"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. "
