Hi All,

I have been coming to this forum whenever I hit a roadbump and so far I have solved many issues with help from you guys...

Finally I have finished my songs (10 songs) and I wanted to share them with you guys and get some feedback before I start working on new material... (recording, mixing, song quality etc)

Thanks :D

Video is pretty cool and pretty impressive you doing all the parts.
Song is pretty cool, nice guitar solo, mix sounds really good (on my laptop - only thing I can listen with these days). The only critique I would have is that the vocals are off pitch at times, but the style, delivery, recording, of the vocals is spot on. Really nice work overall though (just listened to the one with the video you posted).

Love the video, song is good, vox are rough in spots, but the recording is decent, nice mix.

Though "stratwizard" playing a Paul is just wrong...LOL

Thanks for the feedback :)

However I recently used a service by a site called reverbnation that sends your music out to be critiqued by a bunch of people. What was disturbing about the comments was that there was a noticeable number of comments saying that they were having a hard time hearing the vocals. Since I am inexperienced with mixing I started doubting myself on whether or not I made a mistake when mixing in the vocals...

I guess this is something I should bring up in the mixing forum. I trust the ears of the people on this forum. Have I done something wrong with the vocals in my mix??? Does the vocal levels sound decent for this type of music?

I responded in the other thread you started. But I think the vocals EQ and sound wise are fine. But they could come forward a little bit. Maybe give them a couple dB of gain. I also felt the drums might be fighting with the vocals just a tad, and that the drums could be reduced maybe just a dB or two.

Otherwise, I do not think the vocals are fighting with the guitars or bass, mostly just feel like the snares/hats are fighting with em a little bit maybe around the sibilant range? (somewhere between 5Khz and 8Khz)

But do take my thoughts with a grain of salt, as my room is not the greatest, and I do have a big spike around the sibilant range. I'd love to treat the room, but as my wife and I share it, and it's tiny, there's just no room for panels and such. The bass response in my room isn't as much of an issue, as it takes a cliff dive below 80Hz. But yeah not the greatest listening space. :(

(someday, when we move to a bigger place.....yeah I know, I keep saying this, hah!)
