The third part of the interview! "Luxi: Did you ever, at one of those "low moments," consider recording somewhere else with a different, and possibly more experienced, studio producer?
Nuclear Holocausto: We had no problems with the studio or recording engineer. I knew exactly what kind of atmosphere I wanted and the sound engineer respected our views. Later in my career, I noticed that if the engineer is too skilled and familiar with the genre, he begins to fix mistakes and add his own views as to how it should be done. That is not a good thing because I want to save that raw edge of a live recording.
Luxi: How collective a record was Drawing? Did everyone participate in the creative process or would you say you just needed a drummer and a bassist to play on the record, as rude and harsh as that may sound?
Nuclear Holocausto: Because we were suffering from colds, we had a few days to play with other instruments in order to get ready for all the recordings. The drum technique was very different compared to the previous sessions I had with S. Slaughter.
Luxi: What made you decide on the cover artwork for this record and did you have other options available?
Nuclear Holocausto: I had not thought about the cover art at all and when I was handing over the master tape to Riku, at Spinefarm in Helsinki, he arranged about fifteen minutes of time in the Lehtikuva archives for me. Now, you have to remember that we lived in the time before the Internet or actual databases. As I recall, it was one of NASA's images and I've always been interested in space." #beherit
