This is a song I wrote about alot of things ive learned by being involved with philosophy in different ways. Its got a really Sabbath/Sleep/Kyuss type of feel (i.e. probably sounds great while stoned, and vocals are slightly distorted and sung really loud ) Its called "The Philosopher's Stone" and its on my profile at:

I like this, in a way it reminds me of Rob Zombie without all the elctro panio stuff, the guitar was planned perfectly, the solos could be a bit cleaner though, and the vocals were just evil. lol. The only thing I think you need to do is make the recording louder, I had to turn everything on max to hear it.
