sounds good. nice solid riffs, should be good with vox.

how'd you get the guitar sound? ... and what'd you use for drums? : )

Not bad at all man.

It's generally well balanced and very punchy, god stereo spread. But to my tastes the guitars and drums both have a bit of a scratchy harshness in the upper mids. Bring some warmth into it and it'll sound much fatter without losing clarity.

Yeah I am happy with the mix but I do feel that it needs something, you might be right. Thanks dude.

I am using a Line 6 POD X3 Pro. Love that ****ing thing. Took my months to get the sound I want. And we are actually using Toontrakc's EzDrummer on this song. Incredibly convenient but sooooo hard to mix.

First thing I noticed negatively, the drum samples. EZ Drummer, am I right? Those sound really shoddy these days, and the guitar and bass tones definitely need more work.

Aside from the mixing, the writing needs some work as well, as I personally find the beginning too long, and the part with the distorted guitar after 4 minutes goes on for too long without anything interesting happening. All in all, it's a decent track, but definitely needs some polish.
