Updates for August
25 Aug 2007
Well, looks like it didn't work out. I guess I'll have to record the vocals myself, probably tomorrow morning. Anyways, there's now seven new demo songs and exactly 30 minutes of material for the next Vortech album. I'm going to do three more songs and possibly some intermission electronic things or maybe some more ambient and then start writing the lyrics for them. At the same time, I'll probably start recording all the DI tracks for the songs and see where it goes from there. Maybe I'll have them reamped or just use an amp emulator again.
That's what I'd say about this fifth new song that I wrote :) Things are progressing nicely with 20 minutes of new material ready at this point. A second bunch of new stuff still needs to be done over time and I should have a very nice release ready once more. Which leads us to Wasteland. I sent Daedolon some clean vocal demo lines and he'll do those at his studio sometime soon. Should provide a nice edge to the track Instigate Hostile Reaction. That's the last one remaining at this point.
The time draws nearer...

I finished doing the final mixes with vocals and everything for 8 songs today. I'm going to do some small additional vocals on "The Core" to finish that song up, and Kraken has promised to finish his vocals on the last remaining song next week. Hopefully this time it works out and I can finally do the last touches for the album. As for the mix, it's sounding very kickin' and delightfully raw at the moment. Can't wait to release this baby :)
While waiting for Kraken and Daedolon to finish their vocal stuff, I decided to record a real bass to all the songs on Wasteland. And that's what I did. I started this morning at around 11:30 and finished at 16:00. Nice and swift, heh. Oh, I also had a gig with Relativity on Friday at Oulu, and it went pretty nicely. I also got to meet Kraken and Daedolon face to face. What a strange bunch ;)
Brand new layout!
21 Jul 2007
As I promised in the forum, here you have the brand new website layout with much added content! Also, the problems you occasionally saw with IE6 have been fixed. I've tested the site with Firefox 220.127.116.11, Opera 9.22 and Internet Explorer 6 SP1 with all updates, and everything has worked fine even after intentionally trying to break the layout :D
Go and browse around for new stuff. The studio diaries have been updated, there's a whole section of brand new print-size album artwork files and the guestbook has been updated a bit. Have fun. Oh and the usual deal: if you see something strange in the layout, try force-refreshing with Ctrl + F5
