    I couldn't watch both figures at the same time,

    which one to look at, even if the eye just looks one way.
    Thanks for the comments on the video, we are happy to hear your thoughts about it! Our name refers to few places, like the depths of oceans. But there is probably not a good sounding translation for it, so let's not bring it too much to light and rather leave it open to interpretations...

    In our band name "Hadal" refers to the deepest parts of the ocean, the Hadal Zone. "Sherpa" refers to the guides that will take you to those places, among others. There is no inside joke and we surely are not having a laugh at anyone. The forum member name "sherpa" is just a reference to our band. We have other songs on the album that are more "oceanic" than this one, so maybe the name works better when hearing them also.

    Not bad, maybe a bit more metal than I usually like to listen to, but not bad. I suspect you have been listening to a bit of Opeth or maybe Porcupine Tree.

    Incidentally I know the music is the important thing rather than the video, but I found that video really annoying and had to scroll it off the screen. I'd rather have no video at all, maybe just a still image, or else if you must have a video there should actually be things happening that are somewhat entertaining and a bit related to the music.

    We are pleased to tell you that the album mastering is now ready and we are really happy with it. We are going to release the CD anyway, regardless of how much money is raised, so don't be shy when selecting your perks. Also the T-shirt design is now ready, it looks like this:

    Clever design.

    Ummm... I hope your actual music CDs don't have the hole way off centre like the one in that drawing. Might make them hard to play.

    ^ I would recommend you to check out our campaign, the CD will sound better on your home stereo than on your computer speakers I have not used that sandpaper, unfortunately.


    So, five days left of our Indie GoGo campaign, please feel free to spread the word and participate! We are almost done with the album artwork, any day now the factory will start printing CD's and our campaign CD perk supporters are the first to receive it. Here is a preview of the outside art, where you can also see the song titles:
