Alright, whatever works for you. Boomy? Something's not proper wth your recording, then. I love some thick distortion on the whole thing, not just a hi-passed version. I love the slabby, grimey feel...

This is not cool.
At least offer your fans a copy of the record if they donate $10+. I'm all for pre-orders like that, but this is just ridiculous.

Yeah, I find it pretty muddy, which is weird since the guitars definitely calls for a more high-end pronounciated mix to make the later chug driven parts pop a bit more.

There you go. It is being played alongside the unchanged track, hence the usage of the word "parallel". When used with compression, it's also known as New York Compression and is a classic technique...

An insert effect would be simply connecting the effect straight up on the channel, so that it effects that channel...

Don't put a stereo widener on the master. Never. You can use it on buses, though. Multi-band compression should also be avoided on the master, go for proper bus compression instead and then just use...

That's not really enough, though.
Don't be a douche. If people want to bring lights and stuff - let them do it.
