there's a difference between powerful and loud tho. powerful drums rule and don't have to be loud, i.e. pete on Altars. that's how some immo mixing was in their early days. and loud is fine I think, but once it gets to a point, it just doesn't sound right.

True, Ford. Personally I'm all about deep, cavernous-sounding drums.

The quality on classic DM is awful but the mixing is far better than most of the metal today; nowadays its often too clean and compressed.

its all about sounding organic. older dm bands might not sound good but at least it sounds organic, like it's actual musicians playing the instruments. this new modern pro tools sheen that coats most of the better known metal bands really does just ruin it for me

for comparison this is my favorite production on a DM album: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDkj8X_Npj0

the clear sound is ok until some point, especially for some technical dm bands, but most of the time the album doesn't sound as heavy and powerful as it could sound because of the too clear and polished sound. Suffocation is a good example: Effigy had really, really heavy and dense sound, on Pierced From Within they've found a perfect mix I'd say (pretty clear, yet brutal and heavy), while their new one sounds weak because it's overproduced.



I hope the new Immolation won't sound like that too, because I've heard it's going to be mastered by the same guy who's done the mastering on Pinnacle of Bedlam
