Joona Lukala went to Kuopio to record The Exploding Eyes Orchestra – I album.
Basic tracks were recorded live, the band was playing in the same room. Lukala used a lot of room mics to capture bands sound. Instruments were also close-miked to give more choices in the mixing stage.
We used several amps and a lot of guitar pedals to find personal guitar sound to every song
All additional instrument were tracked after whole band sessions were done.
Vocals were recorded after all instruments were done. I mostly tracked vocals with hand held Heil sound PR35 dynamic microphone to give singer more freedom to move and get that live vibe that band is famous for
