Reminds me of marching band for some reason. I had a hard time understanding what you're trying to do here. I think there's too much going on at the same time and the only way I know what to focus on is because the melody is so much louder than anything else. the organ sound is so quiet i just barely know it's there and it sounds like i'm supposed to be paying attention to it. I think the melody could use some direction and/or breathing room. After the song ended i sorta exhaled, like "whoa that was a lot of notes flying by". The mixing could use some attention - the swell at the end is too strong in my opinion. The drums are too quiet throughout as well. The hold at 0:53 is harsh man =)

10-4 is pretty much summing up everybody's songs accurately. :) You've got a smorgasboard of ideas here though, and I think if you put some focus into them it could really turn out well. I liked some of the atmospheric parts like the beginning & the middle, it's a good contrast.
Keep it up :)

you got the ideas, now you just need to elaborate on the technical aspects of music and how to "pull things off".

Agreeing with above :-/ Don't be afraid to repeat sections that work well. Think about building your audience. Drop them to floor then bring them bouncing back up again. Copy your favourite artists directly if you have to. One thing I used to do (and still do) is try and recreate a song I like, as best I can. It plants the seed of creation (which you already have). Keep it up shadowbane (hope none of this sounds patronising, just trying to encourage :):):) )

WHY DO I LOVE THIS!!!! LOL I'm just fascinated by the various stages of an artist's evolution. Your's is an interesting experience mr. Shadowbane.

Put me on an Amusement Park ride with this tune blaring and some acid or mushrooms and I'm good to go.

gotta agree the drums are too loud. you've got some great ideas here, could just do with being more structured/organised imo, could do with more of a recognisable main theme perhaps? gotta agree this would fantastic if under the influence though ;)
