Ville is almost done tracking bass for the new album.

Here’s snippets from track 11 (a rocking Maiden-influenced song in 7/4), track 10B (an instrumental) and track 6 (check out that opening drums/bass hook!).

Drums are in the can!

All of the drum tracks for the next album are done, thirteen songs as always. 😈

Two snare mics plus a piezo clip on the bottom rim, four octobans, five toms, left double bass drum, right double bass drum, two overheads and two room mics – in total there’s 18 channels of boom, crack, crash and cling goodness!

Next, I’ll move the mics over to my kit and start recording drums for the next Aquaplan album. Meanwhile Ville has already started recording bass for the Trusties album.

Problem solved – drum recording continues

We managed to find a replacement bearing that fits on the axis bass drum pedal. Pedals are working and drum recording can continue!

Here’s some more pics of the miked drumkit.

Busted bearing… oh crap!

So… drum recording is almost done, there’s just one song that’s not done yet. It’s just our luck that we run into a hitch so close to the finish line.

“What the f..k is up with these bass drum pedals??”
“Let’s check if the settings are the same for left and right pedal… nope that’s not it.”
“WTF, the right pedal feels very sticky and unresponsive?!?”

Turns out one of the bearings in the right pedal is busted. Hopefully we’ll get a replacement soon.

We’re recording a new album!

Exciting news! All of the music and lyrics for the next album has been written and currently we are recording drum and bass tracks!

Last year was spent arranging and rehearsing the new material and now we’re finally at the stage where we get to realize the new songs on (virtual) tape.

More old live stuff …
