A fantastic idea garbled together with the execution. The vocal filters and mixing are completely muddying the sound and soaring above the rest of the track in an unpleasant way. Generally, I adore screaming, but I can hardly understand it at all. Sometimes it sounds like holding a microphone in a wind tunnel.
Thanks for the tips :D I have lots of practice to do with these vox, will definitely be trying other approaches in the future!
It sounds like the compression on the guitars is too hard, too heavy. I'd back up on that a little and turn up the volume ont he guitars. It sounds like everything is being smashed together in the mix except for the drums, those sound clear. The bass is alright too. As for the vocals, I can't understand a thing being said and it sounds garbled. I usually like screaming but....this sounds not well executed in my opinion. The mixing on the vocals really overpowers the rest of the instruments and needs to be mixed differently so it blends with the rest of the song with the right volume, sounds too present, the mixing is too high in the mids and whatever filter is being used is messing with it.
The riffs and overall melody of this piece, not bad, but the guitars need to sound more present and panned out in the mix. Overall I think the vocals kill this piece, and if the issues instrumentally were fixed,this has potential to be a decent metal track, with the current riffs and so on so such. Great drum work and guitar work by the way.
Instrumentally with the issues fixed this would be a better track, mostly it's the mixing that's the issue here, and the vocals. But great job on the instruments, it does fit the picture.
Thanks so much for the detailed review! Still have a long way to go working with vocals for sure, looking forward to trying a new mix with your advice in mind :D
