Quantos Possunt Ad Satanitatem Trahunt - History - Recording


In April 2008, Infernus announced he was to depart for Stockholm, Sweden, where the next few months were spent rehearsing the material for QPAST in Tomas Asklund's Monolith Studio. In August 2008, it was announced that a pre-recording for QPAST was made with guitars, bass and drums. After having spent the previous few months rehearsing in Monolith Studio, Infernus said that he was working on arrangements with assistance from Tormentor.

On 4 December 2008, it was announced that former Gorgoroth vocalist Pest had returned, thus completing the band's lineup, both to record the new album and play future live performances.

The Gorgoroth name dispute concluded in March 2009, when Oslo District Court recognised Infernus as the legitimate owner of the band name. Shortly thereafter, recording of QPAST began with Tomas Asklund recording drum tracks in Monolith Studio. During this period Infernus also recorded the guitars, "manually recording six basic guitars".

Although it was announced in August 2008 that the guitar and bass lines would be recorded in the Laboratório 6 studio in Pindamonhangaba, Brazil with engineering help from Fabio Zperandio of Ophiolatry, once the trial pertaining to the Gorgoroth name dispute was scheduled to take place at the end of January 2009 these plans had to be abandoned and instead the band decided to continue the recording process in Monolith Studio. Furthermore, since Infernus wrote all the music for the album and extensive rehearsals and a pre-production recording had also been completed before second guitarist Tormentor rejoined the band the previous year, it was decided that it would be more convenient for Infernus to record all the guitars on the album.

Bøddel and Pest recorded bass and vocals respectively in June 2009, and the mixing process was finished by June 26. On July 6, 2009, it was announced that the album was to be mastered at the Cutting Room in Stockholm later that month and it was scheduled to be released on October 21 in Europe and November 11 in the USA. A tentative track listing was also revealed.

Famous quotes containing the word recording:

    Write while the heat is in you.... The writer who postpones the recording of his thoughts uses an iron which has cooled to burn a hole with. He cannot inflame the minds of his audience.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Too many photographers try too hard. They try to lift photography into the realm of Art, because they have an inferiority complex about their Craft. You and I would see more interesting photography if they would stop worrying, and instead, apply horse-sense to the problem of recording the look and feel of their own era.
    Jessie Tarbox Beals (1870–1942)

    He shall not die, by G—, cried my uncle Toby.
    MThe ACCUSING SPIRIT which flew up to heaven’s chancery with the oath, blush’d as he gave it in;—and the RECORDING ANGEL as he wrote it down, dropp’d a tear upon the word, and blotted it out for ever.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)
