BlackboxRed – The Gunner and The Ghost CD
In March 2013 BlackboxRed travelled to France for the recording of their debut album. This wasn't done in a regular studio, no, they build a complete studio in a 17th century mansion in a remote area of Northern France.
The acoustics of the old house played a big part in the overall sound of the album. At a certain point the weather conditions were so extreme that the band was snowbound, completely shut off from the outside world, which resulted in a loud, grandiose, sometimes spooky atmosphere in the songs.
The album is produced and recorded by Chris Hamilton, a good friend and hero of the band, with his travelling studio "EEK! Recordings".
