    Had a fun time trying my hand at this. I normally don’t enter these competitions, but seeing one for 90’s death metal I had to give it a go. Some genera information about the mix:

    • Tried not to modernize it too much, I love 90s death metal for all its flaws
    • Kick replaced with ‘Modern Doom Drums Modern Kick’ from Ugritone
    • Snare blended with ‘Modern Doom Drums Cadeson Studio Snare’ to cover the ring and ping
    • Overheads absolutely mangled in dynamic EQ, kind of acquiesced with what I could get out of them
    • Drum comp mostly on buss to avoid making bleed worse on individual channels, ride was accented by bussing room and overheads to a single channel and, once again, accenting the hits with extreme dynamic EQ
    • Drums manually gated, especially the overheads, room mics mostly used as overheads as the kick/snare content was harsh to my ears
    • Vocals were a breeze, basically a few cuts and they sat perfectly
    • Midrange in guitars was more or less nonexistent, didn’t accent too much of it or try bringing out what wasn’t there, just a few wide and minor scoops around it
    • Minor timing fixes across drums, vocals, guitars – sounds like this was all recorded live and wanted to keep that feeling there
    • Intro line from Hellraiser (2022); Jamie Clayton as The Priest (Pinhead)

    Killer mix. Love the vocal introduction.
    Preserving that vibe with putting each part in your face.

    Nice job. Love the thickness of the Ugritone doom kicks.

    One of the big challenges for me was that fill at 2:27. You reimagined the whole part. Wish I would have thought of that! Cheers!
