    For this one, I used Audio Assault's Hellbeast (Randall Satan emulation) and a Carvin DC700 with Warpigs, as well as Northern Artillery Drums from Urgitone. Would love to ask for some feedback! Thanks

    I dont know if its the notes you are playing or its out of tune. Not being a dick but it sounds very off to me

    The guitar and bass don't really intonate together I think so it just sounds off instead of intentional.

    Huh, I know I already gave my Carvin a set up, but the bass is still in factory setup so maybe?

    I like the ideas, but I'd have to re-listen to it when bass and guitar are in tune. Disclaimer: I'm a noob.

    Agreed with others: there is intonation issues with the guitar and bass on this.
    Also it sounds very 'mixed by a guitar player' in that the guitars and bass are way too loud. Try to remember that you are a guitar player and naturally will want to mix your instrument the loudest, but that is not what sounds good. So turn down the guitar and bass by like 5 db and turn up the whole mix and hopefully it will be more balanced.
    Also also your guitar sounds pretty mono, even though it is too tracks. Are you using identical tones for left and right sound? Try and have slightly different tones on each side and it will sound much wider.

    Songwriting seems fine, and drums parts are fine.
    Try and rework it and post a new version :)
    Yes it is not always nice to have that much critique, but hopefully you learn from it and what you do forward will be better!
