20 Years Ago: VOMITORY release Redemption

...I remember we didn't have enough material, so everything was very stressful. Even when we were in the studio, we were actually considering making of mini-LP out of it. But then we wrote a couple more songs in the studio, and there was one cover song from GOD MACABRE, so we barely made it.

VOMITORY released their second album Redemption on this day in 1999.

...the first album "Raped In Their Own Blood" was recorded in a really cheap studio, we had really small budget and sound on that album really suffers but that was all we could afford at that moment. For the second one we received much bigger budget and we also got in touch with producer Henrik Larsson who we met at the tour few years back. He offered us a good deal and we recorded "Redemption" album that we were really satisfied with.

Redemption was their last album on Dutch label Fadeless. It was also the last with original vocalist Jussi Linna.

Basically it just didn't work out. There were difficulties with everything, not like we had fights or anything but things just didn't work out. The four other guys in the band had pretty much same thoughts and same kind of ideas about things, how we should sound or how we should try to make songs. When it came to tours there were no problems between four of us but the fifth member always messed things up, he didn't know anything, didn't show up in time... those were small kinds of annoying things that happened all the time so we finally got sick and tired of it. We discussed all those problems with him and he told us that he's going to change and everything is going to be better but when we went to the studio to record "Redemption" album it appeared to us that he wasn't involved and he wasn't a good songwriter or a singer either. If we wanted to continue the members in the band should be able to trust each other and be able to relay on each other and he was the guy who always wanted something else than four of us and because of it everything took much more time and energy.
