Play this song 150% speed and tell me if you like it. I think rock does not sell on Audio Jungle.

Why should anyone do such a strange thing?

For me, some of your tunes seem too repetitive. I gave you an idea on how you as the creator of your songs can get to see the obviously bothering repetitiveness of your sounds.

songs sounds a little muddy and noisy too me, it sounds like your going for a punkish sort of sound but it could still be cleaned up a bit on the high end. Experiment with some EQs and panning some of your items to give your mix a little more room. You’d probably find a lot of tips in this video series useful – http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0A5D662058525F1C&feature=plcp

Hi, man, really appreciate your help!
I’m afraid of reducing too much of high mids, ‘cause don’t want to lose that crunchy sound I like. ) Also don’t want to lose energy by cutting some in bass area. But may be the surgically-narrow cuts could do the trick… Thanx again!

Hello,

I also would like to help, I agree a bit with the colleagues that it is more a question of many repetitive things and not so much about the mix itself. If you want to play with the mix, you should eq the guitars differently, than play with panning. And if I am honest, I would work on the drums, the pattern is repeating million times, could be more inventive, even the sound of the snare could be much better. I was honest, and would like to help, so don’t get me wrong :)

Yes, man, you’re right about the drums. It’s always a tough stuff for me ) For the guitars, yeah, I usually have several tracks with their own EQ and panning sets.
I’m glad you share your opinion. I’d like to have some criticism, ‘cause reviewers usually don’t give you any hints about what’s wrong with your music. Well, except for sir Andy Slatter )
