Sounds good to me!

The vocal is quite upfront and sounds separated from the rest of the track. From a recording standpoint, there are a lot of timing issues that need to be corrected not only from the drums but also the vocal.

The drums sound a little sterile. For a nu-metal song like this they need to be much more impactful. Linkin Park would be a good reference. The bass sounds fits quite nicely in the track, but at times overwhelms the track.

I would say to work on leveling the different instruments properly and to watch out for a lot of upper mid buildup (1k and up).
