Biomechanical - Cannibalised faulty sound of CD?
Question: Hi there, first of all I\'d like to congratulate you guys for pleasing our ears with such great artists. The reason I\'m writing to you is in regards of something that\'s got me really worried, otherwise I wouldn\'t be writing to you at all since I don\'t tend to do this kind of stuff. The thing is that I bought Biomechanical\'s Cannibalised (love the band) when it came out (I\'m from P.R. so had to go to the hassle of ordering it) and I was just wondering if you guys have had any kind of complaintabout this album because the production is really really bad and the music can\'t be understood at all, I\'ve read about this on some reviews posted on the net and most people are complaining about the same matter. I\'d just like to know if there\'s any plans of remastering the album because I\'m dying to listen to the new music. I\'ll be honest, can\'t even understand the guitars let alone the voice, can\'t even tell what notes they are in, specially John K\'s.
Please, if there\'s anything that can be done with this matter I\'d really appreciate it as well as many (heard of some people downloading instead of buying because of this matter just to take the taste of the music)other Biomechanical fans.
Thanks a lot, G. From: email@example.com
Answer: Ahhh bless your delicate ears..this is intense extreme modern heavy metal so better get used to it bro! We know what you mean but there is no plans to remaster the CD, it sounds as the band wishes it to be...Cannibalised is a highly futuristic, almost experimental, extreme listening album!We even had a warning on the promo CD so that journalists would realise its MEANT to sound that way, the album is called Cannibalised after all- slow ballads would not suit the concept.Biomechanical are a different animal on this album than on previous Cd's- i'd term them extreme heavy metal.The CD is not faulty, its produced by the band, mixed by Chris Tsangarides (Judas priest) and mastered by a top london mastering house, who did Sex Pistols, The Who etc.The mainman John K wanted it to sound agressive and angry and also to have cinematic, orchestral parts which the band are famous for aswell, tho those parts are in short supply, i agree,...I'm sorry if you were not expecting this type of sound from the band.The label was also shocked when they delivered the CD, but on repeated plays the picture becomes clearer and the frantic million mile an hour riffing begins to make sense.
