Finland, Tampere based Thrash/Sleezer band TORNADO‘s frontman Superstar-Joey Severance has checked in from the studio where the band has entered to record their new album, intitled “Black President”:
By the time I arrived here from Helsinki at Studio 33 in Kuopio, Jani (Drums) and Tuomas (Guitar) were already here getting their drum and guitar sounds together as they would be recording simultaneously. Being an observer, the process was quite boring for me but the final result was well worth it as the drums sound like cannons and the guitars are heavy as fuck!
During the course of the day, Jani and Tuomas managed to record 6 songs with the other 5 being left for tomorrow. Of the ten originals on this album (musically speaking), 6 were written by me. 3 by former original guitarist Michiel “Big Maaaaaan” Rutten and 1 by current guitarist Timo Ponni with the last song being a cover of the Loudness track “Dark Desire “ . As per usual with Tornado recordings, there are no triggers and no click tracks being used. The studio itself (especially from the outside) reminds me a lot of Abyss Studio in Sweden where we recorded the debut Tornado album. Both are remotely located which makes for excellent working conditions from the perspective that there are no distractions and both have very relaxed working atmospheres. As the day progressed, we were later joined by Henri (Bass) and Timo (Guitar) which was cool having all of us here at the same time.
The songs on this album are quite diverse but very much in the vein of what Tornado does best, which is write catchy as fuck Thrash Metal. Tomorrow we will finish off the remaining songs
Tornado‘s Joey Severance has issued the following studio updates:
Monday, March 7
OK, so the first day is over. We started this morning at 9 and our guy Starvin Marvin not only raised the bar, he raised the roof! From now on we have to start calling him the One Take Wonder!! The drum tracks for 10 of the 13 songs are now complete. Tomorrow he will finish the last 3 songs and then we will move on to bass or guitars. Peter also killed it today by getting us the most AWESOME drum sound ever. When you hear “Hate Worldwide” you will know what I mean. (The word bombastic comes to mind when I think of the drums.) THANKS to EVERYONE that has any interest in TORNADO and we look forward to delivering a great METAL record to the public.
Tuesday 8 March 2011, Day 2
Another day of serious progress. Starvin Marvin has now completed all the drums for the album and Big Maaaan has started recording the guitars which sound so fucking crushing that my balls hurt just from listening. Peter is keeping the boys in line with the whip and tomorrow we will continue with guitars. Johnny Wow will also lay down some thunderous bass which will take the songs into another whole new dimension which we all are looking forward to. Peter says that we are a little ahead of schedule but that happens when you are totally prepared. By the way, let me say this (and listen up ho’s) That motherfukkuh Johnny Wow can cook his ass off. Ok, that is all for now.
