When can it be expected?

We say it's supposed to be totally finished before christmas... But that still leaves issues like how to make it available to the public. So sadly we can't say for sure... But my hopes are early 2004, like jan or feb.

Just back from rehearsal... We're working on learning the last songs to be recorded and tomorrow, wednesday, is vocal rec and that bit goes on throughout the entire weekend. Hopefully, we'll get a lot done this week on a vocal level...

It should be available to anyone... Worst case scenario is that you'll have to import it directly from us or something, but if everyone can't get it than there's no point, I think.

Album news: The fourth and last (!) drum recording session for this album has been booked for 1st-2nd november. This means that after that we'll have recorded all the song foundations that will be on this album, and what remains then is the layers and layers of guitars, basses, synths and vocals on those tracks (aaaw, should be pretty quick, right?!  ;D)... Right now we're recording vocals every day for the songs we already have foundations for (10). The lead vocals are finished for 4 of thse songs, and the harmonies on one of them.

EDIT: The album will have 14 or 13 songs. The new March version has been excluded (but might show up as a web page release instead).

Title: Re:So how far along is the album?
Post by: Gravehill on October 24, 2003, 07:57:21 pm
Nowhere on this planet is. Most people cannot find those beautifull places, 'cause they are blind. Most beautifull place on earth can be on your backyard, on your heart or in your beloved's heart - who knows? We must open our eyes and have new way to think and see things... Even that oh-so-gray work/school trip. There is unbelievable beauty on single flower, but we seldom go NEAR the flower, to inhale it's scent and to observe it closely. We walk the roads and seldom walk to forest or hills. We go there where everyone else likes to go... Be adventurous, explore! There is beauty near you, you just can't see it! Remove the reason and you will see.

Luleå is wonderfully beautiful in the winter... Right now, it's just below zero (that's celsius I'm talking about) and a gloomy snow mist is obscuring the distance .... It's dark outside but the lights from the city is reflecting off the heavy clouds right now, so it's not pitch black outside...

I just love it.

And to get back to topic. 6 of the songs are practically finished now, if post-production is disregarded. That's 6 our of 12 ... and we expect it to be something lie 7 tomorrow ... And hopefully 8 or 9 by the end of next week. Post production will commence in the beginning of november (mixing, adding, deleting, cutting, putting in weird noises everywhere etc) and the last drum recording session is booked for 1-2 november. If all goes well, this album _will_ be finished this year...

Note: Finished does not mean released. But we have a meating on Monday with someone who might be able to help us shed some light on the distribution issue. ...

Until next post... Peace, friends.  :)

Oh I'm so happy to hear that it might be ready this year! I hope that you find good way to distribute your records... When you find way, please, start taking "pre"-orders. That way you got some info about how many records will be sold on first phase (without any marketing or adds, that is)... After that you probably will sell some more, after records are spreading around and you got more publicity through it. It's so big thing to have first record done, you must feel really good about it?

Man, everytime I hear news about this record I feel like going totally out of my mind... Wintress might say what ever she wants, but on this thing I have NO patience at all

Hey

Album update. Since we finished recording the single last one of the drum foundations today, I feel it was time for an update.

All the drums are finished. No polishing yet, but that's true with everything so far. We have recorded the vocals for 7 of the songs and working on the 8th one. Guitars and basslines are added at a rate of maybe 2 songs a week, now... We do a little piece of vocals 5 days a week.

Post-production (mixing and all that) together with Henri (Cid Inc) begins this following week.

Sure... Here goes (in no particular order):

Attack Music (New and Improved (same song though))
Ninja (one of the first songs we ever made)
Blind Dog Pride (old, too, but not like ninja)
Super Steve (working title)
Hyperion (working title, maybe, dunno)
Killer Instinct
Player One (arcade part 2???)
Return To Snake Mountain
Throttle and Mask
InSiDi/ous (nerd karma for Eloj here)
Flagcarrier (a slow(er) song... Curious???  8) ...)
Dreadnaught (the song reflects the name)
Tempus Fugit
Machinae Prime (instrumental)

Flagcarrier. I bet that's going to be somekind of anthem for me...
Title: Re:So how far along is the album?
Post by: robert on November 03, 2003, 02:11:57 am
Flagcarrier is an acoustic song in 3/4 rhythm (i.e. waltz)... That's the one we're currently working on, vocal-wise...

Machinae Supremacy has never done an acoustic song before, although there are some acoustic guitar in a few songs, most obviously in Hubnester Inferno. So you can ONLY IMAGINE...  ;)
Title: Re:So how far along is the album?
Post by: Gravehill on November 03, 2003, 10:10:07 am
I'll bet that song lives up to it's name. And... Quite honestly, first time in my life I cannot imagine how Machinae play waltz would sound like. I think my reaction to that song might be quite paradoxal... I might scare a little first, laugh a lot first but eventually it might even become my favourite song. It sounds like so Machinae, so Machinae. To suprise and do something totally new. This is is going to be lots of FUN!

