Q: How long did it take to make this CD? Love it!
A: Thank you for your question. It really makes us happy to hear you like our record. Black Lightning was a complete D.I.Y production. When Grim Reverb and myself set out to make the record we approached it as a huge learning experience. Our goal was to write, produce, record, mix, master, design and distribute a full length LP doing everything ourselves and figuring out anything we needed to as we went along. This included learning to play some of the instruments which we had little experience with before. With that said we did bring in some very talented guest musicians for some key parts that you hear on the record. We started the record in the middle of 2008 in Philadelphia, PA and we completed the album in late summer of 2014 in Los Angeles, CA. Just over 6 years! Very Best DEAD-I
