Sylosis Issues "Studio Report #1"
April 7, 2008
Reading, UK metalcore thrashers Sylosis,
who are currently working on their debut album for Nuclear Blast,
have completed work on the drums. The band have posted their first studio report (including photos) on their Myspace Page
"The drums are now finished! The drum tones are amazing - thanks to Scott
playing has seriously stepped up since ’The Supreme Oppressor’
EP, which was recorded almost a year ago now.
Here’s a little insight to our life in Ipswich for the past few weeks...(yes - weeks...drums take time). It’s just been me (Josh
) and Rob,
as there’s not much space in the studio or caravan for us all to go up at once. Carl
came up for a few days to get wasted n hang out - pictures of ’the selk’ will be added to this blog soon.
This has been our accomodation....A damp, dingy, piss soaked caravan - it helps fuel the metal. Before we got to Ipswich, we were thinking along the lines of a more Allan Partridge
static home...but no...on the plus side - the owner of the caravan park is called Alan
AND there is an owl sanctuary on site....awesome.
Me and Rob
have been going mental in there. Literally mental. No tv or anything so our entertainment came from combining words together. You got a jam sandwich? then it’s a jamwich. Since coming home I spoke to Dan Peirce
about this and he said him and Reynolds
have been doing it for ages and they have coined the term ’Aykroyd’
. As in Dan Aykroyd
...I don’t know why.
We tried moving onto whole sentances..."do you want another pot noodle?" becomes "doodle"....but it’s nearly impossible, so it was scrapped.
Those sofas/beds are litterally piss soaked - we had to go to asda and buy cheap douvets to go under our sleeping bags......oh yeh, forgot to mention we have no gas.....
got me tons of old 80’s arcade games for my mactop (mac laptop) and leant us a USB controller. Games from the 80’s are harder - fact! He set us the quest of completing "Ghosts and Goblins
" - even with infinite credits we had to give up after 5 hours of not even making it to level 2.
So, after tracking aaaaallll the songs we dismantled the kit. Celebrated with a triple slice jam sandwich, but overdid the jam. A real shame because it had to be chucked.
So, we’ve been home for the weekend and return tomorrow to get on with the guitars. The train pulled into Tone City
at 5:09, Wednesday the 2nd of April. We’re using the Randall RM100 and it sounds amazing!
Keep checking back for updates! We’ll try and upload some videos too! In the meantime, check out the studio pics
