sounds to me like something the engineer did. you can clearly hear the crunch of the tone, and its being tightly played. a good tone is in there, it was just neutered in post.
Who the fuck is saying that now? :lol: Several times now I've explained that I thought his tone sucked compared to everyone else's from the same era, not by modern standards. I was referring to your comment that Dave didn't sit up late at night tweaking his tone. Nobody did. You did it in the studio back then, because you weren't doing it yourself like a bedroom tweaker/youtuber. You worked with an engineer and real gear to get it how you wanted it. That's what I was getting at.Well it's a good thing I didn't even come close to doing that then. :lol:
I have no issue with Mustaine's tone. Just posers who think it should sound like Killswitch Engage. :fawk:
No argument here, other than the fact that I never actually said it wasn't bad. :lol: I said it's subjective, as I know some people like it (i.e. it's not universally hated and/or objectively bad).I'm still trying to process Mattyus arguing that Dime's tone wasn't bad. :lol: I mean, come on man, Randall is what you posted through when you were broke. It's a step above Crate. His tone was damn near early black metal awful. :lol:
Agreed on both counts.I can agree with that, but I still like that sound. It's mega nasally/thin but I like it.
But Killers is obviously better produced and would have been really interesting to hear the debut with such sound!!!
