L to R: Mike Dean, Earthride bassist Rob Hampshire, drummer Eric Little, guitarist Kyle Vansteinburg and vocalist David Sherman
The hills and valleys of Raleigh, N.C., rumbled and quaked this fall when doom-metal band Earthride visited Sonic Wave Studios to record their second release for Southern Lord Records.
The Maryland-based group teamed with Mike Dean, bassist for thrash-metal trailblazers Corrosion of Conformity, who produced and engineered the project. The group recorded on the Sonic Wave’s 48-channel Neve 8108 console to MCI analog 24-track and then uploaded tracks into Pro Tools, which will be completed at C.O.C.’s project studio. In between sessions, Dean jetted down to New Orleans, where C.O.C. worked on their own forthcoming release for Sanctuary Records with Galactic drummer Stanton Moore.
