New A P O T H E O S IS track: "Final Boss [Phase 2]", Better Than The Book recording updates + more!
Hello everyone and I hope you've all had a good week since the last post. Over here, my week has mainly been filled with recording rhythm guitars for the new Better Than The Book album (more on that in a second) and doing the final checks and preparations for the Final Boss Theme for A P O T H E O S I S which is now finished and ready to share with you below! There's not a whole lot else to share this week so let's start with that new track!
So first of all, after many days of composition, editing, mixing, and all that jazz, I'm super happy to present to you the demo for the Phase 2 music of the Final Boss Theme for the A P O T H E O S I S game! By now the primordial god is getting pretty angry at your attempts to defeat him, and the fabric of existence is crumbling around you, and this cinematic/metal mash-up/remix of the Phase 1 boss theme will accompany the final leg of the fight as you battle to achieve apotheosis! I hope you enjoy it, and I'm certainly looking forward to playing the next demo when it comes out! Feel free to play the current demo here and without further wait, here's The Final Boss Theme [Phase 2]:
And with that track done, that actually concludes this round of my A P O T H E O S I S work for the time being! I think there'll be one more track to come (credits music), then it'll just be the final checks, mastering and stuff before the game is finished and the soundtrack released! Exciting times, but I imagine it'll be a little while before I'll be composing for this again. Looking forward to it when the time comes though! This also concludes the weekly new tracks for a while (sad times I know), but I hoped you enjoyed all the new music these past few months, and with the upcoming Better Than The Book album currently in the works, it shouldn't be too long until there's new music to be shared again!
And on the topic of the new BTTB album, next and lastly this week, I have some updates on that for you all. As of today (Wednesday as I write this), 5/10 tracks of Rhythm guitars have been recorded and compiled ready for the next step! The end of last week had a number of mishaps and delays due to multiple power-cuts and some bad planning on my end (forgetting to make notes in the demo sessions...), so I'm a little behind schedule, but I hope to be all caught up by the end of the month ready to start recording bass (and possible acoustic guitars) in April! I'll keep you informed with how that's all going and feel free to follow Better Than The Book on Twitter for daily updates on the production progress!
And that about wraps things up for this week. Kind of a short post compared to the last few, but such is the way. This upcoming week is sure to be filled with BTTB rhythm guitars for me, so I'll be busy with that and probably not much else until the end of the month I recon (but we shall see). Another little bit of exciting news with regards future music though, I finally invested in an extra boom attachment for my mic stand, so now I should be able to appropriately and simultaneously mic up my acoustic guitar and vocals (amongst other things) to do some proper high quality LIVE acoustic covers (In theory). It only arrived while I was typing this, and I still need to give it a proper test, but I'm excited at the new prospects! Anyways, I hope you enjoy the new music and as always, thanks for supporting JabunAudio and my various musical projects! I hope you have a great week until the next blog post and have fun whatever you're up to in the next 7 days. Take care!
