Metalcore Production Help Needed

I posted in here a few months ago and you guys helped me loads then, but now I'm back and I need help again. My set up is pretty crappy. Everything is DI'd, the drums are fake and I have no vocals. Though I do run my guitars back out through a valve amp through a dummy load these days. This signal is then put through a set of amp impulses as I only have a little valve practise amp and can't mic it up... it'd sound terrible.

I need help on how to "open up" this mix I guess, it sounds a little to dense for me; but at the same time I feel the guitars sound a little puny. I've included bellow links to a Mastered version (ozone modified preset) and a un-masted one.

well what exactactly are you using to convert to digital and record it.. Is it on a multi track stand alone, a computer with an interface using software ect?

What do you mean?

I'm using a Line6 UX1 into REAPER if that helps.

I meant exactly that... Sorry if I was unclear...

The program you are using is great and the way you explained your set up makes a lot of sense but what I would recommend using is a different interface. Check out this one, its pretty affordable and has really nice pre-amps: PreSonus AudioBox USB 2X2 USB Recording System: Shop Pro Audio & Other Musical Instruments | Musician's Friend

The Line 6 interface is decent but the analog to digital conversion rates are not as nice as the interface I showed you. Thats mainly my opinion and to each their own but I would say look into using something different that converts analog to digital at a higher rate.

As much as I would love to splash out on a higher quality DI box I'm a student at the moment and money is pretty tight.
