We only finished one song back when we started recording it in 2005, "Werewolves of the Bloodmoon." My band-mates finished most of the instruments for the album, but that's the only song I completed the vocals for. I started working on the vocals for other songs, but I'm pseudo-tone deaf, so it's really hard for me to tell when I'm singing in key or not. Thus it sometimes takes me a ridiculous number of takes get the vocals right (aggressive vocals are much easier for me). Before I was able to finish the vocals on any of the other tracks, the band kind of fell apart and most of the members ended up moving away.
So for the past nine years I've basically been sitting on an album that was around 80-90% done. I've periodically attempted to record the vocals myself, but without someone to tell me when a take is good, it's like I'm a blind man trying to paint. So it was discouraging and I put the album on the back burner.
Last fall, I started recording again with Jessica's help, and actually started making some good progress. I had hoped to have the album out before 2014, but there were a couple songs that were still missing instruments, and those band-members had scattered to the wind. We tried to arrange a get together to do a final bout of recording, but we weren't able to get everyone's schedules to line up.
However, now things are starting to fall into place and it looks like it'll actually be finished in time for Halloween. It'll be such a huge relief to finally get that album finished and out there as it's been nagging me in the back of my mind for nearly a decade now.
