    This album's mix is one of the best I've heard. It's dual tracked right? Only thing I don't like is the excessive guitar cut out not leaving enough tail, specially on the breakdowns

    Yup dual tracked gats, and i dig the chopped up guitars, makes them sound mechanical and tight as hell.

    The chop is so key to the riffs I think; really makes em leap out.

    Just bought this other CD the other day (for the mix). I don't even really like the band a whole lot (sorry Yannick!). It's definitely much less generic than I had been expecting and the musicianship is obviously very good, but the "bree" parts make me want to fast forward, haha. KILLER mix though. I suspected that the guitars were single tracked. I can only imagine how much more tedious it is for Andy to sample the snare for a band like this without it sounding totally fake. I mean it's got a bit of fakeness to it, but appropriate for the band I'd say.

    the mix is absolutely brutal, kinda rivals organic hallucinosis as far as i am concerned.
    musically it's between decent and mediocre for me....i really enjoy the opening track...sounds like well done death metal...also loving the breee breee slam-like parts. they're loosing me with the breakdowns, though....

    The guitar tone absolutely slays... really awesome.

    But any more info about the bass here? I really like the bass tone too. Which Peavey head? and which cab?

    This album has pretty much my ideal guitar and bass tones for metal haha
