Metal band Vanguardian hailing from Jyväskylä Finland releases their third single “Pantheon” from their upcoming EP on Friday 11th of November.
“Of all the songs that ended up on this record, Pantheon was the first one that was ready for recording”
Pantheon is also the band’s first ballad-like composition that involved a lot of “studio magic”.
“Tino (drummer) recorded the drums with just one take, using just a couple of minutes of our studio time. After trying a couple of hours performing the vocals to the song, our singer (Markus) ended up throwing all the lyrics to the trash. It was a bold move considering that the next day was reserved for recording vocals to this particular song. Therefore Markus ended up writing all the lyrics from scratch the night before vocal recordings started.”
In spite of all the dramatic turn of events (or maybe because of them) Pantheon really holds a special importance to all the band members.
