    AFAIK he also uses snare-gate expansion on room mics to give you that wash of midrange. There are also some 'tricks' he does with distorting ambient mics to add midrange character to the kit. Again, AFAIK, not confirmed.

    Also good to know. I did see that dug out walkthrough where he showed that microphone pointed at the window to the control room which is maybe what he does for what you pointed out.

    It seems like he might not have as many set rules as some other metal guys. To me the guy is kind of a genius/mad scientist. His mixes usually sound way different.

    Remember when Reroute to Remain came out? It sounded like nothing before, it was totally nuts. And then they went a completely different direction on Soundtrack to Your Escape. Oh, man I miss the glory days.

    Really?? I have this EZX and to me his sampled drums are very different from his usual mixes. Very vintage sounding in a bad way I think. Weird..

    Except Koloss, what have been the latest albums he worked on ? I kind of lost the track of his recent works.

    The mix he did for Behemoth's Apostasy was amazing. It was something "different" but still crushing and great in every aspect.

    I always love the sound he gets from the china cymbals. Really curious how he does this.

    Surprisingly little discussion about DEI and Chaosphere on here. Those are always easily on my reference tracks list

    Bergstrand mixed a 3 song EP I tracked guitars and bass for at the start of this year.

    Not really which really sucked. After I handed over the edited and reamped guitars and bass. Only thing I hear before the finale product was that Daniel loved my tones. He had his assistant hit me up about how I got the tones for the EP. Which was super cool. I would of loved to have gotten more insight to what he did during mixing. Also it was pretty sick because Jason Suecof tracked all the drums for it.

    That's super cool that he went out of the way to compliment your source material! I dig the way it turned out, the music is pretty unique for the style too. I would be proud to have been involved with something that turned out that well.

    It is def surreal having my name attached to something that also has Suecof and Bergstrand's attached to it as well.

    I like the song and the mix! The guitar tone is killer indeed, what gear did you use for the guitar Phil? The gain seems pretty low, I love the grit!

    We tracked two different guitars for each side

    a Ibanez RGA121 with an EMG 60 and a mexican strat with an EMG 60

    Guitars were 6505 through a recto cab with a 421/57 combo. And I believe I boosted it with my trusty ts808

    Bass was actually straight into my dual recto through my mesa cab with the same mic setup.

    All dual tracked as well.

    Great song and beautiful organic mix. It's kind of refreshing in these days of "clean as fuck" productions.
