After finishing up Harmagedon it was time to dig into the bonus tracks. That should be an easy day – since they are less complicated, and fairly straight forward. We have a full band one, two acoustic ones and a compilation of only the orchestra. So Rich was blazing through them, and made them sound really good. Still it took all day to finish, but Rich is Rich. Once he get’s into it, he’ll just goes in deep and before you know it you are spending hours on little details. But it’s all those little details that will make the album sound good or not. So by the time Joe Holmes came in, Rich was almost done with the bonus tracks. This means that tomorrow we are done with the basic mixing! Can’t wait to move on!
