Henkka Blacksmith of Children Of Bodom discussed I Worship Chaos

Atheist – Unquestionable Presence (Remastered -2015)

Layout 1

Everyone has been saying Atheist’s classic album Unquestionable Presence should be remastered. This year that gift was brought to us! The groundbreaking album was recorded at Morrisound Studios in Tampa, Florida in 1991. The 2015 remastered edition was done at Pain Cave. As an old school death metal, I’m an elitist with remastering albums; something about the coarse and grindy production makes for a more solid atmosphere. But Unquestionable Presence is an album that needed to be remastered. With so much depth and complexity, only modern technology would have been able to make every note and time signature change be prevalent. In short, this was an album written ahead of its time so it needs to be recorded for its time. Read the rest of this entry »

Huntress – Static (2015)
