Hey there!

In the album 3 post it says that writing is about 60% complete.

Have the ideas flowed thick and fast this time? Have you ever/do you suffer from writer's block eg. "Oh shit, how the fuck shall I improve over Worlds Beyond The Veil?!?" :lol:

Did you already have lots of ideas that could have made it onto Worlds but didn't because of one reason or another?

An argument with a friend provoked these questions. Basically they said that Mithras will never top WBTV coz it's too damn good, a masterpiece etc. and I disagree; I think Mithras can make a significant improvement and development over WBTV. I think there is more chance of it now that Sean is drumming, allowing Leon to concentrate on guitars.

It's not good to wish life away but roll on December 2005 or whenever Album 3 appears! :twisted:

The ideas have been a steady flow, and some ideas are back from before Worlds... was finished.

I do wonder how i will improve over 'Worlds..' considering how much so many people liked it and how much i liked it (we've literally been blown away by the response), but as this album isn't doing the same things and is coming from a different place and thus non comparable it's more a question of how happy i am with the album and whether i think it's all it can be. I don't want to dissapoint anyone, and i hope that most of the people who liked 'Worlds...' will find something in album 3 (god this not giving anything away lark is tough going!).

Obviously we aim to raise our game again, have a different sound and take it to another level, but mainly it's about letting people take a unique experience from the music which is why i do it really.

I didn't have any ideas per se that didn't make it onto 'Worlds...' but i originally planned to take some of the ideas a bit further, particularly the instrumentals. As it was i ended up totally happy and the album became complete without any extra additions.

I'll add my share here incase it answers any parts un answered.As i`m in the band too you know.hahahahaha. I find that the album feel is pretty easy once we have decided how the concept is gonna run leon and i are working together to get the feel on the following story right, i find that when i concentrate on the concept i explode with ideas, i get pretty excited really, one push and i`m off.Lyrically i`m gonna try and get a reall story linked together from song to song this time. I don`t think its a case of trying to top worlds just evolve beyond it. Mithras is a journey, and it hasn`t finished yet!
:twisted:
