You're going to need decent headphones to listen so that you get the bass.

Around 5-6 guitar tracks (2 middle, 1 L Chug + 1 R Chug & 1 L Lead + 1 R Lead)
Squier Stratocaster so the tone isn't immense like on the Black Album, but I tried to get as close as possible..

Also, excess static is just from my laptop input (I don't have an interface)

And finally, I don't know how I can mess up the timing on a 4/4 song but somehow I can. There's only like 2(?) bars out on the whole thing.

No solo, sorry!

I'll try and C4C depending on how many comments I get. If I get like 2 C4C comments then obviously I'll do it.

Thanks, tell me what you think!

The palm muting could be a lot tighter. I would say use less rhythm tracks, and turn up the midrange a little bit. That being said, all the playing was just fine!

Thanks for that, I'll try and either EQ it a bit later on, or just re do it instead of doing each track in one take. xD

It's a tad too bass-heavy in my opinion. Turn the mids up a little and the bass down a bit and you'll be good. Work on that solo! Overall pretty good.

Question: where did you get the vocal and drum tracks?

And okay, maybe I over-did it on the bass

I love how I managed to make a Stratocaster too bassy and thick.

FML.

Sounds pretty fair, but the guitar tracking is a mess.
In some places you have multiple rhythm tracks and in some it cuts down to like two.
Like in the intro, the lead guitar comes in and then plays part of the rhythm along with the rhythm guitars making it sound like it gets louder. but then it cuts out. or when it all comes back in, it's pretty messy. like one guitar starts to come in and then another

you should keep it simple. two rhythm tracks to the left and right. one lead track. don't play the same parts on each.
but you're using like 6 tracks. really isn't needed and generally leaves the mix a mess unless you're quad-tracking with extremely tight playing.

the tones are extremely fuzzy sounding. just really doesn't sound good. but someone else on this site had a similar sound from a strat. so it's probably because you're using single coils. get a stacked pickup or something with humbuckers and this would probably sound awesome. the tone has that metallica sound to it. guessing you're using something like the 'Blackened' impulse from the Gold IR pack. and remember, when double-tracking and recording in general you don't need that much gain.

the lead tone sounds kind of neat actually. in some places when the rhythms cut out and it's just the lead, it's a bit out of a place but like in the intro it fits quite well.
