    Do you know any metal albums with reverb effect on the rhythm guitar?

    At some parts I think they use some reverb on Morbid Angel's Gateways album.
    I think it's cool if it gives a cavernes, ambient feel to it.

    Thank you for your tips.

    First name that comes to mind is Devin Townsend and his plethora of projects. Even if rhythm guitar doesn't have reverb, many of his songs are drenched in effects that create massive ambience. Here's one of my favorites:

    I believe old Slayer, on Hell Awaits, has reverb on the mix/guitars.

    Basically /thread.

    In 2016 Nolly was hailed by a lot of us Devy fans for being able to convince him to get a "dry" sound on his rhythm tracks for Transcendence (still basically him standing in a huge garage instead of a huge hangar).



    Other than that I can absolutely recommend Passages, which is a melodic doom / sometimes ambient thing from Josh Middleton (Sylosis/Architects)



    This is easily the driest song of the record and is still pretty floating.

    Doesn’t most doom have reverb on the rhythm?

    I think a lot of metal albums have at least a little reverb. Totally dry sound sticks out to me.

    But yeah doomy stuff frequently has heavy doses. Especially death/doom, funeral doom. Ahab, My Dying Bride, Asphyx.

    Also, lots of black metal has heavy ambience.

    Any Scorpions record from the early 70's through the late 80's.
