    I like all four of those songs you have on there. I only have a couple issues with the mixing. I'm by no means any sort of an expert though. I think the vocals are just a tad too loud. There's a lot of interesting stuff going on with the guitars and the drums, but I have trouble hearing it sometimes. Another thing, which maybe is just because it's streaming over myspace, is that I can't hear any seperation between the instruments. It sounds like everything is panned directly to center.

    Besides those two qualms I really like it. Your singer can actually still sound intelligible while screaming his head off. That's pretty impressive in itself.

    I agree; vocals are too high in the mix to really make anything out, musically. The drums are clicking and the guitars are buzzing. I really can't make out what's going on in the song other than the tempo and the vocalist doing his thing.

    Remix, and maybe I could give you some actual constructive criticism.

    I agree, the vocals are a little too high. But my major gripe is the tone of the guitars. Its just bleh, I dont know if its the mics we used or if the guitarists tone on their amps are just crappy. We recorded and mixed these ourself, hopefully we can get professional recording soon.
