Thought I'll post a little update on our main site as well about what's going on with Amoral right now. With FB and Twitter getting all the love these days, it's easy to forget the band even has such a thing as an Official Website...
Anyway: The album is ready! Recorded, mixed, mixed some more, mastered, tweaked, mastered some more, done! We've had the album in our hands for a couple of weeks now, and let me just say it sounds GOOD. Been playing it through everything from studio monitors to ipod headphones, car stereos to huge club PA systems, and I could not be happier with the end result. This thing sounds huge! Janne Saksa and Svante Forsbäck have once again done a stellar job with the mixing and mastering. Can't wait to get it out for all of you to have a listen and let us know what you think of it.
Right now we're working on... well, pretty much all the things that need to be worked on after the music is in the can. The album artwork is almost done, and from what I've seen it's going to be beautiful! Our longtime friend Aki Siltala is hard at work getting it perfect as we speak. Aki is the man responsible for the Decrowning and Reptile Ride artwork, as well as the legendary (!?) Amoral skull logo, so it's good to have him involved yet again.
Other stuff to keep us busy while waiting for all the business hassle and record label stuff to be worked out for the release: location scouting and brainstorming with Valtteri "Wally Balls" Hirvonen for the next photo shoot, arguing about which songs to include in future setlists (we now have six albums to choose songs from, making it harder and harder) and then actually practicing them (both the new songs - which are a bitch to play btw - and the old songs we haven't touched in years).
No release date has yet been set, but we're aiming for an end of the year release. We'll keep you updated.
The promised first taste of new music is coming soon, so hang on tight and watch this space! Or FB. Or Twitter. Or Myspace. Well, maybe not Myspace...
