As you can see, the site has now been updated. If you see anything strange, try refreshing via Ctrl + F5. There's a lot of new material on the site, including a full and extremely thorough history of the band in the Bio section. It also has some additional information about past members. What's completely new is the Live section, which will list all our future performances and also all our past performances with complete setlists, pictures or videos from the show and some information about the show and equipment. Don't forget the Guestbook either!
There is now a separate Shop section with complete ordering information for all Vortech albums and future merchandise, once they are available.

Promotional material and updates
25 Jul 2008
I'm sending promotional albums for select magazines and websites on Monday, so in a while there should be a lot of new reviews for Deep Beneath (13 places) and Wasteland (5 places). Also, I'm currently finishing up a brand new layout for the Vortech website. It will include some new material and sections, plus a few surprises!
And finally, as some of you may have noticed on Last.fm, I've got six songs demoed for the next Vortech album. This time I've been doing a mixture of speed and electronics, which should provide more listening pleasure ;) The working titles for the songs are: Afterworld, Humanity:Static, Posthumanism, The Wolves, Transcendence and Xenomorphosis.
And lastly, Vortech albums are still available to buy worldwide from TheGround.com at a good price. You can also buy them from me for 11,99 euros per CD via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org (EU countries only). Levyjä¡³aat edelleen ostettua lå©¥ttå®¤llä¡³å©«ò°¯³tia minulle, hintaa levyllä¡¯n 11,99 euroa.

I've finished with the material and have sent an order for the CDs to the factory. Unfortunately the super jewelbox was a bit too expensive, so I decided to go with the regular jewelbox instead. Anyways, there will be 100 pcs of both Wasteland and Deep Beneath available, and 50 pcs of Conclusion.
And as a special bonus for CD orders, there are two bonus tracks on Deep Beneath (instrumental original demo versions of Biodroid Legions and Retribution), plus the making of... video for the album, which you can watch at Youtube too in lower quality.
I will start taking orders once the CDs arrive, which shouldn't take too long anymore. If all goes well, they'll be available on Friday the 13th (oooh) of June. Each CD will cost 12 euros (18 USD) + shipping: 3 euros in Europe, 4 euros (6 USD) for the rest of the world. If you order more CDs, the shipping will be cheaper per CD.
The t-shirts will be available later this month.
Update, 10 June 2008:
Looks like payments from outside the EU area would be problematic (expensive). I'll try looking into other options, so that fans living outside the EU area can also buy the albums. There's a distributor possibility, which would also make PayPal a possible payment method. The problem is that it would make the CDs a little bit more expensive, but if you order several CDs at once, after the shipping costs they will cost less.
Deep Beneath has been downloaded 430 times, and Wasteland is soon at 400! Things are progressing well so far, and I should have the CD prints of the three full length albums available in mid-June. They will be in super jewel box form with an 8-page booklet with all the lyrics and I'll see if there will be some additional artwork for the inner pages.
I'll also start working on some new material around that time. I don't know how the material will turn out, but I have a feeling it will be quite fast with a lot more keyboards and synths now with a MIDI keyboard available.
