We already took rest of the keyboards and some additional tracks to the final mixing and rest of the recorded tracks we take to the mixing next week and in the coming days the solos and other leads and melodies are mixed on the basic tracks...then we just gonna need to go thru if there is anything to be fixed before we start the mastering. Hope we have everything ready on August-September!!!

Hi there!

Finally some update from the recordings of THAUROROD's next studio album. We have now all the Lasse's guitars...solos and lead/melody parts recorded. Harri has recorded nearly all his keyboards. Orchestrations are being done from this week on. Also Emil has started the recordings of his solos and lead parts few days ago.

So we aim to finish all the recordings during the beginning of June and take the tracks for the final mixing session where the songs will be polished to sound motherfucking kick ass metal!!! Hope to finish with the very final and mastered album somewhere between June and July.

'Till the next update and have a rocking summer everyone!

STUDIO DIARY – DAY 31-35 (Mixing - Part 1)

Hello there!

Last week was the first part of the mixing of our upcoming album! We had drums, bass, rhythm guitars, basic keyboards and all the vocals mixed at D-Studio ( All I can say at this point is that the songs just sounds awesome and so powerful...drums kick like hell and sounds massive, bass got very aggressive sound and sounds just insane, guitars full of balls...but still clear and crunchy. All this has insanely awesome keyboards and vocals full of mind blowing harmonies mixed on top of it.

Now we still have all the lead guitars and solos, orchestrations and additional keyboards + all the small little addings that we gonna record next...

Have an awesome weekend everyone!

Duuuuuuuudes of Thaurorod

STUDIO DIARY – DAY 26, 27 & 28 (Keyboard recordings part 1)

It's Haage, the keyboard maestro himself writing here and this is my first time ever writing to this blog so please be gentle with me. As you might have noticed from the last few posts we're doing great with the album recordings! Now it's my turn to let you people know how the keyboard-, or like Mr Blastbeat Producer (also known as Lasse or Scatman) might say, gayboard-recordings are going.

I prepared myself for this god forsaken task by drinking heavily four days in a row, modeling for S&M-photoshootings, wandering aimlessly in the snow wearing a straitjacket and all that kind of routine stuff that I like to do before recording anything. I think that this kind of routine is a necessary thing to do to get my mind in the proper state for being able to do my part for this kick-ass powermetal album.

I've been recording the basic keyboard parts for a few days now and things are going really well. About 1/3 of the songs are ready and I'm quite satisfied with the sounds so far. I started with the songs that are worktitled as "Shakaalin Kaali Ikaalisissa" and "Chase". The first evening went mainly by searching the proper sounds that would fit perfectly to this epic masterpiece.

Oh, and for the perverts out there who are interested in what keyboards I'm using for these sessions; Yamaha Motif ES and Korg TR.

Enjoy the weekend and stay tuned for more epic blogshit fellow warriors!

Yours sincerely, Haage

STUDIO DIARY - DAY 24 & 25 (Rhythm guitar recordings)

Hey there boys and girls!

So now we are finally done with the rhythm guitars! Yesterday and the day before we managed to nail the final track's which were "Ride the Ray'O" and "Gaffercapercaillie", EPIC SHIT! Loads of killer riffs, mighty choruses and just pure epicness, that's what these massive mammoths are about!
Now it's time for me and Emppu to create solos, leads, licks and tricks so you won't hear from us two for a while, but our gayboardwizard Haage will take it from here!

And btw, everyone should buy the Gloryhammer album "Tales From The Kingdom Of Fife"!

Take care and stay PowerMetal!

STUDIO DIARY - DAY 22 & 23 (Rhythm guitar recordings)

Hello again!

Almost there, only two songs left and then we're done with the rhythm guitars!
So yesterday and the day before we managed to complete two tracks "Chase" and "SCAT
We didn't do any major changes since the demos, but a few small tricks here and there to spice these tracks up!
As I already told you guys about "Chase" in the last blog, so here's something about "SCAT".
It's really a different kinda tune for us, pretty slow and heavy stuff with great atmospehere.
But now it's time to have a few days off and we'll continue next week with some EPIC shit!

Happy Holidays my friends and take care!
