Drum and Bass Tracks Done

by Fat 26. August 2012 21:13

With basic drum tracks and bass parts recorded in late August and at different times between that and early October, respectively, 'Gyrosophy' is starting to take shape.


Meanwhile, keyboard parts are coming in: Advox has done a tremendous job recording at home during weekends, and the sounds we have heard so far are exactly what the music requires. Lots of Hammond, exquisite soloing, lush synth strings and almost anything else one might ask for. Likewise, Quizz has come up with a few home demos of his guitar parts while getting ready for studio work. Depending on studio availability, his sessions are likely to be scattered across the rest of October and the first half of November.


Pics from the drum recording session (with a little bass guitar) can be viewed here.

Recording Sessions for New HL Album Started

by Fat 21. August 2012 08:10

Following a lengthy period of silence, Holy Lamb is finally ready to bring you some exciting news. The 20th of August 2012 marked the beginning of the recording sessions for what will result in "Gyrosophy", Holy Lamb's fourth album, their first in just over 10 years. "Like the album title suggests, it feels we're now at the end of a full cycle of spiralling up and down throughout the last decade. Although some of the moves were quite unpleasant and rather discouraging, somehow we managed to retain the balance in what has been a period of steady development for each one of us and the band as a whole. We would have experienced none of that, had we put out a mediocre album every other year, so there's a certain element of wisdom behind our absence too," comments Aigars Červinskis, the band's founder, bassist and vocalist.


With sound engineer Tālis Timorts at the knobs, the band will spend the next few days laying down the drum tracks for the entire album; the recording sessions for vocals, guitar, bass and keyboard parts are scheduled across September and, possibly, reaching into the first half of October. The finished product is likely to consist of eight titles, a couple of which have been stapling the Holy Lamb live set for a few years now, such as "Trouble Vision" and "This Amazing Race". Since most of the new album is purely instrumental, the players are given a great opportunity to bring their skills to the fore. Meanwhile, the band is talking to certain guest players to see if they would be interested in spicing up the sound. Besides the music, the album cover artwork is the next thing to be sorted out. "If we can get the artwork done according to our original idea, you'll probably want a big poster of that image on your wall," says Aigars.


Progress updates from the studio will be published online here at HL Universe, but you can also LIKE the band's Facebook page to be among the first to get the news.

November Gigs and more

by Fat 5. November 2011 05:49

It's getting colder outside so we've been keeping the flame alive. In other words, there has been quite some activity in the Holy Lamb camp. What we've got here is a new logo (the round thing on the right) and a whole new set of promo pictures taken by our long-time friend Muffin.


That's not all, though. We've been invited to perform at The Skys official CD release and birthday party in Vilnius on 11 November (the New York Club is the venue for that). Apart from The Skys and ourselves, the other acts include Appleseed from Poland, Bliuzoholikai from Lithuania, and Il Castello di Atlante from Italy. The next day, 12 November, Holy Lamb and The Skys will travel to Rīga where the two bands will be joined by Latvian fellows Toms Londons at Nabaklab, a nice club in the old town. The Rīga show will be a double celebration of 'Baltic prog' as The Skys will be presenting their new album, Colours of the Desert, to the Rīga crowd and Holy Lamb will light 20 candles on the band's birthday cake!


See you soon...........


Springtime Urlalla: HL in Jolly Company of Sōla

by Fat 11. June 2011 08:02


The June 4 show we did with the Riga-based mixed choir Sōla was an experience to remember

and a wonderful collaboration too. Earlier this year, in March, we got a message from our friend who is also one of the choristers with Sōla. He told us that the conductor of the choir, the talented Mr Kaspars Vēvers, would like to put on a show with Holy Lamb and perform the 30+ minute piece of music 'Jolly Company' ('Jautra sabiedrība') penned by Latvian dadaist composer Juris Ābols (b. 1950). For initial reference, we were supplied with a recording of that piece by the famous Latvian Radio Choir, the entity which records Mr Ābols's music by default. So we had a listen and some good laugh (some of us claimed to hear smatterings of Mr Bungle in it, not far from the truth anyway!), but then the sheet music arrived backed up with Guitar Pro files. That was when things started to look darn serious: numerous tempo/mood changes, weird measures... The composer's favourite must be 7/16!


We started to study the material in mid-April, but our drummer Toms had a 3-week business commitment in Slovakia, so we had to do without him. The more we studied, the more we fell in love with the music... and the more persistent were questions like 'Can we really do this?' and 'How on earth is one supposed to play this part?' Toms returned to the fold only a week before the scheduled first rehearsal with the choir and things were really starting to gel. All of a sudden we were playing with a real drummer (as opposed to the midi hitter in Guitar Pro)! Regardless of what we might have expected, the rehearsals went very well, and we had four of them in the two weeks before the show.


The show managed to attract a four-generation crowd, quite a big one! The concert kicked off with an a capella piece by Swedish composer Jan Sandström, followed by another Ābols' composition called Karawane (extremely weird stuff!). As the choir went off to get changed, we performed a couple of our own instrumental tracks, The Lingering Dream and iINTHESKY. Then the choir came back and WE DID IT! Later we learned that this was the very first time that 'Jolly Company' was performed live in its entirety. The live recording of our version of the piece clocks in at 35+ minutes, so, when the show was over, we knew that we had just got past an important milestone in our timeline. Just like finishing the final page in a chapter of a book with an unpredictable plot. Or probably starting a new one.


By the way, the concert was Mr Vēvers' master's exam for the Latvian Academy of Music. He got a 10 (out of 10), which translates as excellent. In our opinion, though, he deserved an 11!!


Check out some of the pics (megathanks to Ludis Illo!) from the show by clicking on the one below. Hopefully, we'll also be able to share a video with you one day: we spotted a couple of video cameras in the hall.
