I’ve been on the receiving end of a myriad of compliments and complaints about Gun Shy Assassin. One of the more popular complaints has been that I “cover” certain genres too much. That confuses me a bit, because I don’t think that’s true. But hey — I don’t think there can be too much when it comes to metal…unless its djent.
So, I held off on doing a post about the new Nightrage record all morning. I let that criticism permeate my brain and prevent me from doing something I wanted to do. But fuck it — I will not let a few misguided complaints dictate my decisions.
Nightrage have completed fifteen pre-production songs for their next full-length release, and plan to start tracking the effort this June. The group plans to commence tracking in June.
“This time, we have chosen a different approach in the recording process,” says Marios Iliopoulos. “All drums, bass, and guitars will be recorded at Zero Gravity Studios in Athens, Greece. Some of you might remember, this location was the set for our latest video ‘Wearing A Martyr’s Crown.’” I sure do. Not.
“On this record we want to break up the monotony of the typical Scandinavian weather/scenery and head to one of the most beautiful countries this band has ever played. So once again, Greece is our destination! Antony will head into Arcane Digital Recording (located in sunny Chandler, Arizona) with our good friend Ryan Butler (Landmine Marathon, Misery Index, Phobia, Exhumed) for the vocal recordings. Another first for the band, trying out an American studio will be an interesting change. But for those of you who know Ryan’s work, you can expect the result to be old school and punishing.”
