How long does it take to go from a song to an album from scratch to the fully recorded version?
Also this depends on mood, flow and the condition of the muses. There were albums that took us one year to write and record and others, which seemed to ask for eternities. Especially in a structure like a band many things contingent on the chemistry within and the way you are tuned in with each other. Even if creativity is not necessarily depended on your own well-being and the right idea can find you while being shattered on the floor, the implementing and translation of it works better in a supportive setting.
