I actually do have one Pantera CD.

But can’t believe how bad this band is? Pantera absolutely sucks!

Bad!
lol random

I spent some time with pantera and black label society in my late teens. I like dimes guitarwork, but i cant remember the last time i played through a pantera album.

Started with death and black metal, ended with death and black metal.

I bought a used CD of In Flames Siren Charms. I know it's not their best album but it was missing from my collection. The CD physically looks in good shape and I was able to rip it with EAC no problems but is it me or is it the worstly recorded and mastered album of all times? There is also a total wrongness with the level matching where most songs are at 40% peak compared to song #6 (title: Siren Charms)? It's totally unlistenable! it's not even that song #6 is compressed and others not, they are all terribly compressed (TY loudness wars) they just seem soooo terribly level matched. Here is some info from song #1 and song #6 I made with files totally unaltered:

Is it me or it this just totally foul? The attachment is the EAC txt report of the CD rip so you can check.

A sense of Purpose is the last of their albums that was even remotely good anyway, so you're not missing out on anything.

I probably should have liked these guys about 16 years ago? Now they are maybe an investigation? This live album and video is “OK”. But it has inspired me to listen to the back catalogue?
