Jorzine.com have the exclusive premiere of the new studio video from the Jordanian Dark Oriental Metallers BILOCATE, taken from the recording sessions of the band’s upcoming album “Summoning The Bygones”.
You can check the video here: http://www.jorzine.com/default.aspx?page=news&id=1074&month=2&year=2012
The recording sessions took place in 4 different countries (Jordan, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Sweden), while the mixing and mastering sessions took place at Fascination Street Studio in Sweden, with producer Jens Bogren. The video also features some parts of “Summoning the Bygones” tracks, and the contribution of Metal icon Dan Swano with the band.
Sharing BILOCATE’s memories and first days, the band’s keyboardist Waseem Essayed said:
“I’d never forget the first days for BILOCATE, and Summoning the Bygones is actually about bringing back those memories… I still remember when Hani used to pick his classic guitar and visit me and Ramzi and I assembled a drumkit made of plastic pots and stuff my mom used for cooking, and we just jammed together… and I still remember how many times we imagined how BILOCATE should be… and I still remember when Ramzi used to work and study at the same time for like 14 hours a day and still have a couple of hours to growl and headbang with us… and I still remember when I first met Baha’ and had the first music session with him and asked him if he has any compositions in hand, and he showed me a guitar line he composed while being upset about a maths exam he had the next day… and I still remember when I called Baha’ and was so excited like “Man I’ve bought a computer, come on pick up your gear and get over here let’s try to record and mix something to see how it would sound!”… and I still remember how it felt when we finished the recording of 2nd War in Heaven demo… and I still remember when Rami joined in and we started working all the 5 of us like a real band… and I still remember when we released Dysphoria album and how we got featured on the local official radio… and I still remember our first gig back in 2006… and I still remember all the success we went through from 2006 to 2011, the videos, the live performances, the times we travelled together, the attention we received from the international scene, the contracts, the people, Sudden Death Syndrome album, pressure, happiness, learning, and developing…
If I’m to say everything I would actually write a book, but at this time I just want to say I’d never forget BILOCATE! This video of studio moments will also become a nice memory which we’ll feel proud about, and I hope our fans and friends would also feel the same.
Now we’re so much near to releasing Summoning the Bygones, so we hope you’d enjoy few minutes to see some of the work undertaken to put it all together.”
