here's one of the songs we performed. people were saying the guitars were too loud and blaming me for it but i couldn't hear myself at all during the show and watching our set again i can't hear myself so it was our other guitarist, lol. i'm the one on the right, by the way. what do you guys think?

The problem I hear is that you are on a small tight stage and there is way to much cymbal bashing. The top end is polluted with the constant ringing of cymbals, so you can't hear anything else in the top end - the vocals are totally masked and you can't make out the vocalist at all.

In close quarters drummers have to excersise control and keep a handle on their volume, which is not a very easy thing to accomplish for allot of players.
