Recording details.....

It was recorded in there basement. The whole thing was multi-tracked but i recorded the guitarists in front of their amps which i think gave the overall mixes a more live and raw feel, lots of natural feedback and noise. Bass was recorded with a sunn 2000s and a ampeg solid state head both going into an 8x10 each. Guitars were each recorded with 2 amps and one mic on each amp then double tracked. The one guitarist used a soldano and the sunn bass head, and the other guitarist used the sunn with a traynor yba 1. Mic's were probably 57's and 421's.

umm everything went through the daking pres. converters were lucid, mixed in pro tools le. some samples on the kick and snare for cutting through the guitars. vox got a sm7 with a distressor going in. The band wanted it crushed so there is actually digital clipping, which is the only thing that bugs me about this recording, other than that I'm really proud of this one, didn't follow a lot of "rules" which is what i'm going to start doing more of.
