The guitars are sweet, cut through nicely in the mix, however everything else is struggling to cut through especially the drums. I'm not sure what has caused this, it could be too much compression and or a clash of EQ frequencies. Also I'd try cutting the reverb a bit.
The vox effect is also not helping.

I'd strip everything down, no effects and start mixing with the Drums and Bass, when you can hear everything as clear as possible without one instrument or drum fighting for the their place in the mix, then start adding compression and other effects. you will still need to do finer adjusting once you have added them.

Hope that's helped.

I think the vocals are a little too lost. I like that the vocals are not up front, but I feel like I try focusing too much on what the vocals are. (Does that even make sense?)

Apart from that I thoroughly enjoyed it.

You have a lot of layers in your music...Sounds like you are quite creative in you musical orchestration...I think is Important that you learn about eq placement...That prolly will lead you on the right direction...Now composition and arrangement wise the song is most excellent!

Hey SWORDFISH,

Yes, i admit i was so inexperienced and ignorant regarding mixing at that time { Few years back, more than 8 years}, now im a little more experienced, but not that professional,

but really ill try to avoid all the past mistakes which I've done, and will keep your words { my BAND-AMP, family members} in my head, all and most of the time....

i begun to feel that we are all the same band.

but i hope that you enjoy the music,
and actually this is what i mainly mean, when i ask for peoples opinion on my demo...cause i know that their comments on my sound productions that it SUCKS.


cheers
and till we talk again

love and respect.

Thanks for your comments WAVE 71,

and im glad that you liked the vocals sent that far, but i tell you something,

the reason i buried it that deep was to escape the bad recording quality of my mic )), but i was surprised people liked it that why...so im lucky then.

Thanks MARINO for your comments in general , and especially in this one,

i' m also so thankful for offering your help, which of course ill be in-need for,

yes, exactly as you said, LAYERS, for me music is all about layers, built up in the right places till it gives out that strong one piece building, that's why in studying music, i was so interested in some term called
{ COUNTERPOINT }...

where not only a melody stands upon a rhythm part or section, but a melody stands on another melody, and the outcome will be only ONE theme...i met such arrangements in CLASSICAL music mainly...and i try to compose that why, but it wont be much exiting in Rock or Metal music...so i try to apply it only in small amounts...and of course as much little as my knowledge of it...cause im still learning.


and of couyrse, your words will lead me to the righteous right direction, and i'de like to hear your comments about the equalization frequenices, which i should have applied in one of my songs, this one for instance, and ill remix them upon your direction, and lets see the result, which im sure it will be much way better.


thanks again,
till we talk again
yours

I'm all about weird vocal FX but I think that the vocals distortion really takes away from the song, but I know this is just a demo so you can get away with it.r
