    This sounds insane!
    Guitars Sound kinda weird. Is there a middle rhythm track?
    You nailed both guitar and bass tones.
    Snare sticks out a little
    Cymbals are way to present and bright.

    How the fuck did you achieve that kind of tone?

    Pr0z4kk, thank you very much for feedback!
    >Guitars Sound kinda weird. Is there a middle rhythm track?
    Yep, it is a triple track, but also it can be coz i added some reverb on guitars to add some "roomy" thing, it is actually what Kurt does in his recordings - he record his room sound for both bass and rhytm guitars.
    >Snare sticks out a little
    probably coz last time a was mixing it i paid too much attention to snare track, so my ears lost sensitivity to snare cracks
    Actually it was like 2 years of working with this project, i like Kurt's production, so i tried to achieve this in many ways

    It's not reverb. the third track causes them to sound very "smeared", and the sound shifts from stereo to like a very wide mono. shit's weird.

    The panning on cymbals (hat, ride) is way too extreme to the sides, the hi hat sounds like it's L100. Guitars are not hard panned either, right?

    The guitar and bass tone is superb btw.
