Default New Track - Hideaway

Another track with my neighbor OT handling the vocal duties. I'm in the process of relocating my studio and the monitors are currently not ideally placed, doubt im getting an accurate picture while mixing. Any thoughts appreciated

Only two nits: vocals more upfront/in yo face, and I couldn't tell there was a bass guitar until around the 2 min mark. But when I did hear it, it sounded great. Other than those, I thought it sounded nice n' big.

No. And it's not in the junk mail either. When did you send it?

hey Erik,

enjoyed this!

OT's really nailin' it...

guitars are massive.. working really well.

if i was your producer... here's what i say (for whatever it's worth...)

i think you've got a really unique and killer vibe going here - but you have to bring your game up on your rhythm section (bass/kit), especially those drums. you've got all this energy emanating from the vocals and guitars - and not an equal amount from the rhythm section. i can just feel the energy waiting blow, but it can't completely until there's something really churning in the rhythm section. You need Tommy Lee and Billy Sheehan my friend. That simple!

Keep at it brother! It's a great vibe you got going there. Unique, interesting!
Hard to come by these days! You just need to add a little more MOJO to those drums and bass. Good luck!!

If you wouldn't mind Swami I'd like to pick your brain a little further. So with Tommy Lee and Billy currently working at Wal-Mart I need to try and get this myself(tall order)
So are you suggesting the arraignment and performance of the current bass guitar and drums aren't cutting it ? Or is it the mix of these instruments ? Or possibly all of the above ? Im not offended or anything close to that, just want to be sure I'm following the bread crumbs you're leaving as I respect your opinions.

Little clarity ?

Thank you bud

I agree on the vocals and some de-essing is needed, but.....
Damn HEAVY!!! Those guitars!!!
I'm not a metal dude, but this sounded very commercial in the good way.

Thanks msundh !!

Will try some de-essing as suggested.
Thanks for the input

Taking the things mentioned above in consideration I

De-essed the vocals
and
attempted to pump up the bass and drums some

Here it is:
