Hey folks! Decided to take some time this past weekend to work on a new song. It's definitely in the nu-metal domain but I'm happy to accept critiques and suggestions from anyone regarding the mix, songwriting, etc.

Here is the song: Falling Apart

Enjoy :)

The mix is fucking LOUD, holy shit dude. At my normal music-listening levels my monitors almost blew me away.

Has some kinda Limp Bizkit vibe I think, which is cool. Needs vocals though, otherwise it's kinda samey

Drums are super programmed, obviously. There are a couple places where you could maybe alter the velocities during fills so that you don't get the exact same sample repeated 4 times in quick succession which makes it sound super fake.

The mix is great though - sounds just like something from an album.

Too repetitive overall, not bad sound, maybe a touch overcompressed.

Cool song! definitely sounds like Korn.

As people have said it is a bit too compressed and also the snare sounds a bit too distant? maybe too much reverb? I think once some vocals are over the top it won't sound as repetitive and really add to the overall song.
