OFFICIAL KROKMITĖN "OMICRON-OMEGA" STUDIO UPDATE
March 2nd 2014
Simlev released the following statement on their official website krokmiten.com.
Since January 2014, we are past the recording stage. We are currently sculpting instrument sounds to render Omicron-Omega the way we think is best. For this album, I will be taking up mixing duties.
I'm excited to approach the mixing board. Being rather inexperienced at this will prevent me from getting an overproduced result. It's fair to say that we're aiming to give Omicron-Omega a less polished sound compared to Alpha-Beta. It will be rawer and straight to the point. With help from Krokmitėn's new drummer Lupiaan, we created an album that is more complex. Fast parts are faster, slow parts are slower and scary parts are creepier! It's more or less Alpha-Beta on steroids!
We know that our fans are growing impatient for this release. But when working on a DIY platform, things that should take a day can end up taking a week sometimes. Especially when you start experimenting, getting caught-up in fine tuning and whatnot...
Lately some necessary adjustments were made within the band. Those pushed back our tentative release date by a few months. We want to still have fun during that last stretch of the process and don't want to offer anything half-assed. We are into this for the long run, doing this for the right reason and we're giving all we've got. Rest assured that every day is for us, a step closer to a release date.
Concept-wise, our first album Alpha-Beta dealt with the human psyche and microscopic disarray. This time around, Omicron-Omega reflects chaos on planetary levels! The lyrics are not as cryptic as Alpha-Beta, but again delving into the roots of the human existence concept. They are much more aggressive and "in-your-face".
In short, production is going well at the moment, it's progressing at a steady pace. Even the album cover is close to completion. If you're waiting for this, rest assured, it will be worth your wait and yes, Omicron-Omega will be available for free!
