Yes, it’s been a long time since we wrote here the last time. We’ve finally recorded our seventh album. The mixing sessions started yesterday and they will go on until, well, perhaps next week, who knows?
As we told you earlier, we shot our very first music video earlier this year. Due to many things beyond our control, it has not been released yet (soon!!) but meanwhile, here are some “the making of” photos.

All the drum tracks for the forthcoming album have been taken care of! Nice. Now it’s time for a little break and to go on with the guitars and the bass, starting next weekend. Finally, we’re starting to realize what the whole album is going to sound like. Once again, it’s going to sound a bit different. Maybe not as dark as Children of the Dark Waters. Some things on the album definitely remind us of our previous albums. And there something new too, as always.
And next week, we’re going to shoot our first official music video! It’s kind of weird we’ve never had one before. I remember our record company talking about a music video fourteen years ago. But it’s been like a curse or something, because each time we’ve started planning a video, something has come up.
The album doesn’t have a title yet, by the way, not even a tentative title. But the single should be out in a couple of months. We will reveal the name of the single song and the video song a bit later, so stay tuned.
Just can’t wait for the tours and live shows. Soon, folks, soon!

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.
