Septicflesh Posts Fifth Studio Update

Greek act Septicflesh will be releasing "The Great Mass" on April 18th, 2011. The band has now checked in with a fifth studio report, which was conducted by Hard Rock Mag editor Sven Letourneur. The studio report can be read below, or you can check out Metalunderground.com's review of the new album here.

Sven: You left Peter Tägtgren work alone for a few days, how long did he work on the mix? Did he send you some tests regularly or just one final pre-mix to have your opinion before applying your changes? When you heard the first results of the mixing done by Peter, what was your opinion about it? Were there a lot of things to be changed? Is the final result close to what you had in your minds?

Sotiris (guitars / vocals): After a period of 5 days, Peter presented us his first pre-mix of the songs. It was his suggestion for the "skeleton" of the album, focusing on drums-bass-guitars. In this pre-mix, there were no vocals, as he wanted to focus on them after the decisions about the basic sound field were taken. On this mix the orchestral parts had a more general balance. That didn't work for all the songs as on the new album we experimented with different structures, using different combinations of instruments and dynamics from song to song. On the other hand, when we listened to it, we were very pleased, as the guitars were sharp and extremely heavy and the grooves of the bass and drums were sounding so damn powerful. Our suggestions were mostly focused on the orchestral parts, as it was obvious that the metal instruments were exactly as we wanted them to be.

Sven: After some remarks, Peter did a second mix with all your ideas taken into account. How did you feel when hearing this second test? Did you feel you were close to the perfect result? Is there a third mix already done?

Fotis (drums): Yes, there is a third mix already... The good thing about Peter is that even if he is who he is and has so many years of experience, he is always open to any suggestions and ideas. We had a great time working together and I believe that both sides are happy with the result of this album.

Septicflesh Issues New Studio Update

Greek metal act Septicflesh will be unleashing "The Great Mass" on April 18th, 2011. The band has checked in with a fourth interview segment conducted by Hard Rock Mag editor Sven Letourneur, which deals with the recording process of the album. The studio report can be read below.

Sven: On last October 2nd, you went to Czech Republic for a one-shot headlining show. How was it? I suppose it felt good to get out of the studio pressure and play live? Did you get some energy from this show to finalize the album?

Christos (guitars): It was a great gig but we were too tired to really enjoy Prague, which is a great place to be. Of course, it was a good break after our intensive work and it helped us to “recover” and escape from our hectic mood. Everything was recorded and Seth and Fotis would leave the next day for Sweden to go and see Peter Tägtgren for the mix.

Sven: One year ago, you were initially planning on working with Fredrik Nordström. What made you switch to Tägtgren in the end?

Fotis (drums): Fredrik Nordström is an amazing producer and made a great production for “Communion”, but on this album we wanted a new sound, something darker and different. We decided to mix our new album with Peter Tägtgren, having witnessed his amazing work as a producer for many bands in the extreme metal scene like Celtic Frost, Immortal, Dimmu Borgir, etc. So we wanted to listen to his "approach" to the final mix of our songs. We wanted a different point of view to our sound than the one that we had already explored with Fredrik. It’s not a case of a better versus worst approach, just a need for something different. And I truly believe that he gave his best.

Sven: You told me a bit about the trip to Sweden. Since his studio is lost in the North of the country, it seems to have been a real adventure. Two Greeks lost in cold Scandinavia where everyone talks Swedish must have felt strange!

Christos: One day before the trip to Sweden we had to play a headlining show in Prague. The thing is, that when we got to Sweden, Peter was still on the plane coming back from a tour he had in Mexico and he had no idea that we had already arrived at the Arlanda airport. So we had to choose between either stay in Stockholm or take one train and two other busses to Ludvicka, where the Abyss studio is and wait for him there. We were really lucky that he landed an hour later and called us.

Broken Hearts: An Ode To Anti-Love Metal

February 14th is a date that means different things to different people. For some, Valentine’s Day is that special occasion to show someone how much you care, while for others it’s an unfortunate reminder of just how long that unused condom has been stashed in your wallet. For every lucky gentleman who has found the lady he can sexually accost without fear of court mandated harassment classes, there’s that lonely soul who will spend Valentine’s Day with nothing but music out the speakers and a bottle of Jack.

No matter which side you fall on, heavy metal has got a song to match your mood and help you head bang through the gooiest of all the holidays.

Whether any given track is purposefully over the top and funny, depressing enough to make you pull out the eyeliner and candles, or just plain outright disturbing, metal is no stranger to the anti-love song. So for those of you will be spending Valentine’s Day alone, or just simply think the holiday is nothing more than a marketing ploy to sell chocolates and greeting cards, here’s a series of anti-love anthems to get you through the day.

For those who still have a heart and haven't devolved into extreme cynicism, you can also check out our companion listing of pro-love heavy metal music at this location.

Humorous

Metalunderground.com is no stranger to aberrant sexual behavior, as we have the honor of being home the infamous “I’d put my tongue in her butt” forum thread. The following, um, “tongue-in-cheek” songs are all dedicated to everyone who has ever contributed a post to that thread.

Whether 80’s glam rock parody/tribute act Steel Panther is singing love songs or anti-love songs is a matter of some debate. What could be more loving than each band member’s willingness to sleep with anything that moves, regardless of VD status? Take the particularly touching song “Turn Out The Lights,” in which we are informed that front man Michael Starr is in desperate need of some physical attention, even though his partner actively disgusts him. What’s a horny rock star to do? Look no further than the title for the answer:
