Default does anyone want to help me master?

hey guys, my band released a demo about a month ago.. its a rough cut and the tracks can be heard here (www.myspace.com/l3percon)


bassicaly, i have some editing software on my computer that can do somewhat fancy things. and the guy we recorded with is swamped and were outta cash to pay for it.


does anyone want to help me master? or guide me along the way.

anyone has any questions let me know, i can send tracks via email etc etc.

and im not asking you to do it for me. just either help me, give me some ideas. or add something of your own if youd like


Dom

You're probably going to hate me for saying this but i would say bring the drums down in the mix just a little bit. not a whole lot, but just enough to make room for the other instruments. And I would say bring the guitars and vocals up a notch while focusing on equalling out the guitars as best you can.

good luck

bring the drums down, bring the other instruments up, then normalize it all.
also the cymbals seem to have a lot of high-end to them, perhaps pull down the upper end eq on them.
Also, I feel like theres something lacking. I can't say for sure, but I'm not feeling enough separation between the parts, and I think you could do well with some reverb on the snare especially, perhaps a light gate. also, the tracks sound exactly like they were all close-mic'd or direct outs; i'd suggest a master reverb send, and play around with various effects on the vocals.
