What’s happening in Stowmarket?

Oh, yes! Hard work in Grindstone Studio continues. This time Spider is tracking His new , blasphemous riffs. The new Vader album is closer and closer… The title of the album is still not yet confirmed. „..And then there was only Pain” is a title mentioned by Peter as „working name”. However we may reveal a few new songs titles, which are: SANCTIFICATION DENIED, VOICES IN MY HEAD or DECLARATION OF HATRED. 

„The upcoming album  will be absolutely the most ferocious and brutal in Vader history” – Peter said. „We put  much attention on drums and vocal, which were never as vicious before. If You already listened GRAND DECEIVER  from our new EP – then You know, what is coming up”.

A message from the grindery Pt.1

“We arrived to the beautiful Brockford Railway Siding late Sunday evening on April 7th, after James  picked me up in Heathrow Terminal and drove to Suffolk for next three hours. Our really old school “Carriage 1” was ready to be our home for the next week. Soon after James’s Father joined us with another car filled literally up to the roof with drums and hardware. We were ready for next morning….but first for a proper sleep tho. On Monday morning we drove to “GRINDSTONE” studio situated about one klick from our “Station”. There we met Scott Attkins – the producer of new upcoming Vader album! Scott was working with many Metal oriented bands already (e.g  Cradle of Filth, Sylosis , Gama Bomb, Amon Amarth or…Divine Chaos). Studio has pretty chamber character and “home feeling”. Reminds me a bit Sunlight Studio ,  where we were recording “The Ultimate Incantation”  27 years ago. The whole day One was setting up drum kit , microphones , skins and checking all channels or calibrating “the death machine”. There was also time to chat with Scott and plan work for next days to come.  Really boring but so important day indeed. James has ambitious plan to record tracks for  three songs each day. Hm…What can I say?  He’s a Beast indeed 😉 ”

EP recording session…

VADERMANIAX! Here are some words about last VADER session in Hertz Studios by Peter.

“We arrived to Hertz Studio in Bialystok (East Poland) on Monday 14th afternoon. Setting up the whole drum kit took the rest of day and next morning. Jimmy started recording with “Litany” and “Steeler” and both were done by the evening. Three new songs were the task for Wednesday (January 15th). Around 6 pm we were yet after listening over all drum tracks. James did great work with many challenging themes , which You can hear on this EP. I started working with guitars just next morning and – same like Jimmy – I started with Priest cover and “Litany” and I made all guitars and base lines till end of  work hours. That was the last day of  the first part of THY MESSENGER session. We had a festival show in Germany on January 19th so I traveled there straight  from studio.

The second (and last) session started on Monday February 4th. In next two days I finished all guitars/bases and -of course – vocals to GRAND DECEIVER, EMPTINESS and DESPAIR , also recorded earlier LITANY (in two versions) and STEELER. We left whole work with lead parts for the end. Spider sent us His lead parts by mail. That’s the way of work, that He prefers. He’s got more time to focus on songs in His own home studio in Wroclaw. All in all . the whole recording part was done by the end of Tuesday (February 5th).  I had my travel tickets to Birmingham already in my hands and had to leave the studio at 9 am…. However I decided to change some lines in one text , also a part of one lead. I had 30 minutes to do it right before departure . And I did… 😉 ”

VADER was using for this recording:

  • James: TAMA drums, MEINL cymbals
  • Peter: Gibson Flying V and RAN InVader guitars; Warwick bass
  • Spider: Jackson guitars

Below You can see some shots (by Hertz Studio) taken during the session. Enjoy and … come back! \m/
