Demo vocals in progress
4 Jun 2013
So far four songs have fully completed demo vocals done. That leaves 10 songs left to do for me, and 4 songs for Mikko. The 4 songs are the songs Mikko wrote lyrics for. Should be interesting to hear what he came up with! Tomorrow I will continue recording more demo vocals, with hopefully 5 more songs receiving the demo effect :P
Tabs done! Commence demo vocals...

All the guitar tablatures have now been completed! 18 songs in an easy format to learn from! So, that leads the way to recording the demo vocals, which will serve as a guideline for the final vocals. Once they are done, I will begin recording the final guitars for the new album!
Finalizing phase before recording starts

One song left to do lyrics for! Overall, the lyrics are mixture of something familiar and something abstract. You should find them very nice and cozy to paint a dystopian mental picture with, hehe. This time around, the themes are centered slightly further in the future, where things are different in many ways. Neon lights reflecting from pouring rain puddles on sleek steel, destroyed in long-past conflicts.
I have also started working on the Guitar Pro tabs for the songs, so all you guitar slingers can have a go at the songs! Perhaps I will do some instruction videos too. As the songs have quite a bit of new tricks, in terms of Vortech, there should be some nice revelations to be found when checking the tabs! Look forward to the tabs on our updated website, published with the release of the album!
Anyway, the next point on the schedule is recording the demo vocals. A very important thing to do, as you would expect. After doing the demos, we will check how the lyrics work with the phrasing and such, and if something needs to be adjusted before recording the real vocals. Once the demo vocals are done, it is time to begin recording album number 6...
Lyrics soon done!

Just some finalization left to do, and then the lyrics are finally done for the next release!
Fulltime lyrics generation
11 Apr 2013
The lyrics for the next album are well underway, with about 70% of them ready for demo vocals! Once the lyrics are done and demoed, it's time to start recording the album! Much work has been done to make sure it's as streamlined and complete as possible, with a few songs appearing in another context.. More news on that later!
