Anyway problem of polished production is not being polished, but how it was polished and in in 98-99% it is done wrongly..... Laughing

"Good production" ruined a lot more bands in the late-90s than it does now. I don't know if that says more about production techniques getting better or bands not sucking as much in general. Who knows. The late-90s pretty much sucked for metal, though.

Ive had this discussion several times, that a new vocabulary needs to be developed to discuss this subject meaningfully.

For example, Andy Sneap style production is bullshit. Its " polished" but sampled drums, DI'd/plugin guitar tones and overcompressed/limited mixes are NOT "good".

DEAD CONGREGATION - GRAVES OF THE ARCHANGELS has incredibly clear and crisp production that never detracts from the music.

Some of them sound good but some do not... Like Paramount Evil. There's not many albums that have as shitty or worse drum sound!

That' because it was recorded here in Mexico at some shitty studio, although I got a special spot for it... I enjoy it though.

Not kidding. With this album DB delivered their best traits and even though i see often people praising For All Tid and Stormblåst, this era beats those old albums easily.


I beg to differ sir. I never cared for that or anything after. I really wanted to like it when Hellhammer played drums on "Sorte..." but it couldn't get past my bullshit detector.

Later FUNERAL MIST / MARDUK / OFERMOD / MERRIMACK good polish, good record....

I agree with that, the late records are really overproduced, the drums and guitars are very clean, lots of ugly triggers, but the whole sounds kickass as fuck.

I'd also quote Vader's Litany. It's a very good example of polish (ahah) yet great production.

GRAVEN "Perished and Forgotten" is excellent:

I always HATED the production on Human Remains and Blood of the Nations (both done by Andy Sneap).

Good one that comes into my mind are Lutomysl's selftitled

That production really reminds me of Darkthrone's "Total Death". But the songs are better.
