Judas Cradle – Mongrel (2017)

Mongrel was the only full length record that we did as the Judas Cradle. It kinda turned out to be our Chinese Democracy, even though it was a combination of reworked tracks off our earlier EP or splits alongside a whole bunch of newer thrashier kinda tracks (Agathocles the 2nd over here). Mongrel then went through a protracted period of mixing, and by the time it came out, we had all but broken up, which was a shame timing-wise, but I’m still immensely proud of this album.

Fun fact: I recorded my drum parts separately to the rest of the band. We’d done everything as a live recording beforehand so this was a bit different for me. The session time we had was between the switch over from days to nights on my shift pattern, so I was absolutely knackered before the session even began. If I could do it all again, I’d have picked a different day; maybe there’d be harder hitting blasts on this thing haha
