Long time no see. No wonder, as I am serving in the army for the past 6-7 months. Well, “serving” would be more appropriate, as I am currently in Athens, which allows me to keep on recording and mixing various stuff.

Anyway, enough with myself, let’s dive in this great piece of work I produced.

Skandal is a doom’n roll band I started working with 2 years ago for their “Year Of The Cicada” EP. The guys have visited my studio twice for the recordings, travelling all the way from UK in order to work together. George (who is also a member of Forsaken Memoriam) is a personal friend of mine and the main member behind this band. So, two seperate sessions and all-day/all-night long sessions to make everything work just in time.

So, not your typical stuff here, we recorded various unusual instruments like bendir, saz, a bagpige and even a throat “thai chant” singer for this EP. I was lucky enough to choose the session musicians myself, and they did a great work, adding a special flavour to the ending result.

Real drums on this one, recorded on two seperate takes (always a challenge to place everything the same way after 2-3 months have passed). Many hours on vocal tracking as well. Guitars, bass, everything was double and triple checked before I delivered to Mr. George Bokos (ex Rotting Christ) who did mixing and mastering, with great results.

Great work, that has taught me a lot. Produced, mixed and mastered during 2015.
