|Splitter – En sorglig historia CD
Label: Obscene Productions
In all honesty I’m a little bit disappointed by this CD. I love the two older recordings by Splitter, and so I was expecting this to be even more ear-bleeding since it’s recorded in the renowned Studio Fredman (At The Gates, Opeth, Haunted, Lord Belial etc etc). And I absolutely adore the thick and full sound that both Driller Killer and Wolfpack have experienced in the very same studio. But the sound on En Sorglig Historia bugs me… The vocals are too low in the mix, which doesn’t let the full brutality of Thalberg’s bone-shattering shrieks shine through. And the drums can sometimes just be a murky banging in the background.
