Welcome to Shellshock Studio
Shellshock Studio is a recording and mixing studio located at the Belgian coast in Knokke-Heist. Specialized in (alternative) rock, punk, hardcore & metal. My goal is to create a relaxed environment where musicians can use unique tools to capture their own sound and give their best performance possible. Since the beginning 5 years ago many bands have found their way here. You can find a selection of them on the Discography section.
The studio is equipped with tons of hi-end gear. At the heart of the control room there is a SSL AWS 948 delta console, combined with top notch microphones, outboard and converters to make you sound massive.

How can we help you?
Preproduction is the start of any project, wether it’s in a bed room, a rehearsal space or at a studio it’s a very important step. I always try to listen to some demo’s or come to a rehearsal session before the recording starts. In my opinion preparation is key and it can make life much easier during the recording sessions. This way we can take you and your bands performance to the next level and make it stand out form the rest.
Every project is mixed with the finest tools to make your recordings come to life. Mix sessions can be attended if wanted but I prefer working on my own and sending you the mixes at the end of the day. This way you can listen to the tracks on a sound system that is familiar to your ears and give me feedback. Recording your tracks by yourself DIY style? No problem, it’s possible to have them mixed at Shellshock Studio.
Mastering is the final step of the production process. This can be done in house but most of the time i prefer working with an external mastering engineer for projects i have mixed myself. It’s always good to have a pair of fresh ears laying down the finishing touches on the tracks. My mixes have been mastered by Uwe Teichert, Frederik Dejongh, Alan Douches, Jason Livermore, Brad Boatright, Gert Van Hoof, Kris Belaen, …
