BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING, the newly launched electro-metal studio project from MARAZENE producer Dietrich Thrall, has posted a studio update, including stills of the band's recent recording sessions at Bell Labs Recording in Norman, Oklahoma. The shots feature drummer Chris Emery of AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE and SKINLAB guitarist Provo Provenzano, who engineered the marathon 15-hour session.
Commented Thrall: "[We] managed to get 7 of the 14 BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING songs we were aiming for. Very pleased we got that far. Was a pretty crazy session overall in terms of how many tracks we were shooting for. We just dove right in and got as many as we could before our ears threw in the towel."
