A couple of years ago they reissued the first few Deftones albums remastered and some tracks even have extra elements not found on the original releases, but HOLY FUCK these remasters are terrible sounding! They're brickwalled and blasted out to shit and absolutely grating on the ears. I can't believe they fucked them up this bad. Just avoid them at all costs. I really hope they didn't replace the original masters with the remasters on streaming services. I wish they would just remove them altogether and just let the originals be or get someone who knows what they're doing to remaster them.

and Minerva...

original 16 bit master on top
24 bit hi-res remaster on bottom



Yea, their albums were always loud, but you still saw the details in the waveform even at the loudest parts. With the remasters, they're all gone. It's just a solid blue brick. Disappointing.

Adrenaline, Around The Fur, White Pony, Deftones, Saturday Night Wrist, Diamond Eyes 24 bit hi-res remasters are all brickwalled.

Listening to s/t on vinyl right now and I’d sort of forgotten what a beast of a song battle axe is. One of chino’s best vocal performances. Which is saying a lot.

Sorry, I wasn't writing as you were doubting me. I was coming more from a lighthearted, two dudes smoking a joint, being like maaaaan, did you see this shit? Just two fans who like Deftones. So my bad.

These are 24 bit lossless remasters for sale as digital downloads, not from a streaming source. They were released around when Gore came out, I believe.

I don't know which masters they use for streaming services as I absolutely hate streaming services. I am all about 16/24 bit downloads or physical music. I hate, hate, HATE lossy compression and streaming services do some atrocious shit to audio quality.

See, I believe you can. I believe many people can if they know what to look for. I've had many folks who were like, "I don't know, man. I don't hear a difference," but then I A/B some stuff and explain what to focus on and look for and they pick up on it. It's one of those moments, once you hear it, you can't unhear it. I know a few folk who converted to lossless and hunting specific masters after they picked up on what lossy compression and a blown out master does to music and how it can be fatiguing to the ears.

This was an eye opening video if you want to see what streaming services do to music...
