    Sounds very bass heavy, but kinda cool, i like that.
    Btw you should post stuff like this in my new started soundcloud group Ampsimulation (cause u are using one right?) Guitar solo around 2minutes should come up a little in volume, i'd say. Rock on

    Should be louder - compare to commercial productions. Too much low end IMO - low frequencies eat easily huge part of mix clarity. Work on low end slightly and make the mix clearer in presence area - less energy from low frequencies.
    (tested on Adam a77x and KRK Rokit8 III monitors and DT770pro and DT880pro headphones).

    Yeah, I hear what you're sayin. I have pretty poor listening environment, so I tend to overdo some things (bass in this case). In theory - you can't have a loud mix + heavy low end, right?

    Of koz you can have loud mix with killer low end. To get well balanced low end you need to work hard and understand extremely well how compression and EQ work. Your mix sounds nice to me but at first get rig of unwanted frequencies (bellow 40Hz) - not only from bass tracks, but guitars, synths, drums (rooms, OH, snare....) and then experiment with low frequencies, make air to presence area and then I'm sure you will be able to make your mix much louder.

    Might be the case of: http://productionadvice.co.uk/youtube-loudness/

    Thanks for tips Adee, attenuating these low frequencies made bass cleaner and gave some room for more volume.
    I've got a bonus question regarding headphones you're using: DT770pro and DT880pro. Are they viable @ checking mixes? And which one do you prefer? (I'm looking for extra pair for myself)

    I definitely preffer DT770pro. They were my first PRO cans I worked with 10 years ago. I borrowed them from radio station where I worked and after 10 seconds of using them I decided to buy a pair. Closed‑back design, fantastic, punchy sound with a good balance of details in every frequency range (slightly to much mids and lows but its fine to me).
    DT880 pro - semi-open so they are not good for noisy environment. Extremely realistic and neutral sound. No bass at all, haha - its very difficult to check the low end in your mix using DT880. I used to use HD650s previously and there were even LESS BASS!!!!!
    I also HIGHLY recommend AKG K240 MKII headphones for mixing metal stuff.
