Probably two of my favortie recording styles of all time are Led Zeppelin's "II" and "IV" albums and "The End of Heartache" (Killswitch Engage) and "The Oncoming Storm" (Unearth), both produced by Adam Dutkiewicz. I have a few questions regarding them: 1. Regarding II and IV, what techniques were used in recording and mixing/producing and what were they recorded on? They are honestly my favorite sound drums for anything not metal. 2. Regarding the Adam Dutkiewicz albums: How does he get such a full guitar guitar sound? Granted that TEoH was a bit more compressed and TOS was more raw/raunchy sounding, in both albums the guitar sound is beautifully put together. Does anybody have any insight to the techniques used to record these guitar tracks? Please keep this a flame free topic. My music passions may not match that of yours. If so, keep to the rule of, "If you do not have anything nice to say, do not say anything at all." I say this merely because I see far too many people bashing metal and the recording thereof all too often. I hope to hear some responses soon. Thanks everybody!
