Mastering for an industrial album

Postby DownstrikeVox » December 12th, 2008, 2:43pm

Hi all,

I'm in a heavy industrial rock band, equal parts metal and synthy dance, and we're working on the final mix for our first full length album. I'm engineering it myself, and it's sounding killer. We'd like to have it professionally mastered though. Do any of you have any recommendations as to who would be good to consider for this type of music? It doesn't have to be local.

Also, how far in advance should one book a mastering job? And I would imagine turnaround times would vary quite a bit, right?

Thanks!

If you have the budget, look at the credits of some records that you like sonically. Get in touch with those mastering houses and see what they say. You should be planning now with the Mastering engineer because they may want various versions of mixes (VOx up or down, various levels of compression or EQ, etc...). Give them what they want and you'll get a better job more quickly (which means less $$).

For what its worth, SAE Mastering out of Arizona mastered KMFDM's "symbols" album (which they list as "KMFDM") on CD, and "Anarchy" single on vinyl...

My old band Dai Atlas sent a 2-song single to them to master, and i think we all had a favorable experience about it...

I ran into this just now, if it's helpful for anyone else.

On the off chance that you have the monetary allowance, take a gander at the credits of a few records that you like sonically. Reach those mastering houses and see what they say. You ought to be arranging now with the Mastering specialist in light of the fact that they may need different renditions of blends (VOx up or down, different levels of pressure or EQ, etc...). Issue them what they need and you'll improve work all the more rapidly...........
