Best audiophile metal and rock albums - Page 27

post #391 of 405

Ohh I got one!

 

Metallica's $5.98/$9.98 Garage Days Revisited

 

Great dynamic range and explosive sound.

post #392 of 405

my opinion is the best soundings albums are Jens Bogren's recorsds:

 

Haken, Leprous, Headspace albums (and maybe etc,but i don't know his other records)

 

 

i always wondering how clear and good these album's sounds!!

 

i think these are the best!!

Nice to see there are others who know about Division by Zero,  Ne Obliviscaris or Gazpacho.

You have to try Affector - Harmaghedon , Amaseffer - Exodus - Slaves for Life , David Maxim Micic - Bilo 3.0 , Galahad - Empires Never Last Green , Carnation - Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness , Echo Trails - Ode to The Familiar Strangers

Best dynamic album:

 

Metallica - Metallica (1991)

Sounded great on the crappy low-end equipment I owned as a 16-year-old boy back in 1991 and still sounds great on all my headphones and speakers.

 

Best "hot" (post loudness war, low dynamic range) album :

 

Communic - The Bottom Deep (2011)

Very well balanced, very good production, no clipping. The song "Denial" for example has sub bass elements, the are awesome!

At this place I would like to say a huge cudos to Iced Earth:

 

They never went below a dynamic range of 6 min/8 average on all their studio CDs in 25 years.

post #396 of 405

Some of the best bands I had heared are within Audiotree Live sessions. I really advice everyone to go and give them a listen!

You can try 'Lost' by James Ferguson :) Relaxing vocals.

Yeah buddy! Finally someone here to represent some traditional stuff! I just got the first Iced Earth album from 1990, unmastered. Holy cow. That shed guitar! Schaffer for President! Also, some Manowar albums (particularly 1992 & 1996) sound exceptional compared to any underground bands.

 

It's funny noone deigned to mention Pantera...especially Vulgar Display of Power.

I absolutely second this. And if we are talking about great (sounding) albums from that time I would also like to throw in

 

Machine Head - Burn My Eyes

Fear Factory - Demanufacture

Grip Inc. - Power of Inner Strength

wow, Machine Head back then was like a complete breath of fresh air among the umpteenth grunge album, I remember. It was like a gem in a bowl of c r a p.

I don't really think about fidelity when thinking machine head. Guess it is the blackening at fault

Ne Obliviscaris - really talented musicians, very complex songs!

I'm sure it's been mentioned in this thread (but haven't found it yet) are Nine Inch Nails hi-rez releases

 

"The Slip" was released free to fans at 24/96 when it came out at the band's website.   My email code still works so it may be available for others as well.  

 

Some of his later albums were also released in Hi-res formats including the latest:   Hesitation Marks

One of the very few metal albums I've quite enjoyed on my HD800 - O2/ODAC combo was Megadeth - Countdown To Extinction (Toshiba-EMI, TOCP-7164, Japan edition).
