Mixing the Single, Music Video etc!

Spring is coming to North Finland, slowly but firmly. Nature is slowly starting to wake up, just like our band as well as grizzly bears from their winter sleep. And if we were superstitious, we would say the curse is haunting us once again. Not the ‘Curse of the Black Pearl’ but the Curse of the Dark Waters. But little things cannot stop us, they only temporarily slow us down.

Let’s hear the facts.

The single is ready to be mixed and the mixing session starts today. Finally!

The songs for the second (main) recording session are 99.9% finished, and that session is going to start in late April, around Easter, that is. Before that, a lot of lyrics need to be written. And after April, there’s still going to be some smaller recording sessions, so the album is (unfortunately) going to be released in autumn. I just can’t believe it’s already our seventh album…

In addition, in April it’s going to be “our first 20th anniversary” as Andromeda, the first forefather of EToS recorded the first demo “The Fourth Dimension” in April 1992.

And, finally, there’s going to be a music video for us! This video session is going to start in a couple of months.

P.S. RIP Mr. Tonmi Lillman (1973-2012). May your drum solos bang loud wherever you are.

Happy New Year!

Happy new year 2012 guys and gals! The year 2011 was intriguing for us. We recorded the first half of the forthcoming album. If everything had gone as planned, we would have had our seventh album almost finished by now. However, due to some unfortunate incidents, the second recording session has been rescheduled to next spring.

But anyway, 2012 is going to be an exciting year for us – and we’re probably going to have some exciting news next year! We hope your year will be great, too!

Tour Almost Over

Hello guys and gals,

It’s been a long time since we’ve been writing a blog entry here, so I suppose it’s time to summarize what we’ve been doing during the past 12 months.

We started our Finnish / European tour a year ago with several gigs here in Finland. You know, between 2001 and 2008, we only played four gigs (!) of which only one took place outside Oulu, our hometown (!!). There were a lot of reasons for not playing live shows during that time, and the most important reason was that between late 2001 and late 2004, we were in an inactive state – in short, this band didn’t even exist at that time.

But during the last 12 months, we’ve been doing more gigs than ever (excluding the year 2000 that was an exception in many ways). So, thanks to all who came to see us in Finland, Romania and Russia! We still have one more gig this year – Hamburg in a couple of weeks. There may be a gig or two next year, but we want to work on our next album in 2011.

Currently, we’re writing new songs. We already got a lot of ’em but you know, there’s always room for new great songs. We have several ideas on how the next album should sound like… I can’t tell you guys much about the ideas but let’s just say we (once again) want to be versatile and try to to something new. We also want to make the album heavier, more extreme, more beautiful, more athmospheric than ever before.. Well, not in one song but as a whole.

The schedule is a bit tentative at the moment. You see, if there’s something we learned from the “crazy years” between 1997 and 2001, it’s this: we don’t want to wear ourselves out anymore. We did that ten years ago and that’s what caused us break up. We want to keep our schedules a bit loose. Ten years ago, we would have gone to the studio right after the last gig of the tour. Now, we need a bit more time.

So, we’re trying to get the next album out in early 2012. We’re going to have our first studio session sometimes in April and May 2011 and the second session sometimes during the autumn or early winter.

Thanks and cheers,
Jarmo Puolakanaho / Eternal Tears of Sorrow

Eternal Tears Of Sorrow, Before The Dawn

Finnish Tour Over!

We played almost a dozen gigs here in Finland since last October and they were just amazing. Later this year, we’re going to play some gigs in Romania, Germany and Russia, so come check us out if you’re around at that time! We’re also preparing new material to be recorded in 2011 and we hope to get the album out by the end of 2011 or the beginning of 2012. But that’s just a tentative schedule. We’ll let you know when we get further information…
