I've wanted to learn metal mixing forever and been reading the tutorials here and elsewhere quite a long time.
They helped a lot, but after months of learning I still feel stuck and don't know how to proceed.
Here's where I managed to get so far:
The guitar tone is 100% amp sims (Legion for the rhythm, X30 for the lead), but from what I have been hearing all around the internets, amp sims are perfectly capable of producing brilliant tones, so this should not be the problem.
Can anyone offer specific advice regarding how to get more weight and clarity?

Good luck man. Mixing is a long, maddening journey.
