Svartsot Posts New Recording Studio Update

Svartsot has checked in from Lasse Lammert's LSD Studios with the following report about the band recording a new album:

"Day 7: Rhythm parts finally completed. Some guitars were also re-amped. Time to celebrate a bit before concentrating on the bass parts. Then going on with the more melodic elements of the album. A few beers were drunk to celebrate.

"Day 8: Bass recording commenced today. Looks like it's a walk in the park for James. He's playing really tight. It's just been heads down work today, apart from the huge wiener-schnitzels we had for lunch and the numerous cups of tea James claims he needed.

"Day 9: All acoustic and electric bass was completed today. James decided to make a pie in celebration. He couldn't find something big enough to make one pie in, though, so he made 2 instead. We should be starting on lead guitars tomorrow.

"Day 10: After accidentally going to town last night, and consuming an extreme amount of beer, we had a late start today. Cris decided to concentrate on three of the less complicated songs, and managed to nail them.

"Day 11: Recording of the lead guitar continued today. Three more tracks were completed, leaving three left for tomorrow. But complications are expected, as it's St. Patrick's Day. James wife and son arrived today too.

"Day 12: Although less alcohol was consumed than on the last trip to town, only two tracks were nailed today. The sheer amount of lead guitars has meant that tracking takes a little longer than expected. Uffe also arrived today – a day earlier than the others had realised. Looks like a trip to town is on the cards again.

"Day 13: Once again, we started late. Luckily there are no hangovers as such today. Some samples of James wife and son were recorded before James had to return to Denmark. We even managed to sample Lasse's dog! The last track of lead guitar was then finally recorded, and a few extras added in one or two of the other tracks. After a late stop, and a meal of toast, Uffe and Cris headed out to a party they had been invited to. Lasse (rather sensibly) decided to skip over this time.

"Day 14: Another late start – but then again it is Sunday today. Uffe has been laying vocal tracks for one of the tracks today, and Lasse has successfully managed to turn him into a Smurf! We're working, but there's certainly a 'day-of-rest' feeling today. Acoustic guitars should be commenced tomorrow."
