Holy Metallica batman! (That's a good thing!!!).
As soon as your mix powered up, all I could hear was good old 'tallica rippin it up!
As usual, this is one well balanced mix! Everything is fitting perfectly. Did you grab different chorus vocals to make doubles, or is that an effect? I'm guessing the former.
That instrumental reduction arrangement (I hope you know which bit I mean) where there are minimal instruments and that crystal clear vocal, that bit is amazing. Not too sure how you thought of doing that because I sure as hell didn't see it coming.
In fact, listening again, there is lots to like in regards to arrangement here!! It's just a very interesting, yet loyal mix.
I'm 50/50 on the brightness of the guitars.... On third listen now and I am very conscious of it, but at the same time it seems ok. The verses, to me, seem a little more abrasive than the choruses and I think it is mainly due to that artificial harmonic guitar. I found it a bit distracting when mixing, and i think it pushes that element of your mix over the edge.
Other than that, I can't fault this and the feel is absolutely what this song should be about! 5 from me, well done!
