The only way to exit…

… is going piece by piece. That means J just finished up the vocals for the second tune. That’s how you do it; get into the studio, do the fucken work, and leave. No bullshit. I know how well Jonas and J work together, so it comes as no surprise that they deliver on all accounts, every single time. You wanna know how everything looks at this point (actually, I know you wanna hear how everything sounds, but that will have to wait a little longer)? Here’s the deal:

1. J has decided to nail one song per studio session, meaning it’s quality over quantity. With the pace he’s currently setting, his stuff should be wrapped up in a month or so, if everything goes as planned.

2. Ruby is currently on vacation and will pick up her work in a week or 2.

3. Drummer extra-ordinaire Dirk’s got 2 songs left to put down, but since he’s super busy with all kinds of stuff, he’ll resume work in the middle/end of September. In his own words: “- I tried to squeeze another song in last week, but I don’t wanna do an half-assed job”. I don’t think this guy could do an half-assed job if his life depended on it, though.

4. Still waiting on the word on guitar hero Mike Wead’s status. He’s been busy doing King Diamond shows and whatnot, but he assures me he will deliver. I do not doubt that for a millisecond.

5. I have gotten to the point where I really am starting to feel my work is pretty much done as far as the songs and my playing go. There are so many layers, so many details, so many hours put into this, I believe I have nailed it. It’s even gotten to the point where I am now writing music for other things since I can let my mind go off this a bit and let the other guys do their magic and complete my vision. That’s a nice feeling.

6. Statik Majik (website) has shown me some more of the booklet and the graphics that will be used for this album, and as always it looks amazing.

As you can see, things are moving forward and everything is coming together now. You interested in hearing this beautiful piece of music eventually? Then you need to click me and get to work.

Stay tuned for more information and keep an eye on these two important topics over at our forums.
