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.

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.
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...

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 ...
