Woe - Quietly, Undramatically (remix)

Candlelight Records has made Woe's Quietly, Undramatically available on their Bandcamp as an "exclusive Bandcamp remix". I haven't heard the original release but Full Metal Attorney had this to say: "In contrast to the drums, the guitars tend toward the understated". and "You probably won't notice the bass except at the end of the epic "Full Circle"".

This new version of Quietly, Undramatically has good balance between guitars and drums and quite audible bass playing, in fact it sounds great. It got a mention at Lurker's Path and they noticed the improvements in Chris Grigg's vocals:
"Chris can channel some real gut-wrenching fury through his pipes. That power didn’t always come across on the first mix of Quietly (it was often lost amid muffling distortion, Leviathan-style), but the new one captures his voice at its most ferocious".
I also found this Decibel interview in which Grigg discusses the remix.
