Lucas Di Mascio
Lucas got into music at a young age, very inspired by music from musical theater and films. He began playing piano at age seven, but never stuck with it. As a teenager he discovered the world of heavy metal and hard rock, picked up a guitar and has been in bands ever since. It was also during his teenage years that he discovered his love of recording. He went to Metalworks right after high school and gained studio experience over the years. Having almost a decade of recording experience under his belt and with a background in private tutoring he strives to make every studio experience an educational one for his clients. When building the studio he decided to combine his love of horror with music, creating a treat for the senses which will undoubtedly inspire all who work out of Old Haunt.
He is currently the frontman of dark melodic metal band Malacoda (www.malcodametal.com) which signed a record deal with Rockshots Records in late 2017. An experienced session guitarist, bassist and vocalist he uses his musical knowledge with various instruments and recording equipment as his primary tool as a producer.
Lucas currently offers his services as a music producer, recording engineer, photographer and session musician.
Michael Farina has been playing drums in a wide variety of genres- from pop, psychedelic, folk to metal, he's the definition of a musical chameleon. Endorsed by YC Drums and Regal Tip, he's got an identifiable playing style and has a very professional demeanor- while still making it fun. Some people may know him as the drummer from Farewell to Freeway and Toronto's pop sensation Wolf Saga. Michael also has a very active social media presence with new drum videos posted every month, filmed right here at the studio.
Michael's rates start at $100 a song (+ the daily/hourly studio rate/package price), depending on length and complexity, but is open to negotiations depending on how many songs you are planning to do.
