Kurt Ballou Producing New Ramming Speed LP
This is righteous as fuck.
Boston-based rock-and-roll metal punks Ramming Speed just completed a nine-day stint in a recording studio bringing new life to new music.
They’ve been tracking songs at Salem, Massachusetts’ Godcity studio with legendary heavy music engineer Kurt Ballou.
You know, the Kurt Ballou from Converge who has also produced albums by Black Breath and Kvelertak.
The 13-song LP — called Doomed to Destroy, Destined to Die — will be the band’s second LP.
Three years in the making, the new album will showcase the band’s efforts at refining their amalgam of d-beat hardcore, thrash, classic rock and grind.
The new riffs are both memorable and punishing, offering heaps of dual guitar harmonies and solos alongside furious blasting and enraged vocals, reads a press release.
Ramming Speed have completed the recording process as an independent act and will be soliciting labels for a potential 2012 release.
The final mix will be finished in mid April before being shipped off for mastering.
