H.E.A.T. - Studio Diary 2013 (recording of new album)

Will be intresting to see how the coming album holds up to the previous ones, with Dalone now out of the picture. He was one of the main songwriters in the band and a great guitarist to boot. Not that Eric Rivers is a slouch either, but I'm still getting used to the idea of H.E.A.T as a one guitarist band.
I'm wondering if they plan on eventually taking in something new to fill Dave's boots? Maybe it's not needed, because from what I've heard they are actually as good as ever live now, with Jona Tee evidently playing some of Dave Dalone's parts on the keys.

My feeling about the new album is that it's gonna be another killer album, because these guys has never failed to deliver so far and the snippets from the diaries sound just as expected, killer. I wonder how much of the material is taken from the A.T.N sessions (from which I think there was actually more than 20 songs recorded) and how much is more recently written material. With Dave Dalone they lost another prolific songwriter (remember Kenny Leckremo was also one of the main composers in the band until his descent) and I just hope this won't affect the quality of their future material too much.

I'll throw the question out to the fans here, of which I know there are a few. Would you prefer H.E.A.T continuing as a one guitarist band, or should they hire another one? Personally I would probably prefer them continuing this way, as long as it works. They are my fave band of the last few years, and I don't like changes. Having Erik replace Kenny was difficult enough, and although he proved (contrary to my expectations) to be a phenomenal replacement I just don't like the thought of another new guy in the band. Maybe it's just me, but hey, if you are a hardcore fan you are... ;)

Like you said, if it works this way I'd say stick with it. You don't really need a 6 man band, do ya?

Nice, 2:14 mins into studio diary part 2 has a Black Velvet by Alannah Myles feel to it. Maaaaan I just hope the final mix will sound EXACTLY like that because often times guitars get buried in the mix I feel or the sound loses its overall punch during mixing and mastering. The way it sounds here would be just perfect, big and ''kinda'' raw

    • Hold on soldier, I'm hoping that wasn't aimed at me. I don't think I was putting anyone down, and as far as I know, I'm not an atheist either. I don't actually know. I can't stand all this label rubbish and don't have a label for my thoughts on this stuff. Yes, I believe you are born, you live and you die and that's the end of it. But they're just my thoughts.  Anyway, why are we talking about Christmas now anyway? Still almost 30 days to go... 
    • Agree, love that Irish girl type look. Tans are overrated!
    • Only humans were created in the image of God, and most consider that to mean possession of an eternal soul. However, the animals were put on the earth for humans to have dominion and use plus care for them. As for Heaven, we can't know what it will be like, but in my mind it would not be heaven if there were not dogs for me to hang out with, so I expect that yes there will be animals, otherwise how is it heaven for an animal lover? This view of heaven being in the clouds, wearing robes and playing harps is mostly an atheist's invention to mock what they can't comprehend. To try and explain heaven to an atheist is like trying to describe the sky to someone who has had their face buried in mud their entire lives. It's a rather fruitless and usually thankless task. I know atheists have their pile of dirt and nothingness to look forward to (lol). Yes, I am aware that atheists have invented this concept of "ascention" through genetic evolution or artificial immortality as a replacement of heaven in your religion, but I'm not sure how atheists rationalise an incorporeal existence in their concept of pointless nothingness. It doesn't bother me either what you atheists believe, I just wish you weren't so arrogant about your nihilistic mindset and cease with the put downs of those who don't share your belief set. And merry Christmas my pagan friends! I genuinely mean that.
    • Haha. Been decades since I had any discussions like this on the forum and I definitely do not want to revisit, but as my mind is always ticking over I was actually thinking about stuff the other day. So if we (humans) get a fancy afterlife kickin' it with Jesus and God n' stuff, do animals? When an ant dies, does the ant experience Heaven? Does a dog, or a cat? An elephant? Do all beings experience Heaven (or hell too, I guess, if they didn't follow the gospel?). Or do only humans experience Heaven, and if so, why do animals have a pointless existence but there simply must be something more to a human's life other than being born, living and dying?  Genuinely curious, compadre. I used to have many discussions with Mark (metalmaniac777) back in the day and we're still best buds and we even made love a few times. I'm sure he doesn't mind me disclosing that. So seriously not having a dig, but I live to learn. 
    • lol. Really interested to know if they get any takers. Solid wad of cash, $7500. Mildly interesting they still use a photo of the band with Lexxi in it, assuming they haven't replaced him yet? 
    • Yeah, I got a bit of a Degreed vibe from it too. Quality stuff. 
    • My wife had the news on this afternoon and I saw this mind numbing horseshit panic-splashed across the headlines. I thought wow, this sounds alarming. But I heard B.1.1.530 is going to hit even harder. To be honest, though, they called it something else on Aussie news, though - Cock Makers variant, or something like that. I seriously can't remember, but they actually had a name for it rather than this morse code version of it.  Anyway, 95% vaccinated in NSW and we still have to walk around like moron beatshit brains with our face masks on - mandatory - in all indoor settings. Mask rules weren't even this harsh for the majority of the pre-vaccine pandemic. Fuck me I love this cuntry. 
    • Yes, very nice, but unfortunately a distinct lack of "Titties" on show! FFS! This isn't the "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread!
    • Not for me, but have at it bud. 
    • Titties not kitties.
