One part of the problem is also the dynamics of your rhythm guitars. Compress them a little more at least in the choruses to keep them consistently more upfront. The guitars are partially overlapping with bass frequencies, both fight each other. So another step in the solution is to lower the bass volume just a little and make sure that the bass is consistently in the mono middle, a mid/side EQ could help in this case. After that you might need to boost your rhythm guitars somewhere between 1-2 kHz, attenuate the area below that range and also add some air to them.
