Extreme Metal Specialists please come in

I am getting confused by all the blastbeats, 16th guitar notes and the fucking loudness.... I could use a pair of ears. Any feedback would be appreciated!

Too much "thud" on the snare for me, sounds a bit to unnatural, I'd also define the snare and kick a bit more.
I'd also add some highs to the kick.
There also appears to be some bass-movement in certain part-changes, I'd highpass some stuff quite a bit.

I do like the vocals though, sounds like a good vocalist.

Sounds like limited to hell
I agree with the poster above - snare could be less beefy.
Try automating the snare compressor in order to set longer attack time during blastbeats. That could help the snare to sound less artificial.
Watch out for bass jumping out in few places.

i didnt notice anything else... maybe rythms could have a tiny bit less highs, but thats personal

cheers.

+1 for the snare, needs a bit more high end imh

Add some clarity to your guitars or lower the vocals a tad.

Are you're overheads Compressed? They sound splashy as hell, could be your mastering limiter or your compressor if you did comp them, also the master is clipping like hell fyi
