Bam. I finished listening to the ep. Production sounds great as expected. Music sounds pretty cool. The clean vocals really aren't doing it for me. They are not bad, I just don't like that style of clean singing.

Thanks for sharing.
After a first full listen through I can say this so far:

Production is really nice, altho I have some issues with the snare...seems the snap/attack is a tiny bit off center...effects like that happend when I used heavily compressed samples (some of lasse's for example).
hard to explain, and it also isnt noticable most of the time tho

Music is nice, harsh vocals too but I'm having troubles with the autotuneage going on in the cleans...makes me cringe every now and then.
A bit of a pitty tbh, cause it kind of pulls down everything a level...with stronger cleans it would kick some more ass ;)
Thanks for the kind words and criticisms.

I won't deny that the vocals sound tuned a bit at parts, but I trusted Kyle's judgment on the amount that he tuned them, and it wasn't really an option to re-track the vocals. I don't think they detract from the product, but next time, I'm going to be tracking the vocals with our singer, and things are going to be flawless.
