You [email protected] guido,acolytee55,Vail...credits on the Redeemer Of Souls says the album was produced by MIKE EXETER & Glenn Tipton.
I think ROS production isnt as bad as many make it out to be.
Yet I have NEVER read 1 fucking bad word about Mike Exeter ?
It's all bitching about how Glenn should stay away from the production,blah blah blah...
How do they know it was GLENN who is ultimately responsible for the final sound? How do they it's not Mike Exeter who is the real reason behind the under par production?
They simply DON'T. They do not. I remember reading recently an article on Blabbermouth about Metallica's 1988 AJFA album and how for YEARS people complaining about the lack of the BASS sound on the album which was Jason Newsteads debut and blaming it on the producer (I cant remember his name off hand) but the producer said he got bashed for years for this... He said it WASN'T HIM who made the bass so non existant,it was LARS who demanded the bass be so low even though the producer thought he was crazy.
The producer said recently that this subject came up and Lars asked him why the bass was so low barely non existent,and he told Lars it was HIM lol
So for all we know it could have been Mike Exeter for the over all production sound,I mean sure it could be Glenn too,but we have to take consideration that Mike Exetor could be at fault,yet not one fucking comment about the production has his name mentioned? Not fair.
