Anger As Art Issues Studio Update

LA thrashers, Anger As Art, is currently in the studio recording their new album, entitled "Disfigure." The band has issued the following update on the progress:

"The sessions with John Haddad at Trench have really exceeded my expectations thus far. I had worked with John about 5 years ago on a project that never was completed... nothing that was his or my fault. Others involved, not really important. But to get the tones we have, the performances we have, and to really capture band energy while multi-tracking... it is amazing.
Rob came in and just blasted his tracks out - most in one take. I started guitar tracks on Tuesday, finishing Wednesday morning. Then Dan came in on Wednesday - we were so far ahead, we took Thursday off. Danny finished his tracks Friday, then Angelo did bass tracks and finsihed on Friday. There was no effort to rush anything - it just flowed that way. Not that money or budget is an issue (yet, LOL) but we are easily a week ahead of schedule. I will go in on Monday or Tuesday and start doing vocal tracks - then Danny do his vocals, then guitar solos, then one more day to recruit a gang choir to do the group background vocals on a few songs like Seed Of Hate, The Crush, Disfigure... a couple of others. Doubtful that we will complete the recording by next weekend, but we will be very damn close. No doubt we will be done by Labor day with everything!"

"I can tell you something - when you fight an uphill battle to achieve your goals, specifically when recording music you wrote... if you can harness that emotion and channel it into what you are doing, you will win. This recording as it stands right now (with no vocals or guitar solos) is more alive sounding than Callous And Furor, and I love Callous. But- there was a struggle to do this one. A positive struggle - a fight for what you believe, other than a fight to have others understand. These songs have existed since before any of these 3 guys joined the band, and in rehearsals I was just liking them, but wasn't feeling it! Now with Angelo, Rob, and Danny you cannot help but feel these songs. Same arrangements in most cases, but the vibe is amazing. I have always said that I will go however far I needed to go to find the right studio - whether it was down the hall from my rehearsal room, the mountains in Malibu, or in the inland empire. Some guys flat refused to drive east of the 57 Freeway (what was the quote? 'Geez, just say it Steve'. Well, I just said it). It was and is totally worth it!"
