Their new label is called Blackened Recordings. Since they now have the masters for their recordings, I wouldn't be surprised if they end up releasing remastered versions of their older work.

Remastered CDs of their old albums were put out in like '94 or something and they sound fine. They're the CDs everybody owns.

Really? I thought none of their CDs had ever been remastered; huh.

All of the albums (dunno about Kill 'Em All, but the next three say this) have a "Remastered by" credit either in the booklet or on the back of the case, and whoever was responsible did a nice job of it. I don't have any of the original CDs so I can't compare, but CDs in the '80s were generally mastered pretty poorly, supposedly due to fear of wrecking sound equipment/speakers since CDs were fairly new, so levels were mixed pretty low.

I think they remastered all of their albums pretty recently as well.

Hmm, I'd never heard that before about older CDs but that sounds plausible. I do generally try to avoid getting older releases of albums because the sound levels are often ridiculously quiet; especially compared to most CDs released in the past 15+ years Tongue

'Course, a lot of CDs now are mixed/mastered real shittily with that whole "loudness war" thing. I'll take a CD that's too quiet and with dynamics that are a little flat over something that clips, blows your ears out, and has no dynamics whatsoever.

I think the "remastered by" on the CDs just refers to the conversion from Tape/Vinyl to CD. You can't slap sound that was mastered for vinyl onto a CD. It won't sound right.

It's only mentioned on the '95 reprints though. Discogs lists them as being remastered, and usually info like that for popular releases doesn't stay on the page long if it's false/unconfirmed.

I'm oldschool and was listening to Metallica pre-95, so I guess I grew up on all of the original masters. Not that I can remember enough to tell the difference, though.
