hi, new to this forum.

Im a guitarist who has been in a good few metal bands of various types so not a beginner. But im currently working on a new project by myself and am looking for some decent feedback if you folks can help.

Here are 2 tracks, rough mix. Vocals and backing vocals to go on but music mostly done, some parts of drums needing tweaked etc and some slight changes but 90% finished music wise

firstly. structure. Is is too hashbash or am i getting the right balance. Ie, being interesting but not too random?
secondly. Mix. What do you think? any changes

Getting a very good growling vocalist to come in and lay down vocals and ill do backing. drums are programmed and need some work with the EQ.

thanks much appreciated.

Hi there, I like the sound. The first track has a break into a different beat at about 3:00. The sound is quite different than the rest of the track. It may be by design, but my comment would be that it does not seem to fit in this track. Not that it is a bad riff, but the sound is quite different. Overall, sounds good though. I am working on a similar project and know the difficulties of mixing and sound quality.
