    you know that was an insult to him and NOT your old lady right Jay?

    basically saying there's probably no difference between the size of his *cock* and his finger ;)

    As for my wife ... we've done some porn of our own ;)

    @Guitarguru777: I actually think the drums sound much better on the Rattlehead and Haunting the Chapel vids you posted than did the later ones from those respective bands.

    I can and do see where the OP is coming from in terms of "over-production". While newer recordings are certainly more technically advanced from an engineering perspective, I do think, as in the case of the Gojira vid, that this new found digital clarity does come at the expense of of a certain amount of individuality. Take the Misfits Earth AD album, by conventional standards this sounds horrible, but in terms of sheer heaviness, it is light years ahead of the majority of modern metal. Of course this is just my personal opinion, others, of course, will disagree with it, but there does seem to be a certain warmth to older 80s metal and hardcore records that is lacking in today's stuff. I've really notice this the most on the drum tracks. Just seems the newer stuff sounds so much more fake sounding.

    Yeah, I'm curious as well. I see a whole lot of talking the talk in that sentence, but not a whole lot of walking the walk if you will. :p

    No offense intended, but I'm pretty curious too!

    Man I'm hung over!!! What a great night \m/\m/ whoo hoo!!!

    Okay girls listen up, at some point today we're gonna put into practice the generous advice you gave us and see if it works. So thank's again!!! Really guys, thank you :)))

    We're real excited about it. We've hired a couple JCM 800's an 8 track and some mics and shit. I dont have a brain cell in my head but I'm determined to learn this medium or whatever it is. You guys have obviously been doing this for years and squabbling aside, I respect that. I dont respect the boy-band approach to metal but I respect that you're dedicated to music in some way.

    Even if some of you make it sound like Fall Out Boy.

    If we so much as dared replaced our drummers snare or kick drum in a mix he'd kill us! He's an awesome drummer, he doesn't need fake snare hits or fake whatever else. We're a tight band, like a fist, we never fuck up or make mistakes because we do things the old fashioned way. We're musicians, not performers.

    All those gimmicks and gay things you're doing make bands lazy and sloppy. We've won several battle of the bands contests, I've personally won several guitar contests (and did so to get money and gear for my band) so I could care less what you all assume about us! I'm very happy and proud of what we've achieved and some miserable idiot online who I'll never ever meet or know personally is going to change that.

    I'm never going to physically meet you people, you're strangers to me and you're expecting me to prove stuff to you like we're in highschool? lol dont make me laugh! You'll never be that relevant to me. Get over yourself! You're not my dad.

    Anyway, I'll upload the results of our first attempt at recording things ourselves and share them here, yeah you'll tear them apart and attack them and blah blah blah because I made you piss pants yourselves or gave you an asthma attack or whatever but I could care less! There's bound to be a likeminded soul who'll read this thread and feel inspired by what we're trying to do.

    Until then fuckers! \m/\m/

    I think it's funny that these drips feel so significant and relevant they actually expect me to physically sit there and read through their wheezing insults like they're god or something

    Man, those guys aren't homosexual gay, they're just gay-gay, like Twilight. I bet they sparkle too! Gojira lol I swear... have you listened to that bands lyrics? They're weak. It's not the 90's guys being a victim isn't fashionable anymore, man up, be metal and get over it. Jerry Springer is a dead scene.

    Well girls after a few quick tests your advice seems to be sound, we've spoken among ourselves and feel it'd be appropriate to hire one of you or something.

    This is a legit offer no BS so PM me for more information.

    Like we'll pay for a skilled engineer to teach us the ways of real metal production, not boy-band metal like Gojira or Slipknot. Girls dance to Slipknot and the second a girl dances to your metal band you're gay

    That's a scientific fact.

    I can't really understand how someone could say that the 80's where straight and modern metal is gay ... its just so wrong :)

    I don't understand your problem, if you wanna sound like Darkthrone just put the fucking mic in the middle of the room and let go all of youre trve hate about dancing girls.
    Its ok.

    Is it just me or is this the most annoying, obnoxious, arrogant and detestable living being I have ever known of? Jesus fucking Christ we got it the first time that metal bands are boy bands GET THE FUCK OVER IT it's been like 10 pages of this guy saying the same god damn retarded thing over and over again, deliberately insulting everyone in the world who listens to anything except killing is my business and I can't believe many people actually came to help instead of dissmissing him as an immediate troll (which I did when I read the OP) and all this asshole did was keep on blabbering about the same stupid bullshit over and over again MY GOD SHUT THE FUCK UP I DON'T CARE IF YOUR DICK IS BIGGER MR GROUPY FUCKER, and in the year 2010 (in which you deny to be in) it's not an insult to call people gay, because many people are actually gay and it's not a bad thing

    I'd just like to agree with mr.Robert W, holy fuck To Mega Therion has some killer drums, and what a mix, shame about that godawful guitar tone, must have been some solid state monstrosity though.

    How do mix like this? Greatest 80s throwback sound I've heard in a while, I'm guessing lotsa room, JCM800, the howling vocal is almost better than Warrior himself. That Yobbo accent makes it just the more filthy and menacing!



    Now that's 80s blackthrash done right. And yeah, \m/ and bro are pretty gay in old school circles. First prerequisite to achieving an old school sound and feel is to stop using them.
