*Shels Studio Report – The Amp Bunker.

October 13, 2009

Recording for *shels‘ 2nd studio Album is finally underway – having tracked the drums with Peter Miles (www.myspaace.com/petermiles) in the UK earlier this summer, the construction of a DIY studio at Shelsmusic HQ in Los Angeles commenced earlier this week.

Since we couldn’t escape into the wilderness to make this record as originally planned, we needed a sound-proof fortress built for the Peavey 5150, so we could blast the amp in peace without killing neighbours…  it’s called the amp bunker… kinda like a sex bunker.. but filthier and more brutal.

after a ton of blisters, splinters and a few tests, we’re happy to report it’s all working pretty well…  and we should begin tracking the first of the guitars tomorrow:)

for you gearslutz out there – you might be interested to know we’re using classical guitars through a 5150 combo dirty channel for our heavy guitar sound. The first 5 of you to email us at shels@shelsmusic.com after reading this will get to hear a sample 🙂

all hail the Amp Bunker of Doom!
