I was actually listening to Symphony X when I saw this, so I suppose my criticism is accurate as it'll get for me.

The main thing I noticed was the drumming was just a bit soft honestly compared to most symphonic bands. The guitar at the begging and the pause later on at around 1:10 was actually pretty well timed I thought, it does get a feel like them to a extent. A bit repetative too, though it wasn't that bad.

Pretty good song honestly though. Good job. Above is just what I thought in comparison to symphonic bands.
hey thanks for giving it a listen. Yeah Im using a drum machine and im not the best at sequencing for it haha, ive been trying to get it a bit heavier
