That wasnt half bad, man. This would be perfect if it wasnt for two things. 1) The beginning sounded a bit flat when it came to energy and overall crunch -- unless that was on purpose in order to contrast the beginning with the end. And 2, which is my personal musical preference,) the bass and rums could have been bumped up a few notched to really cover the lower endd of the song. Other than that, it sounds nice and i would mind jamming out to this while working.
Keep it up man. You got something going here.
I think one of the main reasons that the end sounds like it has more energy is because of the lead guitar playing from the bridge and on. The rhythm stays the same volume throughout the song so maybe I could do some mixing to bring the rhythm up in parts with no lead. As for the drums and bass, the bass can be brought up louder and rounded out for more low-end, but the drums had to be lowered because they were almost at a distorting point.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
