04/26/2018: Yes, it's been quite a while, but TAXIM is still alive. However, I've decided to go back to hobby music producing, so from now on new albums will be released less regularly--and quietly. You know, this is the 2010s, and promoting independent music doesn't pay off anymore. I'll most likely just upload new music for free to Bandcamp, Soundcloud etc and that's about it. Oh: I've also got rid of TAXIM's Facebook page, so if you'd like to hear about new TAXIM releases, pay this page a visit every now and then.
As for the next album, I currently neither know how it's going to be called nor when it's going to be released. The idea behind "Dreiklang" is too aged by now, however, the song "Dancing in my Padded Cell" may appear on my next release as a bonustrack.
04/27/2018: On the 24th of December 17 we (Knights of Bytes) released our C64 platformer "Sam's Journey". 19 TAXIM tunes in there. Also, the release trailer features a new synth remix by me ("Sam's Journey - The Green Hills"). Click here to download the whole thing as hq MP3. The game is available from Protovision.
While our future journeys will definitely lead us to both NES and SNES, "Sam's Journey" wasn't necessarily our last C64 game. Stay tuned for further news.
The video for "Dancing in my Padded Cell". This song is not related to "Alice: Madness Returns" at all, but I thought the game's in-game footage fits the music quite nicely.
Originally, "Dancing in my Padded Cell" was supposed to appear on "Dreiklang", an album I quit working on. The final version of the song may be released someday, though (see general news).
The last songs I released can be found on "We Will Haunt You" (2016).
