    Trolling: Are you doing it?

    Lol I am gonna be that guy that benevolently hates on anyone that has anything bad to say about Weightless. Yes, the production is different from the s/t but I think it works and I'm grateful that there are still bands out there that can manage to raise the hair on my arms.

    No Im not trolling, it is a dry style of production.

    I'm curious what the sample in David is from, if anything.

    Agreed. Weightless has a ton of cool ideas but a lot of them lack good development and the flow in some parts is pretty bleh

    This is an honest question seeing as how I know barely anything about recording, mixing etc. What do you mean by dry? Like I know there's wet and dry but I have no clue how those terms actually apply to the sound of the finish product.

    Sorry for the offtopic, but I'm guessing you're the same Zach who wrote the abiogensis/swallowed by the sky etc stuff on UG? I recognise you're screen name from ages ago. That stuff is sick man, I still listen to it semi-reguarly even though there's only midi verions and check to see if you've posted more, would love to hear some actual recordings of it one day. :yesway:

    Yes, the production is a bit dry....and honestly if it were me I would make it so that it had more of a "punch" to it all - but I think that is best left up to the actual live performance to blow your shit away. I kinda like how they didn't stray too far away from the very coded, programmed-sounding bits on the first album, but all the while still made everything sound completely and totally new and unheard of. Just my :2c: however. It's a completely atypical metal album, and it captivates me from beginning to end.

    The second half of Hyphens seems to be the intro/main riff of Weightless.

    1:07 is javier's song. Maybe they did record it but it didn't fit with the flow of the album and will be released as a B-Side?

    sorry for the off-topic response but yup that's me haha. I kinda quit posting stuff on there a while ago though, it's just kind of dead now and I hardly get any feedback anymore. I definitely am trying to work on recording stuff, but my computer sucks and crashes all the time haha. I just have to get a new one and everything else will be set. Thanks though man, It's nice to know people like my like my work so much :cheers:

    It was just a joking way to say that I'm in turbo fanboy mode for this album right now, no offense intended.
