A friend of mine did the mixing, I just watched and told him what sounded good. I'm not sure about the amp we used but it was all done on pro tools and the drums are superior drummer mixed with another one that I can't remember. As for the progressive thing I didn't really know what to call it.
interesting story about the haarp machine. kinda shitty I liked their album. I saw them with the faceless in early december and Al was being kind of weird and skidish, ignoring sound guys and stuff. then he didn't move the whole show and just played over a shit ton of samples. he was also the only one not chilling at the merch table so I guess he wasn't a very chill guy.
