There have been a number of inquiries about how the new album was progressing and when it would become a reality... Nic just dropped this note off at the stables ... but basically
all tracks for the album are now writ, demo'd up and recording underway!
so anyway ... transcribed below.
We're finally there with track selection (heard that before... ned) and all have been recorded in demo form. After much experimentation, market research and the usual jaffa cake, diamond white and red bull frenzies, we've taken a bit of a different approach to this album. Can't say too much yet, but we're all getting very excited as we hear it coming together.
We're sort of going back to the bands early sound in some ways - a bit more medieval influenced than of late - but with the advantage of ten years practise! The new stuff is also much more of a reflection of our own personal musical tastes - we're all serial headbangers at heart!
But don't be afraid.
... OK, be afraid, but don't be worried... it still sounds like us!! In fact it sounds more like us than ever before!!! It just took us a while to work out what we sound like. It's not easy this, when you have a combined band attention span of 3 minutes :o)
I've already put drums down for some of the toons and all the final recording should be complete in 3 or 4 weeks. Then all we gotta do is mix it, so about another 5 years... :o) Heheh, only joshing. A couple of months should do it.
You're gonna LOVE it.
Or we'll send Big Stan round.
Watch this proverbial space... Nic
