Really? I can hear them both perfectly well on these speakers.
it's not like the whole solos are drowned but the first notes are totally buried beneath the rest. it's not that bad on good speakers but on mediocre ones it totally sucks...
funny, i thought the loudest sound possible was 194 dB.
Ha, I record my guitar on my laptop, with drum from fruity loops and some fake bass, and I can make it sound better than what Darkthrone does in the studio
At 500m from the explosion, an atom bomb produces 220 dB.
It seems like the_drip was there in 1945, august 6.
BWP-Damnation are overdone production-wise (Like they where making pop/rock albums), I´m sure that´s why Opeth DIDN`T choose Wilson again.
Now the prodution on Orchid and MAYH is ok but nothing more.
Morningrise production sucks, the drums are fucked up as is the guitar sound.
Now Stilll Life is clearly the best production, good but not overdone.
And to those who whine about some minor technical errors on SL: who cares?
1. SW isn't producing because he's on tour with Porcupine Tree.
2. It's not minor technical errors. Every song has got something going wrong in it production wise. I've definitly heard worse production, but some parts are just painful to listen to (on headphones). I care because it distracts me from the music -- something good production wouldn't do. Maybe it's because I haven't been listening to metal for very long and I'm not so used to bad production that "ok" production sounds great, I don't know. I just wish I could enjoy this damn awesome album on headphones.
Technical problems aside, the SL production is good in terms of the overall sound. The guitars, mix, compression, etc. It sounds very metallish in an organic way. In a way, it is the best. It's not too dry (MR), muddy (MAYH), compressed (BWP), or artificial (D1). Damnation's production is better but not comparable, and Orchid's is but too cult for today's youth.
The next time you listen, pay attention to the lead on Godhead's Lament -- particularly the one about 2-3 minutes in that mimics the melody of the first clean vocals. Same goes for the first two minutes of Moonlapse Vertigo. The leads are all fuzzed up .
Those are two that annoy me in particular, but I've got more.
