Alright y’all, I’ve got one more little bass tracking video for you, and then (as previously advertized) the stage is Johan’s for a while. So until you get to ink your teeth into the fat guitars, here is some more bass for you.

Hey peeps,
Here is another (short) clip for ya.

I have another one that is a bit longer that I just gotta transfer and I’ll share that with you in maybe a couple of days. In the meantime check out a little mellow verse, which is from another song than what I shared the other day.

Cheers,
AndreasB

Friends, it’s not much, but I assume you’d rather get something than just wait some more, am I right?

Anyway, more stuff on the way the next couple of days. And after that it is time for guitar madness!

Peace!

"It’s on!!"

Stefan’s studio check in!

Hi folks!

Stefan checking in from the studio, as promised. So, I spent the day in recording mode yesterday. Huge fun! My kit is set up and fine tuned just the way I want it and my drum sound is killer right off the bat!

We went about this a little differently than what I´m used to, as Johan played along live as opposed to the conventional way of having a pre recorded “rough” guitar track. This gives the session a live feel which I really appreciate. I completed one song already and got started on another, which I´ll finish tomorrow. Knowing the level of drumming on the previous SW releases, I´m really coming in to this well prepared… and judging by how smoothly things have run so far and how supportive the guys have been, I feel quite confident that I´ll deliver!

The plan is also to shoot some footage of upcoming recordings to share with you guys. For the gear nerds (I know I am one:) out there I also plan to make a gear walkthrough vid of my Tama/Istanbul Mehmet setup, giving my views on the percussive “landscape” I create music with..

Thanks for all your support over these three years, friends! It has meant the world to me!

Stay tuned!

Update!

Hi Everybody!

AndreasB here checking in from the studio. Maybe you saw Stefan setting up the drums a couple of days ago, so I thought I’d drop a little longer report to let you al in on what’s going on.

As you know this year will finally see the recording of a Seventh Wonder DVD, something people have been on us about for *years*. We are thrilled to be able to bring you this, but in order to do it well, it will inevitably push back the album a little bit further. However, we decided we can’t let you guys be without new music very much longer so here’s the deal; -the studio is now set up for real and we started today to record new music! The plan is also to very soon, during the spring, record and hopefully release a brand new video and release one or two tracks that we will record right now.

We hope that you will follow the progress here on Facebook as we see new material come to life and watch Stefan Norgren lay down his first proper recording behind the SW kit.

Today we were off to a flying start -but I’ll let Stefan share his experience with you from his perspetive…

Thanks for tuning in and sticking by us. I believe the new tracks will be smoking and you can bet we will bring the new songs to the stage as soon as we can!

So -Bring it on!!!

Here’s a little update from Andreas:


“Wrapped up a new song in the studio. It is pretty short for being us, and it is gonna be interesting to see how it all ends up sounding in the end.
Probably we will have finished yet another one by next week. Things are moving along nicely again.”
