    those kicks aren't having the weight (attack and sub) these should have in my opinion. When you do double fast kicks bear in mind these sound too robotic if there isn't involved any velocity changes in the midi.
    Apart from that, the snare and hi hats are quite good thought the whole mixdown could be improved in some ways, for example by bringing the hi hats JUST A BIT in the back, and some of the mellodies too... bass louder!
    =))
    Keep up the good work!!!

    You could use some more freqs on the snare maybe and some sub in the kick. Just let the subbass evade your kick when it hits with a side-chain compressor. With a very fast release, so you barely notice it, that could spice up your drums. Furthermore maybe the mastering could be redone a bit louder? Cheers mate, nice track

    I am not sure how I feel about the snare. I wish it had more crack. I think the kicks sound fine. You should take neominds advice though. I do know how I feel about the song and that it is fantastic. Really nice work.

    This song is really cool, a lot of different aspects. I wish the snare was a bit "snappier", although. Most the other comments covered it, so I'll just say good job! It's good stuff, man.
