FireForce

Rage of War with FireForce We did the instrumental recordings in Belgium in Bob Briessinck’s Breeze Inc. Studios before the whole Corona thing started. He’s our sound engineer, and fortunately, he was available. He did a tremendous job. Vocal coaching is something different, though, and that’s why we went to Germany again, as we did…

Feanor

Power of the Chosen One with Gustavo Acosta After Manowar’Joey De Maio had their first platinum-awarded album ‘The Triumph Of Steel’ on his role as the guitar player, David Shankle departed from the band, leaving a multitude of fans with a thirst for more true metal. Now the guitar maestro closure that epic chapter with…

Everdawn

Cleopatra with Alina Gavrilenko We were lucky enough to get into the studio together and finish recording right before covid in Pennsylvania/New Jersey. At that point, we only had three days to record all vocals for 12 songs, with harmonies and layers. I had to sing for around 12 hours a day, so I’m amazed…

Electromancy

Robot Black Metal with Satyra Tricky is a word to describe what it’s like to write, record, and build robots to play a music release when you as a human have minimal hand use. It took me nearly 2 years to build the robots you hear on the album. All of the electronics are DIY,…

Drift Into Black

Patterns of Light with Craig Rossi Three years after departing from his former band of 18 years, Craig Rossi decided to spawn Drift into Black in 2017. A solo act that was supposed to be a project with Craig on vocals, guitars, and keyboards eventually turned serious after his debut EP Shadow People. That was…

Dira Mortis

Ancient Breath of Forgotten Misanthropy with Leszek Makowiecki The limitations are always there, not so much in the production and recording of the album, but more in writing and constructing songs for the album. I think that for my most hated there are moments so-called creative impotence because to come up with the right riff,…

Depths of Hatred

Inheritance with Depths of Hatred The album was already written and recorded before the restrictions, so it was not a problem, but we had to work via zoom with Christian Donaldson to finish it at the mixing stages. As far as conspiracy theories, flat earthers takes the whole cake. Humans and life inspired us in…

Death of a Legend

Part.1 with Trippy Death of a Legend is a massive rock’n’roll turmoil born in 2020 from Milano hardcore punk scene members. The lineup consists of Trippy on vocals, Mark on guitars, Zane on bass and Don Malasorte on drums. The band’s style mixes iconic groovy vibes of blues rocker Danko Jones with the rough edge…

DayGlo Mourning

Dead Star with Joe Mills DayGlo Mourning began with Joe Mills, Ray Miner, and our first bassist Matt Rayborn. We all meet through Craigslist ads for musicians wanting to play something in the doom genre. Matt was with us for the 1st year and recorded the first album with us. He eventually decided to move…

Crystal Viper

The Cult with Marta Gabriel It’s the first time in the history of Crystal Viper, when we recorded the album without seeing each other, without working together in the studio. I mean, we were in constant contact, we exchanged thousands of emails, messages and calls, then we were sending all the tracks between each other,…

Rampart

After touring numerous countries in Europe, Rampart has won the position of one of the most hard-working bands in the genre, distinguished for the classic songwriting and the impressive style…

Celestial Sanctuary

Soul Diminished with Thomas Cronin We’re not a band that gets in a room to jam songs together anyway, so the whole writing and recording process was the same for us regardless of the pandemic. I mean, being out of work for months made it come together a lot quicker, and I got the time…
