Best Metal Music Producers
The Top Ten
He's worked with the best bands in Sweden and around there. He's worked with Arch Enemy, In Flames, Dimmu Borgir, and Opeth to name a few.
I really enjoy a lot of the records he's produced. He's worked with lots of great metal bands like Trivium, All That Remains, The Black Dahlia Murder, and Deicide.
Pantera. That is all.
Work on Bring Me The Horizon is awesome
Sempiternal (BMTH), Cowboys and Vulgar (PANTERA), Around the Fur and White Poney (DEFTONES), Louder than Love (SOUNDGARDEN), Significant Other and Chocolate Starfish (LIMP BIZKIT), Repentless (SLAYER), Wait and Bleed (SLIPKNOT), Prephecy (SOULFLY), Unnatural Selection (HAVOK)...
Underrated And Rock isn't His Major
I like some of the AC/DC songs
He's best known for his work with Slayer but he's worked with many other great bands like System of a Down, Danzig, AC/DC, Nine Inch Nails, and even some hip-hop artists like Public Enemy and LL Cool J.
Done work with some of the best up-and-coming metalcore bands. He's produced for Killswitch Engage (obviously), Parkway Drive, The Acacia Strain, All That Remains, Shadows Fall, Unearth, and so on.
Smartest bastard alive
Must be in the top 3. Rising, Heaven and Hell, Machine Head, and Piece of Mind all have the best sound.
Machine Head, Heaven and Hell, The Number of the Beast, Rainbow Rising,
Need more? The Mob Rules, Long Live Rock 'n' Roll, Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow, Made In Japan, all Maiden albums (1981-1992), Deep Purple In Rock, Fireball, Burn. Excellent producer.
Simply the best, #1
The one and only...the best of 80s is PIECE OF MIND...Andy Sneap said that
Produced Metallica's Ride The Lightning, Master Of Puppets, and... And Justice For All. He also produced Morbid Angel's Covenant.
Superb work with Metallica, and then broke all records (in my opinion) with By Inheritance.
Why Flemming Rasmussen isn't higher on this list is beyond me
He's amazing and I made a list about him - Top 10 Music Albums Recorded, Mixed or Produced by Flemming Rasmussen.
Metallica - Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets,...And Justice for All (besides, he mixed Garage Inc.)
Blind Guardian - Nightfall in Middle-Earth, Imaginations From The Other Side
Artillery - By Inheritance
Morbid Angel - Covenant
Rainbow - Bent Out of Shape, Difficult to Cure
... and more.
I like the way his albums sound. The drums especially, they sound really punchy. But anyway, he's worked with bands like Oceano, Miss May I and The Devil Wears Prada. I'm not a fan of his work with Asking Alexandria or any of those other bands, but his albums sound really good regardless.
He's a prodigy. He's very much further ahead than most people in the genre. Love his work with Asking Alexandria!
I believe he works with Suecof. He's worked with my 2 favorite deathcore bands, Whitechapel and Carnifex. He's also worked with Deicide, Dååth, God Forbid, and others.
Not much is really known of him other than he's worked with the likes of Lamb of God, Suicide Silence, and Miss May I
A true legend. One of those who pushed metal production forward and whose legacy can be heard in many modern death metal producers' sound.
Produced albums by Cannibal Corpse, Death, Napalm Death, Suffocation, Obituary, Sepultura etc. He knows how to make it sound heavy
The best and legendary Death Metal producers.
True death metal king
He's produced with some of the finest metal bands out there, including Sepultura, Soulfly, Slipknot, Machine Head and Korn.
Korn, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot, Deftones, Sepultura, Soulfly, Machine Head and Fear Factory...
What is Andy Sneap doing below the Top 10? Sharpest producer in the biz in my opinion.
I like his preset on metal foundry and the quality control he has on the records
We want him for one maiden album
A true pioneer of the genre, deserves to feature at least in the top 3.. Every one of his records sound amazing, and completely individual.
Produced great albums with the likes of Machine Head, Bullet for My Valentine, Carcass, and Trivium.
One of, if not the best metal(core) producer, Rise To Remain, Trivium, Bullet...
Is a self-taught producer from Bethesda, Massachusetts. He has produced his own band Periphery, Haunted Shores, and even the technically acclaimed guitarist Tosin Abasi.
Nothing more legendary than early 90's Metallica
Has a really fine balance between the record sounding too sterile (hello, Andy Sneap) and too raw and underproduced. His work on Cannibal Corpse and Hate Eternal albums is simply flawless.
Just keeps popping up on great records. Some of best modern metal came straight from Planet Z!
Produced some great albums in recent years and plays in a great band
