Hey, good choice. You'll like it on everything, it's quite brutal and not so much on the clean side. The deesser works a treat reducing hihats on a snare track, besides making it sound killer. I had mesa boogie 12ax7 tubes laying around and put them inside since the original tubes were starting to die, cranking the tube gain past 2 o'clock brings in some cool features. What I like best is to cut a lot of gain with a minimal ratio (like 1,5:1), that's where the compressor has the most interesting and fastest attack and release, I haven't seen any plugin that sounds as metal as this.
