MD or mp3

Got this show when I was first starting out, before I even knew you could scan for lossy lineage. Its the Testament set from June 11, 2004 in Sweden. It probably was recorded with MD, most metal sets from the European festivals seem to be, but it looks funny to me. Theres blockiness, and it looks like theres a partial cutoff at 12hz, and spikes up to 14hz. Thanks for any help!

Re: MD or mp3

I think that's been recompressed, too. I offer no proof, but I think the stuff above the cutoff is likely artifacts exaggerated by the recompression somewhere back up the line.
