Ilias Gogakis on SoundBetter

Mastering songs with Clear, Punch and Dynamic character My name is Ilias Gogakis, I am the owner of Vowlume Productions. My studio is specialized in mastering Rock and Metal music, but I am always open to work on other genres as well

Vowlume Produtions is a professional mastering studio based in Athens, Greece. I approach every project individually, because every musician and every band's vision is different. I am trying to reach my client's musical vision, by providing substantial help while I am mastering music by a creative way and always staying true to creator's original vision. I treat each project like being my own. I always work close with you in order to provide the best possible result as you originally had dreamed of.

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!
