Russian female-fronted black metal act Nocra has issued the following recording update:

"Well, here's some news. 'Memories' is ready (will be upload in Sunday). Was very hard and long work with mastering. I just got Stereo Modeling Compressor a few weeks back and needed to learn how to fix sound. Needed to find best options to save warm tube sound which was before recording. On next week I plan to begin guitar recording for 'One winter evening' (drums and keys already waiting on hard-drive). And etc etc. So work with stuff for EP continues. Other news soon. Take care."

Nocra Issues Recording Update

Lady S of Russian female-fronted black metal act Nocra has checked in with the following update about the band's new material:

"Well, here a few words about Nocra's new sound. In the end of December I started work with new songs for EP. But I was totally disappointed by sound. Of course it was cold/raw and etc. but it was dead sound without soul. I understand that need to find where roots of my problem. But problem was in digital technology. Yes, today its very easy to create digital home studio without a lot of money. Computer, microphone and a lot of VST plugins. But ...this sound did not give a pleasure for ears.

"So I decided to take a break with recording before I will get necessary tools. Yes it required a lot of money but I am glad about sound quality. Recording is still not completed but now ready first song which was recorded only with professional HQ analog tools. Some what I used : tube amp and tube pedal for guitars, large diaphragm condenser microphones, analog mixer and tube ultragain for true warm sound. Yes this songs sounds quieter than digital but I am not wanted to use compressors for high loudness to save original amplitude of sound . And here NO ONE post FX, no equalizers - so nothing what changed original sound - only real honest sound as can be listen before recording . Hope you're enjoy it!"
