Hey, just looking for input, this is a jam I recorded earlier today around a little bit of a song I've been working on; there's a lot that I didn't put in here, but I wanted to see if anybody dug what I've got so far.

I was trying to write something similar to Obscura/Necrophagist/Cynic (though I don't think the Cynic really shows through).

Here's the link, what do you think? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1nVOLBQ254)

I think you hit the nail on the head with the (except their first album)Obscura/Necrophagist-esque style.

Might just be because there's simple backing tracks (no drums, etc) but the song does sound rather... empty. If you get the chance to record other guitar tracks, throw in some deeper melodies beneath your lead, and this track will come to life. I hear great potential in this... Then again, I'm a huge Obscura fan. :P
