that's a click bleed to me, or a drum stick keeping the timing, but I think it's click.
it stops really soon.

no, it's click, but so what, performance was good and we liked the feel of vocal, don't think it affected record sales but I may be wrong....

see this is where I expected the big name producer to start rolling out the cliches and refer to mistakes like that as adding "character" to a track....

I love stuff like that. For the life of me I can't remember the album, but I can remember hearing a phone ringing very faintly on a track. It used to drive me mental until I got the story: apparently the vocal was being recorded in the control room, the phone rang during the take so they decided to leave it in.

You're not wrong, it's a fucking fantastic album, It's fantastically produced and fantastically performed. It's in my top 3 albums of all time (Rust In Peace, Tempo of The Damned and TGE). The whole thing sounds awesome. I especially love the sound of the toms at the beginning of Sentient 6, the eq and the reverb really make the toms sound awesome. It was definitely not meant to be a negative criticism, just an observation. Considering (IMHO) that the best produced metal album of all time is Tempo and my demo's sound pretty shitty I am in no position to criticise!

Speaking of shit bleeding through, listen to the CLASH's "Rock the Casbah". During a breakdown in the song there is a wristwatch alarm playing "DIXIE" in the mix. I know it's a wristwatch alarm, because I had the same one in 1982, and noticed it the first time I heard the song.

I think I remember reading that as well.

Of course, I also vaguely remember reading it's 2 tracks of Jeff on one side, Recto panned @ 100, Krank panned at 80, and two tracks of Steve on the opposite, same heads, same panning.

So I don't know, really.

I did a bit of searching, and found this. Andy says there's four rhythm tracks.

This Godless Endeavor Guitar Tone??

I thought it was exactly this "2 tracks of Jeff on one side, Recto panned @ 100, Krank panned at 80, and two tracks of Steve on the opposite, same heads, same panning." as Exocaster said, EXCEPT, I thought Jeff did all four tracks on his songs, and Steve did all four on his songs. I'm not sure why I thought that though, at least partially because it sounds like the same guitar player on both sides to me, and sounds different on Steve's songs. But maybe I'm looking for them to sound like that.

Regardless I'm almost posative about these things,

4 Tracks
Mesa + Krank
SM57

I'm 99% sure that the three rhythm tracks mix was on Enemies of Reality, and somehow it got confused with TGE. But for the life of me I couldn't tell you if which heads they were was ever explained. Sounds like a recto though.

I'll go so far as to say it's three tracks of Triple Recto through a Mesa 4x12. That's what I remember, at least...

I like how they sound... but they need to be changed (given moderate usage) every other month...
