|Studio Report Day 13, 14, 15 @ Empire Studio|
Hello everyone, it’s been a week since we last checked in here from the studio session at Empire Studio and we’ve made a lot of progress since last time. Not only in the studio, but we manage to pull of a gig as well in the middle of everything.
Marcus have finished all rhythm guitar tracking and have only a couple of leads to do. We have started to track vocals as well!
we’ve got over 100 GB of video, covering every phase of the recording, will make a kick ass video report in the future when everything is tracked!
|Studio Report Day 12 @ Empire Studio|
We’re had a couple of days off from the studio because we’re rehearsing for a gig coming up in a couple of days. Today thou, Marcus had time to record guitars before and after rehearsing. Two and a half songs was tracked and we will continue later this Easter weekend. Horns up!

|Studio Report Day 9 @ Empire Studio|
The other day ( # 8 ) was a really short one, Marcus tracked one more song so it’s not much to write about, so let’s skip ahead to day 9.
7.00 pm. This evening was devoted to bass tracking and we started to dial in the bass amp, an Ampeg SVT Classic all tubes with an 8×10 cabinet. Joakim had a bunch of pedals he wanted to try out to see if it would improve the sound. Compressors and overdrives. The amp was already set up since earlier and we just had to make small adjustments and added one more mic to the cabinet. We ended up with a Sennheiser MD421 and a Yamaha Subkick. The subkick added that extra low end and will be awesome to blend in with the 421. We even tried the bass through a 5150.
8.30 pm. The bass sound is all set and it sound amazing, as usual. Everything with this recording sound just right from the moment we mic our instrument. It’s totally awesome! Joakim ended up with the Ampeg and a Multi Comp pedal from EBS.
11.00 pm. Joakim had a really good flow and managed to track 4 songs tonight.

|Studio Report Day 6 @ Empire Studio|
6.00 pm. Still some guitars to track on Fed By Fire. There are some harmonies Marcus wanna try out for this song. He has brought his ESP Viper Baritone to see if it works out for the harmonies but the strings were too old and he didn’t have any new string with him. He decides to use his Gibson Explorer with the Engl Powerball for the harmonies. All rhythm guitars are tracked with a Peavy 6505+ in case I forgot to mention it earlier.
8.30 pm. Marcus wants to go home early. He’s feeling pretty beat after a long day at his dayjob. The harmonies on Fed By Fire are ready and we will return to the studio on sunday.
