I'm new around here in the slutz domain. I'm 17 and from good ol' FL.

Just looking for some thoughts on the overall vibe of a fairly rough mix i
did today. There's no automation, so you dont have to go into detail about levels.
Just general suggestions for now.

I did the drums, bass, guitars, and most of the leads, so the song is unfinished (missing some leads and vocals)

I used the Focusrite Octopre for just about everything, and digi002 for a couple.

-crappy shure mic kit for kick, toms, and 2 overheads
-57 on snare
-layered some samples on snare and kick (let me know if there are any phase
problems you notice)

-57 on bass and guitars

Used digidesign/bombfactory plug-ins. Joemeek EQ plug-in for most of the tracks.

There's a little EQ and compression on the whole mix.

Your help would be much appreciated!

Just some advice, without even listening, finish the song and come back. I can make a million suggestions, but unless the song is done. none of it could matter...
