Thoughts please! I didn't start this with too much in mind, just needed to procrastinate.

I attached a midi file because people tend to have a rough time getting my GP5s. The midis always get cut a little short however...

just listened to the midi, holy ****, I love it man.

That intro is brutal, the riffs are equally awesome.

Great job on the drums btw.

Reminds me of Necrophagist mixed w/ something else.
"Our revenge so everlasting sweet,
Enslave your Children, Behead the weak,
Kill every last Man, Woman and Machine
The cleansing has begun.
Your meek defense is foolish,
we come from the stars a trillion strong."

Your use of harmonies for the main riff is nothing short of epic and the lead licks are all tastefully done. The moment the song started, I knew it was going to be an epic and you delivered. Loving the bass fill in the intro. The only thing I would change would be the last 17 seconds where the solo kicks in, it doesn't seem to fit what's going on with the drums/guitar/bass, I reckon a shreddy scale run or 3 octave arpeggio should do the trick.

Thanks for your crit on mine btw.
