Recorded a demo (brutal/tech death content inside!)

Hi all - just wanted to see if you guys had any advice regarding mixing this thing - every time I sit down, 5 minutes later every fader is at +10. The playing is sloppy, but this is more for me to A) show the other guys in the band and B).... around with recording than anything else.

Drums are EZDrummer DFH, programmed in Cubase, then pulled into Pro Tools LE.

Guitars/basses were recorded direct - Jackson SLSMG through a Line6 Spider II, Warwick thumb bolt-on direct into the Mbox2 Mini.

I recorded 2 guitar tracks, panned them hard left and right, then copied those onto 2 other tracks and panned them both around...75% I think?

Anyway, I hate the ....ing guitar tone! Any tips right off the top?

Thanks a lot guys! I appreciate anyone taking time to listen to this.

EDIT: Whoops! turns out Soundclick doesn't like 44khz encoding. This one works: http://soundclick.com/share?songid=7280175

Yeah, something seems to have gone really wrong with the export, the MP3 conversion, or the Soundclick upload.

pretty awesome. sounds like Cannibal Corpse. The tone and writing. I guess ur a fan Yeah, I would also change the EQ a bit on the guitars and all to make them more up front, but if u are going for a CC mix, i think you nailed it.

Hey, I found my soundclick uploads don't work unless at 44.1k

A lot of that is probably the medium I'm recording through - the Spider II's headphone out is not exactly a POD, haha! The tone sounds really middy to me as is - do you think it's too scooped?

The mix is very drum heavy! Probably a combination of a) the guitars don't sound great and b) I spent WAAAY more time programming the drums. And yeah, soundclick hates anything over 44.1k...

At first I thought it sounded scooped, but I think it might just be that everything is buried so far under the drums. Not too bad, though.

Mix sounds great! When are you adding vocals?

I checked out your myspace pages too... brutal stuff. I especially liked BN.

I actually boost my mids usually, but I agree dude. my main problem with this mix is the guitar, and unfortunately, there's a fine line between boosting mids to cut through and making it sound like garbage!

Keep in mind there's 4 guitar tracks on here, 2 of which are double-tracked copies of the original R and L tracks. Is there just too much gain involved?

Thanks man! I started playing drums when I was 8 and now I'm starting to think that I like drums more than everyone else haha! You're completely right - but if I nail a sick guitar tone I'd feel more comfortable reeling the drums in.

I'm adding vocals...whenever we record the new CD! This is a song I put together myself, but it will probably end up with Atrocious Abnormality in some form. Glad you liked BN bro! Thanks!

Thanks dude...I do like some of the Bulb/Periphery stuff, but to me that part probably sounds like Maruta more than anything - MARUTA on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

Nice song, bad mix IMO. Everything is too boxy and loud and just doesn't really sit well.

The song itself is brutalz as hell!
