i don't know what goal you were trying to achieve, but as you are asking what to think; i will be trying to elaborate my adaptive opinion according to this style, to my ear the drums are barely audible, totally lacking of dynamics and presence. Knowingly, it is very difficult to reach good results of "good sounding drums" using such sampled drum kits, still you could have much better results by applying some maximizer filter and a bit of compression or limiting. If you are looking to have a more "live like" drums sound, i would recommend using EZ Drummer for example, in order to get something decently sounding, something close to a real drummer. The guitar tone is not that bad, but to me it sounds a bit thin and flat, depends on your preference.. but i would have put some really fat metal distortion on this but still there could be a better result, even using the same tools you did. Voice is ok.. and finally, where is the bass?

Hey,

Those guitars do need something to thicken them up (maybe they lack too much low/ mids? You're gunna have to experiment.)

The bass needs more bass and try to change the drum sound as well (EZDrummer is a good choice- If you mix that like a real drumkit then you get a nice sound outta it.)

The only other thing I would say if that's a problem is try compressing the drums that you already have, layering more redrum sounds to thicken (nothing obvious though, just subtle additions to the overall drum sound)
