    Metalcore/Melodic Death Metal

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I have a small project studio, and I recorded this song this weekend as a demo for a local band. This was their first time ever, in a studio (and I use that term loosely..lol).

    What do you metalheads out there think? Any thoughts/feedback?

    I am not exactly a metalhead, but I still like to listen to a lot of it. In fact, I love the music in metal, it is the vocals I hesitate on.

    I think the guitars are kick butt tone on this!! And some well executed metalheading.

    I can't comment on the vocals though.

    I love the tune myself, and I think the mix is great. I absolutely dig on the guitar tones!!! Excellent!!!

    Congrats..TRUE

    Seems to be a lot of bottom end to it. Not distorted, but really heavy lows. I like the guitar tone, and I like what vocals there are. I can't tell if the bass is buried with the kick, or not. That would be my only real suggestion...clean up the lows a bit. They seem a bit overpowering. A little hard to make out what is what there.
    Cool tune though.

    ...

    I too like the guitars. Great clarity.

    I can't hear the bass guitar (on my work computer speakers). Vocals seem a little too dry. Drums kind of jump in and out and somehow need to be as big as the guitars.

    Stringed intruments are where you have your best sounds. I'm actually really impressed with the guitar sound. The drums and vocals aren't my taste. I think the vox mare just too loud and bassy (sounds like he had his mouth on the mic). What did you mic the drums with? It may be just bad tuning but the toms have no real tone to them.

    The drums were mic'd with SM57's on both toms and the snare, a beta 52 on the kick (blended with a triggered sample because the kick was dead sounding), and Joemeek JM27s for overheads. The toms and the kick really sounded flat and dead in the room, so I did what I could with EQ, but there was not much to work with. maybe I should replace the toms with samples.

    I will tweak the vox a bit more and see if I can get rid of some of the boom. I am also going to bring the bass guitar up a little, and compress the drum track and see if I can get it to level out a bit.

    This new mix is great!!! I really like it. Much less bassy than the other version. I like my guitar heavier but they fit the song perfect I think. I wish I could get my guitar to sound that good. How did you mic your guitars and how did you EQ them?
