Another master

Interdictor

When we were about to release Noumenon we decided to look for a mastering engineer that seemed experienced in our genre and preferably had experience from some of the bands we like most. We found a few candidates and decided to go for Jan Lehmkämper (X-FUSION MUSIC PRODUCTION) and Andreas Andersson (SERVANT STUDIO).

Jan has some nice projects of his own with X-Fusion,  Noisuf-X and Kombat Unit. Appart from his own bands he has experience from mastering a lot of  bands in the scene for example Suicide Commando and SITD.  Servant Studio adds bands like Interlace, Covenant and Thermostatic to their CV. So which one should we go for?

Well, you should always remember the first rule of government spending: why have one when you can have two for twice the price? We decided to try both of them and then select the one we liked best for the official release. Both guys did a great job and they are very nice people to work with. Actually we were very happy with both masters but in the end we decided to use the one from Servant Studios.

Some people might not even hear the difference but the official one has more dynamic content while the other one is louder and more “in the face”. Now we decided to release the one that didn´t make it for the official release on Soundcloud so you can decide for yourself wich one you like best!

By the way, we are working hard on our new material so stay tuned for more information! 🙂
