    Since no one dared answer, here's my thoughts :

    This style is really not my cup of tea, since it's more about shouting and protesting than sharing a story on a melody. But I respect the choice, taste is our own and defines who we are.

    Since I'm a drummer I couldn't past the fact that some timing between the guitar and drum (possibly the bass too) are off. I don't know if it's a real drummer, some loops or samplers, but if it's a drummer, going back to a click track from time to time is important and it's a must when recording. I'm still doing it after 28 years of playing with many shows per years and many recording sessions. The click is my friend !! :).. I always make things clear with my band members and in all the contracts I worked on, I'm the one to be followed and not the any other way around. And more, I never play my most complicated part live or in studio, when it counts, I play safe. When ever I'm working on a new complicated groove, I keep it to myself until it's easy enough to be played with no mistake. (even if a girl remove her shirt in the audience.. hihi) ;)

    Back to the taste part : I'm currious how your song would be with a melodic part in the vocal, maybe a halftime bridge or something and possibly with vocal harmonies.

    The first few seconds I thought, hey, this sounds like it might be cool and then the bass and vocals happened. facepalm I turned it off and cannot comment on the mix, sorry.
    What are you doing or thinking to make music so out of time like this would be my first question? Is this what you are intending?

    If your music is more in time, things sit in the mix better. You know this right?

    again, as a musician first and a record making person second, i just can't get past the performance and the material / content to comment on the mix. the best i could offer is it needs more "cowbell".

    really, if you can't find bands to record that can actually write and play well, perhaps that says something about your abilities? maybe you don't know / hear the difference. you willingness to overlook these most important factors of foundation, despite being told repeatedly elludes to the notion, you don't have a clue.

    but i do have one question ... on your soundcloud page there's a picture of two guys sitting on a couch. is either one of them you?

    I don't have a problem with recording bands that suck.

    Music and mixing share a common math. If music is out of time and out of tune, the mix doesn't blend either. Do you understand this?

    You are asking how your mix sounds in a pro audio recording community. Pro's makes sure the art is prepared well before we begin the process.
    Why you ask?
    There becomes a point no one can get past go with you because you are missing the fundamentals that make great sounding music. When you ask how a mix sounds, we can only comment up to a point.

    Mixing music should include music that is ready to be mixed. Yours isn't ready. The art form is keeping us for helping you beyond this. Up your art form and we will gladly be able to help you more.

    Thanks.

    Well, I think he would turn over if he knew his voice was being included with suck howdy: As in, 6 ft under.



    Anyway, we are trying to help you. .

    I'm going to lock this one because the issues have been addressed. Continued discussion on this will lead nowhere. Please take these comments and get back to us when you have addressed the timing issues.

    Cheers!
