Yes, after a prolonged hiatus (been busy on all other fronts…) I managed to round up the guys and we did a song called “Plight”. It’s out on this friday from all mojor streaming platforms. This time around Miri Miettinen sat on the drum stool, but otherwise the line-up is the same: Me on guitars, some keys, some basses and background vocals, Teijo on lead vocals and lead keys, Samu on bass, Pepa on wind instruments and Pekka on vibes. Hope You enjoy it!
We’ve done most of the crunchy guitars and moved on to the mellower tones….
After the first real summer holiday in 10 years, settling back into work routines wasn’t that easy. I decided to do “make work” first. So in the last week of my holiday, I sat down every morning and made a song. I managed to compose 6 songs in as many days. They should serve as a nice launch pad for the next SSTB project. Speaking of which: the “blacks & blues” is ready, I just need to make the ddp compilation and off it goes. Here’s the final front cover:
Once the groove was found, real work was in order: The mixing of “Requiem” with Ville Katajala and the recording and editing of “Lomasankarit” foleys with Kimmo Vänttinen. In betweens we managed to go through the demos for Liquid Wolf 2 with Samu, I also began to take them one step further by adding and refining. We should have the skeletons of songs in a few months…
Yes, it’s been hot, but what the heck, it’s summer! The autumns work starts by recording some foleys with Kimmo Vänttinen for Lomasankarit. We also made plans with Samu to start going thru the Liquid Wolf -material for the second album. I have maybe an hours worth of demos which should yield maybe 20 minutes usable material. The SSTB album is making it’s second round of mixing/mastering, I checked the songs after the first round and found a few
😉 things to correct. Pauli said he would master it next week, Tomi made also some promises re: the cover for next week. The album will be called “Blacks & blues”. SSTB will be released ASAP, so I’d guess by the mid september…
Chapter One : Two seems to be delayed somewhat since we’re planning to record some new stuff for it and the guys aren’t the most dynamic…
Added some nice reviews of Liquid Wolf “First Light” to the LW section.
And yes, we’re slowly getting the FlipSide “ep#2” material into shape.
Have a good one!
Now playing: “For Nothing” (O.S.I)
The guys very kindly review “First Light”. Check ’em out!
