Feradur Burglary Fix

Hello friends and fans.

For those who don't know us: we are Feradur, a melodic death metal  band based in Cologne/Germany.

We started this fundraiser because our band car was forced open and a considerable amount of gear was stolen. After making the calculations, we came to the conclusion that all this stuff didn't only have much emotional value but it also blasted a hole in our purses, which are by default pretty empty... The production costs for our upcoming album also wont cover themselves so we got all those things going against us, which sucks!

33009722_1537102771341341_r.jpeg"Glass shards are fun!"

Everything that was stolen was the product of years-long experimenting, saving up, buying and selling in order to have the best possible sound live and in the studio. Now three of us have to restock gear from almost zero. Two guitars with complete rigs are gone, as well as all our drummers cymbals, snare and double-bass pedal.

33009722_1537104494447566_r.jpegMario's Ibanez (RGD320), "Meister Proper", will be dearly missed.

33009722_1537104512599399_r.jpegMich's Jackson (Soloist SLXT), "The Green Guitar", will be dearly missed.

33009722_1537104542852247_r.jpegD-Mich's cymbals, snare, pedal and more... will be dearly missed.

This said, this fund will be used to replace the stolen gear as much as possible. We even might find better and/or cheaper options in order to optimise our future equipment for more metal goodness. All that is left will flow into our album production.

Maybe we come up with something cool to thank you guys and girls. For starters, every backer will be mentioned and thanked in the credits of our upcoming album. For the time being, we can't think of anything better yet... we are frustrated and shocked. We learned a valuable lesson the hard way and we'll take better care in the future. Dear fellow musicians, don't leave your stuff in your car, even if it is parked before your friggin' house!

Thank you for reading, for sharing, for caring!

Love and kisses

Feradur

PS: a list of the stolen gear will be at the end of the post.

Hallo Freunde und Fans!

Für alle die, die uns nicht kennen: wir sind Feradur, eine in Köln ansäßige melodic death metal Gruppe.

Wir haben diesen Fundraiser gestartet weil unser Auto aufgebrochen wurde und ein Großteil unseres Equipments abhanden gekommen ist. Nachdem wir nachgerechnet hatten, haben wir gemerkt dass der ganze Kram nicht nur emotionalen Wert hatte, sondern diese ganze Aktion ein fettes Loch in unseren Geldbeutel - der ohnehin schon eher leer ist - gesprengt hat. Die Kosten von unserem nächsten Album werden sich auch nicht von selbst decken, das heisst all das läuft gerade bei uns. Nicht.

Alles was gestohlen wurde war das Produkt jahrelangen Sparens, Testens, Kaufens und Verkaufens, auf der Suche nach dem optimalen Sound für live und beim Aufnehmen. Jetzt müssen drei Leute von uns quasi wieder bei 0 anfangen. Zwei Gitarristen sind ohne Gitarre und Rig, dem Drummer fehlen sämtliche Bleche, die Snare und die Fußmaschine.

Vor diesem Hintergrund wird dieser Spendenfond benutzt werden um unser gestohlenes Equipment so gut wie möglich zu ersetzen. Vielleicht finden wir sogar günstigere und/oder bessere Varianten um in Zukunft noch härteren Metal liefern zu können. Alles was darüber hinausgeht wird in die Albumproduktion fließen.

Vielleicht finden wir noch etwas cooles um allen Spendern zu danken. An erster Stelle werden wir jedem in unserem nächsten Album danken. In diesem Moment haben wir leider keine bessere Idee... wir sind frustriert und schockiert. Wir haben auf hartem Weg eine wertvolle Lektion gelernt und wir werden in Zukunft besser aufpassen. Liebe Mitmusiker: lasst euren Kram nicht im Auto, sogar wenn's vor eurer vergeigten Haustür steht!

Danke für's Lesen, Teilen und eure Sympathie.

Liebe und Küsse

Feradur

PS: alles gestohlene in einer Liste weiter unten.

Bonjours les amis et supporteurs!

Pour ceux qui ne nous connaissent pas: nous sommes Feradur, groupe de melodic death metal de Cologne.

Nous avons commencé cette collecte de fonds parce que notre voiture a été victime d'un cambriolage et la majorité de notre équipement musical a été volé. Après avoir fait les calculs, nous avons réalisé que ce matériel n'avait non seulement de la valeur émotionnelle, mais que cet événement a déchiré un grand trou dans notre bourse qui, par défaut, est déjà plutôt vide... Tout cela en un coup, ce qui n'est pas trop génial.

Tout ce qu'on nous a volé est le produit de longues années d'expériences, d'achats et de ventes à la recherche du son optimal, que ce soit en live ou dans le studio. Maintenant trois de nos musiciens doivent recommencer à presque zéro. Deux guitares et accessoires si bien que les cymbales, la caisse claire et la pédale du batteur manquent désormais.

Ceci dit, nous allons utiliser l'argent de cette collecte pour remplacer le matériel manquant aussi bien que possible. Peut-être nous trouverons des alternatives moins chères et/ou plus efficaces afin de mieux délivrer à la frontière musicale! L'argent qui reste sera versé dans la production du prochain album.

Peut-être on trouvera quelque chose pour remercier tous le donateurs. D'abord tout le monde aura une dédicace dans le prochain album. Pour le moment nous manquons d'idées... nous sommes frustrés et choqués. Nous avons appris une leçon valable de manière dure et nous nous méfierons encore plus dans le futur. Chers co-musiciens: ne laissez pas vos instruments dans la voiture, même si elle es garée devant votre porte!

Merci pour lire, partager et votre sympathie!

Amour et bisous

Feradur

Dearest friends and fans: we are unable to express the full extent of our gratitude towards all the donations we received the past few weeks. Most donations contained kind messages, that we should keep going and stay strong. This is heartwarming, or rather heartmelting! :') Thank you so much everyone for helping us get back on our (musical) feet!
Here is a picture of Mario and Mich being totally happy with their new battle axes!

Again: thanks so much to everyone for helping us out! Hugs, kisses, love and death metal to y'all! <3
