COMPULSIVE COMPOSING DISORDER
The story of the Swedish hardrock Project CCD and the Creation of the album MINDFUCKNESS
CCD - Compulsive Composing Disorder - is a Swedish hardrockproject founded by Robin Vagh. Right now the Project is developing into something really exciting!
It started back in 2015 when Robin discovered he was suffering from some kind of disorder. He was Always (!) thinking in terms of new songs. Prior to this Project he founded VAGH and OPTIMYSTICAL that released three albums within them:
2002 - Sands of Time (VAGH)
2004 - Into the Future Zone (VAGH)
2009 - Distant Encounters (Optimystical)
Late 2016 he decided to step up the pace developing the material. He started the inventory of all songs written since his last release. And of some old one as well.
He also started the search for great musicians, as well as good human beings, for the recordings...
And the journey Went on...
In january Robin found leadsinger Niklas Hult who was added to the Project both as singer and lyricist. He´s got a great ability to fullfill Robin´s ideas of lyrics for the songs. A great cooperation started that will take the Project to a new level.
In february leadguitarists Jay Matharu and Rickard Cederqvist joined the project for some guitarwork. Another bit of the jigsaw puzzle was in place.
Also Jan-Åke Jönsson agreed to record some basslines for the songs. Much appreciated!
And, not the least, illustrator Robert Toth created a logo
