Question Complete Songs (Mixing Practice)

I've searched the forums for full unprocessed songs to use for mixing practice but I can't seem to find anything with good screaming vocals. I need to find songs with DI's and screaming/singing vocals. Anyone know where I could grab some for practice or would be willing to record some? Much appreciated guys.

No need for anything super long. Just something that has guitar, bass, drums, and vocals. I'm mostly trying to grasp vocal mixing within a metal context.

It's too bad that Zack isn't hosting the Ruins files anymore. It sounds just like what you were looking for.

Apparently not if you dont see them in the file, hahaha.
We did that at a local studio for a metal compilation the song was put on. the guy didnt get DI's. It was before i knew of the importance of DI's, so i never said anything. Sorry, man.

This is from another forum and not metal!

But the song is great and VERY professionally recorded.

Is there any processing on the guitar tracks at all? Sounds like there's already a slight delay on some of it.
