upcoming mayhem

my oh my, it’s again been way too long… so basically i’m going to unleash the motherload of all updates, so here we go:

progsik‘s demo is appareantly reaching out… they’ve sold about 50 copies at the mountains of death, so yeay for them!
– moving on with
lifeless hill‘s ep – vocals & re-amping should be done by the end of this week.
– we decided to work some more on
cideraid‘s pre-production, mainly to bring producer julien fehlmann in to add his input.  the drum-recording will start on the 25th of september at studio mécanique, and we’re really looking forward to move on to the next level with this album.
– also, i will start tracking a demo w/
calcined by the end of september, this should be fun as well.

remote lane played another bunch of shows, and proved to become quite the live-band. by now they’ve developped a pretty tight sound, which makes my job quite a bit easier.
– i worked at the rfi in fribourg for a pretty intense week – not my cup of tea music-wise, but the folks were very nice indeed. lots of running and fixing stuff beyond fixing.
– throughout the whole october and the start of november i’ll be on tour/doing the sound for
the ocean as the opening act for the cancer bats/the dillinger escape plan eu-tour. looking quite nice so far, i’m stoked as hell.

as always, i got a couple of nifty events lined-up, which should feature some intense headbanging and wall to wall-vomiting later on:
–  operation: impending doom XV is happing next saturday, the 18th at the café xxè in fribourg. we’re having
zatokrev and mycelia playing, plus djs hq, mara and winekellar spinning the wheels of steel (or plastic, for that matter), we’re doing bbq on the balcony, the cal of ror-guys will put up a cd-/vinyl-shop, plus stemutz.ch and llyrdwen are exposing some nice pictures taken over the course of the last o:ids. i wouldn’t want to miss this if i were you…
remote lane will be playing the metal assault-festival in grand-vennes/lausanne on the 1st october, w/ samael etc.
saïko records will be hosting a festival at the nouveau monde in fribourg on the 5th and 6th of november, featuring some of the greatest indie bands from switzerland…

oh yeah, no rest of the wicked. see you all out there!

looking back on the last weeks, plus new events

while it seems everybody is calming down and kind of letting 2009 passing by, i’m already scheduling tons of new events out for the next months to come.
the last couple of weeks i had quite the run, mixing a bunch of great shows such as:
– attack vertical @ kiff/aarau (w/ arch enemy, abigail williams)
– zatokrev @ children of doom-festival/l’aeronef/lille (w/ general lee, amenra, etc.)
– attack vertical @ festival roule l’appel/romont (w/ pulup orchestra, persiana jones, etc.)
– yog @ lux/le locle (w/ lost sphere project, rorcal)

obviously those were quite some trips to remember, and i’m still dragging a cold around from the trip to lille, but all in all i’m quite happy how things turned out.

anyhow, here’s a bunch of locals events, and/or events i’m somewhat responsible for, that i highly recommend:

091226 – cideraid @ bad bonn/düdingen (w/ timor)
this will be cideraid’s last local show for quite some time before they record the new album!
100113 – saïko records presents: high fidelity w/ fredy rotten @ nouveau monde/fribourg
090115 – full metal x @ nouveau monde/fribourg (w/ a thousand year slavery, falling down, cryless)
100128 – dj el muerte @ café le xxéme (from folk to grind II)
100130 – cideraid @ wenk/aarau (w/ zyanide)
100206 – operation: impending doom XII @ café le xxéme (w/ shadows far, calcined, dj)
