Drum Tracks finished for Meats album:
Recording Meat's new album 2009
Well I can finally take a breath now that I am finished with Meats tracks. This album really is exciting and kicks butt. I really got to play a lot at times. There are a few songs where Meat and Rob (producer) just said go nuts. :) believe me that's just what I wanted to hear.
It was great to see Meat dig his teeth into this album he really was arranging songs around like crazy. I think at one point he turned three songs into one big epic Meat Loaf classic.
I am blown away with the drum sounds Rob and Doug (Engineer) have gotten for this album. I will ask Doug if I can post a video up on his Miking technique. Crook took some great footage.
I would really like to thank Sonor, Zildjian, Vic Firth, Earthworks, and Evans for the support they gave me throughout this album. These companies are amazing, just always there when I need help whether its advice on getting a sound, or a piece of gear that at a last minutes notice needed to get my hands on. You guys rock.
To keep in touch with what is going on in the studio join up on Meats twitter page there is some really funny stuff on there.
