I began my career as a metal mixing and mastering engineer in 1996 with VILE band mate and engineer Juan Urteaga (Machine Head, Testament, Exodus). I built Imperial Mastering in 2001 and have specialized in mastering and mixing of metal bands almost exclusively ever since.
Since 2002. I have mastered many hundreds of metal bands from all over the world and I mix a few bands per year. Because I am a mastering engineer, when I mix, I create tight, detailed and high fidelity mixes. I work with the engineers who track or mix the projects I finish to help them get the best results. I like a modern sound, but I have have an old school ethic and classic training.
I am known for my work with extreme metal bands, and do my best to raise the standards in this genre. I most enjoy working on "well produced" extreme metal or classic and melodic metal of all types.
