After which, actually, at my place [in St. Petersburg, Florida], we’re in a position to monitor all of the guitars, bass and vocals.
“These days of renting thousand-dollar-a-day studios, we do not really want that anymore. And our producer Zeuss, who did the final two QUEENSRŸCHE albums — he does all Rob Zombie‘s stuff; he is a really seasoned producer, [and] he does mixing and mastering, so he is a one-stop store — he is down right here from Massachusetts.

However what we did on this report was, aside from Eddie [Jackson, bass] — Eddie has a few songs which can be actually cool that he wrote after which confirmed us type of after they had been just about finished. After which Michael type of wrote some attention-grabbing chords — nonetheless staying inside the keys and the whole lot. However all of us obtained in a room with our right here [in Florida], and we actually began from scratch. Like, ‘Michael, what do you bought?’ [And he would] give you a riff. And Casey [Grillo] would sit on the drums, or I’d sit on the drums. We had been all truly in a room and simply tried it like the great previous days. So this report was completely like that — the entire thing just about, minus one or two songs. And even that modified slightly bit.”
In early 2021, Wilton instructed The Steel Voice in regards to the sound of the brand new QUEENSRŸCHE music: “Our producer, Zeuss, if that is any indication, he says it seems like QUEENSRŸCHE … I feel we’re simply going with our intestine proper now. You do not wanna take too many drastic possibilities nowadays. So I feel it is extra of a continuation of ‘The Verdict’, possibly, in some sense. We’re driving that wave. It has been good to us. [Laughs]”
