    I’m a huge FF fan, they got me in to music overall and playing guitar. The bar is set low for me to be amped up by new material by them... but that was just bad.

    How do you blow your recording advance from the label, crowdfund more money for mixing/mastering and still end up with such a poor sounding recording? Super twangy and bad tone to go along with the uninspiring riffs.

    All that being said, I’m still going to listen to the album and be beyond excited the second it shows up on Apple Music

    If you can make a better sounding recording please let me know the secret, the tone is very tight & mixed well its just how the dude plays its no different than anything else Dino has done post Demanufacture, it may even be a little tighter! You can clearly hear the Kemper & he uses light strings! All these critics but funny no links to their fantastic music/production work!

    I've recorded some shitty-sounding guitars in my day, so I guess that makes me obligated to like everything that sounds better. Fuck.

    from experience, something like that would happen if it was fired from some distance. say more than 100 meters. the piece of metal he mentions, is a thin strip of aluminum, and wouldn't stop anything more than another piece of aluminum.

    the rifling marks are clearly visible, so it was definitely fired from a gun. but maybe he did shoot it at something soft, recovered it and put it in there.

    It's not deformed at all, which is why I made the joke about it being planted.

    Sucks that one, if not my favorite metal band ever has so much B.S. and drama involved.

    Anyway, I could watch Dino do playthrough's all day long.
    And I will have a Elan Metalhead Marshall some day!

    IDK why people are giving him shit for his tone. Sounds better than his tone on Industrialist or Genexus.

    I can’t help but think people are comparing his tone to modern contemporaries (djent and whatnot). FF has never been about anything other than crushing distortion with just enough definition to emphasize Dino’s palm muting (with the very occasional clean-ish section). But you already know this… :)

    Seriously, the tone on (what are imo) classics like Demanufacture and Obsolete kind of sounds like crap - and yet it’s friggin awesome in the given context.

    It's hard to explain, but his tone has this kind of middy-fizz that usually sounds "crispy" and aggressive whereas with the new song the characteristic sounds (to me) mushy instead.

    I'd put the tone on genexus over this IMO. Sounded crisper to my ears.

    Nah, Genexus got that weird attack that makes me hate a lot of Kemper tones.

    Lol, settle down tiger... they're only words, they can't hurt you:cond:

    Dino's tone has been different on every record he's ever been been on - I'd be incredibly impressed if someone sounded identical despite cycling through different amps, effects, cabs, guitars, pickups, studios, engineers, producers, microphones etc. over several decades. If you think this is 'no different' then maybe you need to get your hearing checked, or just over-react to other peoples opinions a little bit less? Your call :)

    I wouldn't say this tone is more or less tight than usual for him, but to my ears there's an obnoxious fizz/twang to it that really isn't to my tastes and isn't something I'd typically expect to hear from him. Obsolete was definitely fizzy as anything, and he's always had a lot of top end and attack, but this isn't too reminiscent of prior tones to me.
