The lyrics are now, for the most part, finished for the main release. The next step is to arrange them to suit the songs: the flow, the rhythm and so on. Once that is finished, we're ready to start recording them! But before that, we have a gig to prepare to, and you will hear three new songs at the show, plus two songs which we've never played live yet. So it will be a fun show with lots of new things. See you there!

Some delays

7 Jul 2010

Seems like I caught a sore throat, so recording the demo vocals has been delayed for a while (1-4 weeks). Meanwhile, I'll continue writing the remaining lyrics. Most of them are already finished, but I won't mark them in the list below until I have an mp3 with the demo vocals. I'll also rehearse for the upcoming gig in Rovaniemi, at Grande on 23 July.

Now it's time to work on the lyrics! This is, of course, a much slower process. But it shouldn't take too long, as I intend to have the album out before October. Hopefully much earlier, though :)

[x] The Black Rite
[x] Neurovirus
[x] Shattered Cities
[x] Demon In the Circuitry
[x] Frozen Machine
[x] Lost
[x] Unveiling the Future
[x] The Apocalypse
[ ] Grains of Reality

And another one for the EP tracks:

[ ] Charcoal Earth
[ ] Chaos Dimension
[ ] Pyre of Souls
[ ] Wire Synapse

Well, finished :D

9 Jun 2010

Why wait until tomorrow when you can do it today...

Start: 17:34
Finished: 22:24

4 hours and 50 minutes to record all the bass guitars for the new album, plus bounce the tracks... not bad ;)

Now it's time to start working on the vocals, and doing some initial test mixes.

Progress with bass, preparing for vocals

9 Jun 2010

Okay, I'm currently recording the bass tracks for the songs, and so far three songs have been finished. Once the bass is finished, I will also bounce the guitar and bass tracks, so that the song is ready for vocal recording and subsequent mixing. Each song will once again be listed below and I will check them once they're finished.

As for vocals, I still don't have much in the way of lyrics - only one sketch of full lyrics for The Black Rite, and some lines here and there for the others. Matti has some lyrics for a few songs, so there's still a few more to finish. Once all the bass tracks are recorded and the songs prepared, I will start to concentrate on the lyrics. The idea is forming quite well for the theme of the album, but more on that later... meanwhile:
