Professional & brutal sounding metal tracks
My name is Mattias Ohlsson, I am a musician and a producer. I specialize in metal music, which I have a big passion for.
The main focus of my work is mixing and mastering. I am happy to do both for you. My mixes are punchy, modern sounding and clear.
I am also available for programming realistic and explosive drums, using the highest quality samples. I was a drummer in a metal band for four years so when it comes to drums, I know my stuff!
I am also experienced as a producer and I am happy to spice up your track with added layers of synths, orchestra, whatever it needs.
And lastly, I can also program realistic bass, giving your tracks a very consistent and aggresive sound.
Ultimately your vision is what is most important. That's why I will always offer revisions until you are 100% satisfied with the finished product!
If you'll let me, I will make your music become the best and heaviest version of itself.
Looking forward to working with you!

Absolutely amazing results. Great communication, seriously top level professional. I can't wait to work again with.
Exceeded our expectations!
Mattias is such a talented music producer! We completed an international project having 3 different people from all around the world. The sound quality, tones, the punchiness of the mix, professional mastering, he is just super professional and passionate at his job! You can check his youtube channel and the music he produced to see how amazing he is at his job! I highly recommend him. You won't regret your decision! Once again, thank you so much to Mattias at MO Metal Productions!
Mattias did an awesome job per usual. I will definitely be back with more tracks for him to work on.
Mattias was a pleasure to work with. He was super receptive to my feedback, knew exactly the sound I was going for, and made my track sound absolutely massive. A true professional. I'm super stoked about what he's done and I will definitely be returning for my future mixing and mastering needs.
Once again Mattias delivers! I'm very happy with the results and am already scheduling my next songs with him. He is very easy to work with. Great communication and great quality work. Highly recommended.
Working with Mattias again was a pleasure. He delivered exactly the sound I was looking for and the process went very smoothly. It sounds amazing and it has kind of an MO Metal productions 'vibe' to it, which I think is great and unique. I appreciate the great work, Mattias!
An excellent end result, fast work process and overall a wonderful experience!
Very fast and professional. Was able to spot and fix some issues I had with my Bass and Drum tracks. Gave me a custom quote for the work. Listened to my feedback and was able to adjust the mix per my revision requests. Very easy to work with in general and I highly recommend for anyone who is either just starting out or has some basic experience recording.
Mattias is phenomenal. He did an absolutely superb job mixing, mastering, and adding production to my song! He is extremely careful in the way he approaches his craft, and it's so obvious that he cares as much as the artist to get the best possible song he can get. I cannot say enough good things about Mattias. He was also extremely patient with me and all of my requests. So happy to have found him here :)
What a difference in my songs after Mattias got hold of them. He took them to a new level and I'm thrilled with the result. Not only does he do great work, but he was able to fit me into a tight schedule, was very responsive, and delivered amazing results! He definitely knows what he's doing. I'm very satisfied with the result and I highly recommend working with Mattias. I'll be back again.
It was a real pleasure to work with this guy. He just turn my poor sounded mix in a heavy song with aggressive and clear sound. I am impressed!
Mattias is a total pro. Extremely creative, talented, and great to work with. He added a lot to my project with his input and I look forward to work with him again!
MO was great to work with! Really responsive, really quick with his mixes, allowed me to give ALOT of detailed feedback and work the track until I was completely satisfied. Would work with him again.
Great mixing, mastering and orchestral additions to the music.
Quick and easy communication during the work!
Mattias has been incredible to work with. He’s provided excellent service throughout and been helpful with all my questions. I’ve been impressed with the quality of all his work and my song is sounding exactly how I hoped it would sound.
Mattias mixed and mastered my album. This man knows what he's doing! He brought my vision to life. I had a particular sound in my head and after some discussion, he was able to bring that to life. His work is top quality. I'm extremely happy with the final results. I can see myself working with Mattias again!
The collaboration with Mattias is one of a kind. With a keen ear for detail, he masterfully crafts my recordings, but he actively thinks and collaborates with me to make the result sound P.E.R.F.E.C.T. Specifically for the work we've been collaborating on, I am also providing artist credits as he actively contributed on several tracks in way that I couldn't, so that the end-result of my second album release can be considered a full joint-effort, instead of a solo-project.

Working with Mattias has been fantastic, Utmost quality and his ability to receive feedback and churn out excellent results has made it not just exciting but also inspiring as an artist and I look forward to working with him again soon!
Listens to your feedback, does revisions, great mastering job
Interview with MO Metal Productions
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am currently working on recording and producing my next solo album with my project 'Octavarium'.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That it is very diverse!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That's a hard question to answer. I think most people in music have a good conception of what to expect from me as a producer.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What their vision is with the song/record. Any reference tracks is always helpful.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Actually only my computer, since that contains all the gear you would ever need!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been into music all my life and have been producing music for around 3 years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: A big sound with at lot of punch and clarity.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work you! These days every band can get a great sound for a low cost and I am always intrigued by new music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Record well. How good a song is sounding is ultimately limited by the recording quality.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Handling a lot of different tracks while maintaing clarity is something I've picked up from working with progressive metal!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A lot of punchiness without sacrificing clarity.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually start by looking over all the stems, followed by broad strokes and gradually becoming more and more detailed.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: 'Octavarium' Origin is the latest project I worked on.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I'm new here on SoundBetter so not yet!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Q: How should I send the stems for my song? A: Time aligned from the start with no clipping on any of the tracks.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital is definitely better if you consider cost and accessibility. However there are certain qualities of analog gear that you don't get with typical digital plug-ins. I use a lot of plug-ins that emulate analog gear such as tape machines, mix consoles and different compressors. It really breathes a lot of life into the mix!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise that I can help your music shine and pack a big punch!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: First make sure you get good recordings. I can do a lot, but ultimately I am always limited by how good the recording is. Also, if you are recording guitar and bass, it's always nice to get the DI track alongside any amp tracks. That way i can re-amp the instruments if i need to, and also give you more options sound-wise.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Rock and metal. I am specialized in symphonic and progressive metal but I can work on a wide variety of music genres!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I mix and master in the box in Cubase with premium plug-ins from Slate Digital amongst others.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Adam Nolly Getgood is my favourite producer and I often strive to reach his sound.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing and mastering. I am also available for programming realistic drums with some of the best sounding samples out there.
