Ross Robinson, Steve Evetts and Alan Douches * don’t require a bigger introduction to the music fans who follow the heavy music and the steps these gentlemen are taking in the industry of sound recording and engineering. Their impact is huge and their dossiers are vast.
So, what do these gentlemen have in common, you ask? The one album that they all worked on: Semantik Punk’s abcdefghijklmnoprstuwxyz. The album's nine tracks were recorded in 2012 at Ross Robinson’s home studio in Los Angeles. Ross produced the album. He didn’t just register the sounds, he managed to push Semantik Punk’s band members to another level of performance in the studio and the essence of their interactions with each other is one of a kind sound-work.
Steve Evetts assisted during the recording process and also mixed the album. Another veteran and ‘main man’ at West West Side Music studios, sound engineer Alan Douches, with the help of Mike Piacentini, took care of the mastering for CD edition (released only in Poland).
Now the material is back at West West Side Music studios for a new master - this time for the black wax edition of abcdefghijklmnoprstuwxyz.
Husaria Records will be presenting the album on high quality audiophile double vinyl. There will be only 250 copies made in total. No repress in the same form is planned.
For more specifications on this release, please check back soon. We will also have a pre-sale and the album will be available for pre-order before it is actually out officially.
