I like a bit of metal, and I quite liked this- reminded me of a cross between machine head and slipknot. The guitar riffing is good.

The mix isn't too bad, but to be honest that is not the problem with the track. First of all the intro at 32 seconds is far to long and boring. The non gruff vocals are a bit weak sounding, but the worst part of the track is the drums- please, please record a real drummer to do those parts, it sounds far too machine like and as a result the guitars sound a bit disjointed and musically are just sitting uneasily on top. It does currently not sound like a band which is what it needs to sound like. Also, I echo the above comments about lack of dynamics, just a few seconds of a bridge where the intensity of the track drops, some elements dropping out and thinning for a few seconds to give some real dynamics would help the impact of the heavy sections a lot. Contrast some light with shade!

At the moment the knob is glued to 11 all the way through and that lessens the impact.
