The Top 5 Producers in Heavy Metal
2/9/2011 1:41:26 PM by Eric

In the busy metal community, innovation is often hard to come by. With so many acts looking to "reimagine" the 70s and 80s it becomes increasingly difficult to sort one from the other. In the past month, I have heard twenty thrash bands that could be the next Exodus or Overkill and have borrowed enough riffs to claim the throne. How do we sort one from the other?  Often it comes down to production values and the importance of modern technology.  If you have the cash and label support then my Top 5 Producers could set you apart from the pack:

1. Tue Madsen - Antfarm Studios.  Bands: Moonspell, The Haunted, Ektomorf, Dark Tranquility, Mnemic

2. Andy Sneap - Backstage Studios.  Bands: Accept, Exodus, Megadeath, Nevermore, Arch Enemy, Machine Head, Masterplan

3. Jacob Hansen - Hansen Studios.  Bands: Communic, Volbeat, Mercenary, Pyramaze, Tyr

4. Fredrick Nordstrom - Studio Fredman.  Bands: In Flames, At the Gates, Hammerfall, Opeth, Soilwork, Dream Evil

5. Peter Tagtgren - The Abyss.  Bands: Overkill, Sabaton, Marduk, Immortal, Dark Funeral, Children of Bodom
