Who played Drums on Shadowlands?

Post by Mark of Cenla » Sat Jul 24, 2004 12:09 pm

I have four Glass Hammer CDs, and am thinking of buying Shadowlands. Before I do, I would really like to know who is playing drums. Thanks.

Fred Schendel plays on Shadowlands. Matt Mendians will be doing our studio drumming on the next album.

Yep. Matt gets tp play drums and Walter gets to play guitar, Eric gets to play acoustic- but I still get to play steel guitar! It's the exact same band as the NEARfest band on the album we're working on.

or a choir?

lol Fred- good news about using Matt on drums- that probably had been many people most consistant complaint about your music, the fact the drums were mostly synth, and really had a well... programmed feel to them. :wink:

The drums are usually triggered from a variety of sound modules. But yes, the complaints will go away. Though I'm sure new complaints will arise. lol

Matt on drums

Post by KindStranger187 » Thu Jun 16, 2005 10:44 pm

I'm glad to see that Matt did the drumming on the new album. I thought he did a fantasitic job on the Lex Live DVD. He's a very talented drummer (with some very interesting facial expressions)!

He almost seems to be in pain or incredible discomfort while he plays. Must be the daily beatings and psychological torture. :roll: I see its paying off!
And now for something completly different...

Even though there isn't a genuine drummer on this album it's still an excellent listen .

::cough:: :evil:

I'll pretend you didn't say that.

It's not like they just had a drum machine- Fred can actually play a kit- look at the bonus vids on Lex Live....

Did Fred play a real kit for the album :?:
I know the guy is extremely talented and I have seen him playing a kit on the DVD but I didn't think he had laid all the drum tracks with a kit. :o
