Hokay guys, me and my pal (I play lead and he plays rhythm guitar) recorded this song about a week ago at his place, without our singer and drum player because of the distance between us (it's a long story). The reason why we recorded is we just want to see if people like this. So anyways, here it is:

For some reason I can't post from soundcloud so this should do for now.

I like the attitude, i'd suggest you experiement with a technique called "dual mono" for the rhythm guitars.

Record one track, pan all the way left, record another track, play exactly the same way (differ the tone by a bit), pan all the way right.

You'll get a wide image and it clears the way for your leads to stand alone and shred in the middle. Not to mention room for you screamer/singer/growler to do his thing.
