Here's another clip from our recent session with Mike Mitchell in the studio. This was simply Mike warming up for the day. There's some musical ideas getting thrown around and fleshed out, quite a few tasty bits of shredding of course, and basically Mike just being the fun drummer to watch and listen to that he is.
