    hot DOG that's a lot of reverb on the snare. I'd say try to compress it more to get that big snappy sound without the reverb tails. I'm no mix master so that's about it, tone sounds good and drum tones sound good to me too. maybe cut the bass on the guitars too, somewhere below 50hz and between 150 to 300 just put a little dip in there to get better separation from the kicks.

    I agree with Empryean, I think the snare has too much verb. You could probably compress it more too tbh. I usually go for around -10 reduction for snares. The guitars seem like they're pumping a bit much to me too. Try using a multi-pressor instead of a compressor on them and hit around 80-140hz. It'll help keep the palm muting under control but still keep the heaviness for the picked notes. The kick could come up too. Try bringing out the 80hz frequency some more so it hits a tad harder too.
