More Album Progress

More Album Progress

Just wanted to make a quick post to let everyone know how the album is progressing. You may remember from our previous post that Rob had recorded drums for the first half of Final Dissent. At that time, the plan was to have all the drums recorded by the end of the summer, but unfortunately Rob got a pretty nasty gash in his left hand index finger (“my snare finger, man”), so we’ve had to postpone any further drum recording until that heals up. In the meantime, I’ve been working on recording various instruments and vocals for the other songs. We’re now at a point where pretty much everything is done except for some harmony vocals (that Rob should be recording soon, now that his finger has him out of commission), and, of course, the leviathan Final Dissent. This should give you a clearer idea of what we have left:

  1. Arcane Knowledge – some backup vocals still left to record
  2. Just One More Wish – finished
  3. What Are You Waiting For? – finished
  4. Not Everyone’s Cup of  Tea – some backup vocals still left to record
  5. Whatever Happened to Christmas? – finished
  6. Final Dissent – drums recorded for 1st half, along with guitar and keyboard parts for the first few minutes

More of the guitar and keyboard parts are being recorded weekly, so it shouldn’t be long before I’m caught up with Rob. We’ll keep you posted as we continue to progress.

Drums for Final Dissent Pt.1

Drums for Final Dissent Pt.1

After months of planning, arranging, and rehearsing we finally laid some drum tracks down for the first half of Final Dissent. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but you may remember from previous posts that this epic song is over 27 minutes long, so we’ve gotten a pretty big chunk taken care of. I’ve also been busy working on instruments for the other songs on the album, with plans to record vocals for Not Everyone’s Cup of Tea in the next week or two. Here’s where we’re at:

  1. Arcane Knowledge – some backup vocals still left to record
  2. Just One More Wish – finished
  3. What Are You Waiting For? – finished
  4. Not Everyone’s Cup of  Tea – some acoustic guitar parts, some keyboards, and vocals left to record
  5. Whatever Happened to Christmas? – finished
  6. Final Dissent – drums recorded for 1st half

Here’s a few photos and a video from last night’s session:

Album Progress

Album Progress

Well, 2021 has gotten of to a very rough start for me, but we are making progress in our recording. Rob and I got together earlier this week to go over some ideas he has for drums and percussion for the last track of the upcoming album, Final Dissent. We roughed out about 9 minutes of this mammoth work (you may remember from earlier posts that Final Dissent is over 27 minutes long, so that’s a pretty good sized chunk). I’ve also been able to get some recording done on the other tracks. Here’s a summary of where we’re at:

  1. Arcane Knowledge – nearly done; some guitar parts and backup vocals still left to record
  2. Just One More Wish – really, really nearly done; just need to record a few keyboard parts
  3. What Are You Waiting For? – finished
  4. Not Everyone’s Cup of  Tea – only have drums recorded for this one, but am nearly ready to record rhythm guitar parts and vocals
  5. Whatever Happened to Christmas? – finished
  6. Final Dissent – still writing drum parts

As you can see, we’re inching closer to completion, and Rob is nearly done his drum recording duties. I still have a fair amount of recording to do yet, but I’m confident that I’ll be caught up to Rob soon. We’ll keep you posted as things progress.
