    I actuwllt slightly prefer the DND tone over Animosity. Not sure if it's the production or the fact it's all Mark IV instead of being Mark + whatever John used.

    That'll do it. :lol: Checking his discography the dude mixed some albums with MASSIVE sounds (particularly Breaking Benjamin's Phobia).

    EDIT: oh shit he also did Emigrate's Silent So Long and and Alter Bridge's One Day Remains. The first 30 Seconds to Mars album also sounds huge.

    Interesting take. Both are so good. To my ear the bass guitar sounded a lot gnarlier on Animosity and that really shaped the low end. The overall sound of "Crucified" is my favorite, I think it sounds so killer in the verses with that guitar chug.

    That first 30TM album was fucking GREAT. They actually opened for Sevendust in support of that album, caught them at the Hampton Beach Casino. There was one dick right in front of Jared who kept flipping him off, Jared just waved at him and smiled a few times, then at one point said “You know what, everyone, just put your middle fingers in the air. Fuck everything!”. The guy was lost in a sea of middle fingers for a while after that.

    Bob Ezrin also produced that record, which definitely lent a hand towards the more Floyd-y sounds on it, for sure. I wish they would have stayed in the vein of that album.
