CLIENTS & SOUND SAMPLES.

Contact: info@darkprod.com

The clients are of course the most important ambassadors of Dark Prod Studios. If we do a bad job, people will hear about it, if we do a good job, people will hear about it too. That is why we also have the satisfaction guarantee that we are very proud over. Nobody should leave Dark Prod feeling that more could have been done. I tend to say we when I write about the studio, because I kind of include some clients close to heart in that we. But for now at least I, Andreas ”Seidr Jonsson” Westholm is the only sound technician working at Dark Prod Studios. I am currently also active in two bands, guitars in Serpent Omega (Doom/Sludge) & guitars and vocals in SEID (Norse Black Metal), which started as a one man project, but now has a three person line up for studio work, and a six person line up for live shows. Here is what we did together so far my fellow Dark Prodders, a bit over 75 bands listed here and most of them with sound samples and some of them with quotes gathered now in November 2022.

Skål from Jonsson at Dark Prod!

MARA (SWEDEN)

Old school norse black metal! Mara – Loka Mær was Mixed and Mastered here at Dark Prod. Not for posers.

Mara (Sweden)

Your name/alias:

Your opinion?
Seiðr have an eye for details and can really capture the big picture of an album. In our case he managed to bring forward our opinions and suggestions and that is not many who have that capability. He knows the underlying laws regarding black metal and should be highly respected.

TOT AUS DEM WALD (GERMANY)

Let us for a third time present Tot Aus Dem Wald. Evil, mad, cold and gnarly in a good way. This new (nov 2022) album ”Satan no Mono” was reamped, mixed and mastered here at Dark Prod. Their two albums before this was mastered here. (2021 Disziplin-des-hohen-feuers, and 2020 Kulte-primitivster-verehrung ) The sound could possibly be a tiny bit inspired by Darkthrone…

Band name:
Tot Aus Dem Wald (Germany)

Your name/alias:
Das Kakophoniäh (One man band anyway)

What did I do for you/your band?
SEIDR mastered the 2020 album, mastered the 2021 album and mixed and mastered the 2022 album

How many times did we work together so far?
We worked together since first meeting in 2020

Your opinion?
SEIDR has done a fantastic job with each work order. He is very nice, quick to respond and knows what he is doing. I really enjoy working with him and highly recommend his studio. I wouldn’t want any other. In my case it’s about raw/lo-fi Black Metal/oldschool sound and he does it very well. He is also very knowledgeable in this area. In that respect… full 666 points from Satan!

DAS KAKOPHONIÄH of TOT AUS DEM WALD
2022 – Tot Aus Dem Wald – Yuki, kälter als der Tod – Single/album mixed & mastered here at Dark Prod.

Your opinion?
You do great work, and are capable of creating any sound someone might ask for it seems. Usually when I receive praises for “an Gorta Mór” it is regarding the production. Worth every penny and I would do it the same way again if I were in the same living situation as that album. Talk soon, Skål Harry

Chuck BB

What did I do for you/your band?
Mixing & Mastering of album (2021) (including vinyl mastering)

How many times did we work together so far?
Just once so far, but I intend on utilizing your services again.

Your opinion?
I found working with Dark Prod to be an excellent experience.  Jonsson knows the extreme & underground sounds, and is extremely professional.  I came to him with a project I had recorded on my own, as a novice.  I had a rough idea of what I wanted the sound to be like, but Jonsson delivered above and beyond.  From the first sample mix I knew I had found the right guy (Not everyone understands what real metal needs to sound like).  I had a lot of questions, and they were all answered.  We went through a number of iterations, and communicating with Jonsson was fast and easy.  I look forward to the next time I can work with Jonsson & Dark Prod.
