I don't think it's compression.
From ToTG single I realized it's way too heavy on mid frequencies.
Mid frequencies mudden the sound, they make it more a wall of sound but way less defined.
The gear BG guys use also don't help.
The use EMG pickups on their guitars which are a bit muddy by nature, especially if Andrè now uses a 7 string.
They should have used Bare Knuckle, or Seymour Duncan pickups instead if they aimed for a modern sound and keeping their details and textures.
I also think they should drop Charlie Bauerfiend as a sound engineer.
Charlie is a great sound engineer and proved it on maaaaaaaaaaaaaany records, still he never really nailed the sound BG needed, and it's impressive that Flemming Rasmussen nailed the BG sound 20 years ago on Somewhere and Imaginations.
What often goes unnoticed is how important Marcus is in the economy of BG.
His rythmic precision, note attack, consistence and interesting voicing solutions is astonishing to say the least, he's a good 60% of BG sound live.
Charlie Bauerfiend's productions killed all the power and DRIVE Marcus brought to BG and that's a shame.

Flemming Rasmussen worked on Imaginations (production, including mixing/mastering) and on Nightfall (he did some mixing, recording and engineering. On that record there were a lot of people working. It was the first time Charlie Bauerfiend was in a BG production).

Somewhere Far Beyond was Kalle Trap only.

I preferred Flemming Rasmussen a lot, but i also have to say that Charlie did some great work on other albums (i.e. for Lingua Mortis Orchestra, Rage, Saxon, Helloween). I guess that's how BG want to sound today, let's face it.


ah and btw those coloured vinyl madness of 'Beyond the Red mirror' is continueing:
now there is:
- red
- blue
- black
- picture
- splatter
- gold (silver costumers only, NB)
- silver (EMP only)
- orange
- purple
- white
- yellow

well i guess even i won't buy all.... :mrgreen:

That's exactly the point.
Charlie is a friggin' competent sound engineer, but with BG the sound he "forges" hasn't the drive it should, especially in regards to Marcus' guitars.
It lacks the groove BG have live.
Marcus live is a machine gun, you don't even hear the touch of the guitar pick on the strings, you just hear the note clean and powerful.
In BG you often listen to Andrè's cool leads but Marcus' guitar work is essential and it should need to be more in front in the studio production.

I would have gladly forked the money for that version if the CD would have had Doom.

I will buy both, that's the only positive reason for their 4 years releasing politics, you don't spend so much money every year ;)
Maybe Doom can be bought sperately (i guess later on a second single) or as mp3

Yeah, but in the last video they wished us Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year which was obvious that they won't publish something new till 2015...
But the good fact is that there're at least 3 more trailer+samples of the songs, which makes me think that once we cross the new year, the're will be no empty Friday ;)

Especially considering that the rouble has suffered a terrible downfall in the recent weeks and has just begun to rehabilitate itself; this financial catastrophe caused the prices to rise almost to the double value, while 1 euro used to be worth about 40-45 Russian roubles it skyrocketed up to 90-110 roubles a couple of weeks ago I guess. That means that the price for the earbook, for example, has also risen dramatically...

I also hoped for a fresh studio trailer, but it's OK - everyone has a right on free holidays :).

Marcus parts aren't that hard to play, Feanor is a little tricky here and there but they never played that song live. He's tight as hell and has the best stage presence in the band, but apart from that.

By the way, samples of the last album were revealed earlier than a month before the actual ATEOT release date. This has me thinking that they should be available pretty soon unless Nuclear Blast has decided to skip that this time around.

The samples - 1st or 2nd January almost for sure!!! If they'll release them that's just the perfect moment...even the fact that this time I'll try my best to not listen them! :)

Me, too. I want to preserve that feeling of novelty and exciting freshness until I get my hands on the new album. I wish I could refrain from pre-listening to the album's bits and pieces. It may sound bizarre, but I'll be more interested in people's opinions about the samples if they ever get unveiled.

Listen to Imagination Through The Looking Glass on a good audio system at high volume.
You can definitely hear how Andrè muddens the rhythm tightness when he doubles Marcus.
If you're a guitarist as I understand, you can really hear how Andrè has a worse alternate picking technique than Marcus.
I never said Marcus plays difficult parts (as neither does Andrè), but how he plays them makes the difference.
Then, hey, it works and I like BG for their music and I don't expect to listen to technical death metal, but having Marcus more in the listener's face can only do good.
Go listen to Tales and Somewhere and listen how much more powerful they sounded even without tons of overdubs.
And that, sir, is Marcus' work.

Marcus is a beast for sure and he shines during André's solos too, but I don't hear anything especial in the new songs in terms of riffs. What he plays isn't that remarkable to be honest and André's stuff is also uninspired.

Oh yeah, we surely agree 100% on this.
There are loads of recycled patterns on different keys.
And that's why I miss Thomen so much, since I thinkk he was the reality check guy.

That's why I'm in doubts. "Doom" being that long would practically justify the earbook edition spread over two CDs.

"Equally enchanting is "At the Edge of Time", which keeps a frolicking back beat and spritely orchestral accompaniment behind Frederik Ehmke's gradual stamp"

Unless they achieved that in only 50 seconds, I guess no, At the Edge of Time is not as "long" as listed on LastFm.
"There's a time when a man needs to fight and a time when he needs to accept that his destiny's lost, the ship has sailed and that only a fool will continue. The truth is I've always been a fool"
~~~~~~~~~~~~
A slight call afar is tempting me, like a whisper sweet or an awful scream; I cannot ignore what I've always been, I'm leaving again - one last time? in my little kingdom I can be what I really wanted to be... The wanderer

bard_92, keep in mind that it's not confirmed yet. It is indeed strange that a bonus track is that long, but I personally wish it was :).

And a sweet little interview with Hansi where he, among other things, tells a story behind one of the new songs:

Nobody will ever let you know
When you ask the reasons why,
They just tell you that you're on your own,
Fill your head all full of lies

Yes, it's a little strange to me too, for example what might be the connection between the Holy Grail and King Arthur and the Last Supper :/ But who knows, it might be awesome :)

The concept of mixing existing fantasy novels was already lightly performed in the song "IFTOS".
If this is Hansi's definition of "Fantasy" then it's totally fine for me. He's the mastermind and I fully trust in his vision.

Yes, you're right! And I have to agree that I like the idea for The Grail and The Last Supper :)

Yeah, and this part seems to focus more on faster songs. I like everything I've heard so far!
