Iron Maiden-Live After Death, only cause the whole thing except drums was over dubbed after.

For a real Live CD not dubbed.......Slayer-Decade OF Aggression.

List of Albums that have great production for me, I already made a post but I will make it longer right meow.


Killswitch Engage- As Daylight Dies
Into Eternity- Buried in Oblivion and The Scattering of The Ashes
Inflames- Come Clarity
Divine Heresy- Bleed The Fifth (I do not know if many of you have heard this, I think it is amazing)
Danko Jones- Sleep Is The Enemy
Children of Bodom- Follow The Reaper
Bad Religion- The Empire Strikes First
Kalmah- They Will Return
Nevermore- Dead Heart, In A Dead World
Nightwish- Dark Passion Play (Fricken excellent album, the guitar tone in Amaranth is awsome!)
Pearl Jam- Ten
Soilwork- Sworn To A Great Divide (Devin Townsend strikes again!)
Sonata Arctica- Ecliptica
Blind Guardian- A Twist in the Myth
All That Remains- The Fall of Ideals
Firewind- Allegiance
Black Label Society- Mafia
Tool- 10,000 Days (Don't really like any other Tool besides this)
Megadeth- Rust in Peace (Classic)
Journey- The Essential Journey Greatest Hits album
Gamma Ray- Majestic (Epic!)

Alot of you are probably going to disagree, but every single Iron Maiden album to this date is absolutely fantastic, it is just a pleasure to listen to them. Every Single ONE!

I just threw in a few rock acts that I think are great to.

Stay Heavy

Devin Townsend did not do the whole STAGD album for Soilwork, he only recorded Speed's vocals.  But the production is pretty kick ass regardless.

And in regards to your DPP comment, I agree, I love when the guitar kicks in for the first time on The Poet and the Pendulum.  It just sets the tone for the entire album to be awesome.

The one they brought out recently after Dino left the band cant rememebr the name, but it was pretty brutal for me.

Scar Symmytry Pitch Black Progress is probably one of my favorite albums of all time, it sounds absolutely amazing.

And Spud, Maiden is definately THE BEST band in the world.

Heh, I was going to see them in Toronto, infact I had my plane ticket booked, and I had a ticket sitting infront of me for this sold out show, and then I came to the realization that I have other finances, so instead I am waiting two months to see megadeth in vancouver, along with saskatoon, so that will be ok, but if you know any maiden fan that wants a good seat ticket, let me know man, I am willing to let it go for one hundred dollars.

Ya I didnt think it would be so much, but it was like 1500 all said and done... Next time so probably next year or something I am going to get a group of dudes together and we will just haul ass in a car out there. Split the gas between 4 people, share hotels and shit, it would be alot cheaper...

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU! IT SOUNDS LIKE THE GUITARS WERE RECORDED IN A TIN CAN WHILE USING THE FACTORY PRESETS ON A POD!

The weird thing is that they all use Engl's which are amazing amps. Bad production on a decent album.

But did they ACCTUALY use them in the studio? Unfortunatly 99% of bands who record now use pods etc and digital plug ins to record. Its way easier and cheaper then live mic'n an amp, mainly cause the tone will be uniform through out the process so it's easier and cheaper to edit.

I'm not real familiar with that album but from the samples I just listened to I think the guitar tone has that classic At The Gates Slaughter of the Soul quality...not really sure what you're talking about. Doesn't sound tinny at all to me.

Bjork - Medulla
Tomahawk - Anonyomous
Faith No More - Everything
Bungle, Fantomas, everything Patton touches...midas, baby, MIDAS! Cuz he's our eras
Zappa! He can also do now wrong. Gotta have respect for artists who are pretty much of the mindset that, fuck it, I'll get behind the damned board and get what I want.

I beg to differ
the sound production on Introduce Yourselves and The Real Thing wasn't that great
however, the production on King for a Day, Fool For A Lifetime is real prime

I guess I should have specified, Patton, everything, not necessarily Faith No More. Can't really hold him responsible for all of FNM's production. King For A Day is just in heavy rotation for me right now......do now wrong? heehee...tit mouse.

My personal picks for best productions would be the following:

Carcass - Heartwork
Fear Factory - Demanufacture (Archetype definitely as honourable mention)
Demon Hunter - Summer of Darkness (best of all so far, all are amazing i think)
Filter - The Amalgamut
Orgy - Punkstatikparanoia
Celldweller - self titled
Zeromancer - ZZYZX
Living Sacrifice - Reborn

My two cents.

The best Produced album... I can honestly say only one does it for me.

Candlmass- Tales of Creation.  With haunting vocals, slow killer riffs that attack your cerebellum and an overall feel of doom, destruction an utter violence... Any metal fan has to get this on for his collection. My personal favorite album of all time

Others that have my seal of approval over the years are:

Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind
Testament - Practice what you Preach
Trouble - The Skull
Forbiddon - Forbiddon evil
Judas Priest - Defenders of the Faith
Any Slayer album
King Diamond - Them
Y. Malmsteen - Far beyond the sun
