Timo T

New guitar player, and future plans

Aug 22, 2008



We have some good news. Earlier this summer, Timo K, Jens and Lauri got together with a guitar player in a forest cottage in west Finland and wrote and arranged some songs. It went extremely well, and we are very happy with the material, the direction, and the general vibe in the band.

We now have over 15 songs written and demoed already, but probably not all of these will make it to the actual album.

We are happy to confirm that our new guitar player is Matias Kupiainen. He was the only guy we even considered seriously. This interesting fellow was born May 11, 1983 and is a native of Helsinki, Finland. You can find some information and pictures on his myspace page which is here ».

Here is a video, there are more on youtube:

Next week, Jörg and Jens will come to Finland as we have booked three weeks of rehearsals and recordings in another cottage. We will then work more intensely on the songs in a real band rehearsal type of situation. Also there is a very good sauna in this place.

We will try to blog a little bit about the progress of the recording and other things. The official band blog can be found here ».

In the forum you can see some information regarding the songs, some working titles etc, and some more pictures, and also discuss this.
