In a band's song, I find it very annoying if the snare rings a lot like on the RHCP album Stadium Arcadium, most Lamb Of God and Dream Theater songs and of course, the infamous St. Anger by Metallica. I also hate cardboard-box snares, like on some early Motorhead songs. My idea of a good snare sound is one that you don't notice, therefore it won't grate or get on your nerves. The best snare sound I've heard recently is on the Iron Maiden album The Number Of The Beast. You?
