More On Sigh Female Vocalist Recording In The Nude
SIGH's Mirai Kawashima recently penned the first of several exclusive studio blogs for MetalSucks. The band is currently in the studio recording their 8th studio album "Scenes From Hell" which will see a release by The End Records later in 2009. In this blog entry, Kawashima talks about female vocalist Dr. Mikannibal's bizarre vocal recording habits, among them getting naked and drinking cow's blood. An excerpt follows:
"At the moment, we are recording the vocal parts. This time, a half of them are taken care of Dr. Mikannibal.
"To get the best result, she sets several strict strange rules on her during the recording.
"The first rule is: Get naked when you record the vocals.
"As you can see in the above photo, she always takes off her clothes in the studio during the vocal recording sessions. Definitely this perplexes the recording engineer and other band members, but she claims that this is extremely important to her.
"It was one hot day that I took my clothes off during the recording session for the first time. I've stopped doing vocal recordings with my clothes on since then, as the first naked recording worked out really well for me."
"She claims that being naked is extremely important to her because "I don't wanna sweat. Also, my lungs and throat need to be wide open, and I feel more energy."
"The second rule is: Drink cow's blood during the recording.
"She eats anything. Here are a few examples of 'food' she has tried: Cockroach, moth chrysalis, bee larva, bull balls, and pig penis. No, this is not a typical shocking story made up for a band image, but she eats these things for real. And during the recording, cow's blood is something she can't miss."
