This song had challenges for me. Thrash and metal are not in my wheelhouse. But the challenges were fun and the recording and performances good.

What I attempted to do was to squarely delineate verse from chorus which was easy based on the content. Getting each section to work together took some effort especially as I wanted the song to have a start and then go somewhere which I tried to do with my automation. There is a good amount of mid-side processing on instrument busses and a good bit of widening in mastering.

This first mix is not loud.  Not in the beginning. The mix comes in at -14 LUFS with peaks at -0.5 or there-abouts. Standard streaming levels.  Don't be afraid to turn it up.


Mix well and Mix often
