So many exciting things have been happening on the Gathered in Darkness front that Robert Lowe and I felt it was a good time to update all of you that have been eagerly awaiting this project.
We are in the last few weeks of primary tracking. In fact, we expect to begin mix down on some of the tracks in early April. We are making very good strides towards having this massive venture buttoned up by late June.
Robert Lowe has finished his main tracks of doomed proggy goodness. He is working through his list of changes and corrections at this time. Joel Gregoire has turned in some amazing work so far and is plowing through the rest of his leads. Chuck Williams has completed his vocal tracks, and we are very pleased with his outstanding work. Austin Funderburk and David Gonzalez have also wrapped up their respective parts, and I have guest solos already turned in from Bobby Williamson, John Morris and Steve Jones.
There have been some line up changes since our main cast release. We regretfully have had to part ways with John Calvin, Tim Wayne, and Kevin Bartlett. This was mainly due to scheduling conflicts, and we wish them well in their future musical adventures. Stepping up to the plate to save the day are the following awesome people:
Chris Kotlarz: Drums
Fred Marshall: Vocals–“Dark Advocate”
Kelly Fitzsimmons: Guest Solo
I also wanted to take this chance to share with you the artwork for the cover of Gathered In Darkness. This was done by Dave Foreman in Houston, Texas.
I hope all of you are as excited about the impending release of this project as we are. The time is coming soon.
