Professional & modern sounding metal tracks at affordable rates.
My name is Mattias Ohlsson, I am a musician and a producer. I specialize in metal music, which I have a big passion for.
The main focus of my work is mixing and mastering. I am happy to do both for you. I use the highest quality plugins to bring your music to life. My mixes are punchy, modern sounding and clear.
I am also available for programming realistic and explosive drums, using the highest quality samples. I was a drummer in a metal band for four years so when it comes to drums, I know my stuff!
I am also experienced as a producer and I am happy to spice up your track with added layers of synths, orchestra, whatever it needs.
And lastly, I can also program realistic bass, giving your tracks a very consistent and aggresive sound.
Ultimately your vision is what is most important. That's why I will always offer revisions until you are 100% satisfied with the finished product!
If you'll let me, I will make your music become the best version of itself.
Looking forward to working with you!

Mattias was a pleasure to work with. He was super receptive to my feedback, knew exactly the sound I was going for, and made my track sound absolutely massive. A true professional. I'm super stoked about what he's done and I will definitely be returning for my future mixing and mastering needs.
Once again Mattias delivers! I'm very happy with the results and am already scheduling my next songs with him. He is very easy to work with. Great communication and great quality work. Highly recommended.
Working with Mattias again was a pleasure. He delivered exactly the sound I was looking for and the process went very smoothly. It sounds amazing and it has kind of an MO Metal productions 'vibe' to it, which I think is great and unique. I appreciate the great work, Mattias!
An excellent end result, fast work process and overall a wonderful experience!
Very fast and professional. Was able to spot and fix some issues I had with my Bass and Drum tracks. Gave me a custom quote for the work. Listened to my feedback and was able to adjust the mix per my revision requests. Very easy to work with in general and I highly recommend for anyone who is either just starting out or has some basic experience recording.
Mattias is phenomenal. He did an absolutely superb job mixing, mastering, and adding production to my song! He is extremely careful in the way he approaches his craft, and it's so obvious that he cares as much as the artist to get the best possible song he can get. I cannot say enough good things about Mattias. He was also extremely patient with me and all of my requests. So happy to have found him here :)
What a difference in my songs after Mattias got hold of them. He took them to a new level and I'm thrilled with the result. Not only does he do great work, but he was able to fit me into a tight schedule, was very responsive, and delivered amazing results! He definitely knows what he's doing. I'm very satisfied with the result and I highly recommend working with Mattias. I'll be back again.
It was a real pleasure to work with this guy. He just turn my poor sounded mix in a heavy song with aggressive and clear sound. I am impressed!
Mattias is a total pro. Extremely creative, talented, and great to work with. He added a lot to my project with his input and I look forward to work with him again!
MO was great to work with! Really responsive, really quick with his mixes, allowed me to give ALOT of detailed feedback and work the track until I was completely satisfied. Would work with him again.
Great mixing, mastering and orchestral additions to the music.
Quick and easy communication during the work!
Mattias has been incredible to work with. He’s provided excellent service throughout and been helpful with all my questions. I’ve been impressed with the quality of all his work and my song is sounding exactly how I hoped it would sound.
Mattias mixed and mastered my album. This man knows what he's doing! He brought my vision to life. I had a particular sound in my head and after some discussion, he was able to bring that to life. His work is top quality. I'm extremely happy with the final results. I can see myself working with Mattias again!
The collaboration with Mattias is one of a kind. With a keen ear for detail, he masterfully crafts my recordings, but he actively thinks and collaborates with me to make the result sound P.E.R.F.E.C.T. Specifically for the work we've been collaborating on, I am also providing artist credits as he actively contributed on several tracks in way that I couldn't, so that the end-result of my second album release can be considered a full joint-effort, instead of a solo-project.

