Anterior Recording Diary by James B

ANTERIOR have begun recording the follow up to 2007’s ‘THIS AGE OF SILENCE’ at Grindstone Studios with Scott Atkins (Stampin’ Ground, Sylosis, Gamma Bomb, Man Must Die).

JAMES BRITTON provides an update into the current world of Anterior in the latest part of their studio diary…

“Hey guys n dolls, thought I would entice your cream buds with a studio update!

I have recently finished tracking the bass to the new AnterioR record and now with the completion of drums, 4000 rhythm guitars, bass and some lead lines it sounds more pleasing than Brazilian fart porn! Not to much to say about the bass really, only that with the help of Scott Atkins at the helm we got a sound so heavy and nasty that it would actually make Satan weep! Scott has been a great help with this new album and has really brought out the best in us and in the new songs.

From my personal view I would say the songs on the new record are definitely more driven and more aggressive but with bigger melodies than found on "This age of silence". It is a natural progression from our first album and has some different edges that we felt needed exploring to keep things fresh. This has also been influenced by the gap between the albums and how our music taste has matured and varied during this time. Leon and Nixon are currently putting all of the lead work on the album as we speak and it sounds more epic than a weed cloud full of free Johnnie Walker and hookers! The main thing is that we are all extremely happy with the way things are sounding and literally cannot wait to unleash this beast on the planet.

We will be playing mostly new songs on our upcoming Metal Hammer Razor Tour in February so make sure to get to a show and provide yourself with an eargasm! In a recent review, someone actually said ‘Has the interest died down too much over the past few years, or can Anterior reignite a withering flame?’ I can openly say that, it has been a few years and line up changes but, with the power and aggression of these new songs, the line up we have now, and the new found drive, **** the withering flame, we will be setting fire to everything in sight! Love, sex wee and some cliche metal saying......”

Nixon talks about his solo axe work on the new album

Metal Hammer Razor tour kicks off next week

ANTERIOR have begun recording the follow up to 2007’s ‘THIS AGE OF SILENCE’ at Grindstone Studios with Scott Atkins (Stampin’ Ground, Sylosis, Gamma Bomb, Man Must Die).

In part 4 of their studio diary, guitarist STEVEN NIXON brings us up to speed with the goings on in Anterior-world….

Good day to all you Anterior fans around the globe.
Nixon here signing in for a quick studio update.
Recently got back to “sunny Scotland” as Leon would put it but I really must beg to differ, the weather up here is much akin to being trapped in an Eskimo’s camel toe!


The last stint we just completer in the studio was focused on getting all my solo’s for the album down although we did interlace the solo’s with vocals. And by that I don’t mean bar a sweep picking then a bar of pig squeals… We changed it up so that Luke wasn’t screaming for 11 hours a day and it seemed to really go well as by the third day my fingertips were torn to shreds anyway!


To echo what Leon said, Scott Atkins really does bring out the best in us, I went down there with pretty much finalized solo’s and when we got to tracking them in the studio we just kept tweaking and tweaking them and the end result was more than worth it. I can honestly say that with all the hard work, determination, encouragement and the fact that nobody was prepared to settle for anything less than perfect, it was probably the best guitar work I’ve played in my life.


For my solo sound on the album I used a Peavey 5150 head on the rhythm channel, with an Ibanez tube screamer and the same mesa cabinet we used for the rhythms. Overall I’m really happy with the sound that we got. It is really clear and creamy but still has a lot of attack for when you’re playing fast or picking and bending individual notes. Along with the tone that Leon is using which is quite similar but tweaked slightly just enough to provide a distinction between who is playing each solo on the album, we really do have a good combination and the harmonies are sounding epic as ****!
We have a tour coming up in less than a week and I can’t wait to unleash some new material and some blinding new solo’s on you mother****s.


Anyway that’s all for now kids, hope to see you on the Metal Hammer Razor tour somewhere around the UK in the next few weeks. You bring the beer, we’ll bring the steel!
Nixon
