mixing heavy rock

hi im a composer i ussually do orchestral hybrid stuff but now im recording a hard rock demo and im tired of spending countless hours of equing panning compressing etc...i really need some advice,the thing im having a hard time is getting the guitar and the bass to work together like i want them to,here are some references of what im looking for:
Blue Stahli- Scrape Instrumental - YouTube


Blue Stahli - Give Me Everything You've Got - YouTube


my sound is based on heavy riffs and grooves i love how the guitars and bass sound in these two examples and it would be a great starting point here is a raw mix

i would really apreciate any advice on how to get that sound or even close

Really just depends on what you have available to you! High gain amps, and (you'll hear this a lot) make sure the parts are performed really well and tight. If you had some sort of reference track of what you've done that would be better.

i use logic pro 9 and i use vandal amps for guitars and bass and superior drummer 2.0, i record at home so its not viable to use amps, do you want me to post one of my tracks with a simple mix and you can help me out?

First thing, remove your reverbs. Try and get your mix punchy and full sounding, then once you have that foundation start introducing reverbs/ambience cautiously. Get that guitar more stereo and edgy sounding.
