The DD Team 


MARK CROSS, also known as the “Powerhouse”, a world class drummer, who has worked with some of the greatest Bands and Artists in Rock History. Bands like The Scorpions, Firewind, Helloween, Kingdom Come, Metalium, Joe Lynn Turner, Ian Gillan, Tank, Tainted Nation  and the Vivaldi Metal Project to name a few and his most recent bands Tower of Babel and God´s Army, have given him a great reputation in the industry and is the head behind the Drum Dungeon.

Great sounding drums were always his goal and being a busy Musician, he decided to create his own facilities to record his Music and recapture the old ways of recording and deliver powerful sources.

It was the time, when Mark moved from London to Hamburg in 2014 and was looking for the right place to set up his gear. He worked the first couple of years Managing the Rockin´Restaurant Zwick in Altona and also the Zwick recording Studio above the Club. Unfortunately the Business and premises were shut down in 2016 and Mark had to look once more for a new shelter, which took him nearly 14 months.
Today a new location has been found and we are ready to rock!
Mark shares his “knowhow” in Drum recording, you can rent the place, bring your own gear, but he also offers his drum services to record as a drummer or produce your Music out of “The Drum Dungeon” for every Musician, Band, Newcomer or established Artist.

“The internet has made instant communication possible, as well as rapid file sharing to quickly complete Productions. We can exchange files via our ftp servers, “WeTransfer” or “Yousendit” and deliver edited and great sounding drums for you.
You don’t have to be a famous Musician to work with famous Musicians, I am very keen to explore and share every opportunity with you.”

Mark’s longtime experience as a recording and touring Artist, as well as a recording seminar Tutor for the SAE allows him to apply top playing, recording and mixing skills and bring your Production to a world class level.
Mark has also worked in the past with producers like Charlie Bauerfeind (Helloween), Chris Tsangarides (Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy and Gary Moore), Kip Winger and Tommy Hansen (Helloween, Pretty Maids, Outloud)
