Yeah, my other guitarist called it "the wet sock over the mic"
Agreed on SYTE! It was a brilliant, edgy conceptual piece. I don't get the nu-metal comparisons, either. If anything, it was their most industrial
sounding album. Guitars had a hard cut sound, the drums were heavily saturated and spacey, plenty of use of samples and triggers, and Örjan Örnkloo's great synth work backed it all up. Not nu metal in the least.
