Editing the vocal tracks
8 Jan 2014
I received the final vocal tracks today, and now it is time to do the final editing on them and then finish up the mix. The new album should be out very very soon!
So what inspired this year?
31 Dec 2013
There's been a lot of interesting albums this year, and after a thorough listen to all of them throughout the year, here's what my Top 10 formed up to be:
1. Satyricon - Satyricon
2. Skinny Puppy - Weapon
3. Rotting Christ - Κατά τον δαίμονα εαυτού
4. Dark Tranquillity - Construct
5. Witherscape - The Inheritance
6. Front Line Assembly - Echogenetic
7. Dream Theater - Dream Theater
8. Amorphis - Circle
9. James Labrie - Impermanent Resonance
10. Funker Vogt - Companion In Crime
Are they an indication for the upcoming releases of Vortech? Hard to say, but in any case, they will prove to be a good listen!
We just finished an extensive rehearsal period with the band, and altogether we played probably 6 - 7 hours total. Everything's grooving nicely, and we are thinking of doing a live performance in 2014 - finally!
Mikko is just about ready with all the vocals, so soon it's time to release the new releases, too! It's been a slightly longer schedule than I had hoped for, but it's better to be meticulous for the style the new releases represent...
End of the year sales!

Vocal recordings and new songs
15 Nov 2013
The vocal recordings are progressing up in Kemi, and will accelerate in the next few weeks! Hopefully we can soon hear the end results of the efforts. Meanwhile, as mentioned earlier, I've been writing new songs - in the more familiar industrial death metal style - and there's already four fully finished demo tracks (of the five mentioned in the 24 October post). These sound very good and should bring a smile to any fan! I will continue working on more songs in the next few months, and perhaps there will be a release sooner than expected, since there is already more than 15 minutes of material ready, hehe.
