Looking for a well recorded rock album that I can rock out to.

Anyone? Minimal downtime.. nothing boring. Screams like Opeth are fine..

Chaotic, ready to go kick some one's ass is one way to describe what I want..

One thing I generally don't enjoy, though, are high pitched growls..

Dream Theater - Train of Thought
Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger
Voivod - Nothingface

Edit: Oops, you said well recorded. Oh, well, these will still make you want to kick ass anyway.

Try Mercenary - 11 Dreams and Amaran - Pristine in Bondage. They're fantastic.

A lot of rock music can never be "well recorded" just because it wasn't meant to sound realistic.

However, I think that just about everything from the Tzadik label (and, therefore, almost all releases from John Zorn) sound fabulous. I'd recommend checking out early John Zorn stuff like Naked City, Locus Solus, or The Big Gundown.

Trust me, after hearing any of that stuff, you'll want to kick somebody right in the shins..

Rhapsody - Dawn of Victory. As long as you have decent tolerance to cheesey lyrics, they're loud, proud, and very exciting.

I really really enjoy Opeth's Ghost Reveries. Excellently recorded imo. Not audiophile quality I guess but pretty kickass as far as metal albums go.

Children of Bodom does some pretty good metal recordings too. Check out Hatebreeder and Follow the Reaper.

Fair enough, but it does rock out pretty hard, and I think that might be more important.

If you like Ghost Reveries, I'd check out Scar Symmetry - 'Pitch Black Progress'.

It doesn't have the dramatic dark/light changes of Opeth, but has an excellent mix of heavy/sung vocals, and is well recorded too IMO.

I would give the new Tool album, 10,000 days a try. It's definitely well recorded and although it's not kick-ass-rock all the way through, it has its moments and will give you a good test to see if your gear can handle bass

I picked up MOP last month (whatever version they're selling in Best Buy nowadays) and while I love the album, the production was nothing to write home about. How would you say Ride the Lightning or Kill Em All sounds better?
