Mixing and Mastering songs with Clear-Punch-Dynamic character My name is Ilias Gogakis, I am the owner of Vowlume Productions. My studio is specialized in Rock and Metal music, but I am always open to work on other genres as well
Vowlume Produtions is a mixing and mastering studio in the northern suburbs of Athens. I approach every project individually, because every musician and every band's vision is different. I am trying to reach their musical vision, by providing substantial help while I am mixing and mastering music by a creative way and always staying true to creator's original vision. I treat each project like being my own, as I never forget how I started as a musician. I always work close with you in order to provide the best possible result as you originally had dreamed of.
We welcome bands and artists from all over the world
The best part of the day is when the client comes back to me saying "This is what I had in mind. It sounds great"

Hey, folks, it's Darken from Thulnar here (an extreme symphonic metal band from Italy). Well, what can I say about this studio? The main thing is they're honest. I've really wondered around the globe to find someone able to record something at honest prices and with experience in my genre in particular. So contact Ilias with no fear, he's the man!
Mastersound studio rocks!!!
Let's rock this joint!!! \m/
