recording update - 2006-05-16

2006-05-16 - &quot;What a change of pace! Charlie's [Bauerfeind, producer] meticulousness has led to the work being a bit slower than usual but the result much better. Today [Sunday, May 14], Anders [Johansson, drums] must have had his magic shoes on or something because he finished two songs before three o'clock in the afternoon! The ballad of the album is a bit different from the past three records in that it isn't a broken hearted-type of song. Actually, 'Dark Wings, Dark Words' isn't so much a ballad as a slow song with acoustic guitars patched in here and there. Anyway, Anders nailed this one in the first take. Even the improvised ritardando (gradually delaying the tempo) ending was perfect! If this is what happens when you let him play the way he wants, we should consider having him do that more often. Nah, that would never work! Or would it...?<br><br>&quot;Next up was 'Genocide', another triplet song and also Stefan's [Elmgren, guitar] first contribution to the record. Apart from the intro he's composed all of the music, and it's really cool with fast triplets going through the entire four minutes and forty-three seconds. Pretty tough to play the bass drums on this one, so Anders had to warm up for a while before he was ready to record. But when he was, it didnt take him very long to lay down the general drums. We worked on the patterns for a while, and then took a quick break for lunch. The new energy helped a lot, and you could tell from the way Anders was playing.<br><br>&quot;We set out to finish the third song today and the ninth one overall, 'Howlin' With The 'Pac'. In a lot of ways a classic HAMMERFALL song, a driving, mid-tempo beat, very riffy and with a sing-along chorus. Going here, Anders and Charlie had never heard the song. I finished it the day before we were supposed to begin, and e-mailed it out to everyone. The wonders of modern technique!<br><br>&quot;There were some drum pattern question marks that needed straightening out, so since it was getting late Anders decided to just go through the song from start to finish and let the patterns sink in over night. He did the same with Stefan's intrumental, so he should breeze through them tomorrow.&quot;<br><br>&quot;More <a href="http://www.nuclearblast.de/band_showa.php?artist=26"><u>HAMMERFALL</u></a>&quot;
