While it's not metal,This lady on Craigslist was looking for somebody to mix her album for free and I told her that I would try. I was up front and honest with her about me being an amateur audio idiot..But that I would give it my best shot.

I just feel you learn by doing and while somebody with better gear and experience could do a better job. I think it came out alright.
Reverb can be messy stuff. Singers keep wanting more and more of it lol..same with compression..I used very light compression on it. anyways check it out.

oh yeah she sent me the stems to the song but the music"piano&drums" was a prerecorded track so I couldn't really turn down the bass drum with out effecting the piano track..mostly I just added the reverb to the main vocals and blended the backing vocals.

It's alright. Around 2 mins the background vocals are pretty loud.

yep they do get more dynamic lol..I'm through mucking with it..It still needs to be mastered and they will probably dial it back down. You can over analyze something too much where you reach the point of diminishing returns.

I've messed up a lot of songs by adding too much compression crap like that. I think I
better stop besides my ears are fried from fooling with it...It was fun though.
