Not sure if any of you have heard this (I knew about the mixing/mastering problems on Death Magnetic, which is what the band was getting at), but I think this song thoroughly explains in general what not to do when mixing and mastering a track.
I think Lars' terrible drumming ruined Death Magnetic more than the brickwall limiter did :3
I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with slamming a brickwall limiter. If the song sucks and pumps in a really obvious and detrimental way, then maybe you should think again, but if it makes it louder and punchier, then I don't see a problem. I'm all about big, hyper-compressed sounds though, so I'm fairly biased. But if it sounds better without a limiter on it, the obvious solution is to not include it ;D
