|best guitar tones 2|
some more metal albums with cool guitar tones. might make a list of some cool jazz guitar tones some day too
Thick, heavy, not overly bright, but very clear. Sorta slinks around like the batmobile.
Dreams of the Carrion Kind
Classic scooped mids era tone, but it fits this album super well. Feels much bassier and meatier than most tones of the era. James's lead tone is also pretty sweet on this one, bit clearer and less gainy than his earlier stuff.
Pretty much the perfect middle ground tone for a thrash album. Not too much gain, not too much mids, not too little mids, nice and chunky. Good stuff.
Balls to the Wall
This album is well produced all round but the tone on here is super solid. Hoffman's lead tone is also amazing here.
Weird solid state guitar tone but overall very well balanced, sufficiently nasty to have its own unique character whilst being pretty well tamed and not annoyingly fuzzy like a lot of similar setups.
Age of Mastery
Big old spiky mids but it works well for this one, got a satisfying saturation on the chords and is a lot chunkier than one might expect for a relatively low gain tone with a style this lightweight.
Demiurge Of The Void
Mids city. Really grinding and abrasive, tonnes of power but clear enough for the relatively technical style of this album.
Pretty much the only exceptional aspect of the album, the spitty guitar tone here is really exceptional and lends a depth to the whole sound of the album that the other Paradise Lost albums don't really have.
In the Arms of Devastation
Boring band but the guitar tone here pulverizes
The Fathomless Mastery
Boring album, but the weird mix of HM-2 grind with leaner, cleaner tones allows for it to be a lot heavier on the relatively palm-mute heavy riffs here compared to the also very well produced Nightmares Made Flesh
