Cover Art on the Way

So after a big set of ordeals, Tristan Tait (www.tristantait.net) is locked into to do our cover art which will be a beautiful 4 panel digipak. Adam Underwood helped us with our photos too and they’re looking sick.

Can’t wait to share Nebulae with you!

Nebulae is Recorded!

Woohoo!!! The album is fully recorded. I am very excited to let you know that mixing should be finished in the next week too! To celebrate this news, we are proud to share a video that my friend Robert Medina (known best for his 3d work with Dream Theater) has helped us to put together the theatrical trailer for ‘Nebulae’. The song featured in this video is entitled ‘Before’ and it is the first track on our album.

This album is the result of our (Dougie, Mitch, Jess and Phill) hard work and us alone with all of us writing more stuff together than ever before and with full creative control in the production and writing of this, I am so proud of the work we have done and personally have enjoyed working with this caliber of musicianship so much.

I present to you ‘Nebulae’ and I promise you all more info as soon as we can. Please share this video with everyone you know who may enjoy this. We all will be.

So we’re balls deep into the recording process but we’re still looking for a drummer to lay down the fat grooves. For now, it’s Superior Drummer 2 holding down the fort but we have our eye on a few players (one of whom we’re really hoping may be interested)

The tracklisting for Nebulae EP is as follows with rough track times:

1. Freedom (3:05)
2. Lust (4:56)
3. Loss (4:30)
4. Hope (5:27)
5. Promise (3:55)
6. Strength (7:25)

I guess that’s an appromixate runtime of about 30 minutes so it’s a decently weight EP lengthwise and definitely song wise. The stuff on here ranges from Periphery/Circles type grooves, to a Steely Dan melodic palette with the catchiness of Dokken and Voyager at times. As per usual there are many lovely guitar harmonies played by Mitch and I (which is probably some of the stuff we are most proud of as songwriting partners). The bass definitely holds down the low end a lot more than before and the rhythm section is really that this time and in honesty there are less Chris Squire melodic excursions (even though Chris is one of my favourite bass players for that very reason) when compared with Synthetic.

Lead vocals are done on Freedom, Lust, Loss, Hope, Promise but still waiting for the first lyrical contribution from Mr Eltakchi on Strength.

All the guide backing vocals are done and there are some beautiful choral style vocals that seem to highlight our group singing. I actually can’t wait for people to hear this.

From our first experiment with gang vocals on ‘Otherworldly’ from the Haunting Me! single, we’ve incorporated it into a few songs on this EP and any fans wanting to have their voice on our recordings should contact us at heminamusic@gmail.com for more details.

There are a lot of sequenced arpeggiators and filtered synth stuff on these tracks which is likely to be a big part of our sound in the future which I think adds such a cool amount of momentum to the tracks.

One of the other things people might note is that there are some real strong choruses this time in our music and this “pop sensibility”, which I know is a dreaded concept for a lot of progheads has really given our music Strength (pun intended heartilty, lol). These songs are all also built to be played live and we look forward to getting them all down so you can groove your collective asses off to this stuff.

Nebulae is on its way and it’s heavy and melodic as fo. Hoping to have all tracking (except drums) done by the end of March and hopefully you’ll see us back on the live scene later this year. We’re all aching to get on stage and share this magic with you!
