This is a song by my brother's band (metal), I have recorded and mixed this. I am wondering if this is what mastering houses are looking for? The low end etc. seems to translate well on all systems.
There will be small changes made, like compressing lead vocals more, but overall this is close to what I want.

Any and all comments welcome!
I will paste my other response...
Exp. Lyrics for the weak ears, I have done some very active stuff so it does not bother me.
I could do wonders with it if the tracks presented to the mastering engineer were 2 mix vocals and 2 mix instrumental. During the loud vocal parts, to tame them where they need to be to be air or cd friendly, the track would take a hit.
It must be mastered that way, or remixed/
By allowing your mastering engineer access to the instrumental and the vocals separate, we could edit the dynamics separately so that the whole track could vibe better.
That would be the only way at this point is for ME to mix the edited dynamics of the vocals into the instrumental.
First, I personally would fatten up the instrumental 4 fold. Then I would hand edit and do some flying faders to the vocal mix and even add a few efx in places to make it a whole lot more presntable. I could make this a really professional sounding tune if I had the 2+2
