Absolutely horrible. Which sucks because it's probably their best, second to Kill 'Em All.




It doesnt sound too terrible to me. Yeah its missing the bass, but its that dry metal sound that I like. Its not unlistenable because of the mix, at least not to me. Im used to listening to demos that sound like they were recorded inside a tin can so maybe I have a bit more tolerance.

Absolutely. I think bad production has a huge effect on the average listener as well, even if they don't notice it.

I think maybe a few demo's aside, I've never heard a band I've liked then been turned off by the mix. I know loads of people who are, and they lose out on music they like.


It's kind of the point with Black Metal, so I don't know if you can call it "Bad". Death Metal is hit and miss with mixing, like, I used to hate the mix in TRITSIO by At The Gates, but now the mix sounds perfect on it to me. Eucharist's 'A Velvet Creation' has an issue with the panning and the drummers can be overbearing sometimes, so there's an example of a meh mix.

I know I've mentined it before, but Scream Bloody Gore by Death is damn near unlistenable for me. The mixing is SOOO awful...

This.

A lot of 80's and 90's extreme Metal was like that for a couple reasons. One of the reasons being that the bands had a limited budget and funded themselves for most of their landmark albums, and the other reason was that it was just an intense, jarring sound that people liked.

Get off the metal for a tic!

Californication by the chili peppers and iggy pops "remaster" of raw power both sound awful but are classic albums musically.

Admittedly not much, but The Sound of Perseverance was a helluva lot cleaner than Scream Bloody Gore.

Honestly, I only like their last 3 releases, but TSoP had some issues as well. Specifically, the guitar tone was obnoxious, I still love the album, though.

Yes. Just look at My Arms, Your Hearse. Good music, terrible mix.

Fly on the Wall by AC/DC has an awful mix, but I love the songs, and it gives a really great raw sound to the songs on there, which are awesome and hilarious and all around thoroughly enjoyable. Definitely one of my favourite of their albums.

inb4 all the standard AC/DC flames, but go ahead and post them anyways if you like. They're ****ing awesome.

While I can stomach bad production in punk and emo related genres, State Faults' Desolate Peaks has a really odd bad mixing job that really makes what would have been a fantastic album very unenjoyable

Standard AC/DC flames? Are they blue flames? White flames? Red flames? What are they?

Yes!

I have been thinking of Raw Power this whole time, reading through the other posts.
I also get really sick of the indie rock 'tape hiss' this. It's really anoying sometimes.
