even though this is a primarily metal song, i just wanna say that i wrote it while listening to tons of jazz haha. i'm not sure whether i want to extend it or if i should just keep it at a short length. any input would definitely be appreciated, also c4c

There's really not much that sounds like jazz in that at all.

Not very constructive feedback here, I know, but I loved it; it was exactly the kind of stuff I've been (unsuccessfully) trying to write for the past few weeks.
The length isn't a problem, I think as it is it sounds complete at that length, but you could quite easily add more instrumentation/melodic ideas and extend it into a much longer, progressive piece.

I'm studying jazz in school right, along with classical music. You can definitely hear elements of metal in jazz and especially classical. I can def. hear some jazz in parts of this. That's exactly the kind of music that I am working on right now. Good job.

The early riffs do remind me of the jazz "comping" style that bassists use, nicely incorporated!

not generic for the genre, pretty cool, but WTF with djentish part!!! (it might be guitar pro anyways)

but i think the ending is just not it...

but you made a good job, 7.5/10

Only part I really liked was the outro. It reminded me a lot of Within the Ruins.
