19:59 - Jaeryd But yeah, there's nothing I'd change about the sound/production on The Desanctification or Cosmosophy.
19:57 - Jaeryd I also prefer the sound of TWWTG and MoRT, but the 777s had a distinctive sound that I think worked for the trilogy, and did exactly what it was supposed to do. I might've preferred Sect(s) to have a different sound, though...
19:53 - !J.O.O.E.! I feel like both sides are let down by sound and production issues. A recurring motif ever since the 777s (The Libers aside; they sound awesome)
19:46 - 3rdWorld What? Its no way that good but quite decent. But the Aevangelist side just sucks. I can't stand it at all.
18:55 - Apothecary Will investigate more. And damn, the BAN side of their new split is really turning about to be the pleasant surprise of the year for me. Might be just me, but I really think it's their best since Liber III, at least
