Mayhem - Mediolanum Capta Est

I know it's a live album but it still counts. Vocals are also pretty horrible, Maniac sounds like Donald Duck.

And also my favorite... Macabre - Gloom

example? I mean, absolutely nobody should underrate the sound-technician...


Here's an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ma6ZpplTXpU


And it's even worst live... They totally butcher all classic tracks nowdays.

Nothing is wrong with this album. It's perfection.

I don't hear anything wrong with this album. It's near perfection.


The drum sound is terribly mixed, paper-thin digital hell to my ears, just terrible.


Never liked those at all either. Takes a lot away from the album for me.

Some of you guys are very picky. I don't think I ever particularly noticed the drums on the album, which I regard as a good thing usually. Listening to it now, they do sound a little thin and clean compared to the other instruments, but I don't think it's a serious detraction at all.

I will have to include Been Caught Buttering here. The drums reminded me of wet loaves of bread being struck.

Yeah, I know it was listed in the other thread but when I first heard this cd, wet bread came to mind. I don't care for it.....

Just remembered that the drum sound on Cradle Of Filth - Cruelty And The Beast is really really awful.

Easily Diabolic - Vengeance Ascending. Some of best deathmetal arrangements killed by most godawful alldominating absurdly LOUD and bassy triggered kickdrum. Too bad...


Same with Vader - Litany. Too loud, too dominant into the sound, too clinical. Unlistenable for me.

Additionally a lot of bands with standard Tommy Tägtgren production. The lousy hi-hat and the buried bassdrum sound the same on countless releases.

The latest Vader record is way too overproduced as well, so is the latest Benediction.

Emperor's Anthems. Despite being otherwise good album but those drums are really awful. Most of the time you can't hear the snare at all.
