Hi all,

I'm in a band who are looking for a good place to get some tracks master.

The style is technical, metal-punk crossover stuff (can be heard at https://drivetimecommute.bandcamp.com/). Previously, we've gone with Howie Weinberg in America who is terribly famous but who slams the tracks really hard in terms of loudness and compression. All the seperation of the tracks gets lost and it makes me sad.

I know that the usual state of affairs regarding metal and similar music is to have everything compressed and gated and mechanical but we don't want that this time.

Can anyone recommend a good engineer or studio that will do a more minimal/traditional mastering job for us (i.e. deal with the big transients that will pull the volume of the whole track down)?

Thanks!

Adam Dempsey at Deluxe Mastering is great to work with and sensitive to all forms of music.
