ENO PRESENTS “KLANG”
THE FASCINATION FOR
QUALITY SOUND Only jesting. If you only knew. Hello! As far as I’m concerned,
there was no bad drum sound quality- -in the 70s. Contemporary drum sound
began with gating the snare drum. Usually it sounds like: Or… It’s not supposed to sound like: We’ve named it “stadium-rock”. They managed without that crap
in the 70s. Photoshop bugs me.
This is a record from around 1981. Look how messy that is.
And that was before Photoshop. No one does mess like that now. It sounded like… This is how the bass drum sounds. It’s painful!
It hurts when people don’t get it. It’s like morons coming to a party.
It makes you want to leave. Excellent. Here we go… No Photoshop on this one. Look at it!
Do you recognize the lines? He got famous later for
his designs for Metallica. It’s best to live in a nice building
and have your view be an ugly one. This one is wicked. This inspired the mascot
on our last three albums. It’s from Canada, recorded in 1986. Its bass drum sound is killer. The guitars play continuously, so
every time the bass and snare drum… There’s a lot of bass
in the snare drum as well. It’s like the drums make dents
in the guitar sound. Like this… Everything shakes.
It makes a brutal and nice sound. There. -Hi.
-Hello. Pink Floyd.
Fantastic bass drum, actually. Loads of people
could learn from them. Cutting straight across without
looking, asking for a spanking. There’s one rhythm that
metalpeople should avoid. But the temptation is great. And then someone
plays this on the ride… This is while
the bass and snare drum goes… And then they play…. I’ve done it too in the studio. What does that do?
You put Hello Kitty into your sound- -when you play that. It’s atrocious. But a shitload of people do it.
Some people never learn. It doesn’t exactly make it hard. Oh, difficult. Let’s see… There. In the 80s, the big thing was- -to copy the feel of the stadium
on each and every album. They always had this…
And gating the snare drum. Shit sped up in metal after a while. The drummer works his ass off
and plays complicated stuff. “Everything I do on the drums
has to be heard.” No one wanted
to take one for the team. “If you still want bass in your bass
drum, you’ll only hear rumbling.” “Remove the bass in the bass drum,
then you’ll just hear clicking!” Oh, no. That’s when
it started to go downhill. It started in 1986 – 1987
and then just snowballed. I hate that. With a vengeance. There’s nothing I hate more. Just put bass in the bass drum,
don’t be a fucking idiot. Subtitles – GURI FODSTAD KRISTIANSEN
