Vancouver-based Trailight, launched by photographer-turned-musician Omer Cordell, is currently work on a new album, The Primitive Mountain. Cordell has posted a 30 minute behind-the-scenes look at the production which can be viewed below:
Devin Townsend Project drummer Ryan van Poederooyen was asked to record the drum tracks for the album. He has checked in with the following update:
“Here is a song from an album I recorded a month after recording the Z2 double album in 2014. The band is called Trailight, it has many guest appearances from other well know bands; guys like Dave Padden (Annihilator, Terror Syndrome), Jed Simon (Scar The Martyr, ex-SYL), Christofer Malmstrom (Darkane, Non Human Level) and numerous other guest appearances including my close friend Conan Freeman. Here’s a sneak peek into the sound of this record. I really enjoyed playing drums on it and dug the tunes! Hope you guys dig it as well…. got some flashy drum parts in the middle of this tune Good times! Enjoy!”
Following is an update from Cordell issued from the studio during the recording sessions:
“The recording process for The Primitive Mountain has officially begun! An absolute incredible day at The Farm Studios. Ryan Van Poederooyen is an absolute monster of a drummer and has set the bar for the musicianship on this album to be very high! I don’t know of many people who have such an incredible command of their instrument. He nailed the entire album in under 10 hours with immense confidence and determination. It was an absolute treat to witness him in action like this. Here’s a short video of Ryan recording one of the more complicated drum parts on the album…”
