Had a lot of fun on this one! Guitars, bass and vocals recorded using POD HD500, keys are Arturia Jupiter, drums are superior 2.0, Acoustic guitar and vocals recorded using a Shure SM58!

Gear used:

Steinberger ZT-3 custom
Ibanez GSR205
Jack & Danny C-200 Acoustic

Would be nice to get some feedback from you guys!

Kinda missing the bottom end, sounds a little anemic. Guitar sounds nice, but I wish the bass was fuller.

Vocals, however, are incredible. Nice job!

Good playing and singing overall!

Electric guitars are awesome. Sometimes overpowers the vocals.
Bass is pretty good - a more heavily compressed low end could help.
Acoustic guitar sounds like a cheap guitar through a cheap mic, so an understandable sound with the gear you used.
Snare sounds pretty good, but too dry, imo. Bump up that room mic. Sometimes the cymbals are very intrusive, sometimes too far away. Kick too clicky imo (always a problem with the avatar standard kick), but has nice punch. Toms too low. Work on velocity editing in cymbals and especially the hi-hat, which sounds very robotic.
Synth strings can be a bit overwhelming at times.
Lead vocals are nice for most part - they drown in some places.
The low harmony vocal in the chorus is too bassy/loud. Doesn't sit well.

All in all a nice cover!

Stellar job on the vocals! +1 on the drums missing low end.
