Now


↑ Björn Fryklund of Freak Kitchen is surely one hell of a drummer. He were in the studio and out of it quicker than we ever experinced (ONE freaking day, holy macaroni) when recording Freak’s new album ‘Confusion To The Enemy’, set to be released sep 2018. As always with this excellent drummer and band the album will contain a whole lotta intense playing!

↑ Ufofolket were in the studio the other week and laid down the first six drum tracks for their second album. The drums used this time were a mix of Vintage Sonor and Ludwigs. For all you nerds: 22×18 Kick, 10×10 Tom, 12×12 Tom, 16×18 Tom. Supraphonic, Vistalite snare drums. Cymbals: Paiste, Sabian, Zildjian and Istanbul, a mix of all that’s good. The sound is continuing in the style of classic punk/hc/thrash and the mindset this time is that every channel recorded will carry the mindset of a furious but somehow controlled madness. If the band succeeds with this mission we will know later on 2018.
In the meantime, listen to Helmet… or why not the Ufofo debut EP above!

↑ We’re so thrilled to hear that the much talented Sarah Klang is on a sucessful debut tour right now. Two years ago we were lucky to get to record some drums for Sarahs first single ‘Sleep‘. We wish her and the band great sucess for all future to come! In this picture producer Anna is feeling the Ludwig Vistalites and vibing in with the great voice that Sarah delivers. Please Go Check Her Out !

Mother Misery’s new full length album ”Megalodon” is out now on Transubstans and are getting nice rewievs. We took care of the drum recording and on a kit mixed with DW and Ludwig we found a solid sound that were recorded unto 18 sweet channels of Bombastikness.

SONOR  M A N I A ! ! ! !   🙂 


↑ We bought BDR’s first Sonor drums early 2017. A gloss white 5-piece vintage ‘Phonic Plus’ kit from the early 80’s. We didn’t know what to expect, since these kits are made of Beech wood, wich was new to our ears, and also since these drums are built extremly thick and heavy (well you can see the German sittin’ up there). These are multi layer drums, 9 to be exact. Not exactly what the vintage fans strive for….


…But when setting them up for the recording session for
The Lurking Fears debutalbum and hearing great drummer Adrian Erlandssons ferocious beating of them we got really 🙂


We extended the first set of drums with more units to build a classic monster hardrock kit. We now can offer
2 x 22 Kicks,
10/12/13/14 Toms,
2 x 16” Floor Toms,
And three different Sonor Snares from the same era:
D 506 14×6,5 (Steel)
D 508 14×8” (Steel)
D 518 14×8” (Beech)


The Phonic and Phonic Plus Series was used alot in the 80’s by drummers like Nicko Mc Brain (Peace of mind / Powerslave period), Tommy Lee (Shout At The Devil and Theatre Of Pain period). Phil Rudd also used both std Phonic and the Phonic Plus series. IE, these are drums that we heard on our fav albums during our first years of playing.

Now Please Enjoy Lurking Fears debut album!
And head over to Nuclear Blast and buy the VINYL

Drummer Tommy Hanning just switched back to drums after severeal years with guitar and bass in alot of different bands and seemed glad to have found his rhytmic roots again.

langfinger-crossyears

↑ Crossyears, a new release from Långfinger
Finally, Långfingers new album hits the earth! Crossyears were recorded in collabaration with Welfare Studio and for the interested drummer we used the 70’s Orange 24/12/14/16 tuned low with coated Ambassadors (and a silver dot on kick), aiming for that fat and muddy old school thumpy sound that works better and better when raising your volume knob. This albums sounds clearly best on vinyl and can be found at Smallstone Records.

For some convenient streamfidelity pleasure aim your mouse at THIS

HNL_vinyl&cover

↑ New split from Hemskt Näringsliv & SOB Pariassound
A fun punk recording project we did, not only the drums this time though.
The band were recorded live onto ten channels only. Five mics around the drum kit and another five on room ambience, bass and the bands three (!) guitars. Only lead vocals were made separatly on channel 11.  Fastest recording process we’ve made and now it’s on vinyl together with the great great SOB Pariassound, also hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden.

↑ Check out UFOFOLKET 
Their 6track EP ‘Ingen Förmildrande Omständighet’ on Bandcamp.
For fans of more old school punk, thrash and hc… and maybe a squirt or two of those youth years filled with classic hard rock pumping out of the vinyl player every day after school.

Drums used on the album are various vintage Ludwig and Premier kits. For example a 60’s 22″ kick, and some Vistalites aswell. Large Vintage drums may be quite heavy to play but rewarding when you’re mixing the tracks 🙂

RAM Black Path 2015-03

↑ Bombastik Drum Recordings visited Black Path Studio and rigged RAM’s 1980’s Tama kit with 14 mics. This album will be their first since their last… that were called ”Death”. Drummer Morgan is great at playing hard, basic and straight thru our hearts.
