Was gonna say "Hvis Lyset Tar Oss" although I'm not sure it qualifies as "pro" recording.
Hollow man by entombed is certainly an acquired taste!
On the other end of the spectrum, RIOT! By paramore has horrible sounding guitars. The drums rule as do the vocals, but the guitars? Not so much.
Is that the one where he ran a distortion pedal straight into his interface?
Nah that was Filosofem, which sounds like nails on a chalkboard through a 1930s FM radio inside a tin can. If you think about it that way Hvis Lyset Tar Oss sounds like a Bendeth mix by comparison!
Both Burzum albums have the sound that matches the songs perfectly though. And yes, Filosofem was something like "old fuzz pedals into brother's hi-fi stereo system" but I don't know wheter it was miced up or directly into the board. All Pytten-made black metal albums have some magic quality in them that is quite hard to replicate.
indecizo you should see a doctor if you think Sybreed tone on the pulse of the pulse of awakening is bad, probably you are going deaf!lol
Burzum wins this thread.
There's a difference between "released by a label" and "professional recording". Therefore, Burzum is out of the running.
As far as metal records go, most of the '80s hair metal stuff sounds terrible to me. Thin, bright, chorused, washed out. It helps that I don't like the stuff to begin with, granted. Plenty of "real metal" records from that era sound like wank, too. Jake E. Lee-era Ozzy is pretty bad.
I always thought Megadeth's Rust In Peace had some pretty crap tone. Still do. That, presumably, had a real budget.
Pain's Rebirth was ear-fatigue city. And I like industrial music, noise rock, and all manner of abrasive things. Just sounded unpleasant.
I'm sure there's more.
And this is leaving out a whole world of crap guitar tones that have nothing (or at least very little) to do with metal at all.
Immortal:Battles in the North, The guitars sound like a choir of angry bees.
I really don't think RIOT! has bad sounding guitars, they fit the mix quite nicely, All We Know Is Falling on other hand has fucking horrible guitar sounds and the production overally is pretty shitty, especially guitars and drums.
I used to love this album when it came out, but over time the guitar tone honestly makes me want to gouge my ears.
I absolutely love the bass tone on Come Clarity, but everything else leaves much to be desired.
Coming from the bass(or absence of) on Soundtrack, Come Clarity was a welcome change. But, I don't think the band has had a decent guitar tone, drum mix, or whole mix since Clayman.
By far, this:
But it adds to the sentiment of the music tbh, so you kind of just excuse it.
If I remember correctly it was mic'ed up with a headset mic (with the intention of having the worst possible tone)
Not guitars, vocals.
Now I'm fearing to see any of my productions mentioned. :Spin:
yea, peter tatgren is a damn good engineer but the guitars on rebirth sound like he just d.i.ed the preamp and left it at that.
Ahah! Your post made me visit your website Your studio is pretty great man!!
Came here to say Soundtrack haha. I still love that album (and Come Clarity) but I also realize that the guitar tone is not particularly good for most In Flames releases...
