There are samples on ITunes as well, sounds brutal as **** man!
Link to samples?
Nevermind, found them!
If that doesn't work (that's the Dutch iTunes Store) try looking up the EP in the iTunes store of the region of your own account.
Listened to about 20 seconds of each song, want it to be fresh once it's out!
EDIT: By the way, any words on a physical release?
What tunings did you use for this thousands of evils?
I am so keen for this EP. I actually find myself looking forward so much to hearing the vocals and the lyrics, at first when I heard Masstaden I was a little caught off guard by the change in the vocal style but I really think I prefer it in context with how the rest of the bands sound has progressed.
I don't really know whether it's been mentioned through this thread or elsewhere, but the other thing I really love about Masstaden is the way the drums actually sound like drums, not super processed sound replaced ultra quantized garbage. the whole band just sounds "real" on the album, down to the finest details.
that's an interesting opinion considering they didn't even use guitar amplifiers haha
that's a good point. I was actually reluctant to post anything regarding the guitar tones partly because every second post in this thread seems to be someone begging to have the pod xt patches for their sound when it's been stated several times that post processing is a big part of it.
I definitely agree with you though, it is interesting to make that comment considering how the album was recorded in terms of the guitars. it would be equally as valid to claim that my statement was made because of my lack of knowledge and experience with recording guitar sounds (and micing actual amps to be specific), but you could also interpret it as meaning that even to someone more experienced than your average layman the guitar tones in general on the album are well crafted, and thoughtfully mixed to the point where the fact that they were produced "synthetically" becomes irrelevant.
maybe it's just an ironic coincidence that the more processed and refined guitar sounds are becoming these days the more people crave the rawness and authenticity of actual drums when it comes to studio recordings? I would honestly be interested to know a little more specifically how the drum sounds on the album were produced, I'd be quite surprised to learn that there was a lot of sound replacement done.
pretty sure the drums were programmed too.
yep, there's an interview somewhere where they are talking to the whole band, and basically, the drummer didn't have the ability to get in the studio, so everything is programmed in SD2.0.
all my wat. it really does.
this is the evilest sounding shit I've heard in many a day.
Daayyumm. It sounds like they've outdone themselves from the itunes samples.
Hey Dan, what tuning did you use for Mist förståndet? Sounds heavy as tits.
Mist Förståndet (which is essentially what the EP is about, everything prior to it is meant to be a build up) is in drop C# octave hence the string buzz ^^
it's cool people like the måsstaden production, i love it too, this time around however we went with pump compression as i guess its what most people want for now after all, gotta compromise right =)
we go with programmed drums for two reasons, it fits the material and it's not as big effort..right now most of our funds go to touring as well
Also, Daniel, I would love to hear a new full length with similar production to Måsstaden. It's golden, and I actually think of it as part of your sound. The evil sound!
you guys don't get money from the label to record?
sounds killer as always seyd
century has been very generous to us and this EP is actually outside of the contract we have with them, but they still fund us which is great. thing is we live in sweden and our tax agency is having a slaughterfest on us every month (welfare n shit you know)
The part with the clean vocals on Längstmedån is absolutely amazing, I just keep coming back to it, and I really really hope you guys will do more with cleans on coming releases!
I felt my soul being absorbed into darkness from just the previews, I can't ....ing wait for the release
Did I miss a release date somewhere??
