    I noticed that when the left guitar plays solo for a few measures there is reverb for it in the right. Does anyone know if there is reverb on the distorted guitars the whole time? I think Andy said he doesn't normally do that. But maybe for such a tame band. :p

    i think it only during the solo..its pretty common to add reverb to just the solo alone

    I don't think of deliverance as a "dry" record...so I'd say yes, a little reverb on guitars going on all of the time, but it can be just my ears. :D

    I don't mean a lead guitar it's a rhythm part. I'll find the track so everyone can listen tomorrow. Perhaps you mean that it's common to add reverb to a rhythm part under a solo?

    Hey Andy if you read this, what kind of amps where used for the lead tones on Deliverance? They sound very fluid and just make me crap myself overall.

    IIRC, Andy said that Deliverance was all Laney.

    I think Lamenations was reamped with a JCM 800, not sure if that includes lead tones...
    although i might be remembering that completely wrong

    Andy has something like 4 JCM800's, one modded, IIRC.

    A big part of that is Mikael Akerfeldt's playing. I feel the need to comment on this as I was just listening to Ghost Reveries. He's a bad motherfucker indeed.

    Speaking of GR, I think the drums on that record suffer greatly for lack of Mr. Sneap. The guitar and bass tones are great, but the drums are so thin and buried in the mix. Does anyone know if the drums on Deliverance are triggered at all? I've heard it's all acoustic save for the kicks during the heavy sections, but I don't know for sure.

    I'd hate to be the poor bastard trying to trigger Martin Lopez's snare, that's for sure. Ghost notes up the ass.

    Opeth also list a Triple Rectifier on the recording of Deliverance. Are we sure that it's a Laney on the rhythm guitars?

    @Sinister Mephisto : Opeth tend to use a litle reverb on all their rhythm guitars

    @DSS3 : As some others have mentioned, it was Gary Holt's Modded Marshall, not Andy's

    @Exocaster : Andy has just told me that the kick was 100% triggered and snare was 50%

    @Moonlapse : Andy just told me the rhythm guitars were Laney, but he's not sure what the Recto was used for.
