Together, Taskula and Mykkänen are Evemaster's co-leaders, and instead of being totally self-contained, they employed various session players and guest musicians on their late-'90s and early 2000s recordings. Evemaster first entered the studio in 1996, when they recorded a three-song demo cassette titled In Thine Majesty; subsequently, that demo was reissued on CD in Bulgaria by the small Topheth label, and in Portugal on Ancient Ceremonies. In 1998, Evemaster's first official full-length album, Lacrimae Mundi, was released on KTOK Records in Finland; the following year, Lacrimae Mundi came out in Poland on the AMP label. After doing some more recording in 2001, Taskula and Mykkänen hoped that the Emerald Factory label would release their next CD, but it turned out that Emerald Factory was suffering from insufficient funds -- and so, the Finnish metalheads continued to shop their material and ended up working with Low Frequency Records.
Evemaster returned to the studio in late 2002 and early 2003; between the recordings they had made in 2001, and the new songs, Low Frequency had enough material to assemble and release Evemaster's second full-length album, Wither. After coming out in Europe in 2003, Wither was released in the United States by Crash Music in early 2004. Unsatisfied with the original version of their debut, Evemaster recruited Children of Bodom drummer Jaska Raatikainen to help re-record the backing tracks. The results were issued in 2005 as MMIV Lacrimae Mundi.
" Enter 2008. New songs have been in the making since the release of "Wither" but due to many different things the band has been otherwise sleeping in ice. Finally during the winter/early spring of 2008 it was decided that new material will be recorded for an album. Mykkänen finalized the songs and in the beginning of June 3 days were booked in Drop Hammer Studios and drums were recorded.
During the summer and autumn other parts will be recorded. From Evemaster.net: "The working title of the next album is "Newtopia". It is a concept album revolving around a dystopian dream or a fall of this one pitiful man... The working titles of the songs are: 1. Enter Newtopia 2.
New Age Dawns 3. Humanimals 4. Losing Ground 5. The Great Unrest 6.
The Sweet Poison 7. Harvester of Souls 8. Fevered Dreams 9. Absolution" Check the studiodiary for photos and video: http://www.evemaster.net/studio-III.html Read more on Last.fm.
