    How much are you compressing it? I've been compressing the kick pretty heavily for heavier music. I think the bass guitar needs to come out a bit more, too.

    Are you rolling off the low-end of the guitars/bass? Roll the bass off at about 80hz and the guitars off at 125hz.

    I can hear that it's got a nice click.. it's just getting eaten up somehow. Hmm. Try to clear out the midrange a bit.

    haha, you read my mind nick, or I read yours... i cleaned up the guitars a bit, the kick is comming through nicely now, i usually hit the kick pretty hard with the compressor.

    I dont think the bass drum is loud enough. Overall I like it, but I also think that the drums are too snare heavy...it seems like the fast snare parts should be played on the bass drum instead.
