hamza,
I much prefer the melodic vocals over the scary death metal vocals, though this is very typical of me. I would imagine some death metal music lovers would be OK with the death metal vocals. The drums could have a bigger sound, but they're OK. Guitar riffs are OK for the genre. Guitar playing is fine. Overall the song is pretty good, though I don't typically listen to death metal. I have worked with 3 different engineers originally from Pakistan (I'm from the USA), yet I have not had someone actually in Pakistan review my music. Perhaps you could review my music at this link:

I know some Islamic countries (such as Iran) make it illegal to be playing rock music: what is it like in that regard in Pakistan?

Re: Realm Unseen song, composition is fine but that snare drum sound really cuts through the mix badly.

na, its pretty cool here. the local scene is on a full rise, and new metal bands are popping out every month. if something like that was to happen, the whole country would be on the streets.

by cuts through the mix you mean overly loud or something. i mixed it by keeping Metallica's black album as a reference, the drums were pretty loud on the album.

The thing that stood out to me was the insane amount of compression. I can hear a good guitar tone trying to break through, but the drums are like pushing your compressor too much. The vocals need some more flare too. The riffs are pretty cool, a little repetitive but it flows well and its definitely metal \m/. The solo is pretty nice too. Definitely the highlight of the song IMO. The drums sound good, but they are probably too loud and thats why they are pushing your limiter. The clean vocals were very good even though they are more of a complimentary thing.

Check out my song?
