J.T. LEHTONEN released his debut album “Land of Dust” on April 7th, 2017. The story of the album began when J.T. Lehtonen built his own rehersal room and recording studio to the downtairs of His garage.
Material started forming riffs, ideas and unrecorded songs. Things became to get their form first so that J.T. Lehtonen played all the instruments himself using midi-drums. The tracks started to form but the midi-drums was something that needed to be changed. So J.T. asked Miika “Gas Lipstick” Karppinen (ex HIM) to play the drums for four tracks. After the proper groove drumtracks recorded the idea about the full album started to became clear. Then J.T started to proceed with the re-recordin more guitars etc. On that time “Kaasu” was busy on recording the HIM -album “Tears on Tape” so J.T. got another drummer to play some of the easier songs. By the time Kaasu came back to record drums for three more songs. Then J.T. engineered the album sound with help from Risto Niska.
