    Hi guys,

    it has been a while since I posted a new tune here.
    This one I have been working on for quite some time,
    but this week I threw away about everything and started with a clean slate.


    please share your opinion =)

    nice composition, bit muddy in the mix, too much reverb maybe (for sure on that snare) cheers!

    Thanks a lot for the feedback. I think I fixed the snare and the track in general is a lot better now.
    also the mixdown is less muddy.

    please share your opinion.

    Mixdown is a bit busy , rawness of the track is really nice, sounds very ravey to me :) Keep it up man!

    Thanks horace =)

    I did some remastering and I'm pretty happy with the track right now.
    Dropped it last night and it sounded pretty good and heavy.
    Now all I need is to make it full lenght.

    Any other tips on the mixdown are very much appreciated.

    I said I was pretty happy, but it still sounded like crap tbh.
    Did some remastering again.
    the drums are tighter, and the overall mixdown is better than the previous versions.
    any suggestions to improve the mixdown further?

    Try using four band compression to bring out different elements better. Or you could go back into the mix and remix it if your not happy. I know it sucks but everyone comes up with bad mixes. Mastering does not make a song better. It just enhances the original mix.
