    Everything sounds pretty cool to me!

    Wished the guitars where a bit less stale, but I haven't done anything with ampsims+impulses in ages. Nice tones overall, great work!
    Cool band and song too!

    Samples are too obvious, more raw snare/kick would be cool.

    Thanks bud.

    Yea the guitar tone wasn't something I was super excited on, hence why the bass is so dominant. I had some weird frequency dominating my bottom in around 130hz i had to take out completely so it left them a little thin. I'll have to pay more attention to the DI's next time.

    Also agree that the snare sample needs to come down, ill probably automate it down on the rolls at least.

    I feel like the vocals could come up a tiny bit, but that's about it. Sounds good and I really like that bass tone.

    Great bass tone!
    Although guitars, drums and bass together sound scooped on my taste.

    Thanks for all the constructive criticism guys. I really appreciate it.

    Since the obvious winner of this mix is the bass, i may post a video walk through for you guys when i get a chance.
