Doomain was recorded at Annoying Sound Factory & SolnaSound Recording by the band with a little assistance engineering from Mike Wead (KING DIAMOND) during the lead guitar sessions. The mix was done by Dan Swanö at Unisound.
Comments the band: “The recording of Doomain must be the most relaxed album session we’ve ever done. We recorded most of the album ourselves in our own studio and took the time we wanted and needed to get it done. Dan Swanö helped us getting the rig together and he provided us with the tools to do it and from there we did it ourselves. The lead guitar sessions were done at SolnaSound Recording by Simon & Mike Wead. When it all was done it was sent to Dan Swanö and Unisound for mix and mastering. The final album is amazing and we are so thrilled to get it out to all of you”
Doomain will be released the 12th/15th of April via Metal Blade Records in Europe on vinyl, as a standard jewelcase-CD and as a limited Digi-CD with bonus-CD!
The bonus-disc features unreleased and rare tracks and pre-production recordings for the album Verdict Of Posterity. Comments MEMORY GARDEN: “It’s 2 pre-production recordings for the “Verdict of Posterity” album. Both sounding better than the actual album which turned out quite disappointing sound wise. It’s not polished, but it’s raw and energetic. Mike Wead has just recently re-mastered these six songs”
