    Hi, first time poster here!

    I'm doing a home recording of one of my bands songs, and this is the first time I've ever tried to properly record and mix a metal track.

    The song isn't at all finished by the way.

    I guess I'm going for a kind of Gojira/Mastodon sound with the drums and guitars. But I'm wondering how my guitars should sound in terms of EQ, I'm not very good at comparing them to other tracks.

    I haven't EQ'd the guitars yet, this is just how the preset sounds. I realise there's too much distortion, but does my guitar tone sound normal? Or does it sound really wrong? I really have no idea. Please give some feedback!!

    Thanks.

    It sounds really thick and awesome dude. I suggest having a tad more presence though, maybe a super tiny bit more treble.

    Anywhere but here.
    A little more upper mids/treble on the guitar for presence sake. Feels a touch back seat. I like where the lows are sitting as it stays very distinct from the bass, as in I can hear both clearly (which is a good thing).
