    Day 5 - March 25, 2013: arrived in studio at 10 am this morning and spent most of the day by editing few drums tracks left + checking out different combinations of guitars / header amps. Riccardo should start recording some guitar lines already today if some time left. Just for the record: guitars recording sessions are scheduled until March 29, bass sessions on March 30-31. Check back here tomorrow for updates!

    Day 6 - March 26, 2013: after having been up until 2 am last night, searching for the best guitar sound (and finding it!), this morning was spent by setting up everything, tuning guitars, changing strings, etc. After lunch Riccardo started recording the first guitar lines and he'll go on until (late?) night. Needless to say: what heard so far sounds great!

    Day 7 - March 27, 2013: done rhythm guitars on three songs last night / today. We're a bit late on our schedule - it has taken quite a long time to set the guitar sound... but it was worth the time, that's definitely the 'tractor-sound' we expected the guitars to sound like!

    Day 10 - March 30, 2013: started very late today (around lunch time) - only one song done so far. Riccardo is recording the last one right now, we'll be staying in studio until late night. All guys of the band gathered here today to check things out before working on the further recording step (bass) next week.

    Day 12 - April 02, 2013: bass recording started this morning at 9:30 am. We've moved from Elfo studio in Tavernago (Pc) to Goblin studio in Piacenza for this session. Luca did an amazing job so far, 7 songs are already recorded - the goal is to finish them all within tonight...fingers crossed!

    Day 13 - May 04, 2013: reached Goblin studio in Piacenza this morning, set up everything and started to record vocal tracks. Today we have 2 producers at work: Daniele Mandelli + Alexander Lizzori. Two songs are done so far (one of them being the longest and most symphonic track of the new album), one more is planned within late afternoon. Endnote: Luca is performing greater than ever!

    Day 14 - May 05, 2013: Luca did two more songs today, and started to work on a new track few minutes ago (which is, btw, the first and only ballad written by Tragodia so far). Really exciting to be locked in the studio and listen to all these epic vocal lines while it's raining cats and dogs outside!

    Day 15 - May 06, 2013: all songs done!! Yes, yesterday Luca had a great exploit and recorded one song more than planned (four tracks in a day!), so the remaining two ones were easily done today. But this afternoon's session isn't finished yet: Luca is now recording a bonus track to be used somewhere in some limited edition of the new album...more details about this to be revealed shortly!

    Day 16 - May 29, 2013: mainly focusing on lead guitars reamp today at Elfo Studio in Tavernago (Pc). 6 out of 10 songs done so far, it looks we're gonna finish them all within today. We'll be working on keyboards / synths tomorrow. On a side note: we had to have a break around 1:00 pm in order to avoid any damages coming from electricity blackout as it started hailing outside like crazy (see photo).
