Other than the obvious which is vocals (They're being added shortly), what is needed to be added to this track to give it some extra umph if you know what i mean?

We're going into the studio to record our EP and i recorded some rough home mixed before we went in as a kinda before and after and also so they engineer knows what we're after.

The song is on my profile and it's currently un named so its down as Dance! Las Vegas

So who can help me out then?

thanks in adavance

A bass?
Or maybe a really heavy powerchord riff, heavier than the onw you have, I meant

This is the band you remind me of. A short-lived 80s metal group that never became super famous. And I think it's because they're not loud enough. Just like that Spinal Tap documentary, "but this amp goes up to 12," they just didn't have that umph.

So, you want this kind of vibe, "louder, more power." Same time era, same style of music, except one band everyone knows, and one, well, I don't even think they got their band name copyrighted.

I hope you get what I'm trying to say.

I think the rhythm guitar needs to have more... rhythm. Or basically be more interesting.

Maybe it's not as complex as I'm making it. Simply, the rhythm needs to be louder so the vocalist has to be louder. So you let the guitars speak, and the singer would have to put more energy into the song.

I think you need more then just one chord progression make that rhythm guitar go more places.
