Re: 'BEYOND THE RED MIRROR'- Your Reviews

It's difficult for me because these two opinions are changing constantly in me: --#1-- (While I'm listening to the album:) Wow! Great, modern, new tune, I've never heard this sound before from any other bands/albums. Listening to the whole album is like watching an epic movie. --#2-- (When I'm not l...

Re: production of albums old and new

In the making-of videos of ATEOT the band told us that we can hear only the natural recorded sound of the drums. André said that this way guitars also sound better. Well, guitars may sound better than on ATITM but I really don't like the drums. I mean, listen to this Savage Circus track with Thomen ...

Yes I agree their logo is "strong like balls of steel" as well as their name, but it does convey a very specific niche, it mainly fits for the earlier recordings.
