The new songs have a more modern vibe to them and sound absolutely killer!

This time around the style is more mature and powerfull while still maintaining their special sound.

New gear!
170809 The studio has just been updated with some nice new pre-amps as well as a nice pair of matched condenser mics which are just perfect for drum overheads and acoustic guitar miking. Besides spending the whole weekend testing out the new gear, the whole studio has also been rewired to provide an even better workflow during sessions.

Six String Slaughter
170109 Six String Slaughter are working on their first release in the form of the "The World Slaughter EP" and as I'm personally involved in this project, this has been a geat opportunity to really experiment with recording and production techniques in order to tailor some sort of signature sound for SSS.

New name and new design!
171008 In order to specify what the studio is all about and is capable of, the Niflheim name has been discontinued in favor of the more describing name
