Strand Studio

About Strand Studio

Producer / Engineer / Mixing / Mastering

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 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 and mastering.
