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…..

Mightiest of Hails,

It has been sometime since my last update; due to a rather eventful Summer with heavy focus now laying upon my other project. The studio has seen much work as of late, with regards to new Maglor material, updates, composing and mixing. The Gallery has also been updated with several new photos.

The 2007 Instrumental EP “Elder Tales” has also been uploaded to Bandcamp and is now available via digital download at a “Name Your Price” option.

I am hoping within the next months to slowly work on some long awaited studio upgrades, as well as gradually switching over DAWs (Pro Tools to Reaper) which I have discovered has many better additions. The learning curve may take some time, but I’m hoping to have everything up and running smoothly as soon as I can.

Dark Cries,

“From Forgotten Pagan Realms” is finally available for purchase through the online music store, Bandcamp. The entire album is available to download for $6 CAD or individual tracks can also be downloaded separately. Several reasons for the rather large price difference between hard copy’s and the digital offer’s are due to covering shipping costs, as well as the digital download option not including the album artwork, booklet and lyrics. All digital tracks are available in high quality WAV format. Visit the Market section for links to both purchasing options.

In addition to this, several other album reviews have since been written, and the Gallery should soon see some more photo additions within the days to come.
