Work has begun on the next release.
The current song that I’m working on is slower than anything on Vultures, sadder, and much heavier. Following the advice of the United Kingdom Extreme Metal blog, I’ve started to rework the way I program drums, to get a clearer, wider, bigger sound, and one closer to a skilled drummer playing live drums. So far it’s working nicely, thank you. I won’t give you its working title until it changes. Sounds to me a little like Xasthur.
I’d like to thank everyone who’s downloaded, pirated, listened to or read about the album. I’m not sure who put the torrent up, but I’m seeding it so that hopefully you can get better speeds.
I thought after the exhausting effort of Vultures that I was going to leave it a couple of months before picking up the guitar again, but the temptation overtook last night and I started riffing. Can’t say that I’ve got overmuch right now, but the first riff is the hardest to write, and I’ll be back on it later this evening. I’ve been listening recently to a lot of Symphonic Black Metal, so I imagine the keys will be stepping forward more often than they did on Vultures.
