Drummer of Dethklok/Galaktikon aka the legendary Gene Hoglan recently had a chance to talk with Drum Magazine about the tracking process for Dethalbum III and its certainly an interesting read especially if you are someone that plays drums because he has a really fascinating way of talking about he prepares for projects and whatnot:
I bet that memory helps a lot with tracking drums with different artists.
It helps a lot when you do like 12 albums and 12 different projects a year. If you don’t fuse a lot of stuff together it comes in handy. When a riff hits me I remember it. A couple of the songs on the new Dethklok album we patched and pieced them together. So I’ll know about a minute of the song, and then I get the other three minutes, I will play the first minute and then go part by part by part. Hopefully, by the time I’ve got all these parts together I can take a listen to it and get a quick break to gather the whole song in my head and then go in and track the entire song. By then I’ve already got a few different versions that we’ve pieced it together, and then I think of a few transitional fills, then play the song from start to finish.
Dethalbum III is set to hit stores next month and you can check out the video for the first single “I Ejaculate Fire” here.Tweet
