definitely! which in my book i no bad thing!!
if im honest i wasnt expecting anything much from this (huge fan of the original so you had something to live up to ) but im so glad i gave it the chance, as this is a really good interpretation, you have definitely put your own mark in there but also stayed true to te original.
the drums as debs said do overtake it a little here and there, but hey, thats industrial for you
a "hearty" well done!
do not!feed the vampyr.

i agree...my mixing and mastering leaves a bit to be desired. tbh though as vurt put it "... but hey, thats industrial for you" is kind of my approach. i def. dont want it to sound polished and perfect. since though a few of you have commented on some of the levels...i will go back and take another look at those.
and just a side note...this track is far more inspired by the live at pompeii version as opposed to the original original one.
thanks again everyone for taking the time to listen and comment.

I think you're diminishing the track with this approach. In my opinion, the drums are obliterating the other sounds and there's too much reverb or echo on everything. The early industrial music of the late 70s was pretty lo-fi but by the mid 80s mixes were often quite polished even if the music was aggressive. The sequencing and sounds on your track are much closer to 80s industrial rather than the 70s.
For example, check out this track "Iceolate" by FLA which has a much faster tempo than your track but has some similar drum sounds. See how well mixed this is.

im not trying to emulate that kind of sound...im just going for that "feel". i certainly appreciate your comment and will look into how to make things clearer without loosing the dirtiness im going for. i definitely dont want one sound to "obliterate" the others...ill have to see what i can do to correct that. firstly ill need to listen to it on a few more systems as it sounds clear here, in my car, and on my phone. lol, all my own things so...i need to listen on other peoples systems.

Yes, I'm familiar with all of those bands. I especially like The Klinik, with Dirk Ivens of Dive, and, of course, Neubauten. I totally understand how difficult it is to improve a mix. I have been fiddling around with the mix of my last song for the last 2 weekends attempting to improve it. I'm just pointing out that I think your track is quite good but could be even better with a clearer mix.
