The majority of the recordings was done at Studio Hazienda by Milos "Dodo" Dolezal with the sound engineer Frantisek Musel.After several problems and complications - and numerous mixes - the production could finally be finished in spring 2006at Magic Minds Studio in Hannover.The album was produced and mixed by Jan Nemec (Magic Minds Music) and by Peter Kresta in co production, helpfully supported by Walter Wicha (the voice of „Railway") as an executive producer in the final phase.The final mastering was done in March and April 2006 at Sky Studio by Bobby Altvater who was already responsible as a producer and sound engineer for bands such as Bonfire, Frontline, Boys Voice, Railway, Affair, Big Apple etc.

Catastrophes Carrying out this Project was not easy.The first problems were caused by a drummer who was so “good" that all of his recordings had to be erased.My first singer suffered from an inguinal hernia. Several instruments and computers failed during the rehearsals and in the studio. Due to an allegedly bad aura, this singer preferred not to workwith me any more.The sound engineer survived his work with me only with tea, tranquilizers and chocolate..I re-recorded some guitar tracks, because I did not like the original ones any more. The consumption of tea raised dramatically.At the studio in Hannover, suddenly the hard disk with my recordings was "empty"...When I was listening to the recordings in my car, the back window crashed during the song "Open Fire". Short time later - I had an important date for the mixes of the recordings - my car dramatically signalized that it would strain soon.The cover photos caused some unexpected problems as well. By accident, the negatives of the first shooting were exposed.But now, I and many others, are more than happy that this CD is finally finished, but they don’t know that I am planning more …
