    I share this with a tear in my eye...

    As you may be well aware Jim's band, The No Leaf Covers, were a dedicated band reknowned for duplicating original songs perfectly.
    Yet it was their mistake of attempting to cover 'Frantic' that proved to be fatal... For that authentic St Anger sound they hired an Oil tanker to use as a snare drum, which accidentally reversed over Jim mid-song during their last gig at the Bog and Lettuce in Aylesbury.

    Ironically it was his lifestyle that determined his deathstyle.

    Stop Stop STOP!!!!!!

    I can't take it ... I still hear the awful sound of that tanker flipping over :cry:

    the "peaaaannghh!" sound still rings in my ears

    somehow, it rolled over out of time with the kick drums which just made it sound even more like the song ...

    but Jim never lost his groove, even when it took him, he stayed 4/4 to the end

    I remember in an almost slow motion nightmare how just the bass and his one hand were showing from under the tanker ... he was gone already, but his fingers kept pulling at that low E

    To JIM!!!!! :kickass:

    Yeah.. one would figure that, with all the criticism after St Anger, they would have paid a little extra attention to the mix... :zombie: They should trash it all and let Sneap mix it!

    Even my girlfriend, who doesn´t know anything about production and good recordings, says "It sounds bad, it has bad production" and she loves metallica, she is out of the Metallica controversy.

    Anyone also notice the snare sounds like lars is trying to play it with his head instead of a drumstick? It sounds like he's not hitting it hard at all.

    ++same...i played my apoc... to my wife and her first reaction was "the drums sound awful...why does he keep playing the same beat all through the song?"

    ...and i was thinking...why does the snare sound like st.anger....?

    It sounds like a demo track. Even just a hint of verb'd probably do something for it.

    "Tony, is the CD quality much better than the streams they have been putting out? I’m liking the songs so far, but have been disappointed with the sound quality."

    Tony Hicks:

    "The quality of the record sounded amazing - nothing was buried, the drums were huge … well, pretty much everything was huge. Then again, I heard it in the control room on state of the art equipment with an engineer playing it back for me. But it sounded great."

    I wouldn't be surprised if the CD files sound just as bad as all the garbage production that they've released so far...
