The Element – New Album “From Sand PT II” Drums sessions at Robert Lang Studios

Hi Everyone,

During the beginning of November, The Element spent 3 full days at the amazing Robert Lang Studios in Seattle/WA to record drums for our upcoming album “From Sand PT II”.

With the help of our mastering engineer Kee Curlee and his assistant Hunter, we had an amazing time and the tones that we got were simply outstanding, we cannot wait to share this album when it’s out, so please, stay tuned for it!

For those who don’t know about Robert Lang Studios, some of their clients are Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Queensryche, Alice in Chains, Dave Matthews Band, Pamela Moore, Peter Frampton, Soundgarden and the list goes on and on and on. Robert is a true rockstar and he was as always super welcoming and pleasant to be around! As I’ve said before, once you record drums in that room, you will NEVER want to record them anywhere else. It is simply magical.

I have a lot of pictures that we took from the sessions, we have videos and a lot more material which will be out at some point too! If you want to take a peek at the pictures, they are all on my official page.

Thank you so much for stopping by and , stay tuned for some mind blowing songs that will come your away soon!
