  • Studio. I feel bad saying that since it's not the organic original sound that got the song started in the first place, but it is a much more constructed, enhanced and composed piece of music than the acoustic version. There are more layers in the audio and every line probably had to be recorded multiple times in order to get into the final song. It just takes a lot more work and the work shows

  • It really depends on who and what. There's a lot more freedom to play the songs live than in the studio.

    Personally, I haven't seen them live, but I'm not too excited about the idea of seeing Disturbed live. David Draiman doesn't sound very good singing live and they only have one guitar player. When Dan Donegan goes to play a solo, you only hear the bass under him and it doesn't sound as strong.

    Iron Maiden has THREE guitars in the band. That opens up so much more for awesome stuff live. Alter Bridge has two guitars. I saw them a couple of years ago. During one song, Myles Kennedy improvised a solo. Mark Tremonti looked over at him like "dude, what in the world?" Myles just shrugged it off like "because I felt like it!" There's more freedom for cool stuff like that live.

    Live all the way, then again I listen to artists with actual bands involved and none of the ridiculous electronics that get involved with music today. Even though Rob Caggiano (the guy with the purple guitar) has a ridiculous pedal board and amp setup, he's still playing an instrument haha

  • I always prefer studio... but still it's dependable...

    For example in Rock related genres... live performances could sound very good as well... but Electronic live performances sound shittier... it's a studio-based music mostly...
