Also, on the remaster the drums have been redone with the drumkit from hell. Which was sampled on Tomas' kit so it doesn't make much of a difference. The original was recorded on 7-string guitars but the songs were written for 8-strings; they were on a rush to release the album before Ozzfest 2002 and they didn't receive the guitars on time for recording. The mix and mastering was done in the timespan of about 4 days (I think) on the original because of the deadline; one could imagine how much sleep they had in these 4 days... The remaster was recorded on 8-strings.
The original is more raw and has a unique sound that is not found on other Meshuggah albums. The remaster sounds more like what they've released recently. (I, Catch 33, ObZen)
