I'm always big fan of the production on this album. It's kind of a modernized 2000's version of this blown out, reverberated sound of 80s punk or even early 90s punk. but not overly lo-fi by any means. The drums must be either compressed or processed in some way to sound very up front. Listening to the toms on Sick., they just cut through the mix so distinctly. I'm thinking they might have done some processing to the drums as a whole.

The guitars seem to also be very up front but also have a very distinct reverb that is most likely the amps and then compressed in the mix to be so clear.

And I'm guessing they did some kind of processing on the entire buss to get this cohesive, in your face, kind of reverberated sound out of the whole mix. maybe they used tape delay on the master mix?

looking for any advice to achieve this sound. maybe it was simply the usage of older equipment? but I wouldn't be surprised if they just manipulated recordings made with modern equipment. I actually emailed the band once trying to get anything out of them about this album's production but received no reply.
