I know this is long overdue, but here we go:
So much have happened since last. Antfarm Studio is now Studios. The old studio dwonstairs is still active, now occupied by my Assistant Jacob Olsen and as some might have heard, I have converted my pool to drum room. It sounds amazing! If you want to check it for yourself, go check out the new Heaven Shall Burn album. The drums were recorded here, and speaking of which album; It is getting rave reviews topping the soundcheck in both Metal Hammer and Rockhard! And speaking of new albums I have to say: Go check out all the records on my Disco 2010 page. Every single album there is just amazing in its own right. Witchery is all the metalgods I grew up listening to (Gary Holt, Kerry King, Hank Sherman, Andy LaRogue etc) and a massive killer of an album too. Engel is the most commercial yet heavy album. Mantric (former Extol members) is the best in progressive the oldschool way. The Haunted and At The Gates dvds are great and Anders is making great documentaries... Sick Of It All delivers the ultimate in NYHC as always!!!!! Everybody who needs a lesson from these guys... Me too, hehe. Die is fast deathmetal at its best.
Which brings me to the odd one out here... Nevergreen. See here is an old friend of mine who used to be the best thrashmetal drummer in the world, but sadly he left my band to be a singer... This is about 20 years ago or so, yeah getting old and all that... Years later he turned popstar in Russia and now he is representing Denmark in the Eurovision songcontest in Oslo. You all have to vote for him!!! This is the important thing in this blog. It iwll be almost like voting for Lordi! Remember.
A danish movie about danish soldiers in Afghanistan called Armadillo is getting a lot of attention these days in Cannes, and my boys in Mugshot have a couple of songs in the movie. I can't wait to see it.
Right now I just finished Davidian from Germany and their new album. We did it all here at the farm... and in the pool. It sounds keelar!.. I also had to spend a couple of days in Copenhagen to help out the reunited Attitude Adjustment with Chris Kontos on drums. That was a blast! True Hardcore. This is going to be a Raw f**king record.
I started the mix of the new Kataklysm album a couple of days ago. This new one is going to top them all!
After that it's time for Figure of 6 and then Cataract is coming back to do a new album. I am really looking forward to that.
Also [AMATORY] from Russia is getting ready to do a new album this summer. Daniel is coming to Denmark to do the drums here. I can't wait, he is an amazing drummer.
Till next time....
