A lot of focus and energy went into practicing and preparing to do a Hughes & Kettner TriAmp demo at FME Metal Expo in Helsinki. I was invited there by F-musiikki, the Finnish distributor. For this demo I actually animated a full Mr. Fastfinger character animation for a new song called Thunderpantz. That was a lot of work. But I thought it’s worth it because it is something I can definetly re-use for something fun in the future. I think I want to do a music/promo video utilising the material. Have some cool ideas of attempting to mix cartoon and real video band members together.
It also took some work to actually master all the material I wanted to do live. Thunderpantz I’ve done two times earlier live. But this time I focused a little bit more to make it happen more smoother. And the Unravel, one of my favourite new tracks was quite hard one to master actually. You will understand when you hear it. It’s always another thing to record stuff and then actually learn to play the whole thing in one go. But feels good that I can actually play this shit now :) Yes I can!
Lately the album has progressed a little bit slower. But now there will be change to focus more on it. Have loads raw ideas and now I will start composing the rest of the album.
