recording - day 5

mixing in the studio today, getting guitar layers sorted and adding decoration to the tracks... we are very happy with how all is sounding thus far. they are sounding very big and tastefully resplendent. we will be back in the studio in about 2 weeks time or so to lay the vocal tracks down as well and add finishing touches to the recordings....

for the time being here is an exclusive taster of the new material. enjoy!