Ahh.. the album is farther along than I'd thought... I guess I got caught up in listening to all the music on the downloads page [which i've put on 2 cds... bouff - arcade on the first and origin to masquerade on the second].
Whatever it takes to get the album, I will get it, even if I have to import... whenever I get the chance to buy it.. [going into the air force]
But aside from that, I just feel the need to encourage you guys. What you've got so far is just so amazing... MaSu is almost all that hits my cd player now...
In 2005 I want to take a nice long two week trip through Norway/Sweden... It's a long way off from now but you make Luleå sound better than what I've read in travel books... Maybe I will get to harass you guys and get autographs on the will-be cd that will have come out by that time... Well either way I'd like to see you guys play live sometime, wherever you get to...
So be scared now, you've got all these obsessed fans...
Ah, well, I've done about enough MaSu ranting for one day...
Good luck on the CD, sounds like you're coming along quite well with it, and we're all looking forward to it ;-)

Update:
Some news... Four songs are in post-production and eight songs are finished, recordingwise. We think that now, so much is done that the rest of the songs will fall in one by one during december and then we'll be finished...

The song previously known as Deus Ex Machinae, and then Hyperion, is now again known as Deus Ex Machinae...  Until we change our minds again ;D

The songs that are in post-prod are Attack Music, Throttle and Mask, Killer Instinct and Player One (which is gonna blow you all away with its ph33rzum m4ssivenez!)...

Next on the conveyer belt are Deus, Flagcarrier (and ooh, is this one a beauty) and Return to snake mountain...

Hey folks!

I'm glad the album is coming up along great. I'm quite anxious to get my hands on the featured product. However, the idea of having a sneak-peek demo beforehand is quite appealing as well! Keep up the good work guys, you're making many fans across the world hungry.

Album update: We finished Ninja today, and the vocals for Insidious.

3 to go, people. 3 to go. We plan to have everything recorded before the holidays, which should be a pretty realistic goal, considering there are uhmfumftzentwelve days left and we've got 3 songs to record the vocals for... Last minute guitar details and such will be recorded during the holidays and when Henri gets back from up north (yes, there actually is something that's more north than luleå, although not much) we'll finish the post-production in january while struggling to get that distribution / master deal...

OK, then ... Update.

11 songs in post-production, 3 songs still not finished, vocals left on 2 of them ...

And we're doing some work on the Jets'N'Guns project meanwhile...

Working on the mixing etc on the 11 songs in post-prod while awaiting opportunity to record the last 2 vocal tracks ...

The reason why those two songs aren't done yet is because I (yes, I'll take the credit  ;D ) haven't finished the lyrics yet...   :-\

But I'm gonna ... Honest. I'll ask some of the IRC people to slap me around with a trout a bit perhaps...

It's a fairly old track ... it used to be on a demo CD they had, IIRC. I don't think it has ever been formally released, and thus lingered in a kind of "True Fan Identifier" state.

Album update: All vocals finished. 13 songs (except for one bassline) totally completed.

14th (the instrumental) song will be finished any day and post-production is under way.

Niiiiice... has the name of the album been descided yet?
Looking forward to that one almost as much as 14 new kick-ass tracks ::)

Awesome news, keep up the good work.

I just hope I can get ahold of the CD in Canada without paying a huge price, the last cd I ordered out of the country costed about $45 :-\

I've been lerking in these forums for a few months now but I was always lazy on registering. Been listening to you guys for about half a year now, I remember searching for hours on the web and IRC just trying to get cryosleep after I saw these forums and it was mentioned on here, more masu the better.

Update: guitars and bass is all that remains on the last song, Machinae Prime, and we're working through the songs that are finished, mixing and post-producing... Some are near FINAL, other's still lack some SWOSH and BOOM etc  ;D

We intend to be finished Feb 20th. One way or another.
Then, mastering and print, and then release, provided that we don't mess up our distro relations before then, hehe...

Also, a Discography page is being designed for the home page, and when that section is 'released' (added to the online site) the name of the album as well as the final song titles will also be released.

This is exciting! It's so close! So close! Our waiting is rewarded soon... Gotta tune my audio system ready so I can listen it in it's full glory. All this waiting is two sided-sword. Some pros and one cons:

+Enough time to do hone album and do it masterpiece
+Many new fans have joined forum
+Many speculations, rumours and fact have been released - lot's of discussion about album
+We have had opportunity to follow records "birth" from best places
+I been able to hone my virtues when waiting, especially patience.

-Waiting this long get's expectations for the album incredibly high. For me this is album is ONE I've waited most in my life - and it's LOT! Can it live up to that? I mean, it's brilliant, I know it in my heart but my expectations have rosen like rocket when I've heard what kind of sweet stuff it's loaded with! Are my expectations realistic anymore? Only one way to find solution - wait! I will listen record couple of times before I say anything about it... It's best to listen it first as it is with no expectations, then with heart, then with brain and then with soul. After that I can say something...

Anyhow, after "finish" there remains two things. Mastering and Print ... Before a release can happen.

But we plan to work as hard as possible to make those things happen fast... Mastering should be easy, but the printing won't happen until we've got some sort of deal established... I fear that the bureaucracy is what will take the longest...

