Danish death/thrash metallers URKRAFT entered Antfarm studios on July 16 with renowned producer Tue Madsen to begin the two-week recording session for their hotly anticipated Earache Records debut, "The Inhuman Aberration". Frontman Thomas checked in with the following update on the recording sessions:
"Last week went really smoothly. We managed to put down all rhythm guitar, bass and keyboard without any problems. The sound is already at this unmixed state incredible and it is amazing to get to know the new material 100%. Especially the keyboard, which actually pulled out some teeth in the process, has turned out really good. The role it will be playing in the finished result is far more noticeable compared to our debut.
"This Tuesday we were accompanied by Kral from the melodic progressive metalers MERCENARY and he managed to lay down chorus vocals on two tracks in a few hours. The whole session ended up with all of us hanging outside the studio, having a well-deserved party all night, going on 'till the ability to speak and communicate left us.
"Since then we have been concentrating on recording some pre-takes for vocals and Birk has placed himself in front of the computer with a collection of 5 ESP guitars, throwing out some of the fastest and most interesting leads we have ever had in URKRAFT.
"We will continue to work hard and with the main goal to be finished Sunday in order to start mixing the whole thing early Monday morning."
Formed in the small Danish provincial town of Svendborg and now residing in Copenhagen, URKRAFT released their debut album, "Eternal Cosmic Slaughter", in March 2004.
