Pretty much anything Reuben/Jamie Lenman will do. The album below as a double disc masterpiece of both soft and hardcore songs.

Kikuohana's "Dai Ichi Maku".
Kikuo's a master at mastering. Sound stage and quality are excellently done; every instrument is clear and crisp.

Songs of Distant Earth

this but remain in light
>>
>song start with a lush clean guitar playing arpeggios ranging for the lowest notes to the highest, and soft calming vocals
>gradually rises in intensity
>suddenly, a low chugging bass, orchestra, and drums kick in
>progresses into some ambient electronic music
>adds layers and layers of sounds until it's frantic screaming metal
>you're not even half way through the song yet
>ends with some circus music

So remind me why you're not using Devin Townsend as the default tester?
>>
>>61883038
This thread actually isn't cancer.

Devin Townsend, pendulum, animals as leaders, someone making fun of death magnetic...

You listened. All is well father.
