The mixing is coming along, not done yet but getting there. Last weekend Pasi went to Helsinki to record some guest performances for a couple of the songs. I’m still doing the some keyboard fixes but we’re really close with this one. I’m sure we’ll be done in a couple of weeks by the latest….and then it’s time for a Christmas break. Actually not quite since I have to do some programming and learn the songs for the upcoming shows. Since there’s gonna be some new stuff and some that we haven’t played I don’t want to leave it all for January, which in addition to the band rehersals and shows is kinda swamped with mastering of the album and videoshooting and whatnot. Anyway, there’s not much I can reveal about the record at the moment and trying to describe the music with words is bound to fail anyways. It seems that the first single of the album will be out in January 2014, or at least we’re trying to make it happend ;-) My overall feel about these bunch of songs is that we’re back doing melodic metal as opposed to Stones Grow Her Name which was our hard rock adventure. Alrighty, gonna have some breakfast and play some keyboards….because…why not ?
Had no problem with the hard rock adventure at all, but I'm excited about this new one! Especially with Pasi on board. Totally hoping on a bit of prog influence now that you two are working together in Sonata ;)VastaaPoista
Ohh, guest performances! Vocal or musical?
That melodic metal sound you mentioned, is it going to be like the one in Unia? ^^VastaaPoista
No, I don't think so...but that's just my opinion ;-)Poista
The 3 previous albums are masterpieces but going back to bit "older traditional" sonata music world is great news. Waiting is getting more and more harder:)VastaaPoista
Oh man, I have a really good feeling that this album will be great. Absolutely can't wait to hear the first single!VastaaPoista
January.. that's like... next month! O.o Aaaahh it's getting soo close now, I can't wait! :DVastaaPoista
Oh and by the way... are there gonna be tour vids up of the last leg of the SGHN tour? Because I did see Tony with a camera a lot at the european tour (the Dutch shows then) and hope to see some of that back...
Is there going to be a signed version of the single? Looking forward to that anyways :) Am I so excited about this... hard to wait :D But see you in Jan. & Feb. ;)VastaaPoista
Will you make a DVD of one of the 15th Anniversary shows? Perhaps including the infamous Unia documentary..? It'd be a great addition to your historic releases, imo :)VastaaPoista
At the moment we're not planning on recording or filming any of these 15th anniversary shows....Poista
I loved Unia! I hope there are some more progressive elements to this album.VastaaPoista
