thx for the feedback. tried out some new compressors (the free antress-collection) in this mix, so i personally think i over-used them, especially on the vocals. in the end i lost my patience and slammed a guitar-amp on the main vox instead of starting over... could have been better indeed. maybe i'll give it another go later. thanks for the tracks.

@loupi There is a lot of control in your mix, both level and frequency-wise. Everything pretty much stays in it's place. That's a good thing. I might have balanced and EQ'ed things differently but that's beside the point. What does irritate me a little though is the vocals. I know they are hard to get right (wrong mic for the singer), but they are very scooped. I think a more balanced spectrum (especially around the mids) would make them sit better, more present and more natural.
