Over the past decade many rock/metal albums have suffered from increasing levels of loudness to stand out from others.
(2nd Petition on loudness war)
website for info on the loudness war
Most recently Metallica newest album Death Magnetic has become the worst victim of this war. A petition on this site was created to try and get Metallica to remaster the record after a rip from Guitar Hero III showed how bad the problem was. So far that request has fallen on deaf ears.
Other Records ruin by the Loudness War
Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stadium Arcadium - Red Hot Chili Peppers
Vapor Trails - Rush
One By One - Foo Fighters
A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay
Decemberunderground - AFI
Pearl Jam - Pearl Jam
All Iron Maiden Remastered Studio Albums
Velvet Revolver - Liberated
Britney Spears - Womanizer (Song)
This petition is to show that we as music fans want future records not to suffer from this problem.
So sign this and show artists, record labels, producers, enginers, mixers, and masterers who support the loudness war and continue to ruin records like Death Magnetic that we have had enough.
The Stop the Loudness War petition to Music Industry was written by John Doe and is in the category Music at GoPetition.
