Poland’s death metal extremists Vader have recently entered the studio to record “Welcome to the Morbid Reich”, the band’s ninth full-length studio album. Their first studio update gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the drum session. Here’s what they had to say.
“Last week we ended the drums recording session for the newest album. Below are Pawel’s personal impressions:
” Just the day before yesterday we finished recording drums for the new Vader’s album – “Welcome to the Morbid Reich”. Our revisit in the Hertz Studio proceeded undisturbed and once again brothers Wieslawski proved to be professionals to the core. We started our session showing up in the studio on March 14th, at 9 p.m. after a few hours’ drive on our perfect Polish roads with a trailer full of gear – I really recommend it! J This day we only managed to do the load-in and hit the sack – as we were dead on our feet. The real session started the next day with setting up the drums, changing the skins, placing microphones and tuning the drums.
Check out the video and more thoughts from Pawel here.
Then, together with Slawek and Wojtek, we were adjusting the sound looking for “this is it” in each element of the set. It lasted for the whole day and a half but it was definitely worth it. The sound of the drums just kicks asses! For the next few days the schedule of work was practically the same – breakfast, setting the recording plan for the day, preparing a pilot for the drums, recording, monitoring plus corrections if needed, recording, supper and going to bed J We also went for some sightseeing with Bartek Krysiuk from Hermh – who knows this guy, knows what followed. For 7 days we recorded 9 new songs, 2 covers and a remake of veeeeeery old Vader’s track. The results of our work will be available probably in August. For now, look forward to the studio reports and the pictures from the further recording of “WTTMR”. Quite recently I’ve also become the official endorser of Paiste’s cymbals. These are definitely the best sounding cymbals on the marketand they were my wildest dream since I started to play the drums. I’m proud that now I can join thePaiste family. Of course you will hear them on the newest Vader album.”
