genious in a smart kinda fashion
What does the new stuff sound like?
Like a bunch of Maudlin fellows jus' chillin' by the ol' Well.
I ABSOLUTELY can't wait for the new album...
I've been listening to Bath/Leaving all evening on my new speakers (serious audiophile shit, yo') and I can't believe how great the production is (I won't talk about how great the music is because you guys already know about that).
Dynamic as hell (screw compression), very organic and 'live' sounding, great drum sound and... well, everything sounds fine.
So anyway, dunno why I'm talking about that... Probably because I hadn't realized the sound was that good before getting these speakers (and my previous ones weren't crap either, heh)...
Keep up the good job guys and <insert some fanboy comment>!!!!!!!111 :hotjump:
That rules. I would like to take this space to plug Mr. Jim Fogarty who engineered (and sort of co-produced in a lot of ways) those albums, and the new one at Zing Recording. The guy is a phenomenal engineer and I feel extremely lucky that we found someone who is so good at what he does and so invested in the things he works on. He rules. And yes, fuck compressed-ass bullshit.
Oh, and wait til you hear the new one. Jim has topped himself and it sounds incredible.
Great! Are things going as planned? Is the tentative release date still "summer 2003"? And whatever the answer is, is that a good thing?
I mean, lots of my favourite books were the author's hardest to write...
I guess that the real question is; how does it work for you guys? Does your best material comes out when things are going smoothly, according to the plan or is it the other way around?
*tries not to turn this into an interview*
Awesome, I found the URL for Zing studio
Lets see what else has Mr. Fogarty worked on, maybe some stuff I'd be interested in...
Release date! Release date! Release date!!
people are paying attention:
(see the news item on the left)
WTF?! No more heavy songs or sections? BUT WHY?!?!?!
Surely this Digitalmetal article is wrong!
Boston-based avant-garde metallers Maudlin of the Well have officially parted ways with label Dark Symphonies, and announced they'll no longer compose music within the heavy metal spectrum.
"Maudlin of the Well and Dark Symphonies have officially parted ways," explains a Dark Symphonies press release to DigitalMetal. "Having released three highly acclaimed CD's under the Dark Symphonies banner, including their 1999 debut My Fruit Psychobell...a seed combustible, Maudlin of the Well will not be releasing their new CD with Dark Symphonies."
"After much discussion over the past couple of months, the band has reached the conclusion that the time is right to pursue a different direction in the music industry, and that new direction is with a label that doesn't promote their releases in the progressive, extreme metal market. Even though the band was under contractual obligations to release their next two releases with Dark Symphonies, both parties felt that it was in the best interest to go our separate ways."
"Maudlin of the Well have already secured a new label, and will release their new as-yet-untilted CD on Zorn Records (i.e., the avantgarde recording artist John Zorn's label) sometime at the end of 2003, beginning of 2004. Everyone at DS wish Maudlin of the Well nothing but the very best as they take their astral sounds into new and uncharted vistas."
Presently, Maudlin of the Well plan to have their fourth album ready by mid-July. No word on studio name, album title or song titles was given on their official website. Stay tuned for more on Maudlin of the Well.
Say it ain't so!!!!
Do they mean Tzadik recordings? There has not YET been a Zorn Records label
OK, the news is broken. Let me correct a few things. On a minor note, the label that the next album is coming out on will be Tzadik Records, which is John Zorn's label. It is the same one we've been working on for the past year at Zing Recording, and it's almost done. And if you've heard releases on Tzadik, you know that the move does not mean that we'll be releasing Yes cover albums from now on.
The article says "not in the heavy metal spectrum". This may be a correct statement from a marketing point of view, but it is not correct stylistically. Those of you who have heard the rough material know that it is still very heavy, in fact a great deal darker than the previous records.
The band has felt for some time that the metal scene was an inappropriate place to be. Yes, we have found many wonderful, dedicated fans in that scene, but we feel the band is limited by only being reviewed in metal magazines, playing metal shows, etc.
This is not to say we think the metal scene is total crap, or anything of that nature. We just think it's best for us to be elsewhere, and releasing a record on Tzadik is personally a dream come true. I've been walking on clouds for the past couple of weeks.
The record coming out on Tzadik is the very same one we've been working on for the past year. I'm not going to pull the typical band stuff and tell you how great the record is, but it's not like we've suddenly cast off everything we were working on.
I'll be writing some corrections to DigitalMetal shortly, as I think Dark Symphonies' press release mischaracterizes what is going on to some degree.
this wouldn't happen to have anything to do with a new fixture in josh's apt would it?
also: congrats X begillion-gillion.
congrats dudes! best of luck!
sorry to see that your press release is such a piece of shit, but that's the way those things go.
As part of which "series" on Tzadik will the disc be released?
AFAIK It will be on the Composer series. We are neither collectively Jewish or collectively Japanese....so those two were right out.
It's going to be kinda interesting cause I don't think there are any other groups on the composer series, and probably not much rock music either.
that is really awesome. i like what i have heard from Tzadik. and i like you, so it works out pretty well then.
You are reccording about an hour away from my home. I'm gonna go there and give you hug...see you soon.
Ya know, this thread's title is sort of obsolete now, innit?
Any info on shirts now that you guys are on Tzadik?
