    Yeah, and it's not joke, every fucking song was like that when I checked.

    GH version already has so much more sense. I guess those wanting a re-master will have to rip that one for now.

    Why don't bands start making peoples heads roll when they send their album off to get mastered and it comes back ruined? If I spent time and effort on an album just to have it clip, I would be unimaginably pissed off.:erk:

    Definitely...on the bright side, maybe an album with this type of notoriety will actually cause some things to change...maybe

    That image is just too ridiculous. Louder does not always = better.

    I like it, too; it's probably my favorite from the album. Better than pt. II, but the original was amazing.

    Yeah, but apparently DM for example, was already pretty much like that before the mastering.

    I don't know... Maybe those guys are so dumb that they thought it was a good idea? I mean... They did come up with mixing Justice so that there is no bass... Not to mention St. You know what...

    I agree. Sounds completely like triggered drums, and even with the machine gun effect.

    However, I´m not sure if that horrible joke of compression level on the new album might cause similar hearing experience or not. Either way, I think the snare drum and almost everything else with the sound production sounds mechanical and boring, and that level of compression should be illegal to put on a CD, without notifying the buyers, IMO.
    I bet the majority of both sound engineers and lawyers and regular buyers would agree that it would be equal to reduced sound quality.

    The snare drum sound (and the Some kind of monster documentary) was the biggest value of the St. Anger project, I think.

    I don´t like either of the two newest albums much anyway, although there are some moments here and there that I like, and I dislike the compression level of Paradise Lost as well.

    Personally, I regard SX as metal first and foremost, but with elements of other styles like classic, ethnic etc. I think some parts of songs are really not what most metal fans would regard as metal.
    So the whole issue about how SX fans regard true metal in comparance to Metallica´s new album loses most of it point, if not many SX fans on this forum already had referred this album as true and great metal. (which I appologize if I´ve missed.)
    It could fit perfect on a Metallca fan forum though, I don´t know...

    Metallica always sucked. I give them props for being the catalyst and ushering in the genre of thrash, but I feel that's a genre that could have been skipped entirely. I saw them at the start of their career in a little club on Staten Island. I told Kirk Hammett to turn up his guitar because I couldn't hear him...man, do I wish he would just keep it down...all knobs to the left!

    Metal Church isn't really thrash though.....

    Thrash needs to live on. Old school shit like Atrophy, Intruder, Laaz Rockit, Realm... those bands need to exist.

    edit: i'm splitting hairs on the Metal Church thing. They play down the street from me all the time and they are always just kind of straight up heavy metal. But they have their moments.
