So we’ve started our first recording session. We all set up in my old home in the living room were there’s a lot of light coming in and space. During the next two weeks I’m staying here to create some new songs, invite some musicians to play with and record some new stuff. The first day was a blast, we’ve managed to rec 3 songs : Paying a song For you, Storyteller and This might do me good.
Playing a song was previously recorded but still needed a double bas and some swirling FX. the other two songs are still a work in progress. I still need to record the vocals and the gitares.
Thursday we’ll be recording one or two songs depending on the time we’ve got .
Some new musicians already came along for auditions with was very satisfactory. Some new ones are coming next week.
anyway her are some pics of the rec sessions.

Dillian 3d place Rockvonk competition
Saturday 27th was a nerve wrecking day for me and I think for all the contestents of the Rockvonk 2009 competition. Today would be decided who of the final 8 bands would win. “Amherst Avenue ” kicked of the night @ 20h and we were on for a good ride. Preforming second was Head Full of Flames followed by Aegis. Next Up was me, followed by Willow , Soldier six, Bad Cirkuz, and L’ame Buccale. Everyone played a verry good gig so I was a bit nervous if I would be selected as one of the final 3. And yes I was very fortunate to end on 3d place. Woooohooooo. Head Full of Flames came in 2nd and Willow took 1st prize. Both verry good band and verry cool musicians.
I would like to thank everyone who came to see us , supported me, cheered, applaused, listened, drank, smoked, talked, and was. Thank Youuuu
