Studio Report

Hello dear fans...

I know you didn't have much news from us lately, but don't be afraid, the work never stopped and we finally finished recording the album. In the past weeks we were busy composing and recording the keyboards and the backing vocals. Once again Robin Roy has done us the great pleasure of adding his voice to Sonia's voice.

The coming weeks will be devoted entirely for the mixing and the mastering of the album. The visual design of the cover is currently in progress and is going well.

Our project draws to a close and we all look forward to present this 3rd album that will be, without a doubt, the best work of Forgotten Tales. No one will remain indifferent, you can be certain.

Thank you all.

Marty

Studio Report

Hi everyone…

I finally finished the recording of the vocal tracks and I must tell you that everything went very well. It's true that in some moments, things went very hard but I always gave my best and and it gave excellent results. For the last song, we had to proceed differently because Marty hadn't finished to compose the melody. I had to learn it all along the recording.
Despite all these hours I spent there, not everything is yet finished for me. I'll be back in a couple of weeks to record the backing vocals.

It's now Marty's turn to be back in studio. He just began the recording of his solos and it should take him a couple of days. Let's wish him good luck.

See you soon...

Sonia

Hello you all, dear fans,

I am very pleased to be able to give you some news about me. I know Forgotten Tales and I were very quiet in the latest months but it was because we had much to do. All our attention and energy are now concentrated in the making and the development of the 3rd album that we want to be of the highest quality. I can assure you that not any time I have forgotten you.  Throughout this long process, you are constantly present in my thoughts and in my heart. Everything we do is, above all for you!

Last week, Martin had fun on camera to capture my impressions and some moments of my recording session that I am willing to share. So here's a little overview of what happens at Studio Menzo.

January 11th 2010

Hello,

After several weeks searching for a new designer for the cover art of the 3rd album, we can finally reveal the name of the artist who has been chosen.

Lucie Fortier, pastellist and portraitist of Quebec City will be part of the team of Forgotten Tales. She really impressed us by the quality of her work and the good use of shadows and light found in her paintings.

We are now finalizing various sketches that were submitted to the artist.

To be continued ...

December 26th 2009

Hi to our fans…

We’d like to take a little time, Forgotten Tales and its team, to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very happy 2010. The recording of the album continues and will be released later in 2010. Thanks for your patience and constant support.

Hi Everyone...

We are back from an amazing weekend of two shows where we shared the stage with Pagan’s Mind and Stratovarius. We thank the fans who came in large numbers in Quebec and Montreal for those great moments and the energy they have gave us.

Studio report

The recording of the bass tracks advance at the speed of light. Pat gave us an evening of 4 songs without even flinching. There is only one song left to do but not the least. He will finish his job with the fastest of the album, (188 BPM).

The next step will be cleaning and editing the drum and the bass tracks before I begin the recording of the guitars. And that's where I come into play and I can’t wait.

Just to make your mouth water, here are some video clips of Pat during a recording session.

Stay tuned ...

Marty

Hi Dear Fans,
 
The 2nd recording session has been productive but a little tougher than the previous one.
Heat and fatigue were hard to handle. There were 2 songs: one with a slow tempo and one really fast and with complex rhythms. That one gave me more problems and sweat but I’m still alive!
 
A little day off and I’ll be back soon

See ya!

Pat

Studio Report

Hi FT fans!

I just finished my first evening in the studio to record the bass tracks.
Everything went very well, no major problems but the heat. We can say that it reproduced the feel of a live show :)

I had time to do 2 songs, the first mid-tempo and the other a bit faster  ...
It has increased the temperature a bit. We even had time to do the editing of the 2 songs.
In summary, it was a very good first day and I hope it will be the same for the rest.

Photos and videos from the studio will follow soon.

See ya

Pat

August 11th 2009

Hi fans.

We are pleased to provide you with another song taken from the last live show of Forgotten Tales in Quebec City. This is Wind Oh Wind piano-vocal version. This song will appear on the 3rd album as a bonus track. Further details will be revealed in the coming weeks.

 

Keep in touch.

August 3rd 2009

Just a little word to tell you that we’re back in studio today with the editing of the drum tracks. We’re planning to work on it until the end of the week. The bass arrangements are now completed and Pat will be ready for the recording.

Hello everybody

Being on a break from the studio we take this opportunity to announce the addition of a new talented young guitarist as a member of Forgotten Tales. Marco Lavoie, whose hard-work and dedication to the success of our May 13th show as a guest guitarist convinced us to invite him to become a full-time member. Although he just recently joined the band he will get to participate to a few songs on the upcoming album. To learn more about him, visit his page.

Talk to you soon!

July 21th 2009

Studio Report

Recording of the drum tracks wrapped up last wednesday in only five studio sessions with Mike. We are taking a two weeks break due to the studio not being available during which we will take the time to make some final changes on the bass lines. Stay tuned...

 

Also, during our special show on May 13th we played acoustic versions from two of our songs and also covered a few classics from European metal bands. We got a few videos from that show which we will make available in the upcoming weeks starting with these two:

Run To The Hills - Iron Maiden

Reach Out For The Light-Avantasia

(Guest singer Robyn Roy, back vocals on "All The Sinners" and lead singer of Iron Maiden tribue The Troopers)

Talk to you soon!

Recording News

Like we recently promised, here are some news from the recording of our third album! We entered studio on July 8th and since then Mike and the rest of the team are working hard to record the drums tracks.

Everything is going well so far, Mike already completed 6 songs. And talking about him here are some comments directly from the man behind the drumkit! We will be back soon with more news straight from the recording studio!

  • July 8th 2009: Settle in Menzo studio, drum tuning with Luc Gaulin (ex-Moonlyght, Passage) and sound checks all night... sounds awesome!
  • July 9th 2009: Recording the first song. Not an easy song to render because of many changes in the rythmm and the intense non-stop groove.
  • July 10th 2009: Recorded three songs! One fast song (188bpm), another more traditional power metal style and the last one a much more progressive. Very productive night; 3 takes for each song and we were done!
  • July 12th 2009: Recorded two songs. One mid-tempo with lots of very complex rythms and the second one, another fast song (188bpm again). Arduous night, these songs are hard to play right even though I practiced them for months. We still got the job done though!
