Marius Strand @ Strand Studio - Marius Strand @ Strand Studio - Producer / Engineer / Mixing / Mastering in Oslo

Strand Studio was initially founded by musician, producer and engineer Marius Strand purely for enthusiastic reasons, but now among references are bands like Chrome Division (feat. members from Dimmu Borgir), The Wretched End (feat. members from Emperor, Dark Funeral), Susperia, Insidious Disease (feat. members of Dimmu Borgir and Old Man’s Child) and In Vain.

Marius Strand likes to play several musical instruments and dig deep into recording hardware and software. The soul purpose is to deliver the highest quality possible for a very fair price. No project is finished before the client is happy. All genres are equally welcome, even though rock and metal music have been most common. Services offered are production, tracking, mixing, mastering and video editing/production.

Latest testimonials


I’ve recorded at Strand Studio several times and it was an all together positive experience. Strand is an organized and skilled engineer and producer.

The Wretched End, Emperor

Baard Kolstad

It’s refreshing when entering a studio where high-end drums, gear and everything else is set up in order and ready to go. It’s makes for a smooth process. A technician with good patience, well trained ears and persistence at all times is conditional for me be to be able to give my absolute best performance and M. Strand qualifies in all of these categories.

I do all my recordings in Strand Studio. It is the best drumsound I have come across in Norway and the recording process is extremely efficient and professional every time. I love not having to worry about anything else than playing well.
