The song modulates a couple of times. At first it's in E minor, then C# minor, B minor... It modualtes many times. You just need to use your ears and hear when it modulates and hear the key center.

Maybe this is not the best backing track to improvise over because it changes a lot. Maybe try improvising over something more simple. Or maybe compose a guitar melody instead of improvising it. And write the melody by using your ears, not just playing random stuff on your guitar. That way you aren't limited by any scales, you can just play any note you hear.

Edit: Actually the intro part is in E major but uses notes borrowed from the parallel minor (just couldn't hear whether it was E minor or major by just listening to the guitar parts, I needed to listen to the original song).

Just remember that there are no boring scales, just boring players.
