Completed this one recently as well.
As a contrast to the Sweet mix, I really struggled with this one and I feel like it shows. I think part of the problem was over-thinking it and trying to do more than was necessary (more is more right???), which is certainly a weakness I have. This was a competition mix too so it was kinda easy to get into my own head about making it as good as possible. In the end I was fighting with a lot of aspects, and my ears were burned out from spending too much time on it… and just got it to a place where I thought it was listenable then submitted it.
Now that I’ve prepared you for a disaster take a listen!
A little extra info. The band is Funeral For A Friend. Song is called Serpents in Solitude. I reamped the main rhythm guitars through my Mesa Dual Rectifier being boosted by a Highwind Amplification Direwolf pedal and run through an IR of a Marshall/Diezel cab mix.
