DG probably wanted the music to be BLARING LOUD. I mean, listen to Foo Fighters. No wait, don't do that.

I know this: equally tuned heads (given that they are tuned correctly in respect to the drum's natural pitch) provide maximum resonance. The wider the interval between heads, the less resonance. So you can take that either way. Batter head higher, or resonant higher. Experiment and see if you can fi...

Totally appreciate a) extreme metal being discussed in Tape Op; and b) Marston's frank thoughts on it. I've heard some of his recorded work and to me it sounds like he's finding success achieving the balance between organic/inorganic sounds that he talks about. In other words, it can sound heavy/hug...

That's a good point. I don't know why I went off on that rant except maybe that I wanted to iterate that solo'd instruments can sound really crappy, until you un-solo them and voila.

There shouldn't be a standard that exists in a vacuum, and what the drums sound like by themselves isn't really relevant unless the song itself contains a drums-only part. Even then: what's going on in the song at that point? What is the song trying to convey? Some songs call for a dry, suffocating,...

Everyone gets mad at me when I do this, but instead of using moongels or tape, I like to loosen one lug near me until the ring is gone, then crank up the opposite one until it gets loud and awesome. I'm sure it's bad for some reason, but it always sounds great. I've heard Levon Helm of "The Band" f...

Definitely on par with the other songs you've posted. Actually maybe the vocals were too spiky. Did you use any compression?
