Producer's Diary entry #1

As I listen to the most recent tracks we've done of guitars back, I'm content and satisfied with them. I was at first a little worried with the leads because when you listen to them at first (which I did as lead guitarist Vaz was tracking) they may sound a bit odd at first. However listening this afternoon with a bit more clarity, it all makes sense. In fact the performances were good, I admit it was a bit of a blur after tracking leads on 2 songs for 4 hours yesterday with Vaz. We're at the 13th and 14th tracks with a few leads missing from 2-3 songs of the current batch of 12. Vocals are yet to be done and keyboards...not to mention much MUCH mixing after the purchase of monitors which is the majority of my producer's fee. All in all everything has been done in order and with organization though I'm worried how many more months are actually ahead before the album's release as we should get 90% of the tracks fully completed by September before school is back in session.

So for those following the progress of DLI's debut LP, it's still too early to tell how any completed track will sound. Stay tuned however as I'll be posting more blogs and probably YouTube video diaries with sound clips.

sound out,

Welcome...

Hello all,

If you are here it's probably because you are familiar with the band Dead Light Inside.

This will be the official place to get all your updates and news on their debut album currently in the works.

My name is Matt Romero and I am producing their album. I can tell you right now that it's going to be something very special and something that if you like heavy rock, metal or just good music you are going to want to stick around.

Also this is the place to be to start hearing some previews, as this site will be linked to Reverbnation, an incredible music site for indie artists. At some point you'll be able to stream music on the sidebar of this blog.

Photos and videos are to come as well or at least planned. We would like to let you, the listener, be a part of this journey. The music industry is dying at a fast pace, and now in a DIY (do-it-yourself) world everyone is out on their own fending for themselves. It's a sad reality and in the end the corporate suits are cashing their last chips while leaving us, the actual artists struggling to be heard in a saturated online society. We will prevail however...and it starts now with good music and bands that deserve to be discovered.

So enough ranting from me, stay tuned, as this blog will quickly turn its attention to the actual making of the album. We are about 2 months in recording once a week so far with about 6 songs semi-tracked.

Feel free to comment, ask questions and add the band on Facebook! I also have a Twitter account @mattromeromusic feel free to ask me anything and follow me there.

See you all again soon,
M
