    Alright, first mix for another band I've ever done and had released.

    Very in-the-box, direct everything string wise, use podfarm with a mesa impulse for the guitars (I personally love the tone I got), parallel compressed the podarm bass and EQ'ed the grit into one of them. Drums were supposed to sound very chango but I know they still sound fake as hell, despite humanization and such, (suggestions?) and the vocals were done with a relatively cheap mic, RE320, which I personally like anyways, but not entirely happy with how the vocals settled. Any and all suggestions welcome. if something sounds like a trash can or mud, let me know, I'm here to improve.

    I think you can pull off that guitar tone but the drums are holding this song back, they're very mono sounding. Why is that? Make the drums wider and bigger.
    Also try to lay off the autotune, it's so boring to listen to.

    remixed the song completely before the band decided to release it, far clearer mix imo all all accounts, hopefully some feedback on this one as well?

    The drums sound awful. You should try using Steven Slate Drums for some nice straight out of the box metalcore drums. First of all, I can't really hear the snare very well. The kick is loud as fuck too.
