I'm about releasing our debut full-length for my black metal band Dark Promise . I have 2 finished songs so I was wondering if you could give me your opinions

If I were to score it in a review, you'd probably get a solid 7 from me. This isn't too shabby to be honest - although based on the two songs I listened to on your RN website all I can say is that the music is incredibly simple.

Really strong vocal work. I'm just not really enticed by the guitars. Or the drums. I'd say a more raw production would suit this sound better to be honest. With such a strong focus on minimalism it seems contradictory to have such a sharp sound, being that there isn't really a need for the listener to focus in on each individual instrument.

I think The Menace of our Lord is quite good, but needs much more distortion and the cymbals far higher in the mix and equalizer for them set to more high frequency sound
well written song anyways, vocals fit it perfectly but should be slightly lower in the mix

The Mysterious Dawn is not close enough to what i like to listen to for me to comment on it, i can"t give you tips for that

Maceration is also a well written song, but the production makes it terrible
for drumming and rhythm guitar i can copy the advice "needs much more distortion and the cymbals far higher in the mix and equalizer for them set to more high frequency sound" and add that the rhythm guitar needs to be far higher in the mix
the clean melodic guitar mixed so high completely ruins the song, you should turn it down very much as soon as the rest kicks in

anyways congratulation on what you managed to do so far

Well, many thanks for the advices but as a matter of fact I didn't mix the tracks myself because I don't have the proper knowledge for mixing/mastering and that's why I've written "Writing Music" in the title because it's music which I'm offering and not mixing techniques .

Regards and thanks for the understanding .
