Recording Update - 2003-11-03 00:00

2003-11-03 00:00 - Sweden's IN FLAMES have posted the following update on the recording process for their new album:

"Hello all, now we are done with the recording of the upcoming IN FLAMES album, due out next spring. It took almost 7 weeks in total to record and the way we choose to do it was the most challenging, interesting way we've ever recorded an album.

"As you might know, we did this in Denmark, where we had found a house suitable for our purposes earlier this year. It was located just outside Fredrikshamn, so even though we were camped in the middle of nowhere, we had just a few minutes to reality.

"We took all our gear and hired our two great friends and producers Örjan Örnkloo and Daniel Bergstrand to produce the album. They brought their equipment along and the first week was spent mostly by building the two control rooms that were located in the two wings of the building. We also had two other good friends, Magnus & Magnus who took care of the cooking, driving, tuning, re-stringing and basically everything else that we had no time to do, as we were focusing on the recording. Without them we wouldn't be alive...

"Then, as the drums were recorded earlier in Dug-Out studios, we started with the guitars, and setting the sound that we needed for them.

"After another week it was time for the bass guitar, alongside the recording of the remaining guitar parts.

"When the bass was finished after 6 days, Anders started on his vocals, and it all sounded great. It was the first time we could hear the energy that we had created in a more finished form.

"We are really thrilled, as we built this 'studio' from scratch, and the sound that we achieved on this album can never be recreated 100%, this will be totally original, in a good way.

"Anyways, hope you all will enjoy it, take care.

"Anders, Peter, Daniel, Björn & Jesper"
