As some of you might know already, my hard rock band Overnight Sensation will be releasing a debut album this autumn, entitled Life’s a Bitch.  You can hear select raw mixes of select tracks at our MySpace or Reverbnation pages.

Yesterday, we performed the album screening for Life’s a Bitch at Johtoääni Studios in Helsinki.  This was our opportunity to make last-minute notes about small mixing details that we wanted altered before the album goes to the mastering stage.  Nikke Niemispelto of Drumforest Studios in Viitasaari, Finland has done an INCREDIBLE job mixing and producing our album, and it is going to absolutely blow away the listener once it sees the release date.

Johtoääni Studio’s boss Risto Eskolin makes a few production-related recommendations for what he hears

As it stands, we have 11 all killer/no filler tracks set for Life’s a Bitch, and clocking in at under 40 minutes, the album is sure to not wear out its welcome.

Stay tuned for release details this fall!

Hey folks, I just arrived back home from laying down amendments and additional background vocals for my hard rock band Overnight Sensation‘s upcoming Life’s a Bitch debut album, out later this year.

Guitarist Jan Tilles and I hopped the train to Jyväskylä on Wednesday evening, where we picked up my friend Christian Palin (Random Eyes, Beyond Belief, ex-Adagio), who served as background vocalist and the go-to guy for harmonies on our upcoming album.

Christian Palin belts out the melodies and supporting harmonies for us.

I finished all of my corrections and retakes yesterday, and Christian finished his backing vox today, leaving Jan to work on the piano arrangements for our ballad Nothing to Gain, along with solos for the rest of the songs on the album.  Nora Niemispelto from the all-girl band Hormonés will also be adding her acoustic guitar playing expertise tomorrow to our track Highway of Lost Souls.

Jan Tilles lays the smack down in the studio.

It was great to see my old friend Samuel Hoisko drop by today at Drumforest Studios in Viitasaari, Finland, where we were recording with engineer Nikke Niemispelto.  Samuel was the songwriter and guitarist from my very first real band here in Finland, power metal group Hallowed, back in 1999.

Samuel Hoisko from Hallowed back in the day dropped by to say hello.

So basically what we are looking at is 11 originals for the album, ready to be mixed after this weekend, for the Life’s a Bitch album.

Stay tuned for further updates as they develop!
