    Who is producing Ghost Reveries? Jens Borgen is the engineer/mixer. Who is he? What has he produced, mixed or engineered? This has probably been discussed already but I have no search function.

    Thanks…

    They should go back to recording with Swanö. Jens Borgen is a relative unknown.

    Great. No wonder "Nightmares Made Flesh" sounded like shit compared to the previous two Bloodbath albums. My point has been made.

    Wasn't as good + Level of expectation due to previous two Bloodbath releases = Sounds like shit. My opinion.

    NMF > RTC

    Oh, and the production is much better also.

    After listening to each one about a million times, I can safely say:

    RTC < NMF

    I doubt the Opeth guys would settle for less than brilliant production. So at worst, the album will be delayed. Opeth trusts him, so thats reason enough for me to trust him. GR will RULE!!

    As long as the production is as good the last few albums, I'll be a happy man.

    Mike's vocals on Deliverance sounded like he was losing his voice, or something. Like the growls sounded very strained and such. Hopefully the new record will show Mike returning to Still Life glory growls and clean vocals! :) And still life production would rock. In fact, why don't they just hire the guys who did still life?

    swanö is indeed a master of production, but i'm sure jens can do a good job.

    I agree about Mike's voice on Deliverance, it was good but not as great, although he was excellent on Damnation.

    WTF are you talking about with Still Life? The production was HORRRRIBLE! I can't even listen to it on sensitive equipment because of this. Don't even mention good production and Still Life in the same sentence. Why do people think SL had good production?

    The only bad thing on Still Life I can remember is the sound dropout on one channel during one of the songs, but that's most likely because of the master being damaged and not the production.

    completely agree. If the songs suck (which they wont ;)) the album sucks. Period.
