    Hey guys,

    I've been very happy to mix and master the latest effort of those cool guys. They are Mexican, and are called Agora. They have been around for quite some time, I believe this is their 4th album. They have shared the stage with some impressive bands like Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Symphony X, Carcass, Mötley Crüe, Helloween... Seriously they kick some major ass if you're into progressive and powerful metal.

    The album is not totally finished mixing yet (but very close to completion), so as usual comments are still warmly welcome even if the band is already very happy with the result.

    Here is one track from the album : Dias de Sombra

    Watch out, this is a very loud mix :headbang::headbang::headbang:

    Sounds very nice to me man!
    Everything fits very good, only thing I noticed was that all the esses are very audible on the stereo deleay of the main vocal track, I'd tame that a bit!
    drums and guitars sound awesome

    Really digging it, well done! Never heard of the band before, but I'm liking it disregard the vocals that are beyond my linguistic comprehension :)

    Hey thanks for the comments. Good one Mago on the de-essing of the lead vocal overdubs, I will definitely fix that (at first they weren't this bright and loud, so I overlooked this problem) :)

    Amazing mix, great music...really clean but loud as hell.

    But damn I have to say that cover is sooo fucking amazing. I would love to know who did it....I LOVE IT.

    Awesome music. Good work, sir. Also, the cover art reminds me of a Geof Darrow style. Maybe the artist was influenced by him.

    Nice job, the mix is very very good!

    The band is great. I would prefer it in english... I speak spanish but never liked that language too much for metal.

    I did not record them (Tonio Ruiz did and produced this album) but here is what he told me about the guitars:

    The guitars have an unusual panning as far as I'm concerned: the 7 strings are 100% L and R, and the 6 strings are 75% L and R. It's what worked the best here.

    Amazing mix, really hard hitting. It sounds a bit darker than the average prog which I'm very much enjoying too. Big fan of the vocalist, he sort of reminds me of a (spanish) Joern Lande. Also, as mentioned before, the album cover is one of the most badass I've ever seen.
