Second best also for me, after North From Here.
I always get skeptical when I read the word remastered. Maybe because I don't fully understand what it means hehehe...
Here's once again the only picture I have left from their gig (together with Lubricunt & Morningstar) from 1994. Too bad the only thing I remember from the gig is Lubricunt's version of Ace Of Spades.

The main thing done in most remastering is to find the best possible audio source and bring it up closer to modern specs as far as volume. So compression, normalization, and maybe hard limiting are done. EQ may also be done to improve sound quality, depending on what they're sourcing from. If they don't overdo it, the new master should sound about like the original audio source but clearer and louder. If they do overdo it, it will sound too compressed, mushy, and bad.

Some remastering may also involve actual audio clean-up, like using software to remove hiss, crackle, glitches in the master audio, etc. Small labels don't do this too much in my experience. This can also be beneficial if done with a subtle touch and good software. If overdone this can ruin a recording almost as badly as over-compressing... maybe even worse, since it can seriously alter the frequencies and other key components of the sound. Bad noise removal can make a song sound like total crap.

Generally the word "remastered" doesn't scare me at all, because it really doesn't mean that much, especially coming from a small label who really just wants to give it a boost of a few decibels. But very rarely someone will do a real hack job on an album, which is unfortunate.

Thanks for shedding some light.
I guess with this reissue, as it also contains demo tracks, it might make sense to do something. The original Dances From The Left is one of the best also when it comes to sounds, so that's why I'm a bit skeptical.

Will feature Mordicus in Abhorrent Decay #1 (after about one year of waiting, for their answers, this is pretty good news!) and received the re-release promo some weeks ago. Sounding pretty good to me, concerning that "remastered" attribute.

The album itself is one of that Death Metal albums that are outstanding and individual sounding, a real classic, if you ask me!

I randomly found Lubricants- Swallow The Symmetric Swab demo the other day when clearing out some boxes. I didn't even remember ever owning it!

I've never really understood the appeal of the Mordicus CD, compared to other Finnish greats. Comparing them to Demigod, Xysma and Convulse is a bit ridiculous. Somebody should definitely re-release the Convulse album though...that one is definitely mandatory.
