FarCry update...

"So what the HELL is going on with this Pete?" is one of the more polite questions I've received about the new FarCry CD, and I've got some news believe it or not!

 

Just got back from the studio in Arkansas late last night after completing all the rhythm guitar tracks. I'll be blasting out the solos in my home studio over the next two weeks and shooting them over to Ty and Erik for incorporation into the final product. The guitars were the last part to be done so all that remains is tweaking and mixing the whole thing. I am VERY excited about this CD and while I must again apologise profusely to all of you who pre-ordered it or are just waiting until it comes out. I stand behind the label's decision to delay it 1000%. Kivel could have taken some shortcuts and just pushed this out "as is", but some tough decisions were made and as a result this will be everything a hard rock album should be and more! :banger:

 

Hopefully we'll have some music for y'all to check out fairly soon, and I will be sure to keep you updated, but FarCry IS coming, and it is coming SOON!

 

Pete

How can it be compared to the Rockarma - Bring it !, Pete ?

Excellent question, I think both of them are great CD's, but then of course I would think that only being slightly biased... ;)

 

The 'karma in my opinion is pretty straightforward mid-late eighties "hair metal". Although there are elements of that style on the Farcry, I think there is quite a bit more variety because of a couple of things like Mark's (vocals) versatility as a singer and the a number of different songwriters. Where Rockarma starts off with a bang and pretty much keeps it at the same level throughout, Farcry delivers more peaks and valleys.

 

Which is better? I'll have to leave that to you guys, but I hope you like 'em both! :drink:

As you know Pete, I love 'Peaks and Valleys' ;) so I will be getting this. In fact I have had this on pre-order for at least 6 months or more now, so get on with it!! :lol:

Stronger vox huh?....sounds good my interest has been peaked.

He's got a real strong voice, singing is what he's been doing for a living for like forever. I was just looking for some of my old stuff with him (we were in a band back in the mid 80's) but I can't find the damn files anywhere. If I find 'em I'll shoot you a link.

Yeah, looking forward to this too, Pete. I'm also all for taking the time to make it right too. There's so much stuff to listen to (including Rockarma ;) ) that we impatient little bastards can wait as long as it takes. Can't wait... love that Rockarma disc!
