Haha holy **** dude, that was incredible. No complaints songwriting-wise dude :P It was straight forward metal as you said. The only flaw I found was to be in the mixing, it could be mixed better, I'm not sure how though. Sorry . But great job dude! I loved the shredding

Crit mine? I'm not sure if you'll like it, it's hard rock bordering on metal. https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1354298
