    Honestly I think that's totally rad. The drums have such a nice up-close sound to them. Reminds me of Albini's drums... The snare has a little bit of a ring to it but that doesn't bug me at all. Good guitar tone and parts. Throw some vocals on that bitch!

    the kit sounds too wet. there's a bit too much sparkle on the EQ. I'm wanting a little more meat out of the drums, and more thunk to the kick.

    It seems a little swoop EQ'd.

    Generally pretty good. I liked the feel and the energy.

    Something about the snare is bugging me a bit. Might just be a bit too loud.

    Guitars sound OK. If it were me I'd make cut somewhere around 1K to get rid of some of the flab and a boost somewhere just above 3K to give them a little more presence. The addition of vocals might change all that though.

    Overall pretty good.

    Thanks alot mate I'll make those changes you recommend and see what it goes like. Yea I think the snare's problem is it's tuned too high and so it sounds a bit thin and pingy.
