    Ive been really digging the rythem tone on this album. It guitars sound "live" to me. Any idea how they recorded it. Seems like priest changed their tone every record, but I really like the tone on this one.

    Great example of the tone here.

    it SOUNDS like a set of 6 stacks cranked. However, I have recorded multiple stacks cranked and ususally it doesn't sound like mulitple stacks cranked.

    That was their 'vegas' era sound.
    in that time they had toured america a few times already and there was a famous piano player who use to run a recording studio at the edge of town in las vegas.
    he'd heard of them and secretly saw some performances across america while on tour himself. He knew they needed his help at the time.
    So he sent his hair dresser (undercover hitman) over to find the guys while on tour and get them in the studio.

    they agreed while they were in the area cause they too wanted to meet this famous piano player/studio mogal.
    they needed to get past the pick flamingos and the waterfalls, but when they did, they weren't disapointed.

    Liberace was all he was cracked up to be! he made that album sound SO great and he gave Rob the confidence to go for it! and not be shy.

    But sadly liberace health was on the slide and their tour schedual didn't conincide anymore so they never captured the magic again.
    and they got angry! real angry and it shows on the other albums.

    enjoy that! it was a great time in their lives. and they wont forget liberace ;)

    I agree with you!
    I think the best sound is from the track 'don't go'.
    that always sounds like MARSHALL.
    marshall and gibson. ;)

    do you have an amp that makes that sound?

    Check out their recent tone on Redeemer of Souls, some of the best I've heard from them:

    I hate the recorded mix on Sad Wings of Destiny.... The bass is burying the rhythm guitars on most of their songs.

    Hate the producer then Endgame. Sad Wings is among the strongest metal albums they did, Of course many others follow. Everyone has their favs.
    "Sin after Sin" didn't get much love except for Sinner. Simon Phillips made it one of the better albums for his work.
    Killing Machine and Stained Class are both classics as well. When you get to British Steel it is the most well known album and propelled them on to the radio:scratch: but it is softer of the first 6 studio recordings.:ugh:

    I loved the non conventional sound of Sad Wings. It was raw yet very clear and full of wonderful tones. The albums that followed all went for a more modern even recorded sounds with just about everything flat and in partial stereo mixdown.

    I agree somewhere production just killed the bass player in every single album.
    I remember Geddy Lee having a big in your face bass lines.
    I don't feel the rhythm's are to low.It seems the bass killing became a trend at some point.

    I dont care for that sound at all. That irst song reminded me of early 90s crate sound.

    I like this sound better. [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQhwPbRrIeo"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQhwPbRrIeo[/ame]

    Even this one sounds better [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5PuYIsKbe0"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5PuYIsKbe0[/ame]

    I actually like the mix on Rocka Rolla since the bass and rhythm blended and complement each other.... Sad Wings, however, is too boomy and KKs rhythm section is getting drowned out..

    Sounds like more pre-gain and less mids than previous albums
