    Headphones here. Great clarity on everything. Vocalist has a good voice, the verb is nice. Vocal sits real well over the heavy guitar, a very pleasing combination. Drums sound good. The only nit I have is the toms - they're so tight & dry... I prefer to hear them breathe a little. Hardly worth mentioning in the context of the whole thing. Hot song. Great job on the mix

    Really nice work! The guitars sound great throughout, and the vocals are generally spot on. Love the Iron Maiden vibe!

    Instruments work well together.

    I'd try the cymbal bells more centered. When I close my eyes and hear a solo cymbal, I think of it in front of me with the bell in the middle, splashes and crashes off to the sides.

    The vox have way too much reverb IMHO, especially in the beginnin, it's so noticeable that it's like you are introducing it Maybe trying a different verb and easing into it, working up to a climax or something.

    The song kinda drags especially in the beginnin. Maybe pickin up the tempo would help.

    Other than that your mixing sounds great as usual

    Cool song Chris. To me, it seems the bottome end builds up a bit at times. It doesn't distort or anything like that, but detracts from the voice. Just when it gets rockin. It seems to get a bit muddy. Not as clear as I'd like.....(might just be personal preference there....) Good guitar tone, nice bass. They both seem to have good space, and sound. To me, when it builds up, it seems a bit muddled. Everything is still heard, but not as clear as other stuff you've done.

    But, nice tune man. I think the voice could be a bit drier, but again, that may not be what they want. It's a great voice, and when it's quiet, being drier would have a better impact, on me at least.

    Much better! It lets the emotion in the vocals stand out instead of the verby effect......

    I totally agree!!

    I had to wrestle my singer to let me remove some verb.

    Funny...once i did it, she loved it!
