That is a really well recorded album. Depending on your ears, your taste in music and the system you hear it on, you may totally hear a difference from low bit rate downloads in my opinion.

You could test first by trying to find a flac of it, download it and play it in Foobar in you rig.


One of the first albums to really amaze me from the second wave!

I actually do hear ya Redcar. There is not a whole lot that can change with the older recordings (though you be surprsied what kind of restoration can be done given good analog tapes - that's the kicker).

Anyway, bottom line is for new music DEMAND for better production. DEMAND it. I really wish folks would post on SuidAkRA FB page and ask why their latest is so horrific? I know I would if I was a big fan.



Ha! I'm just defending my thin old school black metal CDs. I have so much money in em I could have bought a car.


The greatest thing in my musical journey here though, was to play early Emperor or A Blaze In The Northern Sky and actually fall in love with the sound on it's own terms.
And yes, even though we all loved the early Emperor albums we did wonder what it would be like to hear into that dense wall of sound.


When Emperor was recording Nightside Eclipse they were recording in a small studio and doing the best they could to get the best sound. That is technically their first album, still if you hear the Cd of their demo before it you can tell they progressed a ton.

I have both Nightside Eclipse as a re released clear green vinyl, and the remastered Cd, and yes the sound creates a special mood, but you always wonder what that album would be like if recorded better.

You know what? One of these days I'll buy CDs originally purchased on iTunes. (I haven't gone gone on the vinyl trip yet). Given all the new music I'm always eyeing & classic stuff I've never owned' it's hard for mm e 2 bite the bullet & re-buy stuff I already own .

Today I received the new Gorguts and Deeds of Flesh album (really awesome and super mindtwisting schiit), one Opeth and two Moonsorrow CDs.
I'm a happy camper now :)

Oh and I also finally installed the DR Meter plugin for Foobar. Got some pretty interesting results...

Had a huge list of CDs I wanted but went to vinyl because they jus lt didn't have a bunch of the CDs.

Mouth of the Architect's latest album is awesome. Listened to it at work today. Sludgy with a lot of interesting vocal harmonies.

It's been a while since I've given this a listen, I almost forgot how good it was...

Hey Guys, Rosetta just released their new album as name your price:

 

http://theanaesthete.bandcamp.com/

 

The album cover is an interesting choice but the music is solid from what I've heard. Enjoy

I'll have to give this a full listen later...apparently they are now record label-less and this is a self released cool.gif
