    Sounds great to me. I messed with some eq on it and I think it just needs some more presence on the whole mix. I wouldn't mess with it much more than that. That's just me though. :)

    Can't say I'd be adding presence to that. The guitars are already bright enough for me. Nice balance though. When do the vocals start?

    thanks for your replies! i will test the presence thing on the whole mix - could work.

    the vocals on that track starts right after the end of the snippet. maybe i will upload tomorrow another track with vocals!

    And I am unconfident with the bass area... is it clean enough, fat enough or whatever?!? (info; my reference is "The Obsidian Conspiracy" )

    I think it sounds fucking awesome.

    Only thing I think could get a little better would be to have some clarity on the vocals, they sound kind of far away right now. But that might be the point aswell, but I would prefer some more high mids on it. Just a matter of taste and it already sounds fucking killer.

    I agree with the clarity on the vocals. Push it a bit, they sound quite buried.
    I like the snare sound! the bass drum could need some more punch in the lows for my taste.

    Vocals definitely sound buried, they need more punch and grit. I agree with neonlight's bass drum comment, the kick tends to get really washed out. Guitars could also use a little 500-800hz ish warmth.

    Huge guitar sound! Unfortunately they are obscuring the vocals a bit.

    snare is sort of above everything sometimes, and the vocals sound a bit out of place. other than that, tits!
