Opal Sound Studio began as a vision to have a location in New Hampshire where metal, hard rock & punk bands could go and get the appropriate sound they've been yearning for, everytime.
We're here to dedicate all the time needed to craft the massive & organic, the sharp & loud, or the traditional metal and rock sound that is suitable for your group. It's a professional and relaxing environment to come to lay down tracks, or completely compose your single, demo, EP or full length.

I have recorded my solo band GEMINI for a full length album titled “Fading Lights Current” from June-January. The EP will be released on Eisenwald records in germany. The full length will be shopped around to respectable labels. 8 tracks of deep, depressing, and tightly executed massive black metal.
ANCESTRAL SHADOWS recorded the full length record “preserving all darkness in this world” and has been released as a digipack on Wolfbaneprod
Other bands that have tracked here are the progressive rock milestones THE DIAPASYN, a very long mini EP containing 40 minutes of perfect rock like no other band from Maine has to offer.
Bostons SPITTING BLACK desecrated opal sound in late 2012 and tracked an agressive and violent EP fueled by black and speed metal, unnerving aggression, and limitless talent.
Returning quartet TENSOR tracked a 15 minute pop punk speed EP and have made clear they are even better than they were on their classic second demo (also tracked at opal sound)
