about

Hail the Apocalypse was recorded live at Karma Sound Studios in Bang Saray, Thailand. Bands likeBullet For My Valentine have made records there, enveloped in a trippy/exotic locale not unlike KillingJoke making a record inside an Egyptian pyramid back in the day. The band then went on to Tobias Lindells' studio in Patong, also in Thailand to record vocals and guitar solos. The studio is located in a house owned by a horror movie buff that includes a swimming pool decorated like Castle Gray skull.

The plane ride over inspired an unexpected turn in the creation of Hail the Apocalypse. After they had become sufficiently buzzed from the plane’s bar, the band synched up their video screens to take in “Sound City,” Dave Grohl’s documentary love letter to the famed studio where seminal albums from the likes of Nirvana, Metallica, and Slipknot were made.

“After the documentary was over, we looked at each other and said, ‘We should totally record this album live.’ We were planning to do it in a more modern way, track­ by­ track, to a click track. But we said, ‘Screw it! Let’s do this live, the old­ fashioned studio way.’”

Avatar didn’t see much sunlight while in Thailand, opting instead to put their collective nose to the grindstone and work hard on what has become a hard rock masterpiece.