But as an addon to the last update, it seems we're on schedule now, for once... 20th of febuary, or at least that weekend, all the songs should be completely and totally finished.

Serial number seems like an good idea. I mean if there is "special edition" of their CD for some couple hundreds first ones to order album or something... Like a little gift for those who have loyally waited. And there were only one "special edition" CD per order so no-one get the "fun" idea to order 10 or more CD's to and then sell them for 5000 € per CD after 5 years... ;D

Though autographed CD would be cool too! On the other hand serial number printing is not very easy and cheap solution... What band thinks about CLU's idea?
Title: Re:So how far along is the album?
Post by: chompy on February 21, 2004, 12:12:41 am
The serial number to be in binary. So the first one would look like this 0000001(1)and the last one would look like this 11111111(255). So there would be 256 different numbers available, note 0 and 255 is there but shouldn't be used due to the network mask and broadcast address. So 254 usable/sellable copies. And MaSu woulc keep coppies 0 and 255.

Ok, additional update ....

Booklet, cover graphics, cd image etc (the artwork) has been totally completed, producing a booklet of 16 pages (tried 12, but too much lyrics, wouldn't fit)...

We've negotiated with the label the right to release 2 full songs in full quality etc from the album. They suggested clips / samples, we suggested nononono full songs full songs full songs...

The mastering will take place on friday, if no delays occur ... And after that, the material goes to england for album printing ... Expect three weeks for the printing to be completed... Now, this is a happy scenario, but perhaps it's even possible that this release will be in April.

Let's hope.

Think about it. .. How many albums can you buy in your local store that are not seen on MTV or played in similar medias? Not many... The reason the album won't be found everywhere is that it's not released in millions of copies like your basic britney or rancid album...

Yes, but that's not what I meant. It's just that a statement beginning with "let's just say that" indicates that there's something about the whole thing not to be revealed yet. Like someone wants to keep certain things secret for now. Not that this has to be a bad thing though..

Will it be availiable in the UK?, can I go and raid the printing plant for copies?

So much anticipation

I'm thinking UK is the most likely place it'll be found in stores, or at least where it should be found in stores first, since the label MBD is located in the UK.

I also hope that the album will be available through Amazon and a few similar outlets... :)

Lomion, sorry for misunderstand you...  :)

YAY!!!

At last - a good reason for living in the UK!

Now tell us Robert, where are MBD located in the UK? And if you anything like Sheffield or Manchester I will run out of the house right now, catch a bus and picket line the building for no better reason.

Oh yea by the way (btw) look at my signature, I've updated it :D
That made me think of the approx 1 million years it took for our ancestors to develop the all in all flintstone tool to construct an axe of it too...terrifying how slow it takes for ppl to see beyond...gaaahhh...depressing thoughts...

Post by: sobella_science on March 08, 2004, 09:34:59 pm
Ok, additional update ....

Booklet, cover graphics, cd image etc (the artwork) has been totally completed, producing a booklet of 16 pages (tried 12, but too much lyrics, wouldn't fit)...

We've negotiated with the label the right to release 2 full songs in full quality etc from the album. They suggested clips / samples, we suggested nononono full songs full songs full songs...

The mastering will take place on friday, if no delays occur ... And after that, the material goes to england for album printing ... Expect three weeks for the printing to be completed... Now, this is a happy scenario, but perhaps it's even possible that this release will be in April.

Let's hope.

kewl, I want to live in the UK when it is winter here to get the CD when it comes out. Today it is 33c, which is nice. What is the mean temperature of that of the UK in summer???? I wonder is MaSu will preform a gig outside of the shop to promote the release of the CD.

And never ever release samples/clips, I really hate snipped songs! They never do the music justice anyway.

Neil interviewed us for a webzine a long time ago, I guess that's how he knew about us. To answer your question though, he found us, not the other way around. The offer he put on the table was really 'liberal' and non-sellout:ish, we felt, so after some consideration we agreed it was a really great way to release this album.

Anything else you wanna know about Neil and his business I guess he'll have to answer. All I know is that it's an 'independent' label, small and free. I doubt it'll be a problem for the distro though, since 1) the album will be available on the internet for everyone and 2) Neil seems like a capable guy and will probably not have any trouble to get this album out into a lot of stores and such as well.

I cbf typing it as an e-mail format, I'll also pm you with the details. The CD stores listed there are the main ones that I know of in Australia. I'm sure Tripple may be able to help you out, same with 3D world. If any of them do, tell us about it :D

CD store - Sanity (http://www.sanity.com.au)
CD store - HMV (http://www.hmv.com.au/v4/home/welcome.asp)
Nation wide Radio Station - Tripple J (http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/)

Hm.. there's this Metal store in Hamburg, Germany which happens to be a Metal label of the same name: Remedy Records (http://www.remedyrecords.de/). Since they also sell stuff like Punk and general 'Hardcore' they might be interested in Machinae CDs. I got to know of them when they started to publish albums of a Power Metal band called Airborn which also has a "Turrican" inspired song called "The Hero". Now, do we all see the parallels? ;)

The store seems like a place where the focus is on quality music and not the mass suitability thereof. Might be worth a look.
