it's crunchy, isn't it? Did you use a lot of saturation?

The one thing that comes to my mind when listening to it is: there is too much "smack" on the drums. Kick and snare really jump in certain areas. Lot of beater on the kick and a tubby-ness to the snare. It's a little unnatural in my opinion. Doesn't suit a live recording really well. There might be too much eq and too much compression on those in particular.

I like the vocals. But overall the mix is a little dry and it's especially apparent on the vocals.

If you like, you can hav a listen to my version and we can have a conversation. I'm no authority and still in a learning precess as well Smile

Cheers, Stefan

I think our mixes and ideas are just totally different.Be a boring world if every mix was the same .
Everyone likes different things,there is no perfect snare or kick its all preference

Hey Takka, nice mix you got here. It feels very smooth and nice chrunsh and punch in the mids. Only thing i think is that i feel its a tiny bit to vintage, atleast in the vocals where it feels a bit nasal and boxy, other then that really nice mix.
