Music & Audio Podcast 23: Adam “Nolly” Getgood of Periphery
Periphery are notable not just for being the leaders of this generation of progressive rock/metal bands, but also for self-producing their recent “Juggernaut” double album. At this point in the band’s career they could easily have their pick of big-name producers, engineers and mixers, but instead they handed the production duties over to their bassist Adam “Nolly” Getgood. Given how awesome the album sounds, I was shocked and amazed to find out that Nolly has only been recording for 5 or 6 years. It says a lot about his dedication to the craft that he got so good so fast, so I knew that I needed to pick his brain!

Bonus track: my personal favorite Periphery video
We caught up with Nolly right after they got home from their tour with In Flames and All That Remains to talk about all things production: the challenges and benefits of the band self-producing, how to manage the personalities and preferences in the studio, why he does most of his mixing with headphones on a loud bus, the importance of bass guitar in metal, and how he hones his mixing chops while touring 9 months out of the year.
