HATESPHERE frontman Jacob Bredahl has issued the following update on ALLHELLUJA, his Danish/Italian project featuring also featuring Stefano Longhi from Scarlet Records:
"Yeah, just finished the new ALLHELLUJA album ['Pain is the Game', due September 11 in Italy and September 25 in the rest of Europe via Scarlet] and just got the promos. It's great! This time it was harder for me to do the vocals — meaning there was a bit more expectations this time. AND the songs are more rock — and the songs are better. So that means that the vocals had to be better too...ha ha! I kind of knew what the style was and how I wanted to sing on it, but I really had to fight with it. Also, because I was my own judge, [there was] no one to guide me in the studio. It was late evenings alone, trying to do my best. I think it came out really good this time. I am proud of it. I am not a great singer at all — so I just used the tools that I have — especially the 'I fuck up my throat' tool... ha ha!
"About the mix: Well, when I first got the files I kind of knew what to to do with it and I did the the mix really fast. There was some problems with the guitars but got it fixed. As I started singing on it I changed the mix a little everytime I have finished the vocals on a song. So after I did the 10 songs I have changed the mix just a little 10 times. And suddenly it was perfect. Raw and dirty but yet clean and understandable.
"I think that 'Pain is the Game' is something special — think that this album has its own style and sound. Nothing else like this. Unique is the word."
