New releases info

Just a couple quick updates about what I've been up to lately with Deterior.

Recording is still trucking along; the guitar work is about one-fourth finished. Since it's the most time-consuming part I expect it to be another few weeks before I move to vocals, so things are a bit behind schedule (which figures). Recording should be done by mid-March as long as real life doesn't get in the way too much. Hopefully by then I'll have ironed out the lyrics, track titles, and artwork. And the guitars actually don't sound like garbage this time!

Which brings me to my second bit of news: I'm going to be working on an official remaster of Men Like Gods over the next few months, because it doesn't deserve to have such a horrible mix. I've learned a lot about more-professional mixing techniques over the past few months, so I hope to give that album the more dignified sound it should have had the first time around. (I partly blame that stupid distortion pedal.) That's second priority, so I'll be working on it off-and-on, but expect that sometime this year as well.
