Re: Stan_Halen: FIRE INSIDE my Soul, the Agony and the Ecstasy!
Very different approach to what I have heard so far. So far the mix seems to be pretty much based towards the center. Given the sheer number of harmony guitar tracks, I would look to spread the mix a little more during various stages. Very interesting vocal effect, like a minor flanger or something? It works pretty well in the verses, I like how subtle it is. Nice snare and kick sound and the bass is fitting in pretty well.
The vocals feel a little dark or perhaps low mid heavy compared to the rest of the mix. I'd look to scoop some of that boxiness out, spread the guitars so that it does not compete and perhaps add a little more ambiance to the snare to have it sit a little better (in regards to perceived space) with the vocal.
Guitars sound pretty energetic. I like how you've used the artificial harmonic guitar part (which I found hard to balance). I also really like your tom sound, I just wish they were spread some more so I could do an air drum roll across the speakers! Nice one.
Rules do not belong in music. Like food, there are flavours that work well together, but in the end, it's each person's taste that determines the quality of the meal.
