Check out the latest blog from MEGADETH stixman Shawn:
So now it is official, we have started to record our 12th record yesterday. I laid down drum tracks for the 1st 2 songs, which I am happy to say, turned out quite well. Tuesday was spent changing all my drumheads and getting the best possible drum tone Andy Sneap and myself could, as we are going back to the old school on this in terms of natural drum tone – From this record insepction, I had many conversations with Andy expressing how great so many records sounded back in the day with drum tones, etc. and that we both wanted to get certain aspects of that into what we are doing now. You will hear the results of this when this record is released. Anyways, day 2 will have myself playing song’s 3 & 4, (obviously, no song titles as I write this) and if we stay on track, I will have 8 song’s completed on drums by weeks end.
Be well, Shawn.
