This is a really interesting piece... Your playing is tight and pretty impressive, so kudos there. I suppose the only real criticism that I have regarding the piece is the sound of the snare. It just seems too digital? It's hard to explain, but the MIDI sound of it just takes away from the attack of the whole song. What plugin are you using? I've been battling with EZDrummer for a while, so I understand the frustration of trying to make them sound more realistic.

Also, I liked the clean picked part in the background around the 0:59 mark. I think it would've sounded a bit better if it was more pronounced in the mix and brought to the front a bit.

Overall, it's a really interesting tune and the transition between sections is flawless. I'm still relatively new to the world of mixing metal so if you could crit a piece that I'm working on then I would greatly appreciate it.

Very interesting indeed, it has a very cool atmosphere. And it's damn tight! As charger356 said though, the drums don't sound that great, very digital. I didn't really mind though, the guitars are awesome, but because of the digital drums and the tight guitars it almost sounds like an electronic song. I liked that little thing around 1:58. Overall great stuff.
