In 2010 we announced, that we were going to disband. There's no chance that we will ever perform again on stage as Last Grain In The Hourglass, but from today on we want to share our work with the world and to enable other artists to use our work without any legal problems for their own work. How's that possible? With Januay 1st, 2013 our contract with the german GEMA (a royalty-fee-collector) ran out and by this date we decided to release all our recordings under the Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial-ShareAlike 3.0. unported license.
And we would be happy if you could drop us a message in case you released you work for example on Youtube, and simply drop us a link. We're very curious about what YOU do with your music! In case you want to use it for a commercial project – then simply write us, too.
Thanks a lot and we hope you enjoy our music!
Last Grain In The Hourglass
Christoph, Florian, Max, Stefan.
As the first rays of the sun hit the face of the earth in 2006, four people in the southeast of Germany decided to get their asses of the couch and make music. Only a few weeks after that, the four-piece - called LAST GRAIN IN THE HOURGLASS - recorded their first selftitled demo, which was very well received by the press. With the first gigs, the band strengthened the vision and manifested their very own style. The consequence was the 2007 effort "Following the River, Finding the Sea", their first official EP recorded at Farmland Studios in Freising, Germany, featuring 4 epic tracks and received raging reviews from all over Europe. In Spring of 2008 the band was contacted by a group of equally creative students, who shot the first official videoclip: With an interpretation by the directors, the clip for "1.500 Miles North" was realized. Later that year, LAST GRAIN IN THE HOURGLASS started to begin the songwriting for their first full length-album. Some of those tracks were recorded and mixed in the bands rehearsal room in winter 2008/2009 and mastered by their friend Ludwig Maier. In spring of 2009 it was finally released: "Now I Am Become Death, The Destroyer Of Worlds", reciting the famous quote by J. Robert Oppenheimer, lyrically dealing with our species' tendencies of self-destruction. Sadly, the band decided to disband in early 2010.
