listening now, sounds great. bottom end is fat. no background noise. as far as low volume, some of these recent represses are long albums on 1 record, so they have to lower it some to keep it sounding decent. just turn it up.

I don’t recall anything amazing or great about this pressing. It’s ok but it’s not worth a ton.

I just got around to checking reviews here. I have this pressing and mine sounds excellent. The only thing I notice is the bottom end just needs like 2 db of boost. I have an eq system that I can save profiles to and one is set for just this case. I find lots of pressings from the 60s to now that are mastered with low bottom and sometimes low top end too. I clean my records, even brand new ones, before I give them a first spin on my system. Sometimes even new records can have leftover release agent from the press. I had a GnR reissue that was bad with this and it took 4 good cleanings on my record cleaning machine. One pass, I had to manual clean first by scrubbing back and forth, not heavy pressure, just to make sure the fine bristles got in the groove well and cut the stuff loose.

It's not the greatest pressing by any means, I do however thing this one sounds better than the 2017 Metal Blade reissue of "Low", that one sounded real bad.

I don't know if any of you listened to this reissue, but it sounds terrible. Loud backround noise and static in between songs. Most disappointing reissue I have heard to date. One of the best Testament albums ever, and they give it the worst pressed reissue ever. Does not make sense... please let me know if any of you get this record and experience what I did.
