    You need to EQ all the mud out of the vocal - it's not the effect (no issues with your use of effect here) but it sounds like it was recorded in a paper bag. What mic did you use and what pre-amp interface for it. I like the guitar. But the vocal and guitar together sound like two different tracks mixed by different dudes on different sessions so the cohesion is lacking.

    ok finally someone who doesn't mind the vocal distortion haha. How hard should I cut the vocal mud?

    I used an SM58 and a focusrite 2i2.

    So the next question would be what's your playback system (how are you mixing this?) Headphones? Speakers? Room? I'd start playing around with an good eq/filter and experiment.... Do you see/hear how the two elements (guitars and vocals) just don't mix together very well ?--- when the vocal comes it it's like dropping a heavy bag of sand on the mix....
