She’s on a roll and not far away from wrapping up her demos now, all of which sounds absolutely killer. Not much more to report at the moment, we’re all having vacation and J is going to his native Gotland shortly, meaning he’ll concentrate on getting his vocals down sometime after that. Dirk is hard at work as always and I expect new material from him shortly. I am always fiddling with the detail work within the songs, leaving nothing to chance. It’s quite some time left before we will wrap this up, but everything is still going according to plan.
That’s all for now.
I have been working on a few new, special things for the album over the past week and this is really coming together nicely. I still have some work left with this before it’s finished. Yet another step that will enhance The Domination. Also, Ruby is halfway into her next tune, meaning she’s working real hard and getting closer and closer to wrapping up her demos. It all sounds absolutely killer and she’s so pumped to enter the studio as soon as she’s done with this stage of the process.
Don’t forget to click the picture to the right (the one to the left is not clickable, so don’t even go there) to find out how to get the new album when it’s done. And last off… Embrace the signs:
A few days ago Dirk handed over the second track and he definitely added some brutality in this one that I didn’t expect. Absolutely awesome work on his account, making the tune in question even more ferocious. I am speechless. Not much more to report at the moment, but keep on checking in for all the latest news on the recording and the process of completing this next beast.
This is surpassing my wildest expectations.
Our beloved Ms. Roque just finished up another track with all of her vocal parts and she did yet another amazing job at it. Some really beautiful as well as powerful things in this one (like the others are lacking such… not) and it’s fantastic to see so many different aspects of her voice this time around. Awesome work, kid. Awesome work. As mentioned, Dirk is about to wrap up his second tune as well. To say that things are moving forward just according to plan is not a lie. During all of this I am, of course, spending time with the details – making sure everything comes together as I want it to. J told me some days ago that’s he’ll start tracking his vocals asap, and that sure is something I so look forward to. He just needs to find the time for it, you know.
A lot of the stuff I say here will be pretty much repetitions from other updates, something you’ll just have to live with. I believe it’s more important to update you all on all the small details on the progress instead of giving you a bigger update once a month or so. Appreciate it or not, that’s how it is. Also, there’s really no need for you guys to ask us questions over at Facebook since we don’t really use that, as mentioned before. We are grateful to whoever set it up for us, getting these updates posted there automatically and so forth. Do comment on there though, it’s always nice to see some input on our updates. But if you wanna interact with us and get answers to your questions – use our forum.
Besides that, not much to report. We will continue to work extremely hard on this album, the one recording that will define our whole career up to this point, without a doubt. Just wait and you will see.
Last off: do not forget the signs…
Looks like Dirk will be finished with the second song tonight or tomorrow. Just had a great conversation with him and he’s really inspired and pumped to do this album – and it shows. I have no idea how he pulls off some of the stuff that is on this recording to be honest. It’s a privilege to be able to work with the best people in the business: Jörgen, Ruby, Tobben, Dirk, Mike Wead, Dan Swanö and so on… You are all my personal heroes. This will be something else, Haters. You just wait…
