Disorders is more than a music album: it's a multidisciplinary and collaborative project inspired by mental health.
The first component of Disorders is a progressive metal/ambient album, with influences such as Tool, Tesseract, Metallica or Pain of Salvation. The songs move around a wide range of moods, allowing to express the big diversity of emotions needed to talk about mental health.
The album features, in addition, guest musicians from other bands such as Quaoar, Stoned at Pompeii or Sweet Death.
Each song talks about a different mental disorder.
This is, still today, a taboo subject: patients with any kind of mental disease suffer from a huge stigma.
This project has the humble aim of fighting that stigma. From the biggest respect, empathy and love.
The songs talk about depression, anorexia, autism... We all have a case close to us, and yet nobody talks about it.
The lyrics for each song are written by people who have firsthand contact with mental health, people who have volunteered to help with the project. People from all over the world, who know what it feels like to live with a mental disorder, in the first-person, or in a relative, and that have portrayed that experience in lyrics that make this album unique. Gathering the lyrics has been amazing.
- Empty (anorexia)
- Mindful (bipolar disorder)
- Holocaust (schizophrenia)
- Over-Controlling Demon (OCD)
- Everlasting Omnent Souls (depression)
- The veil (Autism-Spectrum Disorder)
- Rewind (Borderline Personality Disorder)
- Migas de pan (Autism-Spectrum Disorder)
In addition, based on the lyrics, the album booklet showcases illustrations created by other patients and, depending on the chosen perk, you could get other art pieces (sculptures, paintings, etc), all of them created by people with different mental disorders.

Where will the money go?
All the profits will go to FEAFES Galicia: Patients and Relatives Federation in Galicia (part of Spanish Mental Health Confederation).
This is a 100% solidary project and we want the recipients to get as much money as possible. That is why the recording, mixing and album mastering is payed by us. In addition, the revenue generated by the song's rights (music part, 50%) will also be donated to FEAFES (after taxes). Documents proving the donation to FEAFES, from Verkami and SGAE, will be provided.
The money we collect will be used to produce the physical album (CD) and the merchandising that you can get with the perks: t-shirts, sculptures, notebooks, posters...
Verkami gets a share of what we collect (6'35%). Once we substract that share, and taxes, all the rest of the money will be donated to FEAFES.
About the perks
The reason why we created this campaign is all the material created by the collaborators: lyrics, illustrations, sculptures...
You can get different objects generated based on the illustrations of FEAFES members, including the original artworks themselves. There are not plenty of times when you can take home the original artwork for an album cover :)
If you want to buy an original illustration, since there is only one, you must first contact us to our email telling us which one you want to get from this list, in order to confirm it is still available.
Shipping to Spain is included in the prices.. For international shipping, please add the special International Shipping perk that best applies to your case.

Who are we
I am Carlos Morales Pereira. I've been into music since I was a teenager, in different rock/metal bands. Fear Of Missing Out is a personal project in which I've been working for a lot of time. I've composed the songs, contacted the lyricists, recorded guitars, vocals, keyboards...
I've had the help of Héctor Agulla (Loiros) on the drums.
On the bass guitar, Antón F. "Piru" (Stoned at Pompeii, Mooncresta).
Aditionally, Aitor "Malamute" Zorriketa (Quaoar, James Room & Weird Antiqua), Xela Rivera (Sweet Death) and Víctor Castro have participated.
The lyrics have been written by people from India, United Kingdom, USA, Spain and Namibia. I've contacted them through Facebook mental health support groups.
The illustrations have been made by members of different associations belonging to FEAFES.
FEAFES mission is to improve the quality of life of those living with a mental disease and their families, to defend their rights and to bring support and coordination to the associations that belong to the Federation.
The album has been recorded and is being edited at A Casa do Rock (Santiago de Compostela) studios, and will be mixed and mastered at Pouland Studios (Ames).
The album will be out in mid 2019. Digital downloads will be available before the release.
The remaining perks (t-shirts, posters, etc) will be shipped together with the CDs.
