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.
You can now order the CD albums anywhere in the world through TheGround.com (Note: new address). Initially there's 10 pcs of each album available, but if the stock runs out I will send them more albums. Be quick though, as the stocks are small! Have fun :)
36 pcs of Conclusion are available 77 pcs of Wasteland are available 67 pcs of Deep Beneath are available (figures updated as orders/reservations are placed)
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.
