Currently we have finished recording all drums, rhythm guitars and bass guitars. Furthermore, we have laid down some additional guitars, lead guitars and synths. We have also started recording vocals on a few tracks. Piece by piece the songs start taking their final form and we are really pleased by how everything sounds so far!
