    I'm not a experienced listener to "industrial metal" or whatever thats called.

    But I get your point about it...

    Imagine if it sounded like THIS (it kicks ass so maybe not appropriate for thread, I just wanted to give an example of "industrial" (?) sound that just sound amazing)

    as a demonstration, the 2012 re-recording:

    I prefered the first

    But maybe I also liked that it was tuned higher and played faster.

    Al can write some good music (Psalm 69, the Bush Trilogy), but the dude has no ear for sound. Even the best Ministry albums sound really, really bad.

    Oh one more because fuck it. Sabbath's The Eternal Idol. Tony Iommi's guitar sounds REALLY bad. But some of my favorite Sabbath songs come from that record.

    Yeah, don't think the second sounds great either - could of course be youtube messing with the sound quality. I've definitely heard great tones from Testament, but I don't think that youtube video is a great example. Sounds quite muffled and muddy.

    That 2012 re-recording has been shared here before and it still sounds awful. The drums are sterile with no life and do prefer the tone of the original recording. There's just more life in it. I think Souls of Black sounds worse than Practice. They rushed that album to capitalize on the success of Practice and I think it shows in the sound of the album.

    1919 Eternal for sure. Even as an 18 year old when that came out I thought the tone/production sucked. It sounded like industrial metal because of that horribly scooped toneless guitar sound. It's like he's mic'd up the cab with a bit crusher. In a baked bean can.

    Every Primus album except for Anti-Pop. I absolutely love Primus and Larry LaLonde and get that it's a part of the package but man...

    Ever see them live? It's even worse.

    That is such a good album. Not going to lie, in my bands in the 90s I totally tried to rip off their sound and style of that album.
