The Grammy nominated guitarist Andy La Rocque, mainly known for his cooperation with the legendary KING DIAMOND band, who is also a well known and respected sound engineer and producer, and who is owner of the famous SONIC TRAIN STUDIOS (located in Varberg, Sweden), joined forces with freelance producer, band manager and A&R specialist Bart Gabriel (CEO of GABRIEL MANAGEMENT), and launched a special promo action dedicated to Metal bands and artists.
“When you start a band, and you know you want something more than just playing in a garage or local pub, you realize that you not only need a good sounding record, but you need to make the right decisions and plan everything very carefully, as the first years of the band are like walking on a minefield: one wrong move, and your plans are ruined” says both. “New bands often make terrible mistakes, they don’t know how to sell their music, how to generate interest around them, how to approach the labels and so on. So we are here for them” they add. Every new band that will book a recording session at the SONIC TRAIN STUDIOS in 2013 – be it recording full length debut album or EP – have an opportunity to work with GABRIEL MANAGEMENT specialists on the band’s marketing plan for free.
What many people doesn’t know is that Andy La Rocque has been working as a sound engineer & producer for more than 15 years, and his SONIC TRAIN STUDIOS has already hosted bands such as: KING DIAMOND, HAMMERFALL, EVERGREY, SHINING, KING OF ASGARD, FALCONER and many others – while Bart Gabriel produced more than 50 albums from bands such as: SACRED STEEL, JACK STARR’S BURNING STARR, MORTICIAN and many others, and worked as a manager or tour manager with bands like SABATON, CRYSTAL VIPER, SABBAT and LONEWOLF. La Rocque and Gabriel produced 2 albums together: CRYSTAL VIPER‘s “Metal Nation” and LONEWOLF‘s “The Dark Crusade”, both released in 2009. In other news, SONIC TRAIN STUDIOS recently teamed up with Pro Tools certified sound engineer Olof Berggren, with an extended hardware park and knowledge.
