Drummer, sound engineer, and producer Hannes Grossmann on new album “To Where the Light Retreats,” creative process between solo work and guest slots, TAMA drums, and much more!

Anyone familiar with Epitaph era Necrophagist or Obscura or Alkaloid, to name a few, will undoubtedly be familiar with Hannes Grossmann as he was an integral driving force behind all of it. Beyond drumming, he’s also a sound engineer and producer with a long list of credits under his belt. As if all that wasn’t enough, we’re on the eve of his fourth solo album, To Where the Light Retreats, which promises to be as technical and heavy as anything he’s ever been a part of.  Head inside for an in depth discussion via The Nine Circles Audio Thing.

Our maestro of the mic, Buke, chats with Hannes about the new album and what to expect, the different mindsets of drumming for his solo work and for other bands as well as the various mindsets that prepare him for producing music, his early days in drumming and how his fascinations and heroes paved the way, and a very long standing relationship with TAMA drums. They also cover how different drummers leave their own unique fingerprints on the music they make, plenty of shop talk, and a huge back and forth on Hi-Fi and headphones. This is a great discussion with plenty of nuggets all along Hannes’ career, jump in and enjoy!
