Studio report
printer friendly

We have returned from our studio- sessions at the Double Noise Studios, Tilburg. The recordings went really well. We recorded 8 new songs and Necrovore's "Divus de Mortuus". It was the first time we worked with Gerben, who was in his early days the guitarist of the local band Excision. A band with whom we have shared many stages. As he knew Pentacle for many years now (he even joined us on stage for one gig to play some songs with us when I had injured my finger and couldn't play bass) we had full confidence in him for puting the right sound down on "tape". On the first day we set up our gear, did the soundcheck and recorded 5 songs. The next day we did the remaining 4 and did some extra guitars after which I did the vocals. I tried some different things, but all in all it went pretty fast. Then we started working on the sound of the several instruments (Gerben had already done a lot of work during the different stages of the recording...). First it was the drumkit and some bassguitar. The next day we continued with the bass after which we did the guitars. The vocals where the last thing we worked on. Then the mixing for "Divus..." started. This and the mastering took the whole day. There were some technical problems with Gerben's computer, but after some time he figured out what it was and we could continue. In the meanwhile it was almost 23.00 hours and we had to quit. After 3 days hard work the session ended. It was a good experience for all the 4 of us as we hadn't recorded anything with this line-up. The atmosphere was pretty relaxed and everyone did his utmost best to make it all work. The only real setback we experienced was that I could only record the vocals for the Necrovore song as time was running out for us. I had hoped to record every day some tracks, but soundchecking took more time than expected. As usual we had not enough time to record everything we wanted. It's not really a problem as the recordings (except for "Divus...") won't be released at all, though it would have helped me a lot. It is just great to hear our new songs recorded in a decent way, so they can blast they way they are intended to. At last we have some very good recordings to work with and to prepare us 100% for the upcoming album. Way better than using the old cassette! Way more expensive too...

Possessed tribute "Seven Gates of Horror" is soon to be released
printer friendly

Call me misinformed or rather not informed at all, but I was quite suprised to read a review on the Voices from the Darkside Website that the Possessed tribute "Seven Gates of Horror" is soon to be released on the Dutch label Karmageddon Media. I didn't even knew this label was going to release the album at all and it seems it will be available next week too! What a suprise! I guess Dark Realm is going to cover both the North- and Southern American territory, but I don't know this for sure. For those who have missed the line-up, here it is:

1. Sadistic Intent (with Jeff Becerra) - "The Exorcist"
2. Impious - "Fallen Angel"
3. Cannibal Corpse - "Confessions"
4. Pentacle - "The Beasts of the Apocalypse"
5. Vader - "Death Metal"
6. Diabolic - "No Will to Live"
7. God Dethroned - "Satan's Curse"
8. Absu - "Swing of the Axe"
9. Sinister - "Storm in My Mind"
10. Angel Corpse - "Burning in Hell"
11. Krabathor - "Evil Warriors"
12. Houwitser - "March to Die"
13. Amon Amarth - "The Eyes of Horror"

I wonder why a band like Hypnosia (RIP) isn't included at all as they recorded "My Belief" for this purpose too. Anyway, this record will be available on February the 23rd. At last, GET IT!!!!!!!!!!

Greetings and thank you Maniacs!

Greetings Maniacs!

I would like to thank everybody involved in the Voices from the Darkside festival. Hails to Frank Stöver (first time in 10 years!!!), Count Gothmog, Ramon Claassen, Ingurgitating Obliveon (thanks for the backline!), Bloody Sign (it was great meeting you again Nathaniel!), Pavor, Secrets of the Moon, Morrigan and Dew Scented. Thanks to Martin van Drunen for joining us on stage to perform "Witch of Hell". Nice to have you back! And not to forget the fans who raged the whole festival!!! Thanks for staying until the end and keeping supporting us, even when there was no beer anymore!!! It was a great happening and we enjoyed it a lot. We are very sorry we had to shorten our set with 5 songs. The festival was going late and we had to end our set premature because of the curfew. We really would have liked to play some other tunes for you, but that wasn't possible anymore. I hope nobody is angry because of this, but it was out of our hands. Anyway, thanks for everything!!!!

At the end of this month we are going to record a demo with all our new songs, including Necrovore's "Divus de Mortuus". This recording will take place at the Double Noise Studio, Tilburg. The purpose of this session is more of a personal matter. We are not going to release these recordings. We want to check out the new material in the studio before the real album is going to be recorded. More like a pre-recording. It'll be interesting for Alex too, because it will be his first studio-experience. We are really looking forward to hear our new songs in a studio-environment.

When everything will work out as we want to we'll have another gig with Peru's Death Metal gods Mortem! Again, this gig will take place in De Pazzop, Bladel at Saturday March the 20th. Things are looking pretty bright right now, so let's hope everything goes well. Pulmonary Abcess will be support for this gig.
