Got my hands on the album today... I won't praise it yet, but I feel that it's a grower. There really aren't any standout songs yet, but as a whole the album is really solid.

Stand Defiant was a real standout after first listen. Fucking great track. Now it's the 2nd spin and sounds better and better.

SCARRED BUT NOT BEATEN
WE ARE NOT DEFEATED
A STAND DEFIANT - A WILL OF TRIUMPF!

Ok I take back what I said about the production. It is indeed very clear for D666, but I think that-after repeated listenings- it fits the new material perfectly. The dynamics are shit indeed, but -come on- we can't judge from some overcompressed mp3 files.
The album is a fucking grower, it is getting better and better every time I listen to it and contains some of the most mature and best tracks Destroyer have ever written(Sermon being the best). Damn, really looking forward to the official release.

Those mp3 are encoded in VBR, same as everything else on my iPod... and everything else on my iPod sounds fine. Besides, I'd love to see the compression algorithm which mixes the drums louder than the guitars or vocals. Razz I'm more than willing to reserve final judgment until the album gets here, but it sure sounds to me as if the album itself is overcompressed, not the mp3.

As for the rest, I agree -- it's a great album with a ton of killer songs on it, and I do enjoy listening to it despite the production. The only problem is, I've played it probably 25 times in the last week, and I still have only the vaguest idea what the songs are supposed to be about, because 80% of the vocals are hard to make out. As far as I'm concerned, that's FAR from a fitting production for a sing-along band like D666.

I can forgive the total gutlessness of the production, but the fact that you can't even hear what's going on is unacceptable. Too bad, because this could have easily been the best album of the year otherwise.

I don't hear the problem with the production, sounds fine to me- each layer can be distinguished from another, etc. Judging a production from hearing extremely compressed mp3s is jumping the gun a bit...

The production bothered me at first, and still does after repeated listening, but not as much. It does seem to be mixed "backwards" with the drums and rhythm guitars dominating and frequently overpowering the vocals and leads.

Still a lot of goosebump moments and a lot of other elements that make it an excellent album. Of course there's always the chance that the actual cd will sound different, which I will continue to hope for, but as is this just might be the worse D666 album so far, even if it is marginal and mostly due to production issues.

And am I just completely batshit nuts, or are there a couple of moments on the album that sound like Amon Amarth?

These mp3 are encoded in VBR, just as the rest of my collection is, and I do most of my listening in mp3, so I for one am not comparing apples and oranges here. I'll be glad to eat my words if the CD or vinyl sounds significantly different -- overjoyed, even! -- but unless they released promo CDs with a totally different mix on them, I doubt that's going to happen. VBR mp3 compression can make an album sound worse, certainly... but it doesn't do so to this extent, not in my experience. And it certainly cannot make the drums louder than the lead guitars and vocals -- that's a problem with the mix, not the encoding.

I hope you are nuts to make that comparison. Surprised
I have to judge for myself as soon as I buy it. Fuck mp3.

"I am the Wargod", "Lone Wolf Winter", "The Eternal Glory of War"... Easily you said ?

"Defiance" is a good album, among others, and it's not a surprise since we're talking about D666.

I do agree that these PR tracks are great but the studio execution is weak in my opinion. The fact that they do sound amazing live is another story.
