Modern Meral Production

Evan Collins on SoundBetter

I'll keep it simple, I want to mix your music to the modern standard set by bands like ERRA, Invent Animate, Humanity's Last Breath, and Thrown.

I am a musician and mixing engineer based in Texas. I will mix modern metalcore, prog-metal, and thall, similar to the styles of Invent Animate, Humanity's Last Breath, Vildhjarta, ERRA, and Spiritbox. I'm looking forward to working with you, contact me with any questions or for more examples of my work.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
