fuck me was that a session! apologies for the delayed posting but my hands have only just recovered from the beating they sustained. typing was not an option! the tracking had taken a solid three-weeks and went extremely well. i had approached the kit slightly different this time around.there is a great blend of power and more power! i have expanded my kit some what but not just for the sake of expanding it but for the addition of new sounds that the tracks have benefited from.half the session was trying to get the right sounds and experimenting with different drumheads and cymbals. also used an array of snare drums depending on the track we were working on. my kit is a custom built yamaha maple custom absolute which fuckin kix ass. cheers gav. i have also started to use sabian cymbals which are just incredible.i went down to there warehouse to meet up with the head of sabian artist relations for europe jerome marcus who is one of the nicest guys you'll meet in the industry. he kind of like worked out what my needs were after i told him the style of the new songs . i was just breaking to many fuckin cymbals man. he sorted me out big time with big cymbals that sound amazing.
even though the session went well it was physically and mentally quite draining but som and dr lerock got me through it in one piece. i will be back in drum mode in december when we start recording b-sides. i will be posting as much as i can while som gets on with the guitar tracking( which i must say sound RAAAWWWKKKK) .
