This is the backyard of the studio – amazingly beautiful
I couldn’t sleep tonight
I had all kind of thoughts in my head, a lot of them was about the album and the songs. Yesterday I was back in our rehearsalroom to work with melodies before the vocal recordings who maybe starts on wednesday. All songs and lyrics are not finished yet even if the recordings have started, but that is nothing new it has been like that every time we have recorded before.
I remember writing the second verse of “Damaged generation” (Shine) in the studio between takes, and i wrote the lyrics of “when my days are over” (DTRIS) on the plane to England where we recorded the vocals for Die to rise…
I work well under pressure.
But i can’t help being a bit nervouse, a lot of the new lyrics is from an other angle then I use to write and I’m not sure if I’m happy yet with some of the lyrics that we have.
And for one song we still have trouble finding the right melody for the chorus.
when I was in the rehearsalroom yesterday i came up with an new idea for that chorus, and i think I like it, and when I came home last night I listened to all of the songs again and i realized that this album have a lot of potential. There are some really great songs, and i just want to be sure that the lyrics are as great as the songs.
But all night I’ve had the new chorus in my head, and that is a good sign, I think. Today the other guys will listen to it. I hope they like it, otherwise it is back to the writingdesk again =)
The last two days in the studio have been all about the guitars.
I was only there in the beginning when we decided what kind of sound there will be on the guitars. We’re recording guitars on two amps simultanously and It will sound heavy, crispy, twangy,hard and brutal at the same time 🙂 It will be great!
Calle and Davìd have been working hard in the studio, Micke is on a course with his job so he have to set all his guitars next week.
We are halfway trough the recordingdays (not counting mixing) and everything is following schedule, everything is alright and sounds great…
I should be able to sleep….
