”The Next Era”
2007 Most of the year was spent rehearsing the new material for the next album as well as looking for a new singer. Quite a few auditioned out but no one was hired. It also took some time to get a new engineer for the studio, finally during the fall Henrik Olsson took that position.
2008 The first half of the year was spent in the studio and all the drums and the bass for the next album was finally recorded. Sadly, partly due to some unfortunate personal situations for all the remaining members in the band, things slowed down quite a bit during the fall. Unfortunately the recording of the guitars was delayed.
2009 The first half of the year Michael recorded all the rhythm guitars and then it was quite a long period of waiting for some of the personnel situations to work themselves out so that the recording of the album could commence. After a long band meeting in the summer Michael finally started to record the harmony, lead and additional guitars. It sounds very good so far…
