Last week was truly brutal. Actually up to the point where I had a hard time taking in what I was hearing and seeing. Right now with a couple of days perspective, I'm happy to say it felt really good to listen to the mastered version of our upcoming album titled HFMC. The mixes and the mastering are very dynamic, powerful at times and sometimes it sounds just like a whisper. The sound has imho a 3 dimensional touch to it with great depth and separation that makes me really excited about it.
As we've been working on the video it strucked me, how do you pick a song that represents the album, when it's so diverse in styles, moods and dynamics? The answer is you can't! This album is really meant to be played from start to finish to get the best out of it. In other words, the video is more or less a tool to tell people we exist and we have a new album coming out. The artwork will look very different from our previous albums as it's handwritten and painted with watercolours, very cool and very "out of the box" (as usual when it comes to HFMC) if you ask me.
Even though we've been working our a...s off trying to get everything ready in time, I can now state that we unfortunately have passed the deadline for a release on february 13th 2015. I know that's tough for some of you who's been waiting forever for this album. Last week I had discussions with Glassville Records and we decided that it's even more important to do everything "right" (let the promotion guys do their job properly etc). I guess we're just talking a couple of weeks here and I hope you understand. I'll get back to you as soon as the new date is settled.
