Any suggestions for metal songs, mastered at commercial quality, with strong mid frequencies?

    So the thing is I`m mastering my songs with references and it`s cool, I seem to get very close to them, but I don`t like it. Too much treble and overall hissing, not enough everything else. It actually made me looking at my favorite tracks from the new perspective and realize they are far from the tone I`m looking for. So, I wonder if you know any metal songs with heavy mids, professionally mastered that I could use as references, would be awesome if it would be less djenty and with chords/powerchords (not 1 string at a time). Thanks!

    If I'm not mistaken I think Periphery and Monuments have pretty pronounced mids in their tracks. For a darker mid sound, I'd check out juggernaut from Periphery.

    Thanks, but it`s not exactly what I`m looking for. I really like this guitar tone (in the very beginning) but it`s raw, I`d like to find mastered songs with guitars like this.

    pretty close, thanks! I had a feeling hardcore will do the thing, just not my kind of heavy music

    i think slipknot have a good amount of bark in their mids.

    around 3:46 you can hear just guitar.
