This is... interesting... Abysmal Dawn covering Candlemass.
NEW OLD MAN GLOOM NEW OLD MAN ME
Whoa this is absolutely horrible!
Well, they did... The chorus sounds pretty good IMO, but the rest sounds weak and sterile. I'd so much rather just listen to the original. Oh well, at least they didn't change the song to sound like their later material...
So this is what liquid diarrhea being poured over my adolescence in a very careful and meticulous manner would sound like
I can't tell if that's a drum machine or not. I've never been big on the "modern metal sound", and stuff like this sort of cements why. Sure, everything is clear, but there's no dynamics, there's no energy, there's no room or feel.
Agreed. This sounds absolutely terrible compared to the original. What was even the point of this? I've actually been revisiting the old In Flames records lately -- sooooo good! I can't think of a band that has done a worse 180.
This is, of course, my opinion, but what I've noticed with metal bands that get "big" and start to use "better" and more modern production, the music and sound suffers. I really can't stand the modern approach anymore -- it doesn't sound real.
Yikes! Really weak thin sounding guitars that don't even sit in the mix. It sounds like a no-guitar version where someone recorded guitars for a youtube cover and has this unmixed/unmastered sound throughout. Anders newer style doesn't have the anger and intensity to get across the emotion he sang it on the original. It works great for the newer In Flames material but doesn't work for this song.
They must have known this wasn't a good idea. Very odd.
Honestly, I'd take much of their recent stuff over this abomination. And I wouldn't blame this on the "modern production"... there are tons of "modern" death metal/melodeath/deathcore/whatever bands where you can clearly hear every single note and everything is clean and sterile af, but it still sounds... idk, heavy. Aggressive. This sounds about as aggressive as Maroon 5. If they did that to a shitty song... can't be bothered. With this... it's a bit sad
Luc Lemay AND Dave Davidson. aka aural obliteration via alliteration
Pretty incredible ERG black metal / dissonant stuff. Kind of like a blackened Nightmarer? https://cosm0vore.bandcamp.com/albu...v5ClMcdGK3LcpmGz5DP5T6Pl7L9dnuUiubGZyqiM_8zVM
like if polyphia played tech death. catchy melodies all ooooover it
Seasons of Dark is a fuckin banger. The whole album is great though. Worth checking out if you dig melodeath with a heavy dose of black metal
Ooooh hoo hoo hoo I dig this split!
I am sharing everything Blayne on Banger TV pointed out recently because this shit kicks total ass:
