I’ve recently been working as mixing-engineer and co-producer on the new album “QuantumX” by Swedish symphonic metal-band Celestial Decay, and as the album is pretty much done a teaser-video has been released on YouTube, with a cover of a pretty well-known old classic; Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart”. I’m really satisfied with the results and the album will be released on The Music Alliance later this year. I think we are all really excited for the release.
If you watch until the end there is also a medley of the other songs from the album.
I just finished my latest song “Hold on strong”, which is another of those home demo recordings I’m working on. Since I love orchestral sounds, I wanted to make a rock song with orchestral arrangements, and this is it.
I recorded the drums in my university’s studio, and thank’s to Robin Carlheim-Müller for the engineering. The rest is done in my apartment, which I think works pretty well despite the circumstances. It’s all about learning to work with what you have. Of course, since I don’t have access to a real string and brass orchestra, I’ve used sampled sounds on this one. Needless to say, it’s one of my biggest dreams to one day be able to work with a real orchestra. Maybe I’ll get there someday.
