well, its crunch time for getting the vocal demos done. which means, i gotta have all my lyrics finished. in my usual way, i had a bunch of half finished songs, and very few actually finished ones. but over the past few days i'm starting to wrap em up. now i've got only four songs left that need final lyrics. oddly, three of them are old 'no more kings' songs that we are reworking. 'god breathed', 'umbrella' and 'being green', (the hulk song).

i think we're gonna end up with six of our old songs on this album, with eight new songs.

well, we're about a month into pre-production of the album. we've got about 13 songs in various stages of completion. today we ran out and did a quick photo shoot for astonish's website. probably we'll use the photos for our myspace page too. two birds, one little stone.

one of the problems we're running into, is trying to revamp some of our older songs. in almost all cases, its the lyrics that need overhauling. but a few of the songs needed a bit of an update musically. we're really trying to push the songs in a more funk-groove direction. i'm excited about them. i'm getting anxious to record vocals.
