Welcome or Welcome Back!

This is a blog created/kept unkempt by the band A Relative Term to express the process of recording their next full length album. They will poke each other in the eyes, whack each other's noses, butt heads repeatedly, and run in circles on the floor for your enjoyment.

Fire and Time

We began recording "All You Are" this past week which actually stretched into three sessions. Jake recorded somewhere close to 53 harmonizing guitar tracks. When Peter played the bass, the walls shook and glass cracked. The whole time I couldn't stop thinking about how this particular song has, in my mind, become a corner stone to the album. It can be difficult to balance power with frailty, speed with patience, despair with elation, and this song aims to embrace all of that. A hopeful fatalist. Something I think this album will try to draw out as we continue to chase it down the path of where ever we're leading it.

In the meantime though, a pause. "Weightless Mass" is an instrumental piece that may or may not make it all the way to the finished album. We've paired it with an hand painted film by Jax Deluca.

"...it smelled like cool air and metal and space. It smelled of fire and time."

p.s. as you might imagine, it looks best when you bump the picture up to HD.
