new t.v.o.w. album status!

from Tyler:

"I'm behind on mixing the material from Graham, but what I have sounds excellent. There is still a bit of retracking left to do, but the material so far is really coming along. While he's reticent to mention the stylistic changes, I can assure you this is more sludge oriented doom metal than the previous album or single. Definitely pretty cool.

The album does have a title: "obsidian steps into infinity", and that is an accurate representation of the sound."

'the olde dusty trail'

had paul over to help record some harmonica parts on a new song "the old dusty trail". i think they came out quite nicely. that will probably be the closing piece on the album "westward expansion"

speaking of which, finally got the artwork finished up. i guess it sums up the general concept.

and the album is almost finished, just reviewing the master files now. shouldn't be too long before it's available for download.

further delays

no, time does not stand still. due to outside delays of touring, moving, etc, the site launch has been delayed further into 2010. however, things are still moving forward, albeit slowly. a few further hurdles to climb over, and we'll be there. thanks for your patience...

still working...

Yes, contrary to what you might think, we are still cranking away. Putting together CD editions for most of the releases, locking down artwork, building the music player and shop...it all takes time, time that is increasingly scarce as 2009 starts to wind down. 

We hope to snap all the pieces together for an end-of-year launch, so stay tuned as always...

slow going on the new t.v.o.w. album

From Graham:

"graham here. just want to let people know that the new album is coming along really slow. i have about two hours or so worth of stuff recorded, and i need to go through and edit it and figure out what's good and what sucks. that translates to a lot of editing. so there may not be a record til much later this year, or maybe even next year. we'll see. keep it evil."

The new K-Ninja's album, 'Enter The Poontang Clan', is finally back from mastering. We're all very pleased with the results. As with many other solid.grey.sky.recordings, the mastering was performed by Corrosive Audio. We're sure it'll be blowing up speakers everywhere, very soon!
