Rehearsal weekend

1 Feb 2009

This weekend was spent in the rehearsal space and things went pretty well. We played through the set a few times and also recorded the second session. It's not very good quality (a single condenser mic in the middle of the room), so I don't think it's going to be released anywhere.

In the gig front, I've been asking around and so far at least one gig is fairly sure, and another will most likely happen too. More news will come when things move forward.

Pictures added, videos to come

20 Jan 2009

You may have noticed that I added pictures to both Myspace and the Pictures section on this site. I will post a rough video compilation later on, but it will probably take a while. Nothing more to report at this point, but we'll most likely have a rehearsal session this weekend with Matti. Maybe this time we'll have a bit more clips to post.

All guitars and bass tracks are now on tape!

18 Jan 2009

I just finished recording all the bass tracks for the 11 songs in about 3,5 hours including a dinner break :D Not too shabby. Okay, now that all the instruments are on tape, I can start working on the lyrics over the next month or so. I'll try some different things this time and maybe Matti will do some lyrics too. I'll post some pictures and videos from the session some time later too. Gotta go through them first and make a nice compilation.

Starting the new year off

5 Jan 2009

I just uploaded a third new instrumental demo song to Myspace. The song has the working title Xenomorphosis. Enjoy: http://www.myspace.com/vortechmetal

Oh yeah, and everything's ready to start recording the final guitars and bass for the next album! I'll start the sessions tomorrow, and I'll do some updates as I go. This will take about a week or so, since I also tab out (text and Guitar Pro) the songs at the same time. Once the instrument tracks are finished, I'll start working on the lyrics.
