At long last….a release date has finally been set for Maglor’s upcoming full-length debut “Call of the Forest” – June 9th!!
Maglor has been working extremely hard in the studio over the past several months, bringing together this near-hour long epic which shall see the light of day in the next several weeks. Additionally, a second album preview has been put together; featuring some extended clips from the last medley, as well as some brand new sections.
I have been focusing heavily on Maglor over the last while….both in and out of the studio. However, within the coming months – I shall again return my gaze to Eldensky; and thus resume the creation of, finally…some new Eldensky material.
Several site updates have taken place; mainly script editing and modifying ~ I have also added in a new “Legends” section to the site; which holds all the lyrics found on “FFPR.”
Relentless final mixing and mastering work on the upcoming Maglor album “Call of the Forest” has been underway at Sounds of the Land Studio’s over the past several weeks; and a short 3 minuet preview medley has been released on Maglor’s homesite and Soundcloud.
We are getting ever closer to completely finalizing the album….watch for release date info within the next several weeks on the various Maglor pages…
Once this album has seen the light of day….my focus will then turn to re-learning a new DAW – as I make the shift from Pro Tools to Reaper. There may be some small overhauls/upgrades within the studio, and ultimately…work on brand new Eldensky material can eventually commence.
Another review has been written on “From Forgotten Pagan Realms” courtesy of Legion at Metal Made in Canada. Many thanks and pints raised to Legion for the kind words, and support! A link to the review can be found on the sidebar…
In other news; cover art and track info for the upcoming Maglor release: “Call of the Forest” has been unveiled on our homesite. Check it out! Work on vocal tracking continues, with progress slowly being made. This should continue for another several weeks at most; however, a release date is yet to be decided.
Hails from the studio,
Recently, Sounds of the Land Studio’s has undergone a small but significant upgrade. I have switched over to Window’s 7 and thus had to reinstall all of my music production software (a rather grueling process…). This however has led to an overall smoother running studio and has also allowed me to upgrade my RAM (much better for numerous memory intensive production programs as you can imagine).
Aside from this….much work and effort has presently been focused on the completion of the still unrevealed, upcoming Maglor release – set for (hopefully) sometime within the next several months. Production has been delayed several times due to all members needing to fulfill other important commitments, as well as being simply; ‘away’ from the studio. That being said, recording of ALL instruments has been finally completed, and the overall layout, album art, and design is being finalized. This ultimately leaves only the vocals, followed by some heavy mixing and mastering to bring it all together. This has indeed been a rather long quest; nevertheless, great progress has thus been made since the beginning, and we are so far very pleased with how the album is turning out.
More posts shall follow ~ with a possible revealing of the album name/art/track listing in the near future…..
Both albums are now available via digital download Here. Hard-copies of “FFPR” are still very much available Here.
Small site updates have taken place, and several new photos have also been added to the Gallery.
