Anyone agree that Loudness War seem to be slow down after the buzz of Death Magnetic around the world? Especially for this year released in rock and heavy metal.
The list for good sound quality record this year is:

Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold
Slash - Slash
The Final Frontier - Iron Maiden
Asylum - Disturbed
Black Swans and The Wormhole Wizards - Joe Satriani
A Thousand Sund - Fever
Fever - Bullet for My Valentine
Accept new album

and i know there are many more.

Those artists listed aren't that popular, that's why. They are real artists. Pop musicians contribute nothing but their voice (and mostly autotuned) so they have no say over anything. I think the trend will stay around forever because the majority of people don't sit down and just listen to music, they do things like drive, exercise, mow the lawn, or other loud stuff that would make music with a nice dynamic range very unpleasing to listen to for them. I wish it would end. Peaking every single sound makes music sound like crap and that a 2 year old mastered it.

They are popular as fairly mainstream rock acts, and while I hate manufactured pop music as much as the next person, your comparison is not very convincing—we all know that there are plenty of horribly mastered rock recordings out there (whether by otherwise good bands or not).

They may be more mainstream in rock, but rock isn't exactly mainstream anymore. The 60s and 70s rock was mainstream, now it's thought of and turning into screaming and sadistic sounding, just very dark and depressing, or just whiny crap about not being loved. Since rock is not pop anymore, the artists have control over music. The Rolling Stones are still around, but is anyone going to be watching some rapper or teen icon sing when they are 70? No. I like rock, but anything new it is hard to find anything good. There is only one album (for me) that has come out in the past like 30 years that I can actually listen to the whole thing, and still listen to constantly.

I don't get why it's referred to as a war...the majority of people don't care about quality, and are not complaining. I could understand if every single person who bought a cd was disappointed and complained, and the record company was just like F you. We the people who like quality sound are the minority.
