Sacrilegious Throne – The Infernal Council download release

As of 8pm tonight,  Sacrilegious Throne’s “The Infernal Council” digital single will become available as a free download via the band’s Bandcamp page.

The track has previously only been available by request on Top Rock Radio but can now be downloaded by clicking on the Bandcamp icon on the ST Facebook page.

“The Infernal Council” is the first track released ahead of the forthcoming album that we’ve begun working on and was entirely recorded at my home studio. I’ve also handled production, mixing and mastering duties for the track.



Production, Mixing and Engineering

I feel it’s worth mentioning that I’m not just available to record drum tracks for your project or handle live shows but that I’m also available for production work.

Sometimes it’s tough to find a balanced mix when it’s your own performance that you’re working on and finding out exactly how to achieve what you’re looking for can be a very lengthy process and just sometimes it’s worth investing in the opinion of someone detached from the project – an external producer might just be what you’re looking for.

I’m a firm believer in clarity and I do my best to mix in a way that keeps the track full but balanced at the same time. Every project is individual and receives a dedicated mix – I’m always dedicated to bringing you the production that you’re searching for.

Examples of my production work will be available on my website very soon.

I mix/produce using a range of products from Avid / ProTools, T-Racks 3, KRK Monitoring, Line6, Tech21 and Drumagog to name but a few.

I offer a range of services which includes:

  • Guitar / Bass Re-amping
  • Drum Track Quantizing / Editing / Re-triggering
  • Full track / EP / album mixing
  • And more…

For a quotation for any of these services, please feel free to contact me using my email address: or via my website:

December Update – News and more gear

So it’s been quite some time since I last updated my WordPress but things have been rather busy.

Firstly, I’ve moved house but I am still based in the Lincolnshire/Nottinghamshire area.

Secondly, I’ve been working on a two track single with Sacrilegious Throne – as usual I’ve been handling the drum related side of things but this time around I’ve also been dealing with all the engineering and production – hopefully this will be complete very soon. Additionally the band have finally had their first photoshoot with the superb photographer Nicholas Dishington and make-up artist Liv Free and photos should be released shortly.

Next, October File have begun announcing live shows for January and February 2013 ahead of the album tracking sessions for our next record – links to these can be found on the October File Facebook page.

There have also been some additions to my kit/recording setup since October.

I now have a Pearl Free Floating Maple snare drum (14″x5″) added to my collection of snares and this is, of course, available for recording sessions. It offers a very articulate and crisp sound completely unrestricted by any hardware.

I’ve also added a set of Meinl 12″/14″ Benny Greb Trash Hats from their Generation-X series. These replace my Generation-X Filter China and offer a more percussive sound for timekeeping – much like a controlled but very adjustable cymbal stack.

I’ve no further news on my drum loop package, I’m still in talks with my web designer as to the best way to make them available for purchase.

I’ll be posting live dates for both bands along with some news on some of my recent sessions very soon.
