Ikonators rehearsing the new songs.


So now you see our rehearsal space. There are few other bands in the same room too so we don't own all the stuff you see in the video... haha. Matti could not join us today but he should be with us tomorrow when we start working with the song called Insecurity. I have made a home demo version of the song and tomorrow will Ikonize the arrangement. Let´s see how it will sound tomorrow.   Hopefully better than the songs we played today....

Moi dudes!



  Happy Birthday Simon!!! 
  You are the coolest.


Hi everybody! It's been quiet here in the blog lately because we have time off from the studio. We have now decided seven song we will record in the next sessions and they are:

Insecurity
Mercy Kiss
Sixty Seconds
Lullaby
Faith
Mission
Between Light And Nowhere

So we will record 12 songs for the album and I guess ten will end up on the final album and two
are going to be b-sides of the singles. We will see how it goes in the end, but this is the great plan a.
I try to remember to take camera or this MacBook with to our rehearsal space and shoot some footage there so you can see how the songs for the next sessions starts to hopefully find their final nature. Final nature??? Hmm.. Ok, but you will hear how bad they sound's before we record them. Hahaha. 
So next two weeks we will rehearse and I will visit Estonia because of My Sky's video. I can tell you that it will be amazing... it is almost ready, but it still needs some "singing" parts.

A Ghost on tape!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


video

Fuck fucking fuck!!!!! We were in the night life with Antti last night so we are in pretty bad shape now and very sensitive. There have been really weird mood last few days here at the studio. But we just shot some video footage and there it was! A fucking ghost or something, but of course we like to think it is a ghost hahaha. I think I will take few icons with me when we have next sessions... I have nothing against ghosts generally but I don't like this guy at all. Well you can see by your self. That black fuck that flies first over Big A and then over my mac. Good stuff indeed...

Antti had a day off so we have been doing all kinda fun here whole day. Ok rest of the guys left hours ago, but i am still here.
Listening the songs and trying new vocal ideas and all kinda stupid stuff. Lets see do what Antti will say tomorrow when he will hear all the mayhem on tape. Maybe I should take a taxi home soon.(It is 2:40am) or maybe I will walk. It is 5 km but I kinda feel like walking.
But now I will change a song... laters.

We well try to learn how to play the songs of the session. We haven't quite decided yet what songs are next on the line, but for sure we will record Between Light And Nowhere, Sixty Seconds and Faith. I quess we will do also The Mission and Insecurity.
We will see. We will shoot footage from the rehearsals too so you will be informed.

Gear list and Jaani says:" Oh my god how beautiful day it is. Mommy can I go out and kill somebody?"

Hello children!!! Here we are editing vocals and playing acoustic guitars with Antti. We are both totally dead and we were thinking that maybe we should stop working tonite 00:00 already and go home and maybe even try to sleep. It might do some good. I should still sing few backing vocal tracks and little stuff like that and tomorrow we start mixing this shit. We should have five tracks ready this week. Not the final mixes but raw mixes.
I have listed gear we have used so far on the album.
Laters folks!
