recording setup is pretty simple

Guitar - Boss MT2 (ugh) - M-Audio Black box - USB to computer. Used adobe audition for the recording and acoustica beatcraft for the drums.

Your writing skills are pretty good.. but that guitar sound's like it's not a proper
quality just like Aus said, i don't now how good sound's you get out of m-audio
black box, but i think you get better results out of it..

the guitar sound has already that basic metalcore sound, alone i would work
on that quality, i myself have the podx3.. i hear a lot of samples from users
much are amazing and pretty good (it oozes quality) but others lack something
like a more natural feeling, they have back down the quality a bit hahaha..

your songs are good, i liked them.
