    Sounds good dude. I dig, I dig.

    As far as the production, have you mastered it? If so what did you use? It sounds great...but it sounds very linear if that makes sense. Not spacious enough maybe. Just picking really though cause it does sound good.

    Not mastered. Also rhythms were re-amped but we still gotta go back and reamp all of the leads and any noodly shit like the late line in the intro. Those are all some plugin still.

    Glad y'all dig it!

    We had just tracked vocals on some other song and we wanted to get something online for promo so we picked this one, did a quick mix while trying to capture a bit of the Dark Roots testament sound.

    This sounds great, man - I'll be curious to hear it once you reamp the leads. The mix itself is, on one hand very good, but on the other hand kind of awesomely raw. Given what you're saying about the lead guitars, this could very easily just be a fairly quick mix of the raw tricks that you're planning to come back and revisit... but if you do, I'd suggest doing as little more to it as possible and leaving it as close to this as you can. Drums sound huge, guitars are really raw and in your face, and the bass is even enough to fill out the low end and has an attack that just barely clicks through enough on the faster stuff.

    Compared to all the shitty overproduced djent mixes I've been hearing lately, this sounds like a band. There's a ton of energy here.

    I'm with Drew - don't polish this too much, it sounds awesome.

    Fucking rippin' man! I dig the hell out the songwriting I wouldn't touch a lot of what's there, you've got some serious raw energy in that. The only things I would maybe revisit(after only 1 listen and me being a complete recording noob)would be maybe a touch more bass, and possible a little less snare. I love the snare sound, but sometimes it seems a little overpowering in places. Overall, I can only hope my mixes come out that fucking killer, well done sir!
