EUROPE BEGIN RECORDING NEW ALBUM:
June 18, 2006
We have now started the recording of our forthcoming album (yet untitled!) and we’re well on our way with recording the basic tracks.Everything is working and sounding FuXXing great… Except for the bass amp that blew up and almost caught fire!
As we told you before, this time we’re producing the album ourself, and it feels real good to be totally in charge.The recording engineer is none other than the legendary Lennart Ostlund, who’s famous for his work with Led Zeppelin, Scorpions, Genesis… to name but a few!
Yesterday Ian finished recording the last drum track for the new album, with only minor blisters… on his feet!He even got to do a timpani overdub, using the very same tipanies that John Bonham from Led Zeppelin played on the intro for “In The Evening”. Need we say that Ian was thrilled?
Right now John Leven is putting down the last couple of bass tracks, and hopefully we’ll start with the guitars next week.
Check out the Pictures/Other section for some snaps from the session.
