    I'm pretty new here so if I'm posting in the wrong section I'm sorry haha.
    Anyways I'm trying to start a one man prog metal project, and I was wondering if anyone can give me some feed back on my mixes :hbang:
    I'm trying to release a demo every two days, and if this is the right category to post in then I'll gladly make updates if anyone is interested.

    There's some really OTT compression going on in this, I think on the drums. Allowing the kit to breathe a little more will allow for more of the sound to fit in certain frequencies. The crushed kick drum also means that the Bass guitar is often fighting to be heard over it. My suggestion would be to try and re-balance the drums compression, and make the bass more predominant at about 240 Hz and 2.4KHz, to allow for both the clicky tone to come through, as well as a nice low end shunt.

    Guitars sound gnarly!
