THEATRE OF TRAGEDY: Breaking Barriers On "Assembly"
THEATRE OF TRAGEDY drummer Hein Frode Hansen recently commented on the making of the group's upcoming Assembly CD, which is scheduled to be released on March 4th in Europe and April 16th in the US. "While working on our last two records, we have made demos of the keyboards and programming in a studio of our own,” Hansen told Release magazine. “After that, we have recorded the guitars, acoustic drums and vocals, and this has lead to a record with a sound that has been more separated or synthetic than we had expected. This time we arranged the basics of the songs, with drums, bass, guitar and keyboard melodies, in the rehearsal room, and after that, added more keyboards, programming and vocals. This has made Assembly a more organic affair.
"The record is more of a unit in itself than our previous ones. It also has more power and is more compact, without losing the ambience and low key variations. It contains everything — from industrial punk metal, to electronic goth rock and ambient pop. Something for every taste. Maybe it's kind of a record outside the genres."
