I'm having some problems with clicks in the kick because of the Nebula's handling of transients with comps. I'm going to try making some changes recommended by AitB but will probably end up buying The Glue and getting it over with. In the meantime, I've pleased with this. CLC all over it along with CLeQ, MLeQ on guitars, Alex's analog panner, Snap Comp all over the place, and CDSoundmaster's VTMM2 on practically everything. Room of Life on the room mic, I used the 87. No R2R or TB+ this time around.

hahaha nice one Didn't like at first listen (just not my cup of tea I guess) but at a second glance I quite like it. Nice early Slayerish attitude, nothing wrong with the performance ! In my taste there could be more 50-Hz-action in the kickdrum compared to the thick 200Hz-density, but it definitely fits the style. Actually, this might be exactly what Metallica tried with St. Anger: It sounds very pissed of, raw, garage-y, unpolished, drums drowning etc, but it's very good sounding at the same time. They failed, you nailed it ! Thumbs up !
Haha! Maybe I'm just warped from listening to a lot of underground metal but to me, it sounds pretty polished and clean by those standards, not necessarily garage-y. Glad you like it though. I'm quite happy with it and can't wait to make some tweaks and get it mastered. Good ears on the kick, there's a HPF through the upper 50s to define it as much as possible. He plays very fast at some points so I was trying to get as much definition as possible. Still not quite happy with the result there.
