CALLENISH CIRCLE Drummer Issues Studio Report

Drummer Gavin Harte of the Dutch melodic death metallers CALLENISH CIRCLE has posted the following recording update on the band's official web site:

"Well, well, it was about time that we started recording our new album. After setting up my drumkit and doing a soundcheck on Wednesday evening (May 25), we started recordings on Thursday. First on was the song 'Sweet Cyanide', but after almost a day of recording, we decided that the drumsound still was not satisfying. So I rushed to the drumstore, bought and borrowed some stuff, put the drumkit back together and started recording again. Maybe it was because of the tension on Thursday (with the drumsound and all that) but on Friday everything went much smoother and the recordings were more tight and with the right drive. So we decided to re-record 'Sweet Cyanide' and somehow Friday seemed to be my lucky day 'cause four more tracks were recorded and goooood! One track on the album has a real ambient feeling with quite some wacky sounds so on Saturday my mission was to provide some functional basic drumming for this song. I was quite surprised how this turned out. By Sunday we still had two days left for three more tracks. Shouldn't be that hard, right? Despite of all this it took quite some time to get some really satisfying recording today. I guess the long days of recording and studio work made me pretty tired. It seems much heavier than my daytime (being a computer nerd) job. Monday was my last scheduled recording day. We left the hardest tracks for the last, but nonetheless, it needed to be finished today. Luckily the recordings went much better than on Sunday so everything was finished nicely in the planned schedule. Now it is up to the other fellows to do their thing."

CALLENISH CIRCLE are recording their fifth album at a studio in The Netherlands with producer Gail Liebling (mastermind behind GAIL OF GOD). The mix will be done at Antfarm Studio in Denmark with Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, ILLDISPOSED, MNEMIC). Mastering duties will be handled by Peter Neuber at Mega Wimp Sound in Germany. Other songtitles set to appear on the CD include "This Day You Regret" and "As You Speak". The album will include a bonus DVD, featuring a professionally recorded (audio & visual) live show (filmed at the 013 venue in Tilburg), a home video of the band's trip to the Piorno Rock Festival in Spain, and a studio report of the recordings of their upcoming album. A November release via Metal Blade Records is expected.
