What’s wrong with HOB’s production?
Lol, I think HoB has probably the best sound since HCDR.
I dont want to get get too much offtopic in this thread, but if I had to describe it in a few words: HoB Sound is boring and generic.
The keyboard outside of the solo parts is way to silent/far in the back in the mix/master (however you call it correctly). It sounds like Janne was standing in a different room than the rest of the band when they played it (I obviously know that every instrument is recorded on its own, but I think you know what I mean).
The guitars and vocals sound lacks the ... how should I call this? ... wildness, roughness ? The guitars sound way too streamlined as if they were computer generated instead of actually recorded by a real human. It simply lacks a punch. And the vocals, I mean simply listen to Hexed and than to HoB. Its a difference like night and day. Imagine this album with Hexed sound. It would be sooo much better.
Even Alexi said in his ranking that they should have taken more time to work on this album. Ofcourse I dont know, if he only speaks about the writing or also the sound/mix/master. But I strongly believe he also refers to the sound, since the writing of most songs on this album isnt bad imho.

ROUND 4: Vote for the best songs from Hexed. Only one song.
This is impossible. I'll say Soon Departed for now, but it might change. I thought three weeks would be plenty of time to choose a favorite, but I was totally wrong
The whole album is my favorite...
But I'll play the game and say "Hecate's Nightmare". This one has been growing on me.
Idk, I just listened once... but Knucklduster (remix)
This is brutal..........I'm torn between Glass Houses and Relapse....
I'm going to go with Glass Houses
The hardest one damn don't make me decide which one is my favourite Not sure If i go for Hecates or Say Never Look Back... or Glass Houses... I will vote later this week I guess
Best song off Hexed? Knuckleduster, for sure, if that counts. Out of the originals it's hard to choose, maybe Glass Houses, I haven't listened to the album that much.
Kick In The Spleen
Say never look back
Hell of a song
iI can't understand People are choosing Soon departed or Never Say look back. for me we have to pick a song in COB trademark.
for me it's Hexed & This road & Relapse ... Cannot choose 1
