Updated the mixes. Now there are two: my attempt at a generic modern metal mix, and this abomination, which is the next step down the Left Hand Path. It turns out there's really not that much to do if you stay at your grandparents' for Christmas, so I modeled the HM-2's distortion with a couple waveshapers. It sounds br00tz, d00d.
The modern metal mix sounds like it's missing all the low end, maybe a highpass set too high or something. The other one just sounds nasty (IMO), and I think it's a little heavy handed on the reverb.
Thanks to the guys over at AcmeBarGig I now have a copy of Headcase and I really wanted to put it too the test so here's another shot at mixing this track. Feedback would me much appreciated. https://soundcloud.com/brad-ezard/confined-mix-practice-headcase
