A lot has happened since our last post here! The recording process of the album has now been complete for 4 days, save for a few minor overdubs and effects that were recorded on Wednesday. We moved our amps, drums and sundry musical instruments out of the studio yesterday and will now leave David and Cedric to work on mixing. The drum sound seems to require most monkey work, however, from the teasers that we were allowed a quick listen to, it’s going to sound brilliant. We are also really happy with how guitars and bass sound, as well as vocals, although the true colour of the latter will only shine through once the entire mixing process is complete.
We’re going to have a short break (maybe a week?) from the CD so that we can approach it with a fresh mind set when it comes to hearing the mixes and then decide what we want changed at mastering level. Meanwhile, our good friends Cedric, Clint and Max from Gloryhole will be creating the artwork for us. We have basically given them carte blanche as to what they may do, as we are sure that their creative juices flow best this way, and are expecting something awesome from them.
We shall keep you updated with any progress, and promise to post a few pics and a video on here sometime next week. We have loads of footage from the studio, now there is the slight matter of sifting through it and choosing the best, and most idiotic. Also, be on the lookout for a new blog at a new URL, but more of that later!
Also, check out our best mates Knockturn Alley’s new drummer at this link: http://knockturnalleyband.com/blog/2009/07/new-medusa-review-drummer-video/
Their album, Medusa, a bone crushing piece of melodic metal in my humble opinion, has been receiving rave reviews from around the globe, and this is very well deserved.
Finally, if you’re local, or are currently in Malta, do not forget the gig at SKY club tomorrow. The much expected return of Coalition to the Sun (formerly Tendency Charge), coupled with the sheer ear splitting force of Abysmal Torment and groovy takedowns from In The Name Of ought to make for a great night of uncompromising metal music.
