I also worked on that production... did "things" and stuff... Can't tell you more, 'cause it's top secret... Listen to the song and you'll hear it anyway...
Today T.G. Copperfield (whom some of you may know from 3 Dayz Whizkey) releases his 2nd solo album entitled "The Worried Man" (which I co-produced, and Air, as part of T.G.'s "Electric Band", drummed on) via Timezone Records.
Oct 27th: I play bass in a Thrash Metal band called GumoManiacs, and they're releasing their 4th and 5th studio album today, compiled under the name "By Endurance We Conquer - Demons & Damnation" (which I also produced, mixed and mastered) - via Ghost Town Noize.
Why 2 CDs? Well, "Damnation" was recorded in 2014 (when "Ouf Of Disorder" was released with a 2 year delay), but due to problems with the label at that time, wasn't ever released. These problems and other legal issues forced the band to further delay the release of their next album to 2017, and so both records were packed together on a double CD containing 20 tracks to celebrate the band's 10th anniversary.
Finally you can get this piece of Thrash Metal history on CD!
As our local Gillamoos in Abensberg went by, the world prepares for even more madness, destruction, and pain: Octoberfest!!! Not just here in Germany so called "beer fests" are hip again - also the US celebrate "beer madness" (sometimes even more than we do...).
Thus our friends Dave, Brian & Andy visited us last year for Gillamoos and recorded their new EP "Black and Blue & Blau und Weiß" here at Slash Zero Studio and released it this year for the "beer season" - be prepared for real Party Punk Polka by the Bolzen Beer Band from Nebraska.
To achieve this, and to maintain our creative freedom from other labels and companies, they started a crowdfunding campaign with lots of interesting videos.
Check 'em out - there are even more on their YouTube channel!
Happy Dynamic Range Day everyone!!!
Today we'll commiserate all the "loudness war" victims suffering from lifeless over-compression, reckless clipping, heavy limiting and other unwanted distortion effects, and honor those who were brave enough to let their recordings breathe the necessary air they're supposed to have to create a nice dynamic journey for all audiophiles and music lovers!
Let's hope that some day (real soon) all those victims will be re-released with a more "user-friendly" sound aesthetic.
Give peaks a chance!
Today, party people, and only today you can finally watch the whole Inga Lindström (67) movie called "Tanz Mit Mir" on ZDF 8pm, or stream it online here!
My good friend Christoph Zirngibl composed the score, and several other good musicians played their instruments on some of the tracks; here's the musicians' cast:
Stephan Ebn: drums / percussion
Hubi Hofmann: bass
Luke Cyrus: guitars
Deryn Cullen: cello
Ian Smith: sax / clarinet / flute
Christoph Zirngibl: piano and everything else
I'd rather tell these stories to you "in persona", but chances are that I don't know you personally, or that I haven't had enough time to meet you in person for some time, so I'm gonna write them here for you to read anyway.
So let's start with some history:
Because our label at the time (GoldenCore / ZYX Music) fucked up the CD release of our band GumoManiacs' "Out Of Disorder" album, and we were bound to a contract that didn't allow us to look for other labels, I decided to release the LP version on my own, so that's basically the beginning of Slash Zero Records. And to the date, exactly one year after we released that record (Dec 11th, 2015) I'm writing this first blog post here. So technically speaking it's SZR's 1st birthday today - and as a birthday present, I will now officially unveil the Slash Zero Records homepage to this world.
