We surprised ourselves last time we worked on the new disc. Fred had a vague idea about a string arrangement on a track called "Silent Paintings Speak". Half an hour later he had made the arrangement, picked the sound and recorded it. That's not the way it should be! We're not a spontaneous band. Normally, when we have worked out a melody line, programmed it and picked out the sound we like at the moment, we play and listen to it a lot before putting it on tape. Having done enough adjustments and fine-tunings, the first idea might have turned into something completely different. That's how we usually work. Or should it be worked? Letting go of some control and letting in some spontaneity might ad a new flavour to our vulture machine music. (September, 15)

The last couple of weeks, we've been recording some background tracks for the next disc. Some lined guitars (raw electric ones and smooth clean ones), a lil' synth pad here and there and some percussion stuff. As always, some new exciting changes are being introduced in the recording process. What's it gonna be this time? It wouldn't be a surprise if we revealed it now, would it? (August, 23)

Don't miss Black Velvet Magazine # 53, with a review of The Vulture Punk N' Roll Machine -disc! Get it here! (August, 12)

Today we spent the entire day in our rehearsal spot without playing a single note. Instead, we re-organized our gear, brought in some new furniture and made the tiny space feel a bit less claustrophobic. The main reason of the operation was to get a better organized recording zone. With that done we can't sit on our sweet behinds, doing nothing but having too many cups of tea and even mo cookies and chocolate bars. Time to kick the recording-wheels into motion! Have a great summer(July, 21)

Nothing much has happened in the Zitter camp the last couple of months. The number of rehearsals are easily counted. Two brand new songs have been written and played. The good thing is that we got some inspiration some fortnight ago when we went to the Peace & Love festival to see the new Alice Cooper show. The man still knows how to rock! Anyway, we have taking up our recordings again and will see how things will work out in the future. Have a great summer! (July, 11)

Silence is overrated! That's why we've added a player so you have something to listen while visiting our site. Enjoy! (June, 1)

A new review of The Vulture disc could be found n' read in Ox-Fanzine # 71. No time to waste! Grab that German dictionary and pop over at once! (May, 1)

Sometimes you would like to have five more lines in the verse to be able to get the message intelligible, presented the clearest way possible. With the limited number of lines you need to say as much as possible in so few words as possible. Then there are the melodies. When you thought you had managed to squeeze the message into a manageable and comprehendible form, Fred starts complaining that the number of syllables in the lyrics doesn't match the number of syllables he uses when he sings his improvised lines. Or, that the sound of some words doesn't fit the melody or doesn't have the right feeling attached to them. Or, that some words are impossible to pronounce! Well, at least when they are to be sung. (April, 7)

We're about finishing the work with the lyrics for our new songs. It is always a painstaking process. First of all you need to work out the melody-lines for the vocals. With that done it's time to decide what the lyrics should be all about. The mood of the song is a good staring point. When you have the melodies and an idea what the song is gonna be about, the worst part is still to come; the search for the suitable words. We find ourselves in a neverending struggle with the words.

Check out the cool horror comedy I Död Och Lust (Through Death And Lust)! It is a very creepy story brought to life with the help of scary monsters and chilling effects. Goose bumps turned on! As if that ain't enuff. Between the horror scenes there is hilarious scenes making you laugh your sweet behind off! Or to be more correct, making you laugh like a maniac! Don't look at it on your own!
