The first album is more straight ahead thrash metal, but both are fantastic and I am trying to track the original cd releases down (remastered cds are always put through a limiter and dynamics smashed) and not have to pay stupid prices for them.

Hey RG (remastered cds are always put through a limiter and dynamics smashed), interesting, that's not been my experience but then that's been with older stuff I spose e.g. all the Deep Purple 50th anniversary re-masters (and sometimes re-mixes ala Machine Head where you get a remastered CD and a remixed CD, the remix is awesome but they should have kept the original smoke on the water solo :( ) have always been much better than the original (mostly vinyl  ::) ).  Maybe they get fixated on the "gotta make it the loudest out there" syndrome (which IIRC is a bug bear of yours as well as mine).

Strange, how old are these re-mastered versions?

Most albums these days never mind re-masters are producing almost square wav forms, certainly in the kind of music I listen too anyways.  It's all thanks to the loudness wars, it's totally bullshit.

Hey RG, they are pretty old, certainly mostly before the "loudness wars".  Most are CDs of LPs I have which I've picked up over the years as I no longer have a record player.  Most of them are just CDs made from the original master tapes so minus the jiggery pokery that gets applied when cutting to wax or whatever to make a vinyl record due to its limitations. Some of them have a couple of remixed tracks or previously unreleased songs that didn't fit the 10 song limit for a record, or alternate versions.  But when you check the wav forms they are (mostly) well within the dynamic range, as are all the mixes I've done of my own stuff.
