This is Sanahtes's debut EP. We are proud to present it to you.
It was a long, LONG time, for only four songs but, we wanted to do it properly, even if it meant to release it very late.
We weren't bound by any deadlines and just took our time to let it grow and learn by ourselves the process of producing a solid, personnal and honest record.
This record WASN'T made in a proper recording studio, and every single track you'll hear was recorded in our bedrooms with modest gear.
The drums were played on an electronic kit, edited, the MIDI files translated with drum samples.
The bass guitar tones were achieved with a cheap Peavey Millenium BXP 5, Seymour Duncan pickups, and a Line6 Pod X3 Live.
The guitar tones are a blend of Axe FX 2 tones, some of them were created by ourselves, some others were found on the internet (OLA ! ) or given by our good friend Clément Belio, who also lent us his great ears and talent to advice on the final touches on the record.
We also used a Marshall MF350 Mode Four head, straight from the emulated output. That amp is present on the whole, entire record. This amp isn't very popular, but it's one of the heaviest sounding piece of gear we have.
Several guitars were used :
Ibanez RG2228 White.
Ibanez RG2228 Galaxy Black ( Lundgren M8 )
Ibanez M80M Meshuggah Signaure ( Lundgren M8 )
Black Machine Siggery Heresy thru 8
Fender Stratocaster USA with Jeff Beck signature pickups. .
Gretsch Electromatic Corvette G5135.
All vocals were recorded with a Shure SM7B Microphone in Fabien's bedroom.
This record was inpired by a shitload of artists and stories, our lives, the music we love, passion for loud, low noises and cannabis. You will hear echoes from a lot of things you might already have heard. That's absolutely normal.
"There are no truly original ideas ever, only original combinations of preceding concepts. "
