''Geizhals'' is a shelved album by [[ThornBrain]]. It was to be the first full-length album written entirely by Thorn and the first album to be sold, but Thorn officially canceled the album in July 2013. He instead started working on [[Upcoming ThornBrain Album|a currently-unnamed Punk/Experimental album]]. Musically the album was to be darker and heavier, featuring improved production, songwriting and singing from ''[[BlackholeWhitespace]]''. A lack of motivation led to the project ending prematurely, and Thorn returned to recording with a more straightforward, Punk-inspired mindset for a separate album.

"Geizhals" is a German slang term for a greedy miser; it translates literally into "skinflint", and is used similarly to how "redneck" and "chav" are used in English as slang for a type of person.

The cover art will be inspired by a 1926 painting "[http://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Datei:Geizhals,_Margret_Hofheinz-D%C3%B6ring,_Mischtechnik,_1926_(WV-Nr.5579).JPG&filetimestamp=20080630100609 Der Geizhals]" by Margret Hofheinz-Döring and will borrow heavily from the colour palette of ''The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask''. A cropped version of "Der Geizhals" will compose the art for the ''Spider EP''.

Geizhals is a shelved album by ThornBrain. It was to be the first full-length album written entirely by Thorn and the first album to be sold, but Thorn officially canceled the album in July 2013. He instead started working on a currently-unnamed Punk/Experimental album. Musically the album was to be darker and heavier, featuring improved production, songwriting and singing from BlackholeWhitespace. A lack of motivation led to the project ending prematurely, and Thorn returned to recording with a more straightforward, Punk-inspired mindset for a separate album.

Similar to how BhWs followed a theme of paranoia, Geizhals would follow various concepts of perception, be it the alteration thereof or offering contrarian points of view (for example, "Spider" mocks Arachnophobia by offering spiders as a metaphor for an unnoticed but more suitable lover than insects and dogs). "Spider" was the only song recorded before the album was canned; the final version of it will be included on the free companion EP to the new album. A handful of songs intended for Geizhals might also appear in the new album.
