Yikes, I checked out the trailer for the second album and that snare drum is like St. Anger levels of bad. WTF?!?!? Not at all the same tone, but just as obnoxious. I'm down for melodeath if it's interesting enough though, so I guess I'll check out this trailer when it comes out.

Care to share? You made me curious, but I can't find it anywhere as of yet Big Grin

Oh you asked for it. This is a track off the second album. I've honestly heard bedroom black metal with better production than this.



On the bright side, I think the vocalist is pretty good and above average for this genre so there's at least some hope?

Oh the second album! Sorry, I misread your post Big Grin

But yeah... It's not quite as obnoxious as the 'St. Anger' snare, but it's pretty horrible. I am pleasantly surprised to actually hear the bass though. The composition isn't bad either.

I honestly couldn't bear to sit through the whole thing. Hearing the blastbeats made me feel suicidal, but the bits of the composition I heard seemed decent enough. They'd have to learn how to have a decent production first though.

Without exaggeration this still sounds roughly 10 times better/cleaner than that Yokosuka Saver Tiger compilation.

I don't think this Ares song is too bad in itself, but yeah, the production totally ruins it.

I think we can safely say this sounds better than that second album from a sonic perspective. It doesn't seem quite as compressed as some other Japanese melodeath releases either, though the blastbeat sections are exhausting to listen to.

Well yeah it sounds better than the second album, but the drums are still bad. Tongue
