How do others' copies of this tape sound? I have the earlier light green label version, and everything looks very legit. The material is muffled in places, recording level is really low. It could be due to the fact that it was recorded live with alot of headroom, and if thats the case then that's fine-- I'm just curious if all them sound like this, all the other Nekrophile tapes I have are way louder
