This is my first attempt doing death metal song, this is kinda Obituary influenced, I need your opinions on everything, I didn't take a lot of time mixing, just set guitar tone and some eq.

Why so much symphonics in it?

overall it's pretty good more grit to the guitars would be awesome and up a bit more in the mix.

It's just some keyboards to back up guitar chords, but they ended up louder than I intended to, anyway I can fix/remove them, I've got the idea of the keyboard from Bloodbath's "The Ascension" .

Had a bit of a Bloodsoaked feel to it. If it were me, maybe give the guitar some extra distortion, with the drumming a more Mortician sound(like Hacked up for barbeque, or primitive brutality).

Thanks, actually I always prefer low gain with mids to make the guitar cut through without being too loud, but yeah I'll try the other option High gain with more bass and treble with less mids maybe it has better sound :)

I like it, I feel the tone could have had a better punch around the part at 3:00 though

I think it rocks, I like the mix aside from the vocals, they could be compressed a bit more. The keys/synths don't sound bad, I don't think they're too loud at all.

You sound like Killjoy from Necrophagia, seasons of the Dead album

This is heavy man, I like your guitar tone a lot.
when you do vocals, I would say record them louder into the mic with the mic at lower volume and they'll sound stronger.
Then you can always put them back at a lower volume during mixing. Just don't peak ha.
