I like the concept of the intro, the whole multi layered, loose and extremely dynamic feeling. But I dislike the actual intro melody.

Verse 1's feeling is a drastic change in pace from the intro which makes it cool. The riff is pretty sick too. Oh and pan the guitars, it makes them more audible individually.

I love the way drums drive and give so much force to the melody in Verse 2 and then you go from a previously hard rock beat to a more metal one.

PreChorus has a lot of tension in it and your chorus is either going to have to top it or resolve it. Personally, I'd go with the latter, but its your choice.

Crit back?
