Slowly getting back into “writing-shape”, so to speak.
Things can get tricky doing quality control, figuring out what’s working during the writing/arrangement phase, since listening to things too many times can often rob one’s creativity.
…and creativity’s important when you’re experimenting.
Like any other record, this one’s going to be a process.
But I can say this for now: The current plan is to make a concept record, and it’s going to be dark.
(Last record had a common theme and concept, but it wasn’t much of a concept record compared to the one before that.)
It’s also going to be dense harmonically.
