The Metal Factory is a professional studio and a residential place where the band can live while they are tracking. The studio is ran by Alex Cappa, producer and engineer with more than 30 albums recorded. Alex is able to work at the studio as he is to move for tracking all around the globe and mix the tracks back in the TMF. Our facility is able to record, edit, reamp, mix and master your material giving the bands a full production service. We also have luthier and video recording services.

I also have plenty of experience in the live engineering world: Wacken Open Air, Rock al Parque & Sonishphere among the biggest festivals I´ve worked at.
