Adrian Griffin on SoundBetter

I help heavy bands and artists sound as crushing on record as they do live

You have a tonne of options when it comes to recording and mixing heavy music, and not all of them are equal.

The problem is finding someone who ‘gets’ heavy music and is coming from the same place, especially as there are so many different styles of heavy music.

If your music is heavy and natural, from sludge metal to thrash, the drums destroy, the riffs are relentless, the bass is grinding, the vocals rip over the top, and there’s a healthy amount of dynamics to keep things interesting, I’m 100% onboard.

My number one goal is to help you bring your ideas and hard work together so that heavy music fans will be blown away by your recorded music in the same way they are when you play live and feel the same energy.


"... thank you so much for doing such an amazing f**king job & for generally being all round top dude. I’m so happy with the entire process & outcome."
