Give me an update on Swano

Hey folks, long time Swano fan! Haven't really had time to keep up with the forums and of course there is no comprehensive info out there on Dan. What has he been up too. Latest things that I bought were When All Is Said And Done and White Darkness. I know he has probably done millions of projects and other things and its hard to keep track of them. If anyone has some time, can you give me a run down of any project notable and worthy of downloading made by him or produced by him in recent couple of years.

Thanks a bunch, also if anyone can remind of the band he mastered a few albums for. I think I missed the latest one and I want to check it out.

Band that has a huge problem with god obviously Guy that growls, girl with pretty vocals...play I guess death metal with mix of techno/electronic influences. The name just alludes me.

The Sentenced / Kreator / At The Gates influence you guys list is really, really evident in the music.

On that note... you guys are really good! And Dan's vocals fit well on New Age Dawning, it doesn't just sound like OH LOOK DAN SWANO IS IN THE SONG.

I'll give more of the songs on MySpace a listen when I'm at the library later. =)

Thanks guys! Appreciated. I'm sure all you Dansters will love "Absolution" the ending track of the album as well as it has even more Dan. A lot more to be more precise. Haha!

I just posted a new update. I hope it's ok to post here as well. "New Age Dawns" was released as a digisingle and it's now available in many places selling those digital stuffs. You can find it for example in here: http://itunes.apple.com/fi/album/new...ign-mpt=uo%3D4

It's the song "the ghost she slept beside me" where Swanö's doing the clean vocals.

Is it a band or does it refer to the song?

I'm assuming that's a band, not the song.

Dan just finished mixing my other band, "These Are They" for release this year. Death Metal goodness with his KILLER production.

Dan is going to mix and master the upcoming album of Finnish MyGrain. The album will be selftitled, producer is Janne Joutsenniemi (Stone, SubUrban Tribe) who also produced for example Stam1na.


It's going to be their third album, and the band posted the first studio diary today:
http://mygrain2.blogspot.com/
"Howdy ho folks!

This is the day that everyone's been waiting for over two years now, the recordings of the third MyGrain album are about to start! We can tell you that we're surely not the ones who have been waiting for this the least. The last year and a half or so that we have been writing and putting the new songs together, hasn't been the easiest time for the band. As our sound has taken huge steps forward to more progressive and complex direction, it has meant that finding the last forms of the songs has been way more difficult than before. All this has taken a lot more effort than we could have imagined when the first chords were composed and we're relieved that the biggest work is now behind. All we have to do now is to try to play the hard shit we've been working with during this long period, ha! The forthcoming months will show us, whether we have trained enough or not.

So, what can we tell you about the new album at this point? The album won't be named at all - it will simply be "MyGrain" as we feel this is a new start for all of us. Above all, it is a new start musically, as we have a new awesome guitarist Mr. Downhill who has played a huge role in writing the new songs. The old fans don't have to lose their sleep though, because the comments on the demo versions have almost without exception been "this is truly something new, but sounds exactly like MyGrain." We ourselves are really excited about the new stuff cause it offers us and the listeners some challenges. Everything won't necessarily open up instantly, but the reward stands in the end. Where there is progressive touch, there's also catchy riffs and choruses as there's always been. Where there are songs that you can hear that are written with guitar in hand, there are riffs that you can hear their origins lie in keyboards. So there will be a lot of new and also familiar things to spot.

We have been very lucky to get a really professional crew to work with this time. As you may remember, we haven't had an actual "producer" on the previous albums, but this time we do. We've been honored to work with Janne Joutsenniemi, who you most likely know from Suburban Tribe and the legendary Finnish band Stone. As a producer, he has worked with bands like Stam1na, Ensiferum and Kiuas. Although we have always been very skeptical towards anyone else than ourselves touching the songs the six of us have written together (yes, on this modern era of technology we still make all the songs in our rehearsal room), this time we took the chance of making things a bit differently than before. I guess sometimes it's good for you to listen to the others as well when making decisions (greetings to Alec at Spinefarm!), because so far our collaboration with Janne has worked like a dream. Let's see how we all feel after the recordings, hehe!

We will also record the album differently than before. Orbit Dance and Signs of Existence were recorded and mixed at the same studio (Sound Supreme), only mastered at a different place (Finnvox). This time only the drums will be recorded in a studio (Seawolf) and for the rest of the recordings we have rented a place from Herttoniemi, Helsinki where we will build a studio and spend the rest of the summer recording everything else. This provides us an easygoing recording session: we will have more time and even save a couple of dimes at the same time.

The mixing and mastering will be handled at Unisound, Sweden by the legendary Dan Swanö. From behalf of myself I can say, that working with him feels surreal. I've been spending my years by listening to Edge of Sanity and the other bands he has had his fingers on (Katatonia, Opeth, Novembre, Diabolical Masquerade, Pain... to start with) - not forgetting Nightingale or the timeless Moontower solo album. Never could I have even dreamed that one day we will be working together. Lucky bastards are we!

I was supposed to write a short entry to welcome you to read our studio blog but well, I should know myself by now! ;-) The drums have now been assembled at a marine environment in Seawolf studios and tomorrow DJ will start hammering the first beats on the last chapter on this neverending story called "the third MyGrain album". He will take over from now on... And his entries won't surely be this long... Nighty night!

- Eve, on behalf of the other MyGrain dudes, my brothers in metal! "

[bold text made by me ]

Here is an early demo-teaser with some works for the album (no final versions or anything, just impressions)
(Video by Toni Salminen)

I think Dan is a great choice also because this time they seem to sound truly more progressive than before (before it was more some kind of Electro-Death-Metal).
I´m really curious about what is going to be the result
