This is a nice simple arrangement that's a throwback in style. I think it would benefit from having a bass track to round out the mix. The arrangement is coherent and has good flow, but the mix...

Great guitar tone to start out and a nice fade in. rhythm guitars make a huge entrance, as do the vocals damn. The kick drum and guitars at 1:05 sync up and work together in a really nice way....

nice production and nice atmosphere in the intro. i like the high synth dancing around at 0:40 and throughout that section. the guitar bouncing back and forth between the two notes is a little stiff...

Nice picking work here, I especially like the fill at :10 so far. Tone isn't my favorite, the distortion has kind of a brittle crunch to it it seems. Works better for the leads though, especially up...
