    I'm digging it. Sounds good. Tight. Not my cup of tea, but sounds solid as hell.

    Sounds fantastic!

    The slow bridge dealio reminds me a lot of the mars volta.

    Also in that bridge part I thought the snare was a little too soft. But that's just how I felt.

    Otherwise the song sounds pretty solid. The drums are what really seal the deal for me, sound amazing!


    Great work.

    Hey Chamelious,

    very well played and sung.
    My only nit is the sound of the drums, they sound a bit muffled overall and could use some bang. They're beautifully played though. Guitar sound is great. I like the quiet part a lot, the guitars sound good and the singer shows he can sing....
    Some screamo here and there is good to have too..... Overall well done!

    Cheers
    Joe

    Thanks very much. I agree the drum sound isn't great, i dont think i've done the best i could do with them but the kit thats been recorded isn't a great kit, it didn't sound fantastic before it was mic'd up so i've had a hard time making them sound pro. I'm happy enough to have them in the correct place in the mix for now. I did turn the snare track up a bit which seemed to help with punch.

    Sounds great.. I would bring the kick down a touch at the start and compress the shit outta the snare to give bit of body and then bring it up to compensate.. or even mix with the original snare..

    i think this sounds great.

    sounds solid. kick drum sounds a little like muffled or something. everything else sounds badass. there are plenty of really big hardcore/screamo/metalcore bands out there with recording quality just like this. sounds legit.

    Thanks guys, i'll give the kick some attention, the snare is actually already mixed with the original but i agree could do with work!

    Sounds good, but IMHO it has too much kik and compression. Great playing
