Some small news to tell. Firstly, I have completed all the necessary tracks etc for Vortech rehearsals and live shows, so now we can begin rehearsing. At the same time, I went through the unfinished Deep Beneath text tabulatures, and all of them are now finished too. You can see them in the Tabs section.
You asked for it, you got it!

You can now buy all three Vortech albums as FLAC files from TheGround.com. Each album costs 3,99 euros and here's the direct links:
The same payment options (PayPal, Visa, Visa Electron, MasterCard, etc) are available as before.
The artwork for the albums can be downloaded here
It's a live one, soon
15 Sep 2008
Alright, the preparations are soon nearing an end. I've finished almost all the backing tracks (drums, electronics, etc). All live drums use the same Superior Drummer 2.0 kit, so that there's the same drum sound for all songs from each album. And at that, I also re-composed a lot of the drumming from Conclusion and Wasteland. The drums still play mostly the same base beats, but with different fills and such, and sometimes different beats altogether. A lot of the songs have new synths added too, and in a few cases there's all new synth work in the songs that didn't have any on the album (Their Contract and Winds of Contamination, most prominently). So, you'll hear much new stuff in the live renditions of the songs :)
I still need to finish a few more songs, though, but it shouldn't take long. The next step is rehearsing all the songs with Matti, and hopefully we can start the rehearsals this weekend. Once we can nail most of the songs, we can start looking for gigs :)
Another review + more
3 Sep 2008
There's another decent review. There's more to come still, and reviews should be appearing in some magazines too, so hopefully there'll be more and more exposure :)
Update, 4 September:
Another review has been published, over at Stalker Music (in Finnish):
A very nice review mostly, with only some minor nitpicks here and there about the music. Apparently the Wasteland review is coming soon too.
New demo song now streaming
28 Aug 2008
Go on to our Myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/vortechmetal to listen to a brand new demo song in full! The song is instrumental at the moment, but there will be vocals on the album version.
Oh and I've decided to take up on describing the genre of Vortech as Cybertech, since it gets a bit old saying "Industrial black/death progressive metal" :) That name should concisely tell what the music is all about.
