Pretty cool insight on the album, I like the direction they're going with the self interpretive lyrics and what he said about metal music videos.. Also agree with what they said about the production on Death Magnetic, it could have been much better

Guttersniper: Pretty much everyone knows Death Magnetic production could have been waaay better, lol. And with the whole music video thing, I agree that Indie, and even Alternative bands, make pretty cool videos. I'm guilty of not digging the 'creative' approach to Metal music videos most times though. I can make all sort of assumptions as to why, but I honestly don't know. Now I feel bad dammit.


The process of dwindling down 20-something songs to a handful of 13 sounds tiring. Coming up with them all, playing all of them straight and having to decide what to keep and what to drop...eesh. They make this album and everything associated with it sound rather exciting. Sometimes it sucks that not many people will actually appreciate everything you put into something.

I feel appreciative about the producer's method of getting tones and details down. I've personally never heard of that: 12:02-13:01

Death Magnetic, I wonder why they compressed the f*** out of everything, not just the guitars, as people often think, but everything. I wonder if it was a mastering mistake instead...

The thing with compression is, you can certainly get more punch out, that's the whole idea, but you also lose the dynamics along the way.
And Rick Rubin LOVES to push the compression in his mixes. Just listen to Chat Smith's drums on any of the RHCP albums! Oh, do the meters fly!

I don't know... the mistake seems so amateurish ( I mean, even an amateur recording musician like me can spot the problem ;) that I wonder if something went wrong in the mastering process instead, and they simply pushed the levels too hard, kinda compressed something that was already heavily compressed.

In any case guys, Death Magnetic should be a good lesson for all of us making music out there; simply cross over "Death Magnetic" and write "Mixing - what not to do".

Any objections?

WOLF7: I would have loved to have added the "Death Magnetic Mixing - what not to do" line to the 101 Rules of Thrash Metal...but then I remembered that album doesn't fall under that genre :p Tehehehe
