KAMELOT Drummer: New Album Is Going To Be 'Bad-Ass'

Florida-based power metallers KAMELOT have entered the studio to begin recording the follow-up to last year's "Epica", tentatively due before the end of the year through SPV Records. The following is the latest studio report from drummer Casey Grillo:

"Hey everyone, WOW, it’s been a crazy week! Lots of grueling work recording drums….. My day goes so quick. First thing I do after waking up is call [guitarist] Thom [Youngblood] and talk about the next song I will be recording that day. Also to see what he thinks about the last song I recorded. If everything is fine with the last song. I go out in to my studio, turn all the equipment on and check to make sure everything is working. So many things to keep up with when recording drums (about 12 to 14 microphones!) My job as a drummer is to also tune the drums, change drumheads and put tape around my blisters. Also funny how my job as a 'Recording Engineer' is to make sure the drummer has tuned his drums, changed the drum heads and to put tape around his poor little blisters so he doesn’t complain about them later.

"So far the drum recording has been going great! All the song are sounding extremely heavy. I’ve recorded a few songs now and I can tell you this KAMELOT album is gonna be bad-ass."
