    This song has a ton of cool elements. Not really any complaints from me. Love that intro man. Guitar tone is killer!

    Thanks man. Bass was a simple patch on the Pod and then honestly just some slight eq/compression. what really helped was NOT tuning all the way down to drop F, haha.

    Kind of an After The Burial approach...except they're playing in Drop C#

    Well it paid dividends for you. You can still hear the low end, but that high end grit is on point. Sometimes simple is the best approach!
