Alex Rudinger: Ordinance - "Of The Fatherland"

To anyone that doesn't know - Ordinance is a studio side-project that I've been working in since I was a teenager, alongside some of my best friends from Maryland. We self-released our debut album 'Internal Monologues' back in 2011, and started working on a follow-up shortly thereafter. Life has taken many different turns for all of us since then, but we decided a long time ago to keep this project alive as a studio effort, just for fun.

This drum play-through acts as the debut for "Of The Fatherland" taken from our upcoming album 'The Ides Of March', available worldwide 2/26/16. Being that this is a drum video, I chose to keep the audio here instrumental. The album version does indeed have vocals!

Mixing for this video was done by Adam 'Nolly' Getgood. As always, it's super hella mad sick. I am particularly fond of what he was able to do with the snare in this mix - gotta love that Bell Brass! Drums are all natural, minus the kick which is a blend of trigger/mic (Beta91).