Working with Mattias has been fantastic, Utmost quality and his ability to receive feedback and churn out excellent results has made it not just exciting but also inspiring as an artist and I look forward to working with him again soon!
Listens to your feedback, does revisions, great mastering job
This is my second time working with MO and it was stellar. Will continue to recommend to anyone wanting to get their metal track really taken to the next level. The work with Harsh vocals is also incredible. My voice sits right in with every mix, even with my amateur mic. Incredible work, great communication and is able to take your ideas to make the track you are looking for. Thanks again, MO!
My second time working together with Mathias, again he did make me totally surprised by making an amazing audio production work. Not only the audio production but also he performed the vocals for the song, great lyrics writing and singing performance from him! He totally nailed it!
We will be going for an EP together as the next step.
Book him, and just expect an amazing work and pure dedication!
Thanks again Mathias, looking forward for the next project man!
Mattias did a great job. His drum tracks, and pads are phenomenal, as well as his overall mixing/mastering capabilities. Highly recommended for Metal tracks.
Fantastic Work as always. Clear tone and a bright sounding mix!
This was my first experience with Soundbetter and MO Metal Productions and I couldn't be more please with the work that was done.
My track sounds above and beyond better than what I thought it could of been. I highly recommend MO Metal Productions to anyone.
They were extremely professional and helpful along the way.
The Quality of work is top shelf and the recommendations 100% improved the overall track.
Thanks for your work MO!
We have revised our entire EP now. Check our “mothaltar” with the Prologue EP. Mattias did an amazing job bringing to life these already done songs. We look forward to brand new material with him in the process!
I struggled through so many painful hours trying to get my song as close to perfection as possible without losing my mind. By the time it was mixed, after writing, composing, arranging, performing, editing and mixing the thing - the last thing I wanted to do was butcher it by trying to master it myself. MO Metal Productions got the job done in 24 hours at an affordable rate. It was like he read my mind. No revisions needed either! Great work. I’ll definitely be using his services again!
I love working with Mattias! He does an absolutely amazing job and working with him has always been a positive experience.
Had my second track mixed with MO now and couldn’t be happier, work is extremely professional and communication is great! Looking forward to working with him again in the future
This was by far our most challenging song. This song is really important to review because there were so many disagreements on parts. From Mattias’s standpoint as well his feedback was vital. As a musician you tend to get attached to your ideas. Don’t. Mattias had to strongly recommend a lot for of times what the song was lacking and in the end his choices were right. We are completely satisfied but had to learn what to let go of and keep in a song. Trust this man with progressive music!
My second track mixed, mastered, and post-produced by Mattias, he works great, timely, and with professionality. Your track will sound powerful.
Mattias came through once again. He worked great with all of the members of my project. After a couple of revisions, the song came back fantastic. We are all proud of this track and are excited to share it. Mattias has great insight and understands what kind of sound we are going for. Thanks for all of your hard work. We will be back very soon. Cheers!
Mattias did an absolutely fantastic job and our song came out better than we could have anticipated. Thank you Mattias!
Mattias is not only an amazing audio engineer but also a great musician. Throughout our journey he was always flexible and very professional. The song we have worked on together is on another level right now, it wouldn't have been possible without his valuable contribution, not only on mixing and mastering but as well as on production area he is amazingly well-knowledged.
Thanks a lot Mattias!
Looking forward to our next project together :)
Turned our mix into the best it could be. Had a lot of bad luck with producers before but this guy was different. Our mix sounded amazing and we recommend him to any metal act who wants a quick turnaround and great quality. And don't be afraid to let him throw some spice in!
Mattias worked very patiently with me, revising even small details to fit my liking. His mixes have a great sound, as he uses amazing-sounding samples to bring your vision to life. He also re-amped the guitars and tuned my vocals very well. Overall, the best choice for mixing and mastering your metal tune.
This is our second time working with MO Metal Productions. This is our second time reinventing a song with Mattias. I cannot tell you how proud my band is of having their track fully come alive. The best part about working with Mattias is that he sees the bigger picture of our EP in a couple of months and is still making sure each song can flow cohesively with the next. If you need to know what would make your track go the extra mile, you will want to work with MO Metal Productions.
Matthias is amazing. He’s helping us as a band rebrand our sound. We are a modern age prog metal band and Matthias truly knows his stuff. He understood band references that are current (SleepToken, The Contortionist, Loathe, etc).
He will hold you accountable with your sound. We became better home producers because of it. We know how to record confidently now. This man would be worth even an hour of his paid time to consulted the sound of your band. This is just song 1! We’re coming back!
Super efficient and professional. Mixed and mastered a song for me and did an incredible job! Will definitely be using him in the future for my other projects.
Nice Job! He's on top of it and willing to get a better understanding of your direction!
Was able to capture exactly what i was after, clear & concise communication from beginning to end. would highly recommend to anyone.
Another awesome job !! 5 stars !!
Perfectly captures the mood; but also is involved in the creative process of your tracks. Hands-on professional that only delivers top quality. Patient and committed!

Mattias has been with me from early concept to a finished product, and has contributed not only in mixing and mastering; but also in co-creation as some points. A great personality, with exceptional skills and a passion for the metal genre has turned this into a collaboration I look back on as one of my most pleasant and professional ones. Definitely recommend Mattias of MO Metal Productions. This guy knows his stuff.
Mattias has been the reason why people ask me "who did the mixing and mastering of your album" which is the only compliment I can give :-) The results speak for themselves. Awesome guy to work with!

I worked with Mattias for several months on my debut album. Believe me, my standards and expectations were high but MO Metal Productions delivered an amazing end result!
The album is only out now since 2 days but many people complimented already on the quality of the production which is absolutely stunning!
Working with Mattias is a pleasure and he takes some weight off your shoulders, thinks with you and delivers on time!

Interview with MO Metal Productions
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am currently working on recording and producing my next solo album with my project 'Octavarium'.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That it is very diverse!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That's a hard question to answer. I think most people in music have a good conception of what to expect from me as a producer.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What their vision is with the song/record. Any reference tracks is always helpful.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Actually only my computer, since that contains all the gear you would ever need!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been into music all my life and have been producing music for around 3 years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: A big sound with at lot of punch and clarity.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work you! These days every band can get a great sound for a low cost and I am always intrigued by new music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Record well. How good a song is sounding is ultimately limited by the recording quality.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Handling a lot of different tracks while maintaing clarity is something I've picked up from working with progressive metal!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A lot of punchiness without sacrificing clarity.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually start by looking over all the stems, followed by broad strokes and gradually becoming more and more detailed.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: 'Octavarium' Origin is the latest project I worked on.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I'm new here on SoundBetter so not yet!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Q: How should I send the stems for my song? A: Time aligned from the start with no clipping on any of the tracks.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital is definitely better if you consider cost and accessibility. However there are certain qualities of analog gear that you don't get with typical digital plug-ins. I use a lot of plug-ins that emulate analog gear such as tape machines, mix consoles and different compressors. It really breathes a lot of life into the mix!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise that I can help your music shine and pack a big punch!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: First make sure you get good recordings. I can do a lot, but ultimately I am always limited by how good the recording is. Also, if you are recording guitar and bass, it's always nice to get the DI track alongside any amp tracks. That way i can re-amp the instruments if i need to, and also give you more options sound-wise.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Rock and metal. I am specialized in symphonic and progressive metal but I can work on a wide variety of music genres!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I mix and master in the box in Cubase with premium plug-ins from Slate Digital amongst others.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
