Here is a look inside the studio with Gorgasm's Kyle Christman, tracking 'Visceral Discharge,' from the most recent record "Destined To Violate." This is the fourth full-length from the band, and was released on New Standard Elite Records. The album was recorded and mixed at Belle City Sound (formerly Studio One) in Racine, WI. Drums used are Pearl Masters MCX. All Saluda cymbals, aside from one Zildjian Z Custom Mega Bell ride cymbal. Drum pedals are Axis longboard A21 custom, with deep rockers and heavy duty springs. Kyle is currently endorsed by Axis Percussion and Saluda Cymbals.
When we asked Kyle about the entire recording process, his response was simple: "We decided to do absolutely no sampling, quantizing, or editing of the drums on this album. All one-take play-throughs, and no click tracks... to keep the natural live feel and sound."

Two years have passed since drummer Dan Presland and Ne Obliviscaris released their debut album, ‘Portal of I’, and since then the band have grown into one of Australia’s biggest exports. After recent successful tours alongside Devin Townsend, Enslaved, Cradle of Filth and more, the band are currently in the midst of crowd funding a massive world tour via Pozible, a target which they reached and surpassed in just 38 hours upon its initial press release.
Having managed to raise a remarkable $40,000 in this short period of time (in turn, breaking the Australian record of $60,736 for music related crowd funding in only 10 days), Ne Obliviscaris now currently sit on $74,689 raised (at time of printing) with 10 days remaining. Their world tour is set to include Europe, UK, North America, India, Japan, China, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South East Asia, and Australia.
This exclusive Sick Drummer Magazine play-through for "Tapestry of The Starless Abstract," is track number 1 on the 2012 record 'Portal of I.' We have also uploaded "Of Petrichor Weaves Black Noise" to our YouTube Channel. Dan will be getting a new kit from Pearl in the near future and will record some play-through's from the recently released, 'Citadel.'
