Mocking sounded polished on the clean parts. I too, have a problem with the heavy guitars and think they should be set back some with just a slight high cut slope, but the riffing is killer.
BTW, I had a Grammy winning producer critique one of my songs last week. He told me I was a "wicked guitarist". Glad my wife was with me because she wouldn't have believed it. He suggested I work on mastering which I know I need to get into next. I don't mean to brag considering the exceptional and far superior talent on here, but I was so excited to hear that being a "young" guitarist. It makes me want to push harder.
