    Sounds like Chuck Norris could learn a thing or two from Andy.

    Listened to "The Gathering" again on my way to work this morning... yeah, definitely. Far from polished but very unique character.

    I don't understand, just cause he didn't actually dial in the amp, is he not responsible considering he did the actual final mix with all the e.q. and other shite?

    DHDW for sure. It's heavy but so "smooth" at the same time, it's perfect, it's eargasm.

    I do like genesis tone as well, it fits the style, a more "dark" tone, although I really think DHDW is one of the best guitar tones I've heard

    DHIDW for me is in the top list! , Anthems of rebellion and Doomsady both sounds awesome too! and yes, Exodus tempo sound perfect for that album!
    I think Andy's guitar souds are always perfect

    Eh, I don't deny that it works, but as skeksis so rightly pointed out, I can't switch off my hyper-analytical ears, and after countless hours spent making countless clips of different mic positions, in that tone I definitely hear that cloudiness that comes when the mic is too far from the dustcap (and the associated lack of crispness); still crushes, but yeah, that's the one thing that holds it back IMO.

    Oh man, I just remembered when I listened to "The Fall of Ideals", I was struck at how it sounded like a 5150 with more of that amazing upper-mid chunk (not so much a crunch, but in a similar frequency), less of the fizz, and just so much more life, and I hear the same in the Holy Diver tone - Kyle, you may have an interested trader for your Avenger! :D

    Earthtone 9 - Arc'Tan'Gent

    It's probably my favourite Sneap mixed/produced album full-stop, and I'm betting most of you have never even heard it :p
