acdc51502112,
I'm a mechanical engineer, so I checked the calculations in your math music. I wouldn't call this metal (at least until after 3:00), though it still computes for me. It does sound fairly progressive though. Definitely an interesting listen. Most of it is pretty tight. Please review my music at this link:

Really tight playing and well arranged. The heavier part reminds me of Infinity Land-era Biffy Clyro. The clean guitar tone in the first half work really well and I really dig the spidery math riffs. Would have liked to hear more interplay between the clean and distorted sections though instead of just having it in two halves. Still really cool and interesting stuff.

Really nice, always great to hear new prog that has cool ideas in it. The latter half reminded me distantly of Devin Townsend, in a good way. Keep up the good work and lets keep on proggin'!

If you like, feel free to listen to my band's two prog rock/metal songs here:

I love the duality of the clean guitars. Reminds me of the guitar work done in Dance Gavin Dance's self-titled with a cross between some Scale The Summit elements.

Your clean tone is nice and intelligible. I would explore mix options to make it a just a hair warmer. Consider parallel compression, it may do you wonders (within the right degree). As for the rest of the mix, I think the bass could be turned down just a hair. Your levels for drums seem to be pretty appropriate, though I would consider turning the snare up just a little and overheads down a hair. Consider some velocity adjustment man, if you're going for a more organic vibe, the drums need to vary in their hits (ESPECIALLY in the overheads). Try not to be too complacent in your tracking, there are a few fraked notes and parts that are simply off time. Some simple clip editing or re-tracking will do this song justice.

Musically, it's pretty awesome, though more melodic elements would keep me engaged for sure whether they be vocals or guitar work.

Overall, I like your perspective on the genre, even though it's not technically very metal, it's definitely proggy indeed.

I'm definitely going to look into all this. The drums were suppose to be a place holder, but we switched drummers and just wanted to put something out there. Though, I will try and work on what you've suggested with the drums cause who know's when I'll need to do that stuff. Also, we've picked up a vocalist, and everything's going to be re-tracked and there will be vocals thanks dude will be checking your stuff out! Also we've got 4 other tracks up on the soundcloud profile.
