    Going for a faster/harder sound with a bit of industrial influence. Some headbanging DnB.

    C&C is appreciated! Trying to work on my mastering mostly.

    "Take My Life" is a headbanger indeed! Initial listen nothing stood out as an issue, though I'd up the sub a bit. Usually vocals are hard to mix in any song and are either noticeably too loud or too quiet and they sit well in this mix - legible yet not dominating (maybe just up them a teeny bit for some more presence). Personal preference, at 2:07 I'd do something like sweep the crunch for effect.

    "After Dark" has a wicked intro and cool sounds. There do seem to be some artifacts in the high end (starts at 0:46); maybe it's some odd interplay with the distorted bass effect and the hats. Some eq-ing and/or panning could help with this.
