Band Camp report, March 2009

Written by Herra Paalanen on Sunday, March 15th, 2009


Right, that’s another Band Camp done. Tired reporting follows.

First order of business: The master for the split vinyl has now — finally — been handed off to the boys at Skithund Records, and hence we once again broke out the bubbly.



We’ll keep you posted on possible release dates and what have you.

More on this front: We’ll put the raw tracks for a couple of the new songs online sometime next week, so if you feel like cooking up a remix, feel free! We’d seriously love to hear what you come up with, and we’ll be giving out some free swag for the ones that really strike our fancy. More on this as the tracks go live, but heads up!

Second order of business: New material! This was a surprisingly productive session and we were able to get a cover song into shape in pretty much the first sitting, and it should be a blast at shows in the future.

We also sunk our teeth into an entirely new Älymystö tune. Herra Haapanen presented us with some new (or is the word “fresh”?) beats, 30 minutes later we’d written and cut the first tracks on bass and guitar, another 10 minutes later Herra Honkonen was done with the lyrics, another hour and we had the chorus written and arranged, and at the end of the evening, the vocals were laid down. This may not sound exceptional, but rest assured, this is not how we usually do this stuff.

Not only that, but the song is really nice FUCKING AWESOME. I know having an attack of fanboyitis on your own material is sort of incestuous, but HOLY HELL YOU GUYS.

That’s it from us for tonight. This shit is hard work, and so I’ll be following the example of Herra Eskola. See you all next week with the new developments!

  1. Fresh.

    btw, olihan se lystiä vaikka välillä kiukuttikin :).

  2. I’ve been waiting for a new Älymystö release pretty much right after “Atomgrad”, or even a re-release of “Ontto seurakunta”, but now you fuckers go and release a vinyl!
    What on earth am I going to do with disc that won’t fit my CD-player?
    I hope you plan to sell it in CD or even mp3 format as well.

  3. emanon – Sorry for the late reply, your message went past our eyes for some reason. But yes, rest assured – the new release will definitely be made available in other forms as a vinyl also.

  4. Hi, this is a great site, and very well thought out and well written.

    Best Regards and Best of Luck
