    Firstly I didn't think the ensemble played together very well. I'd like the guitars and drums to be more tight, quite simply.

    Also, maybe the resolution wasn't as good, but I thought the guitars were kind of flat or dull. How were they recorded? Maybe try to tweak them a little, I'm thinking especially on the high end, to give them more sonic character and make them sound more agressive.

    Apart from that, there're some really nice parts in it!

    Hey Christian, thanks for the feedback, i'm not happy either with the guitar playing, but thats what i have to work with. Was thinking myself that they need more on the hi end, will do something about that....thanks...

    I'd maybe try to do something about the drums as well. Make them sound bigger - if you have the opportunity, maybe replace the snare drum with a bigger sounding snare? Or somehow give it a little more middle?
