The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated

Hey there, long time no see. Or read, or whatever. Sorry for the hiatus, which got a bit longer than I had planned. I’ve been shit busy, and also had some health issues. Mainly the fucking finger which bummed the living crap out of me, but also some weird flu-type-thing that just didn’t let go. Can’t remember being that sick in a LONG time.

So, what’s up?

Well, let’s start with the finger: The splint was removed last Thursday and the doctor said the fracture has healed very well. It’s a bit stiff still, but a few days ago I was recording some demo guitars for a new song and noticed that I was using my pinky again without even thinking about it. That made me a happy fucking camper indeed. On Saturday I’ll play my first show with all my fingers operational for the first time in 2 months with Railio, and in few weeks it’s time to share the stage once again with my bro and main man Mr.T. Colour me excited.

What have I been doing meanwhile?

Aside from playing some 3-finger shows here and there with Railio I have been writing. A LOT. I’ve been writing pretty much every day for few weeks now, and I have to say it’s been going great. I have 4 songs pretty much finished that are definitely going to be on the next Cain’s Offering-album and -holy shitballs mom- do they kick some serious ass. Haven’t been this excited about writing in years. I mean, it was great working on the Arion-album with the guys, but there I was only doing lyrics, and as much as I love writing lyrics I think I love writing music even more.

Aside those 4 songs there are 4 more that I’ve been working on with Timo, and I’m 100% sure that at least 2 of those songs are going to end up on an album. Whether it’s CO or Stratovarius, I don’t care. The main thing is that you guys and everyone else interested gets to hear them, as I think they are pretty damn good as well :)

I’ve set myself a goal to have the next CO album written by the beginning of September. It’s kinda scary as time flies by so fast, but I have been keeping a steady pace and so far the results have been more than impressive, at least IMO :)


I think I’ll have to sign off now, just wanted to let you guys know that I’m back, and with a vengeance :) Have a good wank or whatever it is you are planning to do, I’ll be posting some stupid shit here again, so if your life is empty and you have time to waste feel free to stop by. Bring beer.

    Anyway, Sir, ..*brings beer & red wine*.. , write another song that make me cry my soul out, and I'll kill you.. :D joking, so happy about it and just can't wait, you and Timo together are just outstanding ♥
    take care :)
