Pretty much agreed. There is a reason why a lot of "classic" black metal sounds the way it does, they weren't exactly the richest people ever. Now it's like black metal bands get signed to labels. They could have a decent production but want to sound DIY prob to keep the "trve" black metal spirit. It's all a joke. If you want to pump out a lo-fi record DO IT YOURSELF!!!
