In November 2012 I uploaded a drum cover of "Grand Gathas Of Baal Sin" by Melechesh. Melechesh themselves saw the video and reposted it on their Facebook page. After this, I was contacted by the band Dalla Nebbia from South Carolina about drumming on their upcoming album.

I get a lot of messages regarding me recording for bands, and none of them really peak my interest, but after I checked out Dalla Nebbia, I was intrigued. They play a very great mix of Atmospheric Black Metal with some Progressive elements to it as well.

I will be hitting the studio next month to lay down some drum tracks for 7 of their songs, plus a Windir cover. I am currently planning on being a full time member and recording their follow up album as well.

I have 4 drum demo videos up on my YouTube channel.


Going to hit the studio in a week from today to record the songs! I am super stoked.

I forgot what city the main guy was from, but he just moved. The other two members are in different locations as well. Vocalist in the mid-west, I believe Minnesota, and the bassist is in Brazil, but all three of them went to college together in SC.

It's strictly a studio project, but man... I sure would love to perform with them live!

Day 1 went amazing. We took about 5-6 hours just to set up the mic's and make sure everything sounded good. I was drumming the entire time, so I was more than warmed up when we finally got into the real thing.

We blasted through 4 songs (the 4 songs I knew the best and that I knew I could nail) and called it a day. Half of the songs was more than what we were originally planning on. We decided that every sloppy drum fill I did would be called a Fill Anselmo.

Day 2 was a bitch! I had two songs that I was comfortable with and knew I could nail, and two songs that I knew would be a bitch. We recorded the hardest song last, and 3 hours later had something great! We started to worry that we would run out of time, but we got it (at least to the point where it was workable and would be good with the small edit here and there).

Overall I had a blast. It was a much more fun time than when I recorded the last Funeral Age CD because A) I actually knew how to play off a click and not be too stiff, and B) I was friends with the guy producing it, so we could have a good time and not have to be TOO serious.

I can't wait to hear the final version! I am so insanely happy with my drum tracks, especially the 4 songs from day one, because all of the fresh energy was there.

I ended up using a Ludwig snare drum the studio owned, and OMG it was amazing. The little snare rolls that I improvised during the recordings gave me a .....good feeling that it would sound awesome when finalized :eyes: . I feel I could have done the two hardest songs a bit better, but that could just be me criticizing my drumming, as always :lol:

Sending the files off to the East Coast for the guitarist to work his magic with and hopefully getting released within a month or two :rocker:

I am in this band, yes. I am the vocalist/lyricist for Dalla Nebbia. It's been a passion project for me and my cohort for some time. He sent me a midi file of a few melodies he was working on a few years ago. And I wrote some lyrics. From then, it's been a big effort to find musicians willing to make it a full-fledged band. Now, it's a reality and we are overjoyed.

Our origins are the small town of Lugoff, South Carolina, but as John has already said, we are spread out now. North Carolina, Missouri, Washington state, and South America.

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 12:42 AM.
