What do I say? I have been extremely lacking in time to update the site. The good news is that one of the primary reasons for this is alot of work and activity on the Last Will front. Yes, for once I can say that we are finally doing something! Here’s a brief timeline:
May ’06 – I got a new job within USS. I now work steady daylight Monday through Friday, which means that a life is now possible.
July ’06 – Last Will inducts two new members, Jason Eiben on bass and Jason Iampietro on guitar. Both very capable, but both in need of some polishing.
November ’06 – It was agreed, mostly from myself, that Ryan would have to be let go from the band. To make a long story short, he was having a very short amount of free time. His main band, Singine, was recording a new album in the studio and this was eating up too much time for him to be any value to us. I decided that in order to keep the project going and prospects and feelings high and positive it was best to get someone who was simply going to show up, even if there was a lack of skill. Feelers and ads were put out… tryouts began for a new drummer.
December ’06 – After a few tryouts, and many thanks to those who tried out, we decided to go with Brian Piktel. His drumming is solid, although it will take a little bit of time to get him up to full Last Will standards. What he lacked in skill he more than made up for in enthusiasm, drive, willingness to learn, and ability to make practices. He was a perfect fit.
So right now we are doing 1 thing: building and rehearsing our set list for our first live show. Once we have some material down with the drummer I’ll throw a list down here as to what you could expect from the first show. I’m hoping for our first show sometime in April. At least that’s my guess. But things are going well and we honestly are seeing the most activity in the band since 2000 – Demos from the Abyss era. With the addition of the new drummer there is alot of positivity coming out. We also took some pictures a few days back, some of which are proliferating this website, which is finally somewhat updated.
