The guitar playing is great, it fits your style perfectly. The intro and the solos are right on. I really like the bass as well, it holds everything down but also gets out of the box a little and does some cool stuff. The drums aren't perfect but they're done well - its just that the recording has them a little muddy and indistinct.

The vocals though. What are you recording them with? He distorting the mic and/or the preamp all the time and it doesn't sound raw or gritty - just amateurish, like its through a computer mic. Also, it sounds like he did all of this in one take, which is a no no. There's no way he can get the intensity of this song in one take, have him do a couple full takes and punch in the more specific parts to get a better sound. If you are already doing this then I don't know - maybe its still the mic making him sound like that.

Good overall job, just keep practicing and try to get everything even tighter.

well we recorded everything at once [in two takes] with a snowball mic. first we did guitar, bass, and drums. then vocals separately. for the vocals he literally just sang straight into it. our vocalist did about three takes, i think the one we used was the last.
we know we should do it all in a few different takes but we had an hour or so to get a decent demo together so we could book a show [we got the gig].

and i'm the bassist, so thanks for that. we need some real criticism cuz comments from parents and friends are always biased.
