Frantic Amber, a Swedish female metal band has in collaboration with SWP recorded a total

using a Mesa Dual Rectifier, Engl Powerball and Engl 4x12's, ESP, Jackson and Yamaha guitars, Pearl drums, Sabian cymbals, Rode and Shure mic's and Trace Elliot bass gear. The girls have done most the recording themselves but parts was recorded by Lasse and he is also in charge of mixing the production.
At present only the video version of Wrath Of Judgement is released but the rest of the tracks will soon follow. There's also a full length version of Wrath Of Judgement being released in the full 5-song demo package.

This is the video:


By popular demand we've made a habit of listing software used in the recording:

like the sound you can get a good idea of how it was achieved). The listings are not in order
of use.
