Thanks for sharing.  First off, the performances were top-notch!  Drum
timing / guitar chugging / and most importantly, the vocals sounded well,
done too!  Good job on the performances.  The recording and mixing, on the
other hand, could use some help.  The drums sound flat and lifeless (which
is a shame, because the performance of the drummer was *awesome*!) -
especially the snare.  It's almost non-existent.  It should be much more
present.  The guitars kind of sound a bit dull.  It's almost like the
higher freqs of just about everything was EQ'ed down.  (like, say 5k and
above??)  It could also use mastering.  The levels are very low.

Again, thanks for sharing!  Hope that was helpful.
