DAY 2 IN STUDIO
4 Jan 2007
Alright, just as I hoped yesterday, I managed to record all the guitars for three more songs, and now there's just three songs left to record, and all guitars are done! Tomorrow I'll also record the fastest song on the album, Perdition, which is basically 3 minutes of almost non-stop bombing at 258 bpm :) Not that any of the other songs are slow, either... heh.
Hopefully I'll manage to record all the remaining three songs tomorrow :) Over and out.
RECORDING UPDATE, Part 1
3 Jan 2007
Greetings again. I have now finished recording 25% of all the guitars, and it's sounding nice so far :) I hope to finish all the guitars for three more songs tomorrow, and I will most likely be done by this weekend. I have also filmed a few video clips and taken some pictures, which I will add to the site once I've gone through them. Stay tuned for more updates!
24 Dec 2006
So, just in time for the celebrations, I just wanted to inform you that I'm currently setting up a new forum for our bands (Vortech and Coldway). This one will be based on phpBB2, so it will be a much better and usable one for all sorts of posting. A variety of user choosable skins are also added :) More info coming later on.
Ja sama suomeksi. Eli pistå® juuri uutta foorumia kasaan Vortechille ja Coldwaylle, phpBB2-pohjaisena. Mukaan tulee lå«¤ vaihdettavia ulkoasuja, ja kåº´ettå·¹ys paranee muutenkin. Tarkempaa infoa tulee myò¨¥min.
The forum is now online! Have fun :)
RECORDING TO BEGIN
1 Dec 2006
It seems I have now finished all the songs up, and it's time to start recording the guitars properly. The recordings will begin at the end of December, and I should have all guitars recorded by early January. Then it's time to program the final synth thingies and such. Lastly, I will record all vocals at an appropriate time sometime in January. The album will be mixed in late January, and all should be done by February if all goes smoothly. Check back for more news, and perhaps some pictures and videos from the recording sessions!
And lastly, here's the currently planned tracklist and durations. The song titles will change after the final storyline is done:
01. The Core (2:25)
02. System Failure (4:54)
03. Anthropomorph (3:48)
04. Instigate Hostile Reaction (4:41)
05. Impulse (3:54)
06. Perdition (2:49)
07. The Silence (3:43)
08. Artificial (2:58)
09. Venomous Sky (3:03)
10. Radiant Storm (3:15)
11. Wasteland Roamers (4:36)
Total length 40:04
CONCLUSION ALSO AT LAST.FM
3 Nov 2006
Well, some of you have noticed it a while ago, but here's a more official version. The entire album is previewable at Last.fm here: http://www.last.fm/music/Vortech/Conclusion
In other news, I'm pretty near of the final structures for the songs. There's a total of 15 songs and a few of them will probably be dropped off from the final album, but I haven't decided fully which songs to drop. It's turning out quite nice, being a good continuation and progression on Conclusion. The songs are a lot more aggressive and faster overall. The basic premise for the album is a plane right before, during and after a nuclear war after which only a wasteland is left for the survivors to roam about. Stay tuned ;)
