The brand new reissue of our 2012 album Devoid of Life is now available! You can get it here:

Devoid of Life 2016

This release is completely mixed again from scratch and features a modern hard-hitting and sharp mix. And also some tweaks and tricks here and there. The tracklist has also changed with Lost and Unveiling the Future switching places for a slightly more interesting flow!

Enjoy the emptiness!

Now in Youtube too:

A few songs from the upcoming Devoid of Life re-mix

29 May 2016

As mentioned, there will be a new version of Devoid of Life later this year, where all the songs have been completely mixed from the ground up for a sleek modern production. The drums are re-built as the originals are not available. The drums also feature some changes and they are more like the way we have been rehearsing them. Enjoy!

Plans for 2016

4 Feb 2016

So the year has started off and some of you might notice it's a special year! It marks the 10th anniversary as Vortech, and it's also the equal anniversary of our first full length!

This year will have two special releases:

1) A brand new mix of Devoid of Life, which has been requested every now and then. It is actually already done, with some small tweaks left to do, and then it will be released as a digital-only version. More news on that soon!

2) The motherlode: A "Best of" type of album consisting of COMPLETELY re-recorded AND newly mixed songs spanning all albums, except for Devoid of Life, which will have a new mix, as mentioned above, and the newest album ...of What Remains. There will also be some minor changes to the songs here and there, based on how we have rehearsed and played live. The songs from our electronic album, The Occlusion, will be re-written as traditional songs with drums and all. The plan is to have Mikko record all the vocals, but we'll see if there's any guest vocals...

The re-recorded album has a working title of "Refactored" and the plan is to have the following songs in chronological order - the actual release will probably have them in a mixed order, almost like a new album.

Mind Awakening
Sycophant Gods
The Core
Evolutionary Project
Instigate Hostile Reaction
Radiant Storm
Biodroid Legions
Destined to Fall
The New Creations
Shedding the Flesh
Charcoal Earth
Sparks of Ignition
Below Radar

This will be an exciting project for sure! All the songs will feature a very pristine modern production and with upgraded synth sounds etc.

And of course there's some new demo songs being done here and there for the next full length album. The album will probably be ready in 2017, though.

Stick around!
