Album project coming along nicely 

Hi everyone, Vaughan here. I've been relatively quiet for the last few months but I have been plugging away on my current album project. Elias has started tracking his guitar parts and he has now recorded four songs. Tim and I have been trying to co-ordinate a time for him to come in and record his vocal parts. Long term supporters of Grave Forsaken will recall that Tim used to perform vocals on quite a few of our early songs. It will be great to have his voice on this album. Matt will also be contributing some vocal parts to the album a bit later on.

Production wise, this album is more in the style of our original EP, "Plugged Into The System" and "Fundamental Principles". All three of those releases were recorded with a very basic home studio setup. I really enjoy that simple approach to recording and this project will reflect that. Musically it reminds me of our first three albums with a bit of the rock vibe of "Plugged Into The System" and "Fundamental Principles" thrown in. For example Songs like  "One True Way", "I Think It's Time", "The Ruskin Arms" and "Calm In The Storm" would fit right into "Plugged Into The System". Other tracks like "Win The Day" and "Warriors Of The Cross" have more of a thrash vibe that fits with our heavier material. I think it's a good mix of everything I've done over the years.

I'll keep you updated as work progresses on the album.

Still working on the album 

Hi all, I've been steadily plugging away on the album I'm currently working on. Tonight I've been editing the track "One True Way". I have my guitar, Matt's bass and Tim's drums recorded so far. I'm going to focus in on finishing this track before continuing with the others nine tracks.

Last daily update before December and January break 

Hi all. Today will be my last daily update before taking a pause during December and January. I will still be posting during that time, just not every day. I have really an effort to post each day for many months now, I find it is very motivating and it helps to keep projects rolling. Tomorrow I'm planning to work on my solo project and I expect to make some decent progress. Elias has heard the material now so I will arrange a dedicated recording session with him, maybe even this weekend.

Thanks for following these daily updates. I'll post again soon!

God Bless and Rock On!

Catching up with Luke tonight 

Looking forward to catching up with Luke tonight. It's always good to have a chat about music, Star Wars and life! It's been a busy week so far so I haven't had much of a chance to work on my project for a couple of days. Hopefully I'll get a chance over the remainder of the week to get some more done.

God Bless and Rock On!
Vaughan

Tuesday update 

Just a reminder that I'm going to be pausing my daily updates and daily dose during December and January. December and January gets very busy at my work,  not to mention all the Christmas and new year activities. I will still provide updates, just not every day!

God Bless and Rock On!

Good jam with Elias 

I had a good jamming with Elias last night. I previewed my most of my solo project to him and we're going to get recording his parts very soon. By the time we had rehearsed some tracks it was getting too late to record actual takes. Still, it was a great time hanging out.

God Bless and Rock On!

Elias coming over tonight 

Elias is heading over tonight. We will jam through some material and I'm also hoping we can record some tracks for my solo project. It's always good to catch, so I'm looking forward to seeing what we get done.

God Bless and Rock On!

Got quite a bit done today 

We had a day at home today. My boys spent a long time in our backyard pool, so I sat down on my laptop and edited some tracks while they were swimming. I managed to work through quite a few tracks, picking the best takes that have been recorded. I continue t enjoy the process of working on this album.

God Bless and Rock On!

Working on "Win The Day" 

Today I've been editing the track "Win The Day". I have a few different bass takes that Matt did and I'm trying to work out the best one for the recording. I think I've settled on the one I'll use. Depending how far I get with this song, I might get a chance to work on another song later today. 

God Bless and Rock On!

Tidying up takes 

The next week or so will be dedicated to consolidating what I've recorded so far. I still have a number of songs where there are multiple takes to sort through. It is quite daunting as a whole project, but I plan to break it down into small bits, one riff at a time! Once the kids get off to bed, I plan to spend a bit of time working on it. It will definitely need to be a case a steady does it.

God Bless and Rock On!
Vaughan
