    Hi All--
    Well, we have one song totally done, and plan to record the next batch of 6 probably starting next week (first we have a little more construction work to do in the studio, and Seth is out of town this week anyway). We'll check into this thread and let you know how it's coming, and we'll try to post some pictures and video as we go along, too.

    I'm excited!

    Here's a short video of Shawn messing around on the drums in the studio; he's da man. Seth is back in town, so we should rehearse this week and start recording next week as far as I know. :Spin:

    Started recording some guitar tracks last night for a cover song we're doing.
    And no, I'm not going to reveal what it is yet... ;)

    I bet it's a cover of Veni Domine. Please! That'd be awesome!

    I hope it's no Stryper cover. Almost every Christan metal band has one. I fear Theocracy will soon have, too.

    Rest easy, all guesses are wrong so far. But that's all I'm sayin'.

    I'm was really stunned when I first heard the serpents kiss. I first heard from Theocracy when I was listening to a cool christian metal internet radio; TriRock (www.classicgod.com/trirock.htm) I requested some more songs of Theocracy, read a review on the CD and found out that you recorded everything yourself!!! Amazing. I'm gonna buy the CD and I'm really looking forward to your new CD.

    Good luck recording!!

    Can we continue guessing? Is it a song from Dream Theater?

    Sure you can keep guessing, but I won't tell you if you're right or wrong because someone might eventually guess it. :)
    BTW, I meant to say before that there's not going to be a cover song on the album; we're just recording it for fun and maybe to use as a bonus track or something.

    Today (Saturday) was the day we were supposed to start the main tracking for the next batch of songs, but there was an issue with a piece of gear I was supposed to get last Tuesday and it hasn't been straightened out yet. :( So that's pretty disappointing and very frustrating. But, at least we're taking this opportunity to upgrade the studio computer to get it running super smooth and fast (thanks to our bass player extraordinaire/computer genius Seth Filkins), so hopefully once we start we won't have any problems.

    I'll keep you all posted.

    Webpoacher, thanks for the kind words. We really appreciate the compliments and well-wishes.
