DECAPITATED haben sich aus dem Radio Gdansk Studio in Polen gemeldet, wo sie gerade den Nachfolger zum 2006er Album “Organic Hallucinations” einprügeln.
Das Album wird von Wacek Kieltyka und Sound Engineer Malta Arkadiusz Malczewski produziert. Die Drums werden gemeinsam mit Daniel Bergstrand (BEHEMOTH, DIMMU BORGIR, KEEP OF KALESSIN) aufgenommen, der sich auch um den Mix kümmern wird.
Drummer Kerim kommentiert: “Hi guys, I just wanted to tell you what is going on in the studio. Today is the second day of actual drum recording and it goes really well! We will probably could finish about 4 songs today. We will see how the next days will look like but I think we should finish drums earlier. We do not have any bigger problems so it feels good to record in this place. The acoustics of this room sounds great so I enjoy playing all these songs a lot. Today is also the last day with Daniel Bergstrand, who prepared the drum sound for us. And he definitely knows what he’s doing!!
When I listen to the songs right now I believe that this album will be strong. Different in some ways but I feel confident about the new material. Being part of the new line up and recording the first album after the long break is definitely a big thing for me. After all those shows we played together, this is our new challenge. It’s not easy but I like challenges!
So that’s it for today. Stay tuned for more news coming up!
Prodzuent Wacek dazu: “Hi there,
We've just started the recording session of the new album at the studio of Radio Gdansk.
The studio is brilliantly equipped and has some wicked recording space. This time round we are working with Malta (Arek Malczewski) and Daniel Bergstrand who has been with us to set up the drums sound.
And so far everything has been going suprisingly well.
Right now Kerimh is finishing for the last two tunes. I must say the drums sound really cool. Daniel has surprised us with his approach towards recording using millions of, often weird, solutions, e.g. a piano or the corridor of Radio Gdansk:)
We are recording fully live drums - no triggers or plastic sounding stuff whatsoever, which, especially for Kerimh, renders the session more demanding than he had expected; but because of this, in my opinion, the sound will be original and will help us to avoid the so-called 'machine gun effect'. We are going to record eight songs altogether and the album will be about forty minutes long. It looks like this time our recording style is pretty 'old-school'- with live drums and no recording of double guitar tracks, which means one guitar per side.
Daniel is just on his way back to Sweden now and we are starting to record the skins to the last two songs so I gotta be going now.”
