Review on new Sue magazine

16 Oct 2008

You can read it in Finnish here (pages 32 - 33):
http://www.sanomapaino.fi/nakoislehti/rsue/index.html

And I've recently started working on the next website layout :) And as for demos, there's now 10 complete demo songs clocking in at a little over 42 minutes, but I'll keep on making more songs until the end of the year. Then I'll start going through the arrangements, songs and so on to finish them up and decide which songs will be on the album. Lyrics will most likely be done around late December to February, and then I'll start recording.

Strange review

10 Oct 2008

Well, here's certainly a strange review of Deep Beneath:
http://www.seaoftranquility.org/reviews.php?op=showcontent&id=6873. The reviewer basically quotes half of the covering letter and then tells you that he really doesn't know anything about this genre of music :) Ah well, maybe it's a different angle then. The strangest part is that the same site just had Psycroptic, Gojira and Vader reviews...

Oh and in other news, I've recently done a few more demo songs (Bleak Existence & Shedding the New Flesh) for the next album, plus started to work on a fully electronic song too. I'll see what will come of it, but it should be interesting nevertheless.

Edit:
Woops, make that three new demo songs :) Just finished a song called Synthetic Life, with lots of melodies and tricky rhythm guitars.

Album prices

10 Oct 2008

I just wanted to remind those of you who use the US dollar that since the dollar has been strengthening recently against the Euro, the relative prices of our albums have dropped. Each CD costs 16.20 USD, and all full FLAC album downloads cost 5.39 USD.

You can get them from the usual place, on TheGround.com:

Deep Beneath (CD/FLAC/MP3)
Wasteland (CD/FLAC/MP3)
Conclusion (CD/FLAC/MP3)

Reverb Nation

29 Sep 2008

I just opened up an accout for Vortech at Reverb Nation. I added a new instrumental demo song available there, called Posthumanism. Go check it out:

Update:
Heh, except that their servers crashed? Seems to be back online.

Dry rehearsing and guestbook update

28 Sep 2008

Well, I started dry rehearsing at home today and after a few completions, it's starting to feel real good with the songs. Except for a few extreme jumps from rhythm to lead guitar, everything goes nice and smoothly. I won't reveal the song list, because that would ruin the fun :) But I can tell that there's 1 song from Conclusion, 4 songs from Wasteland and 4 songs from Deep Beneath, and the total duration is somewhere around 40 minutes in all. We will begin rehearsing next weekend and hopefully we'll make it in time to do some gigs this year.

And regarding the guestbook. I'm not sure if there was some bug in it, making some messages appear empty, but I just re-wrote it from scratch and now it definitely should function without problems (plus a bit more streamlined). So, if your messages have disappeared, try it now.
