The AC/DC original Albert masters are very good. I have both Australian pressings and WEA Canada and they are all good.
Thin metal recording layer coated from aqueous medium Document Type and Number:United States Patent 6132927 Link to this page:http://www.freepatentsonline.com/6132927.html Abstract:A process was disclosed for the preparation of a heat mode recording element comprising a transparent support and a thin metal recording layer, characterized in that said thin metal layer was formed by the following steps: (1) preparing a solution containing metal ions and preferably a binder, (2) reducing said metal ions by a reducing agent, (3) coating said aqueous medium on said transparent support, optionally after removal of superfluous salts.
The process disclosed is less complicated and more economic than previously known methods for applying a thin metal recording film.
YES - is pretty good...."Owner of a Lonely Heart". I agree with AC/DC. Metallica is awful compressed noise. Rush 2112 is not bad too as are Led Zep.
None of the responses so far even come close to "Metal". Try Testament The Gathering, Overkill The Years of Decay, Iron Maiden Brave New World, Judas Priest Sin After Sin, Screaming for Vengance, Scorpions World Wide Live, Tool Antything they have ever released. All on vinyl of course. The digitials are not bad but the wax rules. Listening to Ratt's Best OF 81 to 91 right now. Not all of us audio snobs have our heads up Diana Kralls backside although that Might be fun too.
"Not all of us audio snobs have our heads up Diana Kralls backside"
that might be tough to do some are pretty far up there...LOL...
Warlock-Burning the Witches
Dokken-Back for the Attack
Nice to see another metal fan on the gon!!
Megadeth - United Abominations. In fact, most of the Megadeth remasters are very good.
Hey metalheads, Skinny Puppy's The Process
might just blow all these outta the water.
check it out.
Industrial will never blow away The Priest!!!!! The Maiden!!! never happen...
Surprised no votes for Dream Theater yet. AC/DC is good as well.
Let's not forget an ultimate metal classic, Black Sabbath's Paranoid
Jorgeparrapuppgy - Love SP, saw the last two tours. Greater Wrong of the Right is oustanding though personally listen to more of the older material.
Another vote for Puppy here; industrial emerged out of the metal backwater and Puppy invented it (nods also to Einsterzende Neubaten) Also saw them for Last Rights and Greater Wrong.. tours.
Tool - any recording
Type O Negative - October Rust
Agalloch - any
Tiamat - Skeleton Skeletron
Moonspell - any
Theatre of Tragedy - Aegis
Black Sabbath - Sabotage (especially remastered on vinyl)
why has no one stated metallica's s&m? I know it is the beginning of the sold out stage but man the symphony just adds to the sheer power of the band. if you count screaming trees as metal then dust is a killer album
Try some of the remastered Deep Purple albums such as In Rock and Fireball..and if you have SACD, the Live in London release is spooky real....Gillan is practically dancing between your speakers.
Alice in Chains, Dream Theater, King Diamond, Prymus, Megadeth all have made some great souding albums.
All of these have been mentioned, and I will second (or third) the recommendations:
Tool - Lateralus (but any recording really)
AC/DC - Back in Black
Metallica - S&M
Sabbath on castle commuications...first four
Black Label Society- The Blessed Hellride and Hangover Music
Pantera- Cowboys from hell
ALL BLACK LABEL SOCIETY!!!
the new lacuna coil and anything by the band riverside is excellent. they both fall on the prog metal side but they rock.
obituary-cause of death
nuclear assualt-handle with care
overkill-the years of decay
my three favorites
Prong - Cleansing
Into Another - Ignaurus
Tool - Aenima
this is a trick question, right ;~)
Metalica, AC/DC are bands that I have listened to while sucking milk from Mothers' breasts. And I couldn't care less what the quality was like. Later, Pantera ruled.
I really love the last Iron Maiden album (A Matter of Life & Death), it has a great punchy sound - it's no small feat that my 2xLP sounds great even though it's pressed on picture disc.
The band decided against mastering it, and I think it paid off for them.
Black Sabbath, Masters of Reality is actually pretty well recorded album, but IMHO it sounds better a little rough through a lousy radio than it does through a high-end system. I mean, c'mon... Its Black Sabbath!
