Oscar checks in from the studio - 2006-05-15

2006-05-15 - HAMMERFALL guitarist Oscar Dronjak has posted the following studio update on the bands official website:<br><br>&quot;Woke up hearing the voices of the others in the kitchen and decided it was time to get up as well. The day started out with some computer work, so Anders (Johansson, drums) and I decided to invent a couple of new table tennis-based sports using, among other things, pool cues and balls as well as our own hands instead of rackets.<br><br>&quot;The proposed single (Anders practically demanded it!) is called 'Natural High' (for the time being, at least) was next. It's a moderately fast song (like 'Renegade', for example), with a very melodic chorus. What we do over these first five or so days is that we lay the foundation for the whole production, the ground work on top of which everything else is supposed to fit. So it's very important that the drum patterns follow the guitars, of course, something I already have done on the demos. But what we also do here is try to come up with more interesting patterns in places where that is needed, or ones that makes sense when mine doesnt. This is a process that requires Anders to play through the songs quite a few times before we all have agreed on what to do. Granted, the changes are usually minor, but in my experience it is the attention to details that separates a good recording from a great one. Plus, I don't want to be stuck changing the guitars later on just because we were sloppy when laying down the drums. And if there's one thing that (producer) Charlie (Bauerfeind) is not, it's sloppy. He's got that sort of obsessive-compulsive behaviour of dissecting every little segment almost to the point of (German?) madness. I'm exaggerating, of course, but this one of the things Charlie does best. Plus, hes got amazingly good ears, nothing escapes them.<br><br>&quot;After finishing the track, Anders and I went to McDonalds for a late lunch. Not my first choice today but it served its purpose. Went to a new supermarket called Loevebjerg to get more food and whine on the way back. Snuck in a quick nap and then took a bite out of 'The Fire Burns Forever', another moderately fast song but with a lot of backing vocals and Joacim (Cans) singing as high as he (probably) can. Should be interesting. The drum patterns I had laid out didnt make it through the Charlie filter, so they set about rearranging almost every part in this song. Finally, everyone was happy and the track turned out really cool.<br><br>&quot;We watched some more ice-hockey and then I helped Anders change heads on the drums, and that was it for today. Being a good soldier, Anders went to bed to feel rested tomorrow, while Charlie fiddlded around with somehting and I wrote this.&quot;<br><br>Check out a <strong><a href="http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoID=655370393&n=2&Mytoken=D784BBA2-1192-D235-FBA910B01F294308740944" target="_blank">video</a></strong> and a <strong><a href="http://myspace-945.vo.llnwd.net/00735/54/95/735275945_l.jpg" target="_blank">picture</a></strong> from the studio.<br><br>HAMMERFALL's new album is tentatively scheduled for an October 2006 release.
