Colin E. Davis

Producer, Engineer

I’m a producer, mixer and mastering engineer of metal music. I also teach and consult. I operate the Imperial Mastering studio in Pacheco, California (Bay Area).

I first began recording my own band Entropy on a 4 track tape machine in 1994. Then in 1996, I co-founded VILE and subsequently produced and recorded 5 more releases for the band.

Over the years I have produced, mixed or mastered literally hundreds of metal music releases. Partial listings can be found here and here.

Because I’ve worn every hat in the music production field, I have a high altitude perspective. I understand the roles of musician, recording engineer, mixer and mastering engineer. I strive to produce meticulous recordings, but equally, those that embody the personality of the band and the unique soul of their art.
