The CD is almost half done... argh!

first off, when going into a professional recording situation, it really pays to be well rehearsed on your material and have your shit wired tight... we've been practicing this material intensly for 3 months, 5 days a week. i can play it in my sleep... literally!!! ...because i have! (DON'T ASK! LOL!)

ok, here's the progress report thus far:

though the engineer's equiptment is state of the art... we are doing things old school, for best results. ie: computers don't touch the arrangements, structures or instrument playing... they are only used for storing the work, keeping track of where we're at and effects packages we don't happen to have but desire to have on a song's track.

saturday we started recording at 1030am... got 2 songs done all the way through track by track by track, only needing mixing and mastering. work stopped around 7pm.

sunday, started recording at 11am... got 2 songs done all the way through track by track by track, only needing mixing and mastering. layed down 3 more songs as basic reference tracks, ready for track by track rebuild. work stopped around 7pm.

the album will have 9 songs and will be around 55 minutes long plus or minus... we're calling it "The Brutality of Reality" ...and it will be a BRUTAL onslaught on one's listening sensibilities indeed heheh!

at the pace we are going at, we'll have everything but the mixing and mastering done by sunday of next week. then we'll outsource it for post production mixing and mastering, copying, packaging (i already have the art done), and then... we start marketing it!

i won't be selling it off this site obviously, and there will be samples on the band's website too soon enough as well.

i'm exhausted but i'm also excited as all hell too!! (damned daylight savings time throws me off for days!)

this is more fun than running around raising hell all over the country with Trav too! ...almost hehe!

yes ttigeratty... we already have it copywrited hell, even the crap we'll never play out or release is copywrited... hehe! never know when someone needs a song to buy eh?

photo icon is the latest promo shot of the band.

Hey bro, this is your drummer speaking....
You did a great job on those guitar solos, this past weekend during the recording session.
I think "Wicked" is our best song right now.
Hope all goes well fine tuning the songs before I arrive Friday.
So, where are all the "Metal Maidens" who hang with you on your blog?

Hey Sorce, Naughty Blonde was telling me John's pic is still up, but I do not see it. I am having her verify what link she went to. I will double check the site again too.
Thank God, there wasnt a picture of Bill, she thought was me!
So the vocals came outgood on Mark of the Wolf?
By the way, what songs are we recording this weekend?
Oh..."Naughty Blonde" is my "first" official inductee into the Savage Jack "Metal Maiden" club.

songs for this weekend are: The Wicked, Cruel & Pointless (or Sour Ground if C&P doesn't work well), As Paris Burns, and 2 others to be named...

I plan on using double bass drums for all 3 of those songs. Especially, since I didnt for "C&P".
I wrote a song called "Metal Maidens"...
