Chelmsford based Hard Rock outfit Mercury Rising recorded their second E.P. with their brand-new line up with us over the cold December period which is due last year.
Mercury Rising is a band which was formed by Guitarist Rob Raymond and currently features the epic vocals of Max Campbell, the thumping bass of Rik Malice and hardcore drumming from George Tinsley that separates them from the rest of the Hard Rock pack.
Their follow up to the Bad News E.P. has been much anticipated.
This month we’ve had the honour of working with Colt48 (a two piece from Kent in Southern England) in recording part of their E.P.

Twisted Illusion, who recorded their critically acclaimed Insight to a Mind of a Million Faces with us , were back in the studio in October recording Molly’s Smile – a Charity Single in support of NWOBHM festival Mearfest.
Twisted Illusion is the epic Rock project of singer/songwriter Matt Jones, now with Steve Revier on additional guitars and the thunderous rhythm section of Mark Wagstaff on bass and Matt McDade on drums
They also began work on their 3 part follow up album, Excite the Light which will begin in full later this year.
Midnight Prophecy also joined us to record their debut album The Prophecy in October. The band follow in the true Heavy Metal revival footsteps of bands such as Monument, White Wizard, Enforcer and Cauldron and are hoping to emulate those bands successes with their new record.
Touring with Twisted Illusion later this year, the band is fronted by Craig Cairns on vocals, features the dual guitar attack of Christopher Dixon and Danny Quayle, Peter Mansfield on bass forming a mighty partnership with Sam Caldwell on drums.
This release proves to be a raw, uncompromising Heavy Metal Classic.

'Kaine have braved the long drive and returned to us once more to lay the vocals to the new album 'A Crisis Of Faith'. Guitar re-amps were also performed at the same time, culminating in productive and exciting studio sessions here at Pointy Halo.
Only one more trip remains to put all the final bits and pieces together and the transformation can begin in creating this highly anticipated album. Check out https://kaine-metal.com/ to keep up with their versions of events.'
East Anglian Metallers 'Kaine' have chosen to come nearly 5 hours drive and 300 miles to record their highly anticipated followup album 'A Crisis Of Faith' with us here at Pointy Halo Productions.
The album is being broken into segments due to the sheer logistics. The thundering drums have been laid down this weekend with excellent drummer Chris Mackinnon and with plenty of Live streams recorded on their Facebook page.
We are tackling the monstrous guitars next with Black Star endorsees Saxon Davids and Guitarist/Frontman Rage Sadler. Expect plenty more Live streams and progress reports from them as the album progresses.....
Last week saw the return of Hard Rock band 'Faith In Glory' to the studio record a single from their up and coming (and follow up to the epic 'OPIA') album 'Break Free' (which is still being written, honed and tweaked for their adoring fanbase). It was a pleasure as always to work with the guys and we look forward to working with them on their next album soon.
Keep up with the guys on their website page (https://faithingloryofficial.com/)
or on Facebook (https://en-gb.facebook.com/Faith.In.Glory/)
Pointy Halo Productions had the pleasure of Rockers 'Sister Rose' coming to the studio to part record their second album, which is as yet untitled. Due to their busy schedule, the guys hope to finish and record the rest of it here shortly.
They are currently enjoying the success of the previous album 'The Devil's Hand' (which was recorded mixed and mastered here also) and have had some great gigs off the back of it.
You can find out about these busy boys on Facebook. (https://en-gb.facebook.com/sisterroseuk/)
Since the start of the year, the ambitious and restless writing genius that is Matt Jones was in the studio, writing, recording and co-producing the follow up to last years (Yes, that is barely 12 months since) 'Temple of Artifice'.
The mammoth double album, 'Insight To The Mind Of A Million Faces', was recently exclusively released to pledgers on a campaign and is set to be officially released in September.
Rumour has it that there is yet another 'Heavier' album in the works.... 😉
