Title: Sound Quality of the remasters
Post by: ADAngerousMeeting on December 05, 2006, 04:30:43 pm
I am wondering what kind of Kbps the remasters of Dont break the oath, abigail, fatal portrait, etc.. have.

You know, it is kinda shocking to know those remasters will soon be 10 old next year!

The remasters sounded great on the two first albums, big and juicy, but there was not much they could do with "Them", because of its purposely over-dry drum sound. Same thing with "Conspiracy" and "The Eye" - both very rushed productions.

King abandoned his late 80's fat sound, for a more dry Mercyful fate-ish production style on later KD albums. I blame Kol Marshall. Damn the man.

Why is it that Andy La Rocque, as a producer, can get huge sounds out of similar bands, like Evergrey, but not be trusted to pull the same oomph out of KD? Hire Andy as the sole producer for the next KD album, in Andy's excellent studio. That is my vote.

there's an interesting comment on 25th Roadrunner Abigail about the recordinds and the use of Reverb in everything. Sure it' dated tech, but it sounded great back there.

I love the production on Puppet Muster, Abigail 2, and House of God; all is very clean and heavy
