I'm on headphones now but its balance seems good. My only comment would be as master though it sounds it can translate well on other systems, its sort of dull/cold sounding in general. Brightening up the M (mid/side) can work but if possible passing though some hardware might be better.

Nice mix & sounds, good performances too. Referencing it against a similar style mix, the final product could do with a little more "air" & "sparkle", though. Nice Job.

Thanx for the comments i really appreciate it !!!
So it seems brighter is the way to go right ?
Most people prefer a warmer mix but i guess it depends on the type of music !!
So if you guys think my mix would be better brighter ill give it a try
thanx !!!!

Yeah the style suits loud mastering but just subtle brightening, you can do this ok with any min phase eq.

Widen the stereo on the chorus and allow the verses to go a little quieter maybe as well. The chorus didn't "pop"

Sounds great. Only suggestion I have, is that the Chorus doesn't grow or get any bigger... It's kind of just the next part, so to speak. Maybe some power chords, some layering and some kind of chorus/widening would make the Chorus POP?..

Great job!

The production is great. If I would change a thing this would be the loudness and rms relationship of the mix/master. Would be more "easy" in the db because I feel this song is a part of the "loudness war". It still has dynamics but it would have a lot more with a more calm mix with plenty of headroom for mastering.
Great either way.

yeah i know its loud !!! The band kept insisting on having it that loud !!!
I myself prefer warmer and dynamic mixes !!! It was a challenge mastering
the whole album !!! Hopefully bands will get more educated and learn that mastering it loud isnt always a good thing !!
Thanx !!!
