Callenish Circle Begin Recording Vocals

Callenish Circle has checked in with this studio update:

Studio report take V : vocal recordings (by Pat) !
At last it was my turn in studio. On day 1 we started with the song ‘Sweet Cyanide’. This one is most in line with the faster songs on MP//YP, containing a very catchy chorus. Next up was ‘This Day You Regret’. Since this will be the opening song it needed some extra attention. Gail (producer) and I worked out some really great vocal lines and experimented with different vocals styles and cool effects. On the 2nd day we recorded ‘As You Speak’, ‘Blind’ and ‘Behind Lines’. Even though it was a very long recording day everything went pretty smooth. Now I had a couple of days off. A very welcome break cause after 2 days of intense recordings my vocal cords got slightly irritated and needed some rest. On day 3 we started with ‘Guess Again’ and this turned out to be the most intense, extreme and over the top vocals I ever recorded. Luckily the other song that day was less intense cause I am not sure if I would have succeeded to record another song in the vein of ‘Guess Again’. For \'Black Sear\' I only had to record the couplets since the choruses will be sung by Kaleen (Gail of God). Again a few days rest and again a welcome break cause one of the last songs I needed to record was only finished during the last few rehearsals and even partly in the studio. So also the vocal lines for this song still needed to be worked out for the biggest part. Nevertheless ‘Ignorant’ turned out to be a killer song. Last song in the schedule of day 4 was ‘Self-Inflicted’, by far the slowest song on the album. All in all I can say I am extremely satisfied with the vocal recordings and also the cooperation with producer Gail went absolutely great. We really worked out some amazing vocal lines and also experimented a lot with different vocal styles (no clean vocals, don’t worry!!!) and great sound effects. Gail definitely has some great ideas when it comes to recording vocals. Next week Ron and Gail will head to Denmark to mix the album with Tue Madsen at his already legendary Antfarm Studio.
