Part Entombed’s metal pedal underwater gurgling guitar tone and Embalmer’s hi hat based blast beats and general production/mix. The Philippines is a hotbed of extreme metal sounds and I’m hoping there is an upgrade in recording equipment soon (or a decrease in the price of recording in the Philippines). There’s a ton of good music there that hasn’t harnessed their sound properly on a recording. Maybe I just haven’t come across it yet. Pathogen is lightning fast and have awesome riffs, but they don’t have the punch you would hear in a live setting, even when I adjust the bass and mids.
