LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts/ Ocean Way Recording) Successful producer/engineer Dave Fortman (Evanescence, Slipknot, Watership Down) returned to Ocean Way for overdubs and the mix for "1000HP," the new album from top band Godsmack. Joining Fortman in the Neve 88R-equipped Studio D were Godsmack founder and frontman Sully Ema, Pro Tools programmer Jeremy Parker, and Ocean Way engineer Wesley Seidman.

Fortman previously worked in Studio D on the multiplatinum Evanescence album "The Open Door." "I love the studio," says Fortman. "I came back to get that unique sound for this new Godsmack record and we really nailed it and had a great time."

The band also has 20 top ten rock radio hits, including 15 songs in the top five, a record number of top ten singles by a rock artist.[

"The Neve 88R at Ocean Way has great color and that great Neve low end like an 80 series old school console, but with the brightness of a modern desk," adds Fortman. "This is an amazing studio, excellent sounding room, and a great desk with a unique, original sound. "

Godsmack has sold over 20 million records and have have proven to be one of the highest-grossing artists in the United States. Their new album "1000HP" will be released August 5 on Republic/Universal records.
