Coalesce vocal sessions Part 1.

Well, I got the lyrics done, and I’m pretty excited about where they went, and were they could possibly go in the future if we are fortunate enough to get to write again. Both have the theme of “salt” in them. They are very transitional from the standard angry, pissed off at the world lyrics of old coalesce days, to the more reserved yet directed narrative of my writing today.

I went in and recorded with Ed Rose, and we got the resinging track of “that’s the way” done. It’s much better, I’m not embarassed to listen to the track anymore. We’ll keep the original takes on the repress for you die hards though. We aren’t trying to go all George Lucas on you, but I did want to correct the horrendous job I did on those 2 Zeplin songs.

I got through the first new song as well, but was very unhappy with my performance. My back is not as strong as it used to be when I was more vocally active. It’s very alarming to realize that 30 is indeed old. In my defense, I was screaming non stop for 3 hours. I lost strength, and decided to pack it in and start from scratch on several of the vocal arrangements. The great news is that the new date will allow Nate and Jes to be in the studio with me all at once. Something that hasn’t happened since Functioning on Impatience I believe.

I’ve pretty much settled on the song titles as “Son of Son of Man” b/w “I am this”. I’ll have more to report on the 19th of next month.
