Alex Rudinger: Revocation - "Dismantle The Dictator"



I recorded this play-through at the same time as my video for 'Madness Opus' by Revocation. As some of you already know, I filled in for Revo on tour a few months back while their drummer was recovering from an arm injury. Had a blast with the dudes! This is one of the tougher songs that I learned & was a ton of fun to record.

Huge thanks/shout-out to Dan Gargiulo of Revocation for recording the guitar track used in this mix. The alternative would have been to try and mix my recorded drums with a filtered version of the album track (which would have been terrible). So THANK YOU Dan!

Also big thanks to Adam 'Nolly' Getgood for the mix job! Nolly continues to blow me away with every mix he does; it's a pleasure hearing what he can do with the sounds I capture here at home.
