Background Magazine, who posted a review of FE3 (you can read about that in our Sept 12 post) have recently published an interview with Chris Rupert, where he discusses the concept and composition of the new album. Check it out here.
Also, work on the last song for the new album is moving along well, and the few weeks or so have been spent touching up some details and working on lyrics. It won’t be much longer before this one is done…
Sorry for the long absence, but I’ve been pretty busy working on the last track for the upcoming CD. As promised, it will indeed be epic; the general outline of the song is now a little under 27 minutes long. It may be a bit longer than that when the dust settles, but the bulk of the writing is pretty much done. I’m enjoying the work I’m doing on this (crazy ambitious) work, but I’m also looking forward to hearing it in its completion.
Also, Background Magazine has just printed a review of FE3. If you want to check it out it can be found here. I also did an interview with this magazine, and I’ll post here when it’s published.
I just wanted to update everyone on where we are with this last track: as hinted at in our May 25 post, this last track will indeed be an epic one. I’ve been working on its various parts, and although I’m currently hovering around the 14 minute mark, it doesn’t feel like it’s quite ready to end just yet.
Looks like this one’s going to be a long one…
