So, we're now four days into the tracking of our new album, Rusted Eyes Awake. We spent nearly thirty hours preparing and tracking drums at my studio, Arcane Digital Recording, on the 15th and 16th of May 2008. We're very pleased and Mike worked really hard to learn to record to a click which is sometimes a rarity in this genre of death metal. I think it came out great and really solid. I spent the 17th prepping my guitar gear and setting up to get tones. I took it kinda easy as the drum sessions were exhausting and I will begin tracking today and hopefully finish over the next two or three days (between mix sessions for other bands). I'm planning on just possibly using the Engl Powerball through an oversized Mesa Boogie 2x12 and a Krank 4x12. Where as before we have mixed the Powerball and a Bogner Uberschall. I'm hoping to make some darker tones with this brighter amp through the use of the Krank cabinet and some micing techniques. I may end up doing some more tracks with the Bogner or some other amp, but I'm not sure yet. But I'm hoping to just run through with this setup and have it come out awesome. Not sure what I'm gonna use for leads yet either. Should come out great though!


.... and here is some video footage of us in the studio tracking drums
