2014 has got off to a great start with myself, Eraldo Bernocchi and Ted Parsons (who has previously drummed with, among others Prong, Jesu, Swans, Godflesh and Killing Joke ) getting together at Faust Studios in Prague to commence work on the second Metallic Taste of Blood album.
Prague is certainly one the world's most beautiful cities with some great looking buildings, churches, statues, bridges and a rich, impressive history and atmosphere to rival any major European city, not to mention a selection of beers that could have seriously undermined the album writing process...
In order to match the intensity of the first album I hope that perhaps we managed to tap into that undercurrent of mysterious energy, which in ages past, attracted the likes of Edward Kelly among other alchemists, scientists, mystics and seekers to the city. I certainly felt something, within ten minutes of arriving at the studio I was confronted with an unlikely co-incidence which caused me to reflect on the nature of life itself…..some other strange things too….
Anyway, for now, some footage of us at work:
