- Maegi's debut album, final preparations before the actual recordings
09.09.2012 | HANSI KÜRSCH, CHRIS BOLTENDAHL AND MORE
Wow, I didn' realize that it was over two months since I last posted an update here. Well, first of all, my new project, Maegi (www.themaegi.com) is now featuring Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian) and Chris Boltendahl (Grave Digger) as well.
The progress is steady and I am done with recording most of the album, except for keyboards and vocals. Next will be the mixing part, and I am hoping to present you some samples sometime in October. Again, sorry for the slow updates but most of my updates go to Maegi's website (link above) or Maegi's facebook pages (www.facebook.com/maegimusic). So, don't be shy, come join the community =).

Tim "Ripper" Owens (Judas Priest, Iced Earth, Yngwie Malmsteen and others) is one of the guest singers on Maegi's debut! Yay!
05.06.2012 | STEINBERG ENDORSEMENT
Great news! Steinberg is now a supporter of Maegi and the album will be recorded using Steinberg's great DAW, Cubase 6.5.
I always adored the accessibility of Cubase, especially their MIDI interface. I was already using Cubase 5.5 for my recording, editing and mixing needs, supported with some 3rd party VST plug-ins. With the implementation of their new, and quite powerful drum editing module, I don't need to migrate my projects to any other workstation anymore.
To be sincere, this is an already established collaboration becoming official. Keep an eye for updates and podcasts regarding Steinberg - Maegi cooperation
29.05.2012 | ZAK STEVENS AND JERRY OUTLAW
Maegi's debut will feature great names from the metal scene as guest. The first two names are announced. Zak Stevens (Savatage, Trans Siberian Orchestra, Circle II Circle) and Jerry Outlaw (Jon Oliva's Pain) will have guest spots on the upcoming album.
Also, Maegi's website, www.themaegi.com, is now open!!!
11.05.2012 | MAEGI UPDATES
I have been silent for over two months now. Don't think that I stood still and became lazy. On the contrary, a lot of things have happened! First of all, Maegi became a solid project. Actually, it became the biggest thing I have ever made, including Dreamtone & Iris Mavraki's Neverland projects =). I have worked on inviting my guests, recording demos for the album and writing the lyrics etc.
So far, the album artwork and band logo are complete. I won't be announcing my guest artists and the artwork / album title until mid summer for PR reasons. I don't want the album to grow old fast.
All I can tell is that the tracks will visit several places in Europe and USA =).
Oh, and Maegi's website is under construction and you will be able to learn more at www.themaegi.com
Until that time, I have opened a Facebook group as well. Please be kind and join my crowd at www.facebook.com/maegimusic . Maegi is very important for me and I hope you will like what you hear, especially if you are into power-prog metal =).
