The album is ready to sail away…
Saturday, Juli 2, 2005
The mix and master has been done and the result is fantastic. Thomas Johansson at Criteria Mastering has done an incredible work with the sound… We have also received the booklet from Markus Sigfridsson at Tenement Design. Both the cover and booklet have a great symbolic and strength. We are extremely pleased with the work that Thomas and Markus have done for the band… Thank you guys and God bless!

We will now begin to promote the album during this summer. Hopefully we can look forward to a release sometimes in the autumn 2005!
If you are interested in preorder the album, take a look here!

This was the last contribution for me in the “album log”! I hope you had a great time reading… Who knows, one day we might pick this page alive again??

The last weeks…
Monday, May 16, 2005
We have now concluded everything in the studio…
After some extremely intense and exhausted weeks, we have now handed over all material for the beginning of the mixing session. Thomas Johansson at Criteria mastering is the man to mix down the material. We are very confident that the material is in good metal hands…

The last month Johan has done a wonderful job with the guitar. There’s been some really heavy guitar tracks added and a solid metal base has been formed…
All acoustic guitar and solo guitar has given this record a magic touch... Great work Johan!

Peter’s vocals are something extraordinary. It has been a very pleasant journey to see this great vocals increase in strength for each day…
The backing vocals have been done by myself and Peter. We have also received some additional help from the amazing vocalists Jerker Tenenbaum and Ulrik Arturén. Thank you guys, for your big efforts and great deliver...
Both the vocals and backing vocals has brought the album to a high level…

I must say that the last days have convinced us that we are dealing with some really great stuff! We are much exited to see the result of the next coming weeks…
We pray that God will hold his mighty hand over these final chapters of the production...

I will also take the opportunity to thank Johan, my companion in the studio during these weeks. We should be proud man…
To all the guys around the studio x factory, I will also express from myself and all guys in the band a great thanks for all help. Especially Jerker Tenenbaum for all hours struggling with the vocals and helping us with the technical issues… God bless you all!

The Journey Proceeds
Sunday, April 10, 2005
The work is proceeding and we have really pushed our limits the last couple of weeks…

Andres has still some bas guitar to record. We did a break last week because we thought it was anxious to get start with Johan’s guitar and Peter’s vocals.

Johan has almost finished the first guitar and the sound is really good…
Peter has also entered the studio… During the Easter he recorded the title track “beyond the moon” and the great songs “footprints” and “actor”.

I am in full order to edit the keyboard that Samuel has recorded. The Keyboard will be big…

We feel that time has running fast the last weeks... Please pray for us that we will stay focused rest of the recording…

The Beginning of a Journey
Thursday, Mars 24, 2005

After some major computer problems we have finally been able to start the recording. During the last weeks we have recorded the drums. We have also begun to record the keyboard and bass guitar.

It all started “late” Friday evening (4 Mars). After some sound checks the journey began when I launched “footprints” into the speakers. It felt so great…
The drum session has been good, except for some minor problems. After some adjustment I now have recorded the 9 tracks and the recording of the drums has come to an end. A special thanks to Thomas for an outstanding work with the drum sound.

Andreas is now in full order to record the bass guitar. He started a couple of weeks ago and has resumed this last weekend. 4-5 songs are almost finished and he will continue with the recording the whole week… Hopefully we will come so far with the bass that Johan can begin with the guitar during the Easter.

Samuel and I are almost finished with the keyboard recording. We have recorded the keyboard in our homes the last days and we have received astonishing results.

“For those who haven’t heard the latest about our new band name: We are now called Majestic Vanguard”.

Since we are entering the holy week, we pray for a peaceful Easter to everyone.

God Bless you all!!

The work until now, in very short terms
Sunday, February 27, 2005

As the producer and also being responsible for management and coordination around the production, my work so far has involved very much of planning, contacting, booking and information. I also have tried to promote the band a little… Most of the planning and contacting has been finishing off. But there is still some work around the studio session that hopefully will come to a conclusion in the next coming days.

We have started this website as a step to launch the band. The web designer is our guitar player Johan Abelson, management and updates is done by me.

The band and what we have been doing lately stays behind the secret area of Vanguard! The future will tell… But the feeling in the band is that we have a very good material to work with. The rehearsals during this winter have developed the band to something fresh and interesting. We rely in what we are doing and pray that God will give us the right implements to renew the material to something great in the studio… Please pray for us!
