Default Kurt Balou - Thought For The Day

Came across this quote from the 'God Amongst Metal Producers', Kurt Balou [Converge] from a past interview in Tape Op:

"Indie pop productions require more insight as to the song and lyrics and what kind of feeling the songwriter's trying to evoke. When you're recording a metal band you KNOW what feeling they're trying to evoke. You just think "Satan, Satan, Satan." When you're eq'ing the bass, you're like "Satan, Satan, Satan." The snare drum - "Satan, Satan." It's more the technical challenge of, "How do I achieve the maximum amount of Satan?"

-Kurt Ballou




(Apologies if this has already appeared somewhere in the forum - I promise to pay more attention in class next time)
