    Very nice! U pulled it off! Maybe make the kick a little more clicky? A tiny bit just to make it cut through. And bring up the snare just a tad. Good stuff

    Thx man, I was thinking the same! ;D But instead of bringing them up, I will bring everything down a bit, cause the master is already damn loud! ;D

    i sense eq boosting on the overheads, they come off a bit thin and harsh. try saturating them for fullness, and then using some (more?) mastering eq instead, cuz the whole mix sounds a bit muddy and needs brilliance. clean vox sound really phasey, could be the tuning. a decent mix anyhow. really nice production. especially the breakdown stuff. just my 2 cents.

    thx!! the OHs are actually my problem on this. if i leave them more full they collide with the guitars and the syllables of the vocs. but now they sound thin.

    the phase thing is another problem i'm having so often. it's the tuning, yes. i triple my main vocals (l,c,r) and tune them with graph mode. sometimes they come out phasey then because of the perfect pitch. what can i do against this? =(

    well to be honest, i'd rather have someone critique my mix on regular speakers/headphones too! not everyone that's gonna be listening to your mixes, have ADAM A7 monitors in their house,car, or pocket lol

    Just to add - Great synth work. Did you mix real and programed drums? (HH break sounds like a sample)

    I added some shell samples to support the snare and kick is kick ten. toms, 50% of the snare and OHs are real!

    Guitars sound a little weak. Wouldn't hurt to bump the bass up a notch me thinks. Maybe a little more around 10khz on the kick. Using kick ten that's generally where I find the best result. Other than what has already been mentioned that's all I got. Sounds good dude
