Aight, some info on the next album (after RRE), if we ever get there (I mean, if this signing now proves NOT to be the end of the universe)... But be advised this album won't be released tomorrow... It'll be a while before this one is out.
... Let's see... We've got a bunch of songs that are half-finished - we've made a lot of stuff for them, but they still don't fit together well and lack parts, or lyrics, or / and / etc...
But we've got like 15 almost-songs, and plan to make 10-12 of them into the third album... As you know, there'll be a remake (a +vocals = "real" song version) of Flight of The Toyota on the album. One song, called "Dark City", which can be heard a teeny bit from in Prelude To Empire, is a song about our home town, Luleå, more or less.
There might be some vocoded stuff on it (like in the intro to Fighters From Ninne), and there might even be another "real" ballad this time (like Flagcarrier... Ronin and Reanimator don't count as ballads, imo). The reason I say "might" a lot is because we don't know yet if we'll finish all songs, or if we'll put them on this album or site-release them, or push them onward to the album after the next one... You get my point.
We have decided we want a "dryer" sound on our third album. That means basically less effects on everything, less reverbs, delays and such effects, and a closer, in-your-face dryness to guitars, drums, vocals... the works. This sound may make some songs less "epic" than on Redeemer, but what they lose there will be gained by intensity and attitude.
Overall, the album might be a wee bit softer than Redeemer when it comes to the song material. But that is something that's hard to predict before the songs have been properly recorded.
