A Look Inside the 'Haven' Recording Sessions with Kamelot

Symphonic-metal heavyweights, Kamelot, have spent this winter locked inside Lala Mansion Recording Studios in Tampa, FL, conjuring up and laying down the tracks for their highly anticipated new album, Haven, which is scheduled to be released on May 5th.  Serving as the follow-up to their 2012 studio release, Silverthorn- which debuted at the No. 9 position on the Billboard Hard Rock Albums Chart during the time of its release- Haven will feature 13 new must-hear tracks along with offering multiple exclusive and limited edition bundle packages courtesy of Napalm Records.  Leading up to the release-date of Haven, Kamelot have uploaded several in-studio teasers that offer fans a behind-the-scenes look into the recording process.  Kamelot’s latest studio update can be viewed below.

When asked about the recording of the new album, Pearl Artist, Casey Grillo, states:

“The new music is heavy and kind of getting back to the sound of our older CDs, like ‘Black Halo.’”  Casey continues, “Being able to break out my favorite Pearl snare drums is always a blast- the 14x5 Session Studio Classic, 14x6.5 Ultracast, and 14x5 the Reference Series…just massive sounds…”

For the recording process of the new album, Pearl Artist, Casey Grillo, has once again turned to his trustworthy and proven Reference Series drums, which he has continually relied upon since he joined the Pearl Drums Artist Roster in 2008.  For more information on Casey Grillo, including full specs on his Reference Series drum setup, please click here.
