Circle II Circle Issues Update To Studio Diary

Circle II Circle has been working hard on their highly anticipated 5th studio album "Consequence of Power". Check out LoudTrax.com to read a studio diary written exclusively by the band. The album is set for a Fall 2010 release.

An excerpt from the studio diary is as follows:

"Went into SWEET SPOT studios & started setting the drums up for CONSEQUENCE OF POWER. I am really looking forward to it because I really like this studio. Working w/ the owner Jim Fox, is always a treat. I always like to go in early, the night before and stretch out new drum heads on my custom Joey Jordison double bass kit. This kit is set up a lot different than most drummers and tuned a lot lower than most, consisting of 10” & 12” drums on the far left a 13” drum in the middle and a 14” on the right w/ a 13” Pork Pie metal screamer snare. My cymbals consist of a variety of brands Zildjian, Sabian, & Meinl. The cymbals are also set up a little stranger than the average drummers set up consisting of a set of 13” hi hats on the left and a set of 14” hi hats on the right. An 18” china on the right and an 18” china on the left. Two 18” crash cymbals in the center right & center left position and two 16” crash cymbals on the outside. The ride cymbal placement is low center right."

"Stick of choice used on CONSEQUENCE OF POWER is Vic Firth the Metal series and of course Massimo Mallets. As soon as we got set up, we started placing all of the microphones and tuning the drums. All the microphones we used consisted of Neumann, Sennheiser & Shure. Worked a couple of hours on placement and we were ready to throw down the next day."
