27th and final day

This is it. The album is now ready. Only a couple of slight things to improve with the mixing but these will be done in no time. We're extremely happy with the quality of the record that Arttu once again made possible in studio Watercastle. Now it's time to relax a bit and just start waiting the release and your comments. Over and out.

Day 26 & 27

Today is the last day for the studio and we have tons of things to do. We noticed some crucial things that had to be corrected during the pause and now we're quite stressed to finish everything today. I think the last modifications have to be made when Arttu has time after today but let's see how this day goes. A long long Long day ahead of us. Wish us luck!

Day 25

Almost on the finish line, but not quite. Originally, this was supposed to be the last day of the sessions, but we saw several days in advance that it is better to stretch the schedule a bit. You don´t want to leave anything half-done because you´re in a hurry. So we booked two extra days, and take a little break now.

The final days are next week, 15. and 16.10. See you then!

Day 24

Sometimes these songs take one by surprise. I heard a completely mixed version of one particular song... and it was totally different than the unproduced raw version. Usually they just get enhanced, but this one had altered its form totally... In a good way. It was so much richer that it almost felt like a new song.

It´s nice to be surprised, sometimes.

Days 22 & 23

The weekend saw a couple of mixing days with not very special events. We are busy listening to differently mixed versions of the songs, and little changes are made here and there, but we seem to have the basic sound of the album in our hands now. The most hectic days of these sessions are over for us, and now it is more or less only the fine-tuning of the album that is left. But that, too, requires some time. There is much technical work.

Arttu is working long hours to make our wishes come true, sound-wise. Our hats are off for him.

Day 20

Yeah, we finally got to inform everyone about the album title, record company and release schedule. And you know what? The mixing just started and we have the first song almost totally ready. It is sounding totally killer! The next days will be much faster to work on because the first song is always the slowest one because so many different decisions need to be made according how everything should sound in general. More to come tomorrow!
