I listened to "Turn of the dark!" and the riffs were killer! Not a single boring bit. The drumming was also really, really sweet. I thought that the mix sounded quite dead to me. Next time when you mix different instruments, you should think about every instruments own nitch were it'll sit in. Guitars in the mids, bass in the bass, vocals in the treble/presence, and so forth. The kick and toms missed that treble spike that brings it to life, and the occupied too much of the mids. Guitars just missed that something, but I can't really figure out what it is. Composition was just killer!

These demos are pretty amazing. The songwriting is definitely there, I think the mix just needs some work. Giving more presence to the bass would really round out the thin guitar tones and emphasize the overall rhythm of the tracks. Additionally, I feel like the guitars could be brought to the front a little more; the crunch is there, but the power is not. A little polish on the production and you'd sound like something I'd expect to find on a shelf in a music store. Your music is fantastic.

C4C?

Thanks guys! Still working on the production and I'm making a lot of progress with it! I know what you're saying about the power being missing. It's a bit of a learning curve with the computer recording and mixing. First time doing a full band mix so I'm still learning about stuff.

sonny,
"Dark": Guitar playing is tight. Song is pretty heavy (until 2:00, which was a surprise & kind of funny). Some good vocals could help. Well done overall. Please review my music at this link:
