Wow man, you've got great guitar skills. For how long have you been playing . Your playing is realy amazing. Your guitar tone is really good too, what is your amp ? The drums are a bit repetitive, and I think the bass drum is not enough loud. But anyway it's just the drums, the guitar playing really blows it away lol. The riffs are cool too, they have kind of a happy/funny feel lol.

So finally I would say it is very cool =P

I have a toneport too but I used Guitar rig 3, i didn't think my toneport could sound like that 0_o LOL. I've been playing for 5 years too but I'm far from this level lol, I know lot of theory and I can play lot of scales/arpeggios from any position, but I can't shred like this lol.

Did you use the basic presets of Gearbox or you bought a pack?

I like it, all the sounds flow well together. It just feels like it would go great with some lyrics

Oops I just listened to the Day of the Beaker. I liked a lot of it, although it started getting repetitive.

Cowbell. It sounded cool, again. The only thing I dislike is that the mood seems to be the same throughout all of the song. Maybe words could help with that? I'm not entirely sure...
