Maybe a bit more over the top like you say so perhaps Midnight is the best comparison. I haven't listened that much to Solar Eagle to be honest as I tend to listen to proper records and cd's that I actually own all the time and I don't have the EP (too expensive) but I've liked what I've heard. I look forward to this release. Who knows, maybe the vocals will get on my nerves after a while of close listening.ION BRITTON wrote:To me he sounds like an over the top mixture of John Cyriis and Syrus' vocalist - enough to make me cringe every time he goes wild over the mic, despite the band's intricate songwriting. No Tate or Mallicoat vocal style here I'm afraid, much less a Steve Benito one.
Exactly. I would be interested in a vinyl reissue but if it sounds like Taist of Iron, then you better stick to 192k mp3.doomedplanet wrote:Pity on the SA Slayer as the vinyl sounds great. This label screwed up the sound on Taist of Iron release too. I hear that also they reprinted the Robespierre cover art without getting permission from the owner. Seems this label has some serious issues, "watch out, buyer beware" I guess should be the byword....

We saw a discussion about our releases on The Corroseum forum - which is respected by both us, and our followers - so to cut the speculations and rumors about Skol Records:
- Yes, we realize some of our releases doesn't sound perfect, but we do the best we can with those sometimes 30 years old tapes, and we always work with audio masters delivered by bands.
- There was no "issue" and no "problem" with the Robespierre CD artwork. It was licensed to us by its author and legal owner, the great Andrei Bouzikov.
And before someone smart will decide to start another rumor: all our releases are legal and made in cooperation with the bands. We indeed had offers to release someone's material and we were contacted by people, who told us they own someone's else materials. But in such case we are never interested, as being fair with bands, is the highest priority for us. Hail Metal!
well I think both the editions of the Taist Of Iron CD out for Skol Rec have a accessible sound, not perfect, in any way it depends on your own taste my friend, I've got tons of bootlegs, reissues, cdr... etc and often they are sold with a even worse sound than the Skol Rec Cds indeed, I respect your ideasdoomedplanet wrote:You like the sound of Taist of Iron cd?? Because it is utter shit. I sent the vocalist a vinyl rip back in the 90's and it sounds waaaay better than this cd they released. no one compares to some modern production
The last sentence is really dumb.In another words they say : It's poor sound ,but we have nothing to do with it.Ha,ha.Once again there are rumors on a forum that we respect, that we used mp3 files as masters and normalization instead of proper remastering on some of our releases. Well, this picture sum up opinion of the entire Skol Records crew - plus we kindly remind you, that this is why we put together our Soundcloud page: to let people listen our releases before they will buy them.
