Powerglove to start recording new album soon!

From the Powerglove MySpace blog:

And so it is, that after many months of arranging music and watching
professional Starcraft, we’ve now ended up with about two releases
worth of songs. We would probably hemorrhage with pure glory if we
tried to just record them all at once, so we’re going to split this
batch into two albums.

And so it is, that after many months of arranging music and watching

worth of songs. We would probably hemorrhage with pure glory if we
tried to just record them all at once, so we’re going to split this
batch into two albums.

The
first one will be all of the tv, cartoon and movie themes that we grew
up with, smelted into shimmering metal. The Pokemon theme song is on
this one as some of you know, along with This is Halloween from The
Nightmare before Christmas (one of several Danny Elfman songs we’re
doing on this one, a favorite composer for sure), The Flintstones, The
Real Adventures of Johnny Quest (if you haven’t heard that one look it
up, it’s awesome), and a song that for the moment I’m calling In the
Hall of Inspector Gadget. Also, we have this psychotic arrangement of
Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid with 220bpm shredding and steel
drums that will make you pass out from laughing and headbanging at the
same time. In the next few weeks we’ll reveal some more about it as we
get started with the recording. As to the amount of songs, I honestly
don’t know yet how many we want to put on this release. It could be an
EP, it could be an album, only time will tell.

And the second
one is back to video game music! We’ve got most of the core material
done for that one as well, so we’ll have plenty of time to kick it
around and refine it. I’ll save revealing those tracks for later, but I
recently did an arrangement of Snake Man from Mega Man 3 that I can’t
wait to hear live, should it make the cut. I’d love to have the first
one come out later this year, and the second one in 2010, but we’ll see
how that works out with touring etc.

We just got all of our new
gear together and we’ll be setting it up and getting our tones starting
this weekend. Our drum and bass sounds are already way better than
Metal Kombat, and Saturday the never ending quest for the perfect
recorded guitar tone begins anew.

I can’t really generalize on
the sound for this album, but there are definitely more dark moments
than Metal Kombat, and the gleeful moments of cheer are more intense
and ecstatic. It is also heavier and shreddyer, but every band says
that. So don’t take our word for it now, you see when the time comes.
