« The Atrocity Reports » was mastered in two different ways : the standard version (you can listen to on CD and all the streaming services as Spotify, ITunes, Deezer etc.) and an alternate version especially made for Vinyl. CDs and Vinyls are two very different formats, so they must have different mastering to suit their own particularities. We decided to put online now the Vinyl version.
Let’s get to the point : we wanted the standard mastering to be “loud”, and more aggressive with more sharp, piercing high frequencies, and tighter low end. For the Vinyl Version, the mastering was made to really highlights the mixes and its dynamics, depending on how Vinyl can handle the really extreme frequencies we have on “The Atrocity Reports”, without focusing too much on how “loud” the songs are.
The differences are very subtle depending on what equipment you use to listen music, though.
It’s up to you to decide which version of the mastering you prefer : in no way, one is inferior to the other. Each version was mastered to sound at its very best depending on the format.
