Matias solo on Empyreon record!!

Post by MikeKhalilov » Fri Sep 18, 2009 1:18 am

Hey Guys,

I know I don't post here too often, but I just released a new record with my band Empyreon. Matias plays a mind blowing guitar solo on one of the tracks called "Of Mortals and Men". Buy the whole album if you'd like! I have link here but I think it's on over a dozen sites by now...Digital download only for now :)

I have a question about things like that, if i am doing a record and i want to a musician participates in a track, like Matias did it on your record, i must pay to the artist for do that, right??

The reason that i quest is.. cause i want to Timo Tolkki participate in the record that i am doing.. xD but i think it's just imposible for me hahaha.


PD: sorry about my english =(

It can be for pay, for those that are willing, or by volunteer, for those that are willing.

I think that sort of depends on the musicians.

If you persuaded Timo Tolkki to participate on your record (what might be possible if the music is interesting for him), you should count with paying for his flight tickets, hotel etc. at least :)

Maybe Mike could tell us about Mathiass - what did he ask for to record :)

Thanks to internet that is not always necessary. For example a guitar solo can very well be recorded here in Finland and for example sent to someone in the us :)

It was a funny story actually. I emailed Matias one day and asked him if he was interested in playing a guest solo on one of our tracks. Within 10 minutes time, I had already sent him the track and he was already working on it in his studio :)

But yes, Matias recorded it himself and then I just plugged it into my mix. Thank god no one needs to fly anywhere for recordings these days!

Yeah, all that seems pretty good, and even excellent, but cant afford to buy the album yet, I've just bought the latest Ensiferum, next Epica coming soon and still sparing for Sonata...so maybe I'll see for it the same time I'll buy the new Kamelot when it comes out!

Yes, indeed I like it! I am also a Megadeth fan and this cover reminds me of some of theirs!
Is there some meaning behind this cover, some apocalyptic reference or some such?

Well of course, in a way. I have always been a post apocalypse movie buff, our vocalist Aaron was the one who wrote these. For example, the first half of the lyrics of the title track "Beyond Perception" read:

Boiling seas will climb
Across horizon lines
Annihilation
These weakened walls will fail

Bolts of lightning soar
Across a southern sky
Oh, the fury
What will become of us?

Prechorus:
This is all we have tonight
Take my hand
Watch the rain with me
This is where we draw the line
Our heads held high as we welcome destruction.

The end is not unknown, now...
...beyond perception...
