OMG! Mikael Stanne from Dark Tranquillity brought me here. Thank you for discovering this amazing band, Mikael. I am exploring the new selftitled album and it's already so diverse, atmospheric and beautiful.
I like this band but I feel the production or mixing of their latest two albums is bad, both vocals sound too echoed (most notorious in The Banished Heart) plus I feel they use too much the blast beats, making the songs too repetitive and sometimes boring. My favourite album is still Winter
The vocals area touch too high in the mix, and aside from some blastbeats, they've really paired down the technicality on this album, and there's much less focus on the instrumentals.
But nitpicks aside, it's just phenomenal.
