Since you produced Macabre's "Dahmer" and "Murder Metal" albums, I had a few questions about those two albums. First off, did you trigger/sample the bass drum on both albums? The "Murder Metal" bass drum sounds a bit more sampled than the "Dahmer" bass drum, so I'm wondering if there's a difference between the two, and if either/both of them are triggers/samples or mic'd. Secondly, I was wondering what your thoughts on the "loudness war" is, because I noticed quite a bit of compression on those two albums. Was that something the band requested? Was it something that just seemed to fit the music? Or what? How were the albums recorded? Since there's two separate guitar tracks per song, I'm going to assume that the band members recorded their parts separately, is this the case? And I'm also going to assume that they didn't play to a click because they have always been very inconsistent with tempos, which I like because brutal music and machine-like accuracy don't mix well. Were the guitars and bass direct-in or mic'd up through amps? These are just some questions I've always wondered about those two albums. I'd also like to add that those albums (Dahmer and Murder Metal) are both really well produced and the drum production is especially good. Me and the drummer of my band are amateur producers ourselves, and while we don't even have an album out yet, we're trying to learn all of the tricks to get our album to sound perfect. It seems with every recording, there's something to complain about, whether it be clicky bass drums or bass being too low, and up near the top of the list of good production is Dahmer, with all of the instruments coming in clearly, and really good tone on all of the instruments. Sorry if I rambled on for too long, I have a lot of questions because I really love those two albums.
