DEICIDE/Ex-CANNIBAL CORPSE Guitarist Says ADRIFT CD Is 'By Far Best Record I Have Ever Done'

September 16, 2007

ADRIFT guitarist Jack Owen (also DEICIDE, ex-CANNIBAL CORPSE) has issued the following update on the recording process for the band's new album, "Absolution":

“We've finally finished the mix of our full length record, 'Absolution'. It took a little longer than we expected due to Mark Lewis (of AudioHammer Studios) being a very meticulous, detail-oriented guy. He really put in a lot of hard work and hours on our album, and he wouldn't let anything leave the studio without it sounding 100% killer, which it does. The mix is very big and open, while retaining a modern sound — and my guitars sound huge! In fact, I am happy to say that out of any album I have recorded in my career, I am most proud of this ADRIFT record, the songs are incredible, we captured great performances from all band members, and having Mark handle the mix was the proverbial icing on the cake. It is by far the best record I have ever done, and I can't wait for it to be released to see what people think of it.

"By the way, I feel so strong about this album that you can start adding ADRIFT behind my name, as in 'Jack Owen, formerly of CANNIBAL CORPSE, currently of ADRIFT and DEICIDE.' This record will make some waves — you'll understand when you hear it.”

Commented drummer Kevin Astl: "Mark did an excellent job, and we are very happy with the results. Now the album gets shipped off to West West Side Music in New Windsor, New York, where renowned mastering engineer Alan Douches (CONVERGE, MASTODON, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME) will handle the mastering duties. ADRIFT is honored that a much-coveted guy like Alan is mastering our record, his resume of over 6000 mastering credits of awesome bands speaks for itself. Be looking for a release date sometime in late October or early November 2007."
