Worth noting: this is the same Danish studio where METALLICA recorded their legendary “Ride the Lightening” and “Master of Puppets” albums. Flemming produced both of those as well.
Sweet Silence Studios in Copenhagen, Denmark is a recording studio originally built by Danish engineers Freddy Hansson, Stig Kreutzfeldt, and Flemming Rasmussen in February 1976.

Here is a cool slideshow gallery from the original hand-written notes from the ”Master of Puppets” session.
Recording started 03 September 1985.
Personally I think some of the riffage on ARTILLERY‘s “Terror Squad” LP from 86′/87′ was just as good as what was on “Ride the Lightning”. They also had a rather unique crunchy guitar “tone” for the time! Their overall sound was much more akin’ to Metal Church in my opinion though.
