" I think that Markradonn find a fine balance between esoteric and accessible creating innovative and creative music without alienating potential fans...Their black metal frills and occasional death metal riffs (And some totally insane solos) will actually encourage many fans to check them out even more. One of the things that makes Markradonn so appealing for me is their sick vocals, they have a certain harsh quality to them that is wholly unholy... Overall, Markradonn are indeed doing something experimental and new and the future seems bright for them."
Ask Markradonn anything...
Q: What kind of vocal mics and effects unit do you use to get your vocal sound? Can we see an video of you guys jamming?
A: Wow, you guys are really asking some great questions today! As far as the vocal situation, I (Haniel, guitars, vocals) use a pretty basic old Samson mic, and I run it through a a tube pre amp, then a digitech processor, then a BBE sonic maximizer. I use reverb, some "harmony" for chorusing and color, and a digital delay pedal in some places. On the album mixdown it will sound more defined. I typically have to really mess my brain up and put myself in a really dark place to sing like that, so I have to like fast for at least half a day, do meditation and breathing exercises, etc...and I tend to do everything in one, two takes tops, and I try to keep it under 90 minutes in the session. I record all the vocals by myself, and usually late at night. Well, as far as video of us "jamming"....I will see what I can do. We have some practice videos with me and Tim (drums) but they are just us jamming out; we are planning on having some more videos with the other members soon. Maybe we will have a surprise for you when we release the two new songs this month ;) By the end of the year, we'll have a "music video" released, and a live video featuring the whole ensemble...
