Looking for mix feedback

I posted a new song in my profile, and I'm actually starting to work on improving my mixes... I think this might be one of my better ones. I'd appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.

It's called New 10.17.08

I'll get at listening tomorrow late afternoon. Heading to the lake to cut grass and rake leaves before the snow flies up here.

Pretty solid overall. The drums are very dry to me, I would verb them a tad which can also add a little power.

Also, I did not hear much bass... or something, it just seems a little thin.

sounds pretty raw, i like it.
a little verb on drums would gel it together more.

its is punk though and i like the way it comes across. i think if you go too mad on the verb it will kill that raw punk edge.

sounds sweet though man.

IF you do add any verb on the drums make it a very small room type with not much tail. And keep it really light. I might bring the level of the snare down a tiny bit as well, its a killer snare but is a bit out front.

On the bass thing, I agree it needs to be more present. The guitar tones are killer and nicely pictured in the mix. For the bass, I can't really tell, but try a bit of boost between 900hz and 1200hz, sweep it to find a good thump then narrow the Q down until it is just there. Then maybe a bit in the mid on it to make it have just that little bit of snap.

I'll listen again tomorrow as well.

excellent overall tune. I agree about the low end though. Are you running a sub? Maybe dial it back a bit... judging by the rest of the mix I would say you are not hearing your low end properly... I could be out to lunch though...just that everything else was mentioned already.
For the verb... try doubling up your overheads and nudge them a bit (less than 30 ms). Bring the faders up slowly until you just begin to hear them. Again, just another thing to try.
