Never Say Never

Sweet. Beejeezus.

We had the pleasure of working with these guys (and gal) last weekend and it went super smooth. The songs have an old-school hardcore feel with a metal touch to them topped off by clear, aggressive female vocals. This 4-song EP will be blasting like crazy :).

Happy holidays for now!

Phoenix’ Ashes..

..Are done! The final mixes sounds absolutely retardedly awesome and will be send to the mastering engineer to be mastered in 3 weeks! Keep an eye out for these guys for sure!

Up next is Never Say Never. We’ll def keep you posted on their status as well!

Four-one-two :)

So hey all! :)

It’s been a while since we’ve updated this blog and it almost seems like nothing’s going on, which is a contrast to reality. We’ve been buuuusy these last few weeks and things keep heading into the right direction which is awesome.

A small recap of the last few weeks: SHSS and Rise a Thousand finshed their EP, which both turned out awesome. Phoenix’ Ashes decided to throw in another song for their EP while they’re at it and we fnished that one up as well. Upcoming weekend is the final mix session for their EP before mastering and it’s going to sound rad (check out a little movieclip they made during the last recording session on our media page).

Next band to enter the studio is Eindhoven’s  Never Say Never who play a mix of oldschool hardcore and metal, it’s going to be raaaaaaaad! :)

We’ll keep you posted!

Four-one-one..

Hey y’all, so here’s a little 411 on the current status of this project.

Four bands have already participated and have all recorded an EP with us, which all will turn out great. We’ll be posting some sneak previews next week so you can hear the near-end results.

Anyhow, this week we have been busy with preparing for our exams which will take place on Wednesday and Thursday. This project is among the things we will be discussing during our exam, and we’re glad we can only talk positively about it :). As we are preparing for our exams, there won’t be any recording going on at the studio, we’ll only doing a little mixing so we have some material to show the examiners. The upcoming days we’ll be trying to get around to dot the i’s and cross the t’s regarding the studio, construction-wise :).

So in a week or two we’ll start scouting for 4 to 6 bands again that can be a part of this project.
If you happen to be in a band yourself and are interested in participating with your band, drop us a line at info at wearetheartillery dot com and we’ll get the conversation going.

Again, we’ll keep you updated on the progression of the whole dealio.

Rise a Thousand #2

We finished the last vocal session today and my oh my, these three tracks are going to be insane! These guys are able to blend crushing metal with catchy sing-a-longs intuitively which will sound very refreshing to most ears.

SHSS #3

We finished tracking the last guitar parts, vocals and gang vocals the last 2 days. It actually went faster than planned :).
Shit’s go’n be hot, be on the lookout for it!

Rise a Thousand..

.. is B-A-N-A-N-A-S.

We just tracked 3 songs this weekend with this incredibly talented band. We’ll be finishing the vocal parts this Wednesday. We’ll keep y’all posted!

SHSS #2..

Last weekend the boys from SHSS came in to lay down some tracks. The drum tracking went very well, so did the bass. While tracking the first guitar we encountered a minor setback with a faulty DI (it’s always the DI, always..) but we could live without it, so we did. Oh, and while we were at it, the boys decided to throw in another song so we ended up recording 3 songs instead of 2.

It’s starting to sound big and nasty and abrasive and whatnot already and it’s only going to get better (or worse, depending on your taste ;))! Next week these guys are coming back to finish these tracks with some more guitars and of course the vocals, it’s going to be rad..

This weekend it’s Rise a Thousand’s turn to lay down 2 of their tracks, we’re certainly excited!

Screw Houston, Start Screaming!

So yesterday we met up during their rehearsal and got to know them, their songs and their overall sound a bit better. It’s going to be fun recording these guys; we will be recording 2 songs.

Oh and, they’re actually the first band that we’ll record in our own (-brand new- ;)) studio for this project so that should be fun as well. We’ll be sure to keep y’all posted!

Burn Brighter..

So last week it was Burn Brighter’s turn to lay down them tracks for their upcoming EP (as well as the split CD ofcourse).

We all agreed that it’s safe to say this EP will do justice to Phil Spector’s term ‘wall of sound’. Keep your ears out for this EP, it’s going to be pretty ridiculous!
