Trying to think of some, but somehow I fail. Anyone who deserves to be really called as still old school?

I'm curious if there are still bands which record their music 100% analogue.

For me, no need to be 100 % analogue, just not sterile to the max, compressed and triggers that are annoying... It is possible even with digital studios if they want it.

I am going to guess that buying reel after reel of tape and splicing and cutting and even having access to tubes and ancient perhaps even regarded as classic 'collectors' equipment is not exactly an option for most bands even if they wanted to.

That's just my guess... considering the ease and access of the modern computer and programs to make music at home has evolved.

Yes, old analog studios were a lot more expensive. Some younger bands still menage to record very natural sounding stuff, as it is just not overproduced. Would like to hear some old band with such approach.

Deathcult from Norway comes to mind. Pytten came out of retirement to do that one the old way.

That Nuclear Hammer album that came out on Nuclear War Now a few years back was all done analog from start to finish. Its a good album, so don't get me wrong... but aside from the ability to claim its all analog would it have made any difference in sound were it just recorded via the modern route like everything else these days?

Underground black metal will sound underground by choice or be over produced by choice regardless of the use of old analog equipment or new modern equipment... as evident by literally hundreds of releases a month we get offered by various retailers on this very forum.

BM is still quite raw in underground, but what about thrash, speed, heavy, doom? Old bands I mean.

Articles I skimmed over reading claim that recent/latest Electric Wizard is analog or something to that degree I believe ...not that it matters to me, I listened to it and it sounded much like their previous albums did.

Manilla Road

Darkthrone - maybe not so old, but they deserve a mention as leading philosophers and propagandists of old sound on modern metal scene (thanks to Fenriz for his blog)

There's plenty of old death metal bands that sound great- Mortem, the last couple Autopsy releases, Ruin (technically a reformation, but still, dirty as fuck), Interment, Under The Church ("newer" band, but made up of the Nirvana 2002 guys)...but I'm struggling to think of rawer heavy/doom/speed/thrash from guys that have genuinely been around forever.

Slough Feg still sounds good production-wise and they've been around forever; similarly, Wrathblade is newer, but the vocalist's first recordings with metal bands date back to the '80s. Quicksand Dream's been around in one form or another since 1988 and is far from overproduced. That being said most of the more organic sounding stuff in a heavy/speed/thrash/doom vein is definitely newer bands.
