Pictures added, videos to come / 2009-01-20
You may have noticed that I added pictures to both Myspace and the Pictures section on this site. I will post a rough video compilation later on, but it will probably take a while. Nothing more to report at this point, but we'll most likely have a rehearsal session this weekend with Matti. Maybe this time we'll have a bit more clips to post.
All guitars and bass tracks are now on tape! / 2009-01-18
I just finished recording all the bass tracks for the 11 songs in about 3,5 hours including a dinner break :D Not too shabby. Okay, now that all the instruments are on tape, I can start working on the lyrics over the next month or so. I'll try some different things this time and maybe Matti will do some lyrics too. I'll post some pictures and videos from the session some time later too. Gotta go through them first and make a nice compilation.

Starting the new year off / 2009-01-05
I just uploaded a third new instrumental demo song to Myspace. The song has the working title Xenomorphosis. Enjoy: http://www.myspace.com/vortechmetal
Oh yeah, and everything's ready to start recording the final guitars and bass for the next album! I'll start the sessions tomorrow, and I'll do some updates as I go. This will take about a week or so, since I also tab out (text and Guitar Pro) the songs at the same time. Once the instrument tracks are finished, I'll start working on the lyrics.
End of the Year / 2008-12-30
Well, I'm now setting up the final recording project files for each song and I'm ready to start recording the guitars and bass for the next album. Shouldn't take too long anymore. The final tracklist is also forming up, with only some minor changes in a few places.
And as usual, here's my Top 10 albums for the year. If you haven't heard these, give 'em a listen. Really nice stuff, at least for me:
01. Opeth - Watershed
02. Darkspace - Dark Space III
03. The Amenta - n0n
04. Amon Amarth - Twilight of the Thunder God
05. Scar Symmetry - Holographic Universe
06. Gojira - The Way of All Flesh
07. Arcana - Raspail
08. Black Comedy - Instigator
09. Misery Index - Traitors
10. Qntal - Translucida
And as for gigs, I've got a few threads running and we'll see how they work out. There's also going to be a gig at a festival in Liminka, and they're threatening to make us the headliner ;) Should be fun then.
Have a nice year now.
