Band: two tales of woe
Tuning: A and drop G
Bass: F Jazz with SD quarter pound
This was done last year...
Not produced by me, the lads just asked me to mix it :-)
Check it out peoples!!
Many of you know that 2 years ago I started a project with a band called Chosen.
Back then we recorded the drums (in a big hall in northern ireland) and guitars (in komodo studios, also in NI), and due to many unforseen difficulties for the band, we ended up finishing everything else in 2012 in Westland Studios.
This is for all fans of metal, especially musicians, as the playing is on parr with the best in Ireland and internationally. (very little "protoolsing" was done at all, these guys are accurate.)
Dear (studio) diary
Ok so 2012 has been exhausting, with me having taken on so many of my own productions (as opposed to simply hiring out westland studios to other producers)
Having said that, it's been a lot of fun this year and I'm honoured to have worked with such talented bands and artists as Ian O'Doherty, Leaders of Men, Chosen, Stillpoint, Two Tales of Woe, Dichotomy, Sinside, Able Archer and many more. All fantastic musicians and people!
Also, through purchases, part payments, repairs, upgrades and exchanges I've managed to secure for myself, my studio and my clients a S**TLOAD of amps, cabs, speakers, guitars, fx, cymbals, plugins and outboard.
It's been hard work but i'd say it's been well worth it.
Also, 2012 has brought me the arrival in dublin of Darrell who runs MSB Mastering from the westland studios building!
Plan for 2013?
Breathe. Work hard. Research & Network. Work hard. Maybe a trip to uk, Work hard, update the plan.
Happy 2013 everyone!
Ps. Massive thanks to Kyle Walker from www.komodoimage.com for all his help with drumming, t-shirts and my websites!
