Already looking to the future!

23 Oct 2010

And in case you missed it at some point, there will also be a 4-song EP after the new album has been released. It will feature songs that were composed at the same time as the other songs on the new album, but didn't fit stylistically to the album. They're still great songs, so hence the extra EP ;) And as just a high-five to some long-term fans, and new ones too, here's a teaser clip on how one of those songs on the EP sounds like! Enjoy ;)

Let the speculation start on which of the four songs that one is... hehe.

Meanwhile in Finland...

I just finished one long-term project that some of you might have been waiting for. Yes, the elusive Making of Posthumanism video! I'm currently uploading it to Youtube, so expect a link very soon :) 7,5 minutes of tight information!

Here you go!

Some more progress

15 Oct 2010

I just finished a preliminary final mix for the new album, and it sounds very nice and raw (Recto, baby!). And that leaves just the vocals to be recorded, and then to import them in. The album will finish on the fly along with the vocals, so it might be quick!

And also, I just finished making the first draft for the album artwork, so things are slowly falling into place for the release! Hopefully I will be able to make a professional CD-R release for both the new album, plus Posthumanism.

Vocals & Other

3 Oct 2010

Matti has requested some more time to rehearse the vocals for the album, so the recording has been postponed for a while. So, meanwhile that will give me the opportunity to continue on the second little thing I've planned for the 10th anniversary of Vortech. It will be an album not like the normal anniversary compilation or re-recording, but something quite different indeed!

What it is, is a complete reworking of many Vortech songs released so far. I have first chosen a selection of 16 tracks from the history of Vortech, and then I have decided a completely different music genre that I will use as a guideline for the remaking of each song :) In every case, completely different than what the original was.

Once this special release is ready, you will hear, for example, a black metal version of Apoapsis Mentis, a lounge/orchestral version of Humanity: Static, a dubstep/industrial version of Evolutionary Project, a jazz version of Terra Ultimatum, drum & bass version of The Core, a dark ambient version of Biodroid Legions, and many many more equally interesting remakes! And maybe a few surprises too...

And as a final bonus, here is a quick sneak preview on what is to come! ;) Enjoy!

Vocal recording

17 Aug 2010

The schedule is starting to take form. If all goes well, the vocals for the next album will be recorded in the beginning of September! Hopefully the album will be in release form by October or November.
