EnkElination “Tears of Lust” Album Release

So today EnkElination release their debut album “Tears of Lust” on all digital platforms (with some physical copies too).

The band are a London based operatic metal band headed by vocalist Elina Siirala.

I was approached by the band last year to record drum parts and spent quite some time making sure all of the parts were exactly what they needed – it was a challenge because it called for much more laid-back playing in places than many of the sessions I’d worked on up until that point but I’m very happy with the final results!

The session was booked into Fractured Sound in Scunthorpe with Chris Johnson behind the desk – Chris did a great job in helping me get all the tracks recorded quickly and efficiently and brought out the best in my playing for the record too.

If you’re interested in purchasing a copy of “Tears of Lust” you can do so on Amazon, iTunes, CDBaby or Bandcamp or check out the EnkElination website.

The band have also been announced for this years Bloodstock Open Air festival.



Two new single releases & festival dates

As of this afternoon the very first single from the new October File record is released – the lyric video for “Heroes Are Welcome” is currently being hosted exclusively by Metal Hammer.

Pre-orders for the album are also available via Plastic Head, iTunes and most online music retailers.

October File are also confirmed for festival appearances at both Bloodstock Open Air and Rebellion so far with more to follow very soon.

In other news “Tears of Lust”, the first single for London-based operatic metal band EnkElination, was released last week. I recorded drum parts for the album last August with Chris Johnson of Fractured Sound in Scunthorpe and I’m very pleased with how the finished track sounds. The full album will be available for purchase in the summer.
