Vintage Flesh Finishes Recording New Album

New Hampshire black metal act Vintage Flesh has checked in with the following update about finishing the recording of a new album:

"I awoke this morning on what is the day after completion. My feelings on this day are something of a mystery to me. Feel drained but purged of all that had tormented me this entire summer. It seems as far back as the day we had begun this latest task, I had begun to experience a certain uneasey feeling. Today is the first day i can finally say to a large degree this feeling has been lifted.

"The demons have been exorcised and dealt with accordingly. All is recorded! The beast that dwelled with in us have been drawn out from the fire pits to be contained and confined on tape. May that precious tape see its way to mass CD Production! The experiences of the paranormal throughout this trying process have been subtle but many for all involved. I now have a sense of clarity and peace and it is not all derived from within. Much of it seems conveyed to me by out side forces that have been with us through out. This recording made a change in me and it will be some time yet before i can say what form this change has taken. Yesterday was the longest day of recording. Lets just say i returned home that night at three thirty in the morning. The hour of the night gaunts! Bizarre but though my girl was left wondering and wasn't very thrilled with me.

"It was a particularly drizzly and overcast day. Perfectly miserable day to end it on! Me and mat mostly worked alone. Hex appeared briefly but found it much to tedious a process to sit in on. What ever final doodlings he had in mind to do was left undone as he chose to leave very early in the day. It must not have been very important. We had no weed, and it was for the best. Shit kills my vocals and my stamina.

"We had one visitor by the name of matt. Matt is a real character lets just say that. True blue blooded metal man and hell on wheels(w.A.S.P. Quote)! He sat quietly knowing he was witness to something horrendous and and in some small way monumental. Gemini contributed some vocals on 'priest skin ship' for the viking chant portions of the song. Also added his touch vocally on another song yet untitled. A part reserved for hex originally. I tore my throat out thoroughly well and wont be saying much today. My vocal diet through out the process consisted of warm cider vinegar (straight), lemonade, water, beer(and much of it), honey,a nd some other things that would not make it into a witch's brew.

"I had the chance to listen to everything unmixed unmastered at the end of the night. As one reviewer said, we have no right to sound this big this early on in our time together. Fuck it. We are stealing the right damn it! I was floored by the magnitude of material and impact of each separate piece. So much like the first album in the way that each songs stands apart from each other having an individual entity about each one and all independent of one another.

"The flavors here in are many and all are horrible to taste, but I think it will find its audience and they will stand ready to devour all contents held within. We are off to mastering next Saturday and it will be mixed down at the studio in Newton, NH. All this week until then. Not much left to do before the final assault on you! Stay with, the worst is yet to come."
