Preparations are underway to begin collecting new samples from within the Orbethian sorcerers mind............

Experiments have begun on the 13th Orb project. An instrumental metal concept.

The time nears to begin saying goodbye to 2012 and all that it has given thus far!!!

Watch this space over the coming months troops

A storm is brewing...............

Just a small heads up.........

One and a bit tracks written so far ........ I appreciate its early days but after some thought and experimenting i'd say this record is probably going to be like a sort of old school(ish) instrumental metal concept thats easy(ish) listening with cool catchy solo's and drumming thats not too mental.

So far I reckon it sounds like a more linear version of 'Masters of the...........' with more structure and discipline.

Basically i'm going to attack this one with no outside influence and a relaxed approach (by relaxed i don't mean shite and lazy.....more fun, catchy and simple(ish)). Riffage and solo's with a nice Orbethian twist to say the least.........some cool guitar parts coming out so far anyhow!

hmmmmmm

does this make sense ? lol!

New snare sound to play with also....... one that hasn't been used yet........and I think i'm definitely going to call it 13th Orb...... if thats cool with you minions of the White Palace?

kewl!

Masters is my favourite Orbeth album, so this makes me happy in the pants area.

13th Orb sounds mystical and DS9ish.

tracks so far :

- 13th Orb
- Interstellar
- Planetoid Alpha

Basketball

I'm also contemplating vocals......... don't know yet.

If they do get into to the mix they will probably follow the Mechatronical style only more subtle.

I so read that as Planet of the Turtleoid.

I think I've watched too many dvd's of the original Turtles cartoon.

On that note ............ hows about some suggestions for a track title ?

I'm currently working on track 4 which has a thrashy(ish) theme to it. So suggestion for a track title would be kewl! (always nice to keep the troops involved)

Anyhow the inspiration is flowing nicely and the ideas are queued up in the Bijibrain for recording.........

I may do a short youpube promo vid when i'm about half way through recording.

All going well ........... for once (touch wood)

This is going to be a kick ass beginning to 2013 !!!





^^^
METARL ORBETHIAN FREEZER OF DEATH lol!

Oh and the new pickups sound FOOKIN AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!

More soon

Cool beans.

The wire to the clutch snapped, so I could only start the car by the brake. Typical french ideas.

a track or 2 inspired by the Inner realms of Earth would be schaweeet!

check this video, seriously best documentary on the true naughtiness behind the 3rd/4th Reich, then check the other links and the Inner Earth maps, makes complete sense! pirat

Nazi Inner Earth maps -

http://hollowplanet.blogspot.com/2011/07/wwii-german-maps-of-antarctic-entrance.html

Admiral Byrd's encounters with the naughty schatanic forces of the 3rd/4th Reich in Antarctica during the failed 'Operation Highjump' was redeemed by a more enlightening quest and the unexpected discovery of an ever-magical Orbethian palace! cheers

Cool,

Cheers for linking .......will check it out!

A little more news for you........

I've been recording these last few days and it would seem apparent that this album is definitely geared toward guitar sheddery than keyboard madness...... so to say its like 'Masters' may not be totally true......hmmmmmmm ....basically the keyboards are more subtle I think.......

This could be because the writing process is different on this record i.e. i'm writing the guitar parts before anything else, unlike 'Masters' where the keys were written before the guitars. This approach is definitely giving it a really rifftastic feel!

So far i've got four tracks down and they all sound amazing! really different from my previous works......BETTER ....much fookin better IMO...... in both composition and production so a double

\m/ \m/

is in order!

This is a kick ass mofo ........anyway i'm going to basically get a full instrumental built up and then add vox where appropriate later on to add the final cherry cherry to the Orbethian cake! (see what i did there)

Lawl!

Not really news i suppose........just me ranting as usual!

*Beer*

I'm excited to hear the new approach to writing with guitars being the foundational element + the new cabineto, bet this will be the best sounding/produced Orbeth album yet! cherry

You know those times when your driving along in your car or walking along and your listening to some music. Then you look out the window up at the clouds and a sick, epic, soul searching section of a song hits your ears? Well this album is full of those things!!!

I'm really struggling on deciding a track order as they are all so amazing! Believe troops! this is the best record to ever come out of the Mitsumind! rabbit rabbit rabbit

*Personal favourite - Riding The Ice Fields* (this might be track one).......hmmm

Another thing i've noticed is the tracks are LOOONG! like 8 minutes in some cases ....... this is like a metal soundtrack appearing from the borderlands of Orbethia! *borderlands - good track title*
