Although the singing itself is not bad, I kind of feel that the mixing is a bit iffy. Even with my professional sound equipment, it feels like your voice is drowning in all the other sounds, so it becomes hard listening to it. What program/programs did you use when making this?

I have to agree. The mixing is not soo good, but your voice is very beautiful!
I don't hear that kind of music, but I think your voice would suit symphonic metal very well!
(Of course it suits ballads, too)

Ah, okay. Well, I have not used Audacity for ages (I'm an Adobe Audition user, myself), but remember that you need to make sure that the reverb should not make the voice feel echoey, but enhance it (don't go overboard with it, that is). When I use Audition, I use a so-called "bus" where I direct my recording to this channel, which I then put reverb on. I don't know if it's possible in Audacity, but if such a feature does not exist, I think if you copy your vocal recording into a new channel and adjust the reverb there, it should almost work the same way (not entirely sure, though).
Also, before adding any reverb to your mix, you must first compress and edit the raw recording so it feels clean, crisp, and makes your vocals pop out in a good way (everything before adding the reverb must not produce any unwanted echo, noise, or unpleasant sounds from your vocals to be a good mix). Then you can add the reverb. That will make your recording sound much better.
Still, I would suggest looking into another editing program like Audition. It's a huge improvement over Audacity and gives you pretty much everything you need to edit and produce good vocals with.
Hope that helped, at least.
