Jam out with your clam out

Monday July 11, 2005

Yeah, you've all heard "rock out with your cock out," but this doesn't apply to the ladies, so I applaud the sick individual who came up with this post's titular exhortation. It's become a favorite saying at MCR Studios, the subterranean recording facility where I spend seemingly all of my weekends these days as I labor to finish the new Pharaoh album. It all started in April (I think... it's been so long), and at this point, the drums, rhythm guitars, and bass are all done. The vocals and a few lead guitar parts are all that remain, but when you've only got the weekends for rockin', getting 11 tracks of highly layered heavy metal screaming and fret-melting noodling can take a long damned time. It's generally fun work, though, and in particular I've enjoyed tracking my guitar parts. I've made liberal use of Matt's great collection of guitars, having so far recorded with six different geetars through three different amps (including a very fine Soldano, on loan from my good pal Gary). I even played a Les Paul, which, while undeniably sexy, is nevertheless a heavy, uncomfortable, godawful thing to play. It sounds nice, though. Tim sang two entire songs, and part of a third one. This might not sound like much, but believe me, it's a lot to accomplish in basically a day and a half. I can't wait for this thing to be done. I'm eager to be told that it's our most mature work to date. After all, what do heavy metal musicians aspire to, if not maturity?

You should take your fancy new camera with you next time!

Any delicious meals, this time? Have you considered posting any of your original recipes, or are those waiting for you book deal?

Also, both of these phrases are new to me. As unlikely as it seems, I still must ask: do they mean anything other than the most obvious...?

Heavy metal musicians aspire to maturity? Huh...who knew?
