My 2nd Time Mixing Metal, What Do You Guys Think?

So i played around with this song, and mixed 4 different variants of it to get a feel of what i wanted it to sound like.

Just wanted to see if you guys could take a listen to it and let me know if they sound good or bad.

Let me know if they are:

A. Horrible, and need to start over.
B. Decent, but needs tweaking here, and there
C. Good, and tweaking isnt really needed, or may not be very beneficial.
D. Really good, and no tweaking needed.


thanks guys!

I like 7 the most but the vocals need to come down a bit or bring everything
else up behind it. I'm on vacation so that's the best I can tell you atm.

Are you using a techno keyboard snare?

Here for the gear
 

I agree that snare sounds very mechanical. It doesn't sound natural at all.

Man.. That snare is F**ed up! :P
But I think the whole drum kit sounds to mechanical, the toms especially.

Then the whole mix sounds more like 4 different instruments just put togheter. Need to work on them blending in to each other in a better way.
