You won't find any beer soundtracks here. Nor will you need to weather through seven hygiene ads to watch a killer video. Shit has gotten so generic, the Metal category at Music Choice is gone, combined with Rock, and the sounds are so interchangeable that Creed sounds like Pink Floyd in comparison!
HGR Records/Alchemist Studios is excited to announce the new RITUAL OF TERROR cd release Feb 26th at The Heavy Metal Shop in SLC and also at the Testament/Overkill show. Big thanks to Merchhero for their Studio Partnership and discounts.
Bassist and asst. engineer Scott says of the cd: ROT cd-samples up soon at www.reverbnation.com/ritualofterror . Really digging the music, listened to about 4x this morning. Pieced together from different times and locations, it sounds a bit like it was recorded in 3 different studios, yet due to intensive mastering, the sounds now all go together--early Maiden/Motorhead/Misfits albums sounded like that. Specifically, "Idle" & "Serve" sound like the same studio, but different days: engineer Bryan Tully mixed the cymbals quieter on those to keep the many words Rick is saying clear, but then on Serve the kick is further down in the mix than the rest of the entire disc, letting the guitar riff dominate. And there the guitar is very roomy for an authentic live sound. "Coils" of course is its own retro-thing, then "Blissful" and "Purest" have the super-crisp vocals, bass, and drums, and the perfect Randy Rhoads/Toni Iommi studio-guitar tone.
