Plenty old metal is thin as ****, which kinda goes against the whole point.

Growls can sound good, but I often find it annoying.
Like I've probably mentioned a few times before in here, and despite my complaints about growling and screaming in metal, I'm a big fan of Nile.
I find that the guitars and growls generally don't get in the way of each other on their albums.

Mixing extreme metal is no doubt tricky.

The more it tries to sound heavy, the more I'd perhaps agree. Death metal with no bass is just tame.

The Fox is not a great song, much less the opener to this great record.
