DARKTHRONE / Under a Funeral Moon (1993)
I've known people who attempted to ‘correct’ the abysmal lo-fi production by tinkering with the bass equalizer on their amp. They only succeeded in burying the coldness under a monotonous booming drone. It’s supposed to sound like it does, so accept it. Strangely, the drop in production made the recording sound less hurried, and enabled the individual parts to be more easily picked out.
