Elvenking Issues New Studio Report

Italian power metal band Elvenking has issued the following studio report:

"DAY 10 – March 30th:"

After a quite difficult journey (I nearly missed my plane for Germany), I finally got to the local train station where Dennis was waiting for me. Time to have a tour of the place and I was already in front of the microphone. By the end of the evening I had already finished the first song!"

"DAY 11 – March 31st:"

"A very hard working day! We started in the morning and layed down 3 songs plus some harmonies. I worked on two powerful and melodic mid-tempos and on a faster and harder one which is probably gonna be the opening track. The way we worked was really stimulating..and fast actually eheh! We concentrated on the interpretation, the mood and the dynamics of the vocal parts. That was a fuckin hard process, in fact at the end of the day I was pretty tired (shattered actually!), but also really satisfied of the result. Time for a pizza and a giant beer in the evening and that was all the fun I was allowed to have..’till the next session!"

Elvenking Posts New Studio Journal Online

Italian power metal band Elvenking has posted another studio report on their website. Read it below:

"This time my experience in studio was very…ehm…'fast!' I arrived at 3 p.m., after 8 hours driving, had a cup of coffee while meeting Dennis, and at 4 p.m. we layed down the first track! He already setup all the stuff to record the bass and we have just to adjust some pots to get a great sound: this time you can hear a Fender precision A.S. into a Fender supersonic guitar head, plug with a Marshall guitar cabinet. Strange mixture of vintage stuff but we got a big sound! The way Dennis record bass line is different from what I’ve done 'til now, he prefered to listen to the whole line two or three times, then he took the best one and worked on it. Well, after three hours, at 7 p.m. we have done 6 songs. In the night I had gnocchi at the local Italian restaurant and went to bed directly. On Monday we started at 12 and after 3 hours I’ve done my job! Ready to come back home. Bought two boxes of good german beer, filled up at the gas station and after only 40 hours I was back in my bed!"

Elvenking Guitarist Breaks Shoulder Skiing

Italian metallers Elvenking have issued the following announcement about their guitarist breaking his shoulder in a skiing accident:

"We’re sorry to inform you that Saturday March 7th guitarist Aydan broke his shoulder in a ski accident. He’s been forced to undergo surgery in order to reduce the damages.

“I was skiing with some friends” reports Aydan “I don’t know exactly what happened but I lost my skis and jumped above, landing heavily with my shoulders and face on a block of ice hard as concrete. My shoulder was broken and I was operated on Thursday 12th. The doctors placed a metal plate fixed with 9 screws in order to maintain the bone. Pretty cool! Now I am finally back home but I still cannot move the arm. Obviously I am not able to play guitar at the moment, but I will do anything to be able to be back on stage as soon as possible”.

"Elvenking will use the services of guitarist Leonardo… replacing Aydan for the upcoming March live dates."
