    Hi Guys--
    I'm smack in the middle of recording vocals for the last (yes, LAST) song on the album. It's one of the longer ones, so there are a lot of vocals to do, but I can't believe that (Lord-willing) I'll be done with all the vocals in a couple of weeks. After that, just some final touches (keyboards, a few guitar solos and lead parts, etc.), and then it will be time for the final mixes. The "Martyr" mix came out quite good, so it's basically just a matter of working the other songs into that mold, sonically.
    This song I'm singing now is pretty challenging; not so much from a technical point of view (high parts, etc.), but it tells a story, so I have to do a lot of self-producing to get the right character and mood across in the vocals, which involves a lot of trial and error. My throat feels rough this morning, but it's coming out OK so far.
    Anyway, so that's where we're at. :headbang:

    Oh yeah, I don't want to get too excited, but we have one that's very interested and just waiting on me to finish. I hope it works out, because it will be a HUGE boost for us!

    That is awesome news! So how much longer do you think until you'll have something you can present them with?

    Well, if you're talking about a huge boost for you in the US, the biggest metal labels I can think of are nuclear blast, century, and metal blade. I'm sure you can't disclose that at this point, though :D We can't wait to hear it.

    Finished the last of the vocals today.:)

    Probably around 2 more weeks of various overdubs (keyboards, guitar solos, etc.), and the whole thing will be done (Lord-willing) and ready for the final mixes. :OMG:

    Any chance of a video glimpse into your mixing process and decisions, similar to the choir recording one...?

    Sure, I'm sure I can get some footage. Anything for the man who consistently makes us look good in pictures. :)
