So, it's 1am in the morning and we're ready to enter the studio.
I've had zero hours sleep because I'm to fxxking excited to be recording what we have been working on tirelessly for the last 4 months!!
We're all hyped to the max and as I set up the famous DW Katalina Kicks vintage drum kit, Ian lays down guide guitar and vocals to click.
What seems like a life time of prep, setting up the kit and mic's (watch the video, apparently it only takes 29secs on time lapse) we're ready to commence.
The expectations are high and so am I on adrenaline. I place the headphones on, I hear the producers voice, GO....... Click click click clack the intro busts in and BOOM I'm off laying into the floor Tom putting down some seriously heavy beats for Cut it Up.
The energy put into the track shows when after the first take I've cracked my main crash cymbal!!! Ah well they are made to be hit hard just maybe not that furiously hard.
However, I'm not complaining - far from it - just goes to show the passion I place into the music and I'm buzzing showing the non drummers in the control room what a beast I am as I break metal with my hands!!
