Intro was really interesting, and nice. The heavy part was nice, but you need to work on the drums. 4/4 5/8 part was really good. Next part was good, except for the tremolo picked open 6th. Solo was nice, but same goes here for the rhythm. You have to finish this piece.

The 5/8 bar irks me. I can't feel a flow with it. :p:
I have no problems with the rest. It's solid.

I agree with Ctb... The 5/8 part feels out of place.. But you could be going for that.

As far as everything else.. It sounds very nice. Finish it up. :]

Be honest, when you were writing the riff you didn't work it out to be 5/8 and then 4/4... man, I hate it when people just throw in random time sigs. Don't get me wrong, I love odd time signatures and changes, but when you can tell it's just thrown in there... it just sounds cheap.

And don't take that bad, the rest of the song was awesome. I don't like metalcore, but this was 5 star. Lots of interesting ideas that you wouldn't usually find within the genre...

Bar 38...

Fix the 5/8 part and it'll be fine. I love irregular time signatures, but that just doesn't fit.

Much better.
Also, did you add on to the end? I don't remember that breakdown part... But it's awesome. VERY VERY good transition back into the riff after it. And I loved the dip on that one note. Excellent.
