written, recorded and released our first album, but also signed our first record deal together and shared the stage numerous times.

However, due to changing lives, goals and ambitions, we have mutually decided to part ways as the buddies we have always been and will continue to be. Greg, we cannot thank you enough for all you’ve done for us over the past six years and wish you all the best in your current and future endeavors!

We want to emphasize that this split does NOT mean the end of ReSolve! We are currently in the very beginning stages of the writing process for our second album, which will continue throughout 2017. Stay tuned for updates!”

ReSolve’s second album will be released through Layered Reality Productions once it is done. More updates will be given once they are available.

10-10-2016 – ReSolve’s debut-album has turned one year old! And we are celebrating!

resolve_oneyearpromo_webversionCelebrations are in order today! ReSolve celebrates their first year anniversary of their debut-album “Wayward Sanctuary”! And to celebrate this from our side, you can now get the album for the wonderfully special price of €8,50! (Excl. shipping)

Wayward Sanctuary was reviewed favourably by multiple reviewers, garnering comments such as:

“Wayward Sanctuary is een keurig geproduceerd en beheerst debuutalbum, waarop ReSolve een vaardige indruk achterlaat. Er is veel werk aan de gevarieerde composities besteed. De dynamiek in These Voices en N.P.O.A.L. pakt minder geslaagd uit, maar voor de rest zijn er veel overtuigende songs. Voor een eerste release is dit dan ook een verzorgd visitekaartje die het beluisteren meer dan waard is.” (Jeffrey – – 75 out of 100)

“After forty-five minutes the depression I was almost left begging for more, as Wayward Sanctury perfectly matches my current state of mind at these cold and dark Scandinavian winter days. Thus, ReSolve might not be the most original act on the scene, but they surely play a solid melodic, epic and depressive progressive metal with decent song-writing and great handling of the instruments.” (Metal Revolution – 78 out of 100)

“ReSolve has come up with a wonderful progressive metal album that holds many surprises, from harsh vocal parts to very pleasant ones. Musically very strong, nevertheless the keyboards are reminding me of Dream Theater a lot and I would like ReSolve to step into the future with its own distinguished style.”
(Background Magazine – 4 out of 5 stars)

This lasts only in October, so be sure to get your copy ASAP!
