use a good music program like cubase which you can add effect and change levels on each track then mix it until you find a result u like u can pan tracks to left or right if there are two guitars playing harmonies 1 on the right and 1 on the left usually sounds cool. otherwise you could find a professional producer or someone who works in a recording studio to do it for you although they may charge a lot of money.

Mix the way you normally would - start with your drums, get them sounding right, then add in your bass (never mix bass solo, always mix with the band), your guitars, and your vocals. You may or may not prefer to mix vocals before bass and guitar - personal preference. The important elements to a metal track are the kick, the lead guitar, and the vocals, I figure, so those should take precedence, sonically, over the other elements of the music.

There are so many little tricks and tips that's it's hard to go into without knowing what you already know - you need to spend some time googling for information. "mix kick db" and "mix guitar db" has gotten me some good results.

It's important to watch your bass frequencies - bass = mud. Use your panning and EQ wisely to make sonic space for every instrument, but also to highlight the frequencies of each that stand out.
