    Quit making the rest of us feel inferior, Matt :p
    But in all seriousness, this is fucking awesome. :devil::Smokin:

    SPEED EDIT: Those orchestral stabs are a bit loud.

    Yeah, you're right. I updated the mix to bring them down a bit

    Obviously it sounds good and you are way better than I am at this stuff all the way around, but in order to try to give some constructive criticism:

    Not too crazy about the cymbal sounds and the synth parts are overpowering at times. I would bring the toms up some too as they get lost in the shuffle in places.

    Minor quibbles and probably just differences of opinion. Sounds killer regardless.

    Sounds cool! I do rather enjoy this style done well.

    Thoughts: the bass guitar is getting a bit lost except when the bass lines go a bit higher. Perhaps the guitars have a bit too much low frequency energy, and could potentially do with a bit more body. Could then fill the low frequencies more with the bass. Do you just have the clean bass sound going on? I guess also not so much low frequencies needed in the kick rum for this style, but sounds like you've go that under control. The drums could possibly be a bit louder in general (probably not the cymbals much though) and they sound a bit dry for my taste.

    Side note: raw tracks definitely wanted of this.
