Dear Friends,

We have some very good news to announce today : the title of our forthcoming album was chosen, and we decided to reveal it right away. It is dedicated to people who follow misleading paths, misguided by the ones who love or hate or try to control them, or even sometimes by their own pride. We are pretty convinced that each and everyone of us can recognize him or herself in this situation one day or the other. Following this idea, we called this album :

BLIND ?


We are even happier to announce that the recording sessions will start on 21st Feb. 2011. The whole week (and more if needed) will be dedicated to drums. Other sessions will follow until spring. Mix and mastering should be done during summer. We expect to release BLIND ? late 2011.

In the mean time, we will play some gigs in France and Europe :
10/05/2011 Paris, La Scene Bastille
30/05/2011 Femme Metal Festival in Birmingham (UK)
sept. 2011 : 2 dates in Belgium to be confirmed
+ more to be confirmed soon.

Hard work done : placing all the mics on Nico's drum kit. Hey, he has 4 more cymbals than he had during our last recording for The Brink !!!

Oh, I just tried to do some preliminary drum mix... it's ... wow ! If you know a little of drums recording, you also know that you have to use 12-16 mics or more. Nevertheless, the most important thing is : it HAS to sound good with just ONE pair of mics. Listening to our work today, I think I could decently just use the overheads pair to make a great mix. I'm veeeeeeery happy !!!! :)

Hmm recording sounds complicated :/

I struggle just to manage to be able to record my own voice without mic overload/distortion.. and then I end up drowned in the mix.. :arg:

I don't envy the work it takes to get something recorded that sounds good LOL especially with drums. They always seem to be the one that comes out the weirdest. You either have this sound of too much distance/openness that you hear during concerts, but sounds weird on a recording... or it is TOO clean. O_o

Yep. It's too clean when the drums are sampled or triggered. This is the case with probably 80% of metal production... :?

Well, we didn't change our general style. We still use a lot of orchestra, maybe even more than in the previous one... but I think that this one is a bit more powerful. Maybe it's due to our new voice Clémentine ;)

Drums recording were great. We are in the process of recording guitars and bass right now. It will last a bit longer, because we have to do it very precisely, and sometimes, new ideas appear in the middle of the session, so we change some things on the fly.
