More like great! Or even excellent. Perhaps superb.
Totally forgot this was a Ballou, dude does everything now. Did he mix the new KEN Mode album too?

idk its all kinda samey to me and it dragged. they have a cool sound mixing the standard rock sound with sludge but i feel like if they stepped out of their box they'd be a lot better

Have you listened to the earlier work? I think it's better, but this is still great.

Sounds like a mix of High On Fire, Mastodon, Adebisi Shank, Baroness, Converge, and a bunch of other bands. Good stuff.

i want to like this so much but it's so badly mastered it's legitimately painful to listen to

there's clipping all over the place, all the instruments sound like they're mixed louder than each other, and it's compressed beyond belief. also the drums sound terrible.

seriously, the distortion on kicking is audible even at low volumes

The sound on this album is perfect. You must not know how to rip albums properly or you're deaf.

Personally, I don't find the mix that bad, but everyone has different thoughts. I can't stand the mix on the latest Karnivool albums mix, but I think I'm a minority there.

Nah that's mp3 master as they stated. For me, the album's sound's not overly distorted. You know that sludge is the type of music that basically relies on distortion. The production is great on this one, but to each his own.
