AlionLive Madeira Part 11B is here! Hardcore Hiking in the mountains of Madeira!

Yeah, now it all goes quite quickly, because I really want to finnish AlionLive Madeira finally. And because of that I invested A BIT more time this weekend to get another part online. Yesterday it was just a, a bit strange, busride, but today it gets really venturesome and alionsonny and his girlfriend even get into life hazard! This part starts, where part 11A ended. After the busdriver kicked us off the bus a bit further inside the Madeiran heartland than Curral das Freiras, we went on a neckbreaking hike towards Pico Ruivo, the highest peak on Madeira island, which took us to an altitude of about 1700 metres. I will not tell more to not spoil it all.

The soundtrack is from my project Cimelium which will release its first album Mesopotamia soon!

And now have fun with the heaviest and most crazy stuff on AlionLive so far!

AlionLive Madeira continues - Busride to the wild heart of Madeira!

Yeah, again it took a while and some folks were getting on my nerves allready. When does the last one get the fact, that pressure makes me doing the complete opposite of what those folks intend to achieve? ;)

But in fact there were reasons why it all took so long. The first reason is, that because of the rather lousy summer, my annual fall-/winterdepression kicked in a bit earlier this year and gave me a nice creative block. Additionally I wanted to create at least one brandnew song for that video once again, which was not so easy to, because of reason 1. But, and now hold your breath, there's not just one brandnew song in this video, but FOUR! This is because I worked with full force at the first album of the Willma Poppen project. And exactly this is the reason why the complete soundtrack for this video is from the just released album "Heroes of the Popp-Culture" by Willma Poppen.

The video is again a part with 2 sub-parts... complicated? You allready know that. There is a part 11A and there will be a part 11B. I do this, because this part 11A is about a busride to the wild heart of Madeira to get us to the starting location of a hike. And the hike then will be the topic of part 11B. I just find it nicer to keep that in different videos. Besides the rather "aesthetic" reasons for doing this, there's also technical reasons, but i do not want to bore you with that stuff ;) Well, actually everything is said now. Have fun with the video!

The first Willma Poppen album is OUT NOW!

Yess, you can order the album right now, BUT... there are some difficulties... unfortunately... Ok, as you may know I distribute music via the retailer Routenote and it seems, that it will take some time until the album is on my Routenote shop and then it will take another 2 to 6 weeks until it is available on iTunes, Amazon etc. I do not want to bore you with the details...

But I really want you to be able to get the album right now, especially because some of you have been waiting such a looong time for it. So the only way for you to get the album is to order it from me directly. To keep it all short & crisp, here's what to do:

1. The price of the album is 9,99 € or 11,99 US$.
2. Send that ammount of money either to my Paypal account ( or write an E-Mail to and I will send you the banking details for bank transfer.
3. Once you have sent the money, please write me a mail with your name, your E-Mail address and method of payment.
4. Once I received your payment, I will send a RAR-archive containing the album to the E-Mail address you provided. If this doesn't work for you, I will provide you with a download link where you can download the album.

What you get is all 13 tracks of the album in pristine 320 kbps MP3 quality plus the front cover graphics in high resolution. Talking about quality: This is NOT the bad quality you can listen to at Soundcloud or in the AlionLive videos. Soundcloud as well as Youtube heavily compresses the audio and I am allways disappointed when I upload either a track to Soundcloud or video to Youtube how bad it sounds there. So if you buy the album, you will be able to listen to Willma Poppen in a quality you have never heared before.

If you have ANY questions about the ordering process described above, if you prefer a different way of payment or of receiving the album or a different audio format, please feel free to send an E-Mail to and I will do my best to help you.

Sorry for the inconvinience

Done! The last track for the Willma Poppen album is HERE!

Yeah, we've been quite busy, yes?  During one month we released 4 tracks! I think this deserves some praise, eh? And if this wasn't enough: We released a total of 8 tracks this year. I nearly cannot believe it myself, if i think about the fact, that in the 3 years before we barely managed to release about 4 tracks. Well, now it is done and we are allmost ready to release that long awaited album.

What is keeping us from releasing it just NOW? Well, principles of me, Sonny von Alion, grandmaster of the Willma Poppen Illuminati lodge. I noticed some, not just little, oddities in the mix of 3 of the total of 13 magical tracks destined for the album. All those of you who listened to all 13 tracks not just one time, will know which tracks i am talking about. I will take a CLOSE look on the original project data of those tracks and see what i can do. And THEN when everything sounds like I want it, THEN the album will be thrown at the hungry audience. DEUS VULT!

And now, without any more words, here is THE HOLY ARPEGGIATUS!

Dances with Bears: Willma Poppen did it again!

And once again there's new sounds from the Willma Poppen Project. If you followed the project so far, you will know, that there is just one track to do until the first Willma Poppen album will be released. Well, we've come a long way, eh? Also the frontpage of the coverart is allready done and you see it at the top of this posting. I must confess, that my creative share at creating it is rather small, as it is a very old painting depicting the french revolution. To all my envious "haters": Forget it: The man who painted this has gone to his forefathers over 100 years ago. So there's no way to sue me over this ;)

The current song with the nice title "Disco Bear" again is a collaborative work with my partners from the project. And so, without any more words we will enjoy the nice sounds of another Willma Poppen song. Enjoy!

GOAL! Willma has calved for the second time in just ONE WEEK!

Yes, dammit! it has happened! Do you remember the days when there was about a year of nothing between two Willma Poppen song releases? Holy shit! And now it happened: The second song release of the project in just four days! This time dear Willma takes us back to her happy childhood, when sandbox friends died in questionable ways and other stuff happened you better do not ask about. Well the colder and darker time of the year is approaching and Willma (at the young age of nearly 130 years) becomes somewhat sentimental.

This current release is again a work with 3 and a half of the most contributing project members! I salute you! And now have fun with the new release!

Willma Poppen did it again! New song "Joyriding in Popp-Town"!

Yes, dear friends of the Popp-Madness: It is done again! Fasten your seatbelts (or not... on your own risk), because Willma really puts the pedal to the metal this time. The new track is titled "Joyriding in Popp-Town" and is not just a bit different from the previous Willma Poppen releases. You can read all about it and the quite interesting story about it on the official Willma Poppen Blog. But you can listen to it here too if you are not interested in the facts behind it's creation. Enjoy some joyriding in Popp-Town with Willma!
