Metalworks is a Greater Toronto Area Recording Studio and Mastering facility that has maintained an unsurpassed level of excellence spanning over four decades.
Regarded as one of North America’s premier recording studios for many years, Metalworks has played host to a veritable who’s who of international recording stars.
Established in 1978, Metalworks Recording Studios was originally the creative workspace for the legendary Canadian supergroup Triumph. From these humble beginnings, Metalworks expanded over a 40+ year time span into a six-studio powerhouse that today ranks as Canada’s consummate world-class studio facility.
Metalworks has been recognized as Canada’s Studio of the Year an unprecedented 17 times at the prestigious CMW Canadian Music Industry Awards. Metalworks has become the undisputed leader in the recording studio business in Canada. It is little wonder that Gold & Platinum record awards line the corridors at Metalworks.
Artists such as Drake, Lil Wayne, Katy Perry, Jonas Brothers, Sade, Prince, Tina Turner, David Bowie, The Cranberries, Ashlee Simpson, D12, Guns N Roses, Silverchair, Bruce Springsteen, NSYNC and Christina Aguilera all chose to make themselves part of the Metalworks legend. Film stars Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renee Zellweger, Steven Seagal, Richard Gere, and Denise Richards to name a few have graced the halls at Metalworks.
It is not only the artists that have contributed to Metalworks’ success. World-renowned international producers such as Bob Clearmountain, Noel Cadastre, Nineteen85, David Bottrill, Eddie Kramer, Bob Ezrin, Noah Shebib, Gavin Brown, Bob Rock, Peter Collins, George Massenburg, Demo Castellon, Mike Clink and Rodney Jerkins have also shared their vast knowledge and expertise. Many of the brilliant artists and producers we have been fortunate enough to work with have created some of the world’s most memorable music.
