    Bro, wow! Such a badass tune! Those riffs were heavy as well as melodic. Loved the clean vocals, but wasn't a fan of the harsh vocals (pitch was off to me). Loved the open string leads that blended well in the background. I was headbanging the entire time!

    How did you do the drums?

    I'm not expert at mixing, but the only other thing that stood out to me was that there was some fuzz or a high-end hiss that I could hear, but it wasn't so bad that it took away from the song. Might have been from the hi hat.

    Overall, I loved it and it inspires me to improve my writing. I want to dabble in some vocals too. I am following you now on SC so I can't wait to check out more of your material :eddie:

    Just had a listen, sounded pretty good for the most part:yesway: Think if I were mixing there would be more treble on the guitars IMO

    Thanks! Do you mean in the lead guitars? or just all guitars?

    Maybe try mixing your song in comparison to a reference track/song you like!
