    Ive been working on these guys the last couple weeks.

    I complained so much that they fired thier then singer.

    Now theyve got the guy youll here on the MP3 here.

    Much improved.

    Im glad.

    Nothing worse than an awesome band getting ruined by a horrible vocalist.

    You seemed to have captured another good performance, Chris. I really like the guitar tone. Vocals seem to sit very well. Drums don't seem to be as full as some of your mixes. Might just be at my end, but not the same as some other stuff you've posted. Good drum sounds, just seem further back in the mix. Good guitars though. And the guy has a good voice for this.

    Right on Dogman.
    Youre right the drums are a little thinner than usual.

    Theres so much going on in this mix that its a must to make cuts here and there.

    The drums got cut a tad but not too much.

    Thanks for the review bro.

    Hi

    Nice work Finster. The guitar tone is very good and although it's a busy mix, we can hear everything well. Is it a real kick or is it programmed ? How is it done ?

    Thanks,

    Jack Real.

    Very complex piece in the instrumental voice leading and rhythms. Yeah, the singer sure can sing. Really good arranging and mixing to bring out clarity in such a dense mix. I like the contrasting middle section with the ac gtr, but don't like the string sound so much at 3:24. The gtr part there would sound good on classical. Smart to post this at 320 kbps.

    EDIT: so what is the percussion that's doing the fast "click" sound... is it double kick drums? Sounds like tympani.

    track sounds great, i like that in your face click on the kick drums.

    I must say that the band and especially the singer ARE NOT very original sounding at all. Shadows Fall wannabees.

    I always wonder how musicians can be so talented, but not hear that they are pretty much sound alikes to alot of bands that have come out as of last few years. I guess it has always been that way, so it shouldnt come as a suprise to me. It happens to all music from country to rap to metal. Usually the singer is what can set each band aside from each other in the same genre, this guy is good at what he does, but is not very original in my opinion.

    do you have anything from the last singer???

    you did another great job on the track though.

    peace

    Sounds like a sampled bass drum.
    Hey Finster, good mix. Nice and clean and smooth with lovely guitars. You guitars sound better evry time I here a new mix!
    First impressions of the mix are that it is a little too bright, suppose you could fix that at mastering, but prob better fixed at mix stage.
    Snare is a bit weak. Any way of boosting a hi frequency with quite a thin Q maybe just to get it too break through? just an idea off the top of my head.
    Keep it up man.
