First off the production in this is raw(ramsey voice) sounding but very finessed, it's almost like they recorded the whole album live and did a  EQ mix..
It's not the kind of production i come to expect from these kind of bands which have very polished and extremely well/ overproduced records BUT after getting through this record i can say it benefits it fully and il explain why!
The dynamics of the band are in full exposure here from the small to the large moments in the songs from the heavy and technical riffs to the dexterous bass playing and  the drums strength and impact is present all the way through but remains present and clear in the mix but also its hard and precise work from the musicians and not fix it in the mix attitude.
