Remastered Reissues

RE-MASTERED WORTHLESSLY

The remastering of the original sound in the reissues of  Extreme Metal Music genres(Thrash / Death / Grindcore / Black Metal ) seems to have done more damage than enhancing it, resulting in the loss of the primal rawness that characterizes the genre.
In my opinion the production values of the original recordings are valid and should be kept as it is.

RE-MASTERED IN PIECES (R.I.P)

The reissues tend to have been treated to a cleaner and louder sound in line with the contemporary thinking that the louder it is the better it is.
Although this process could work for commercial music as it relays on public broadcasting (Radio, T.V,…) to seduce mass consumption markets, it actually distorts the original sound recording of the Extreme Music Genre, hence, destroying to some extent the unique atmosphere inherent to it.
