Slow down the fast parts. IMHO it's just too fast. The tempo change seems like two songs running into each other unsuccessfully. Otherwise, great job and keep it up. I really liked the second half after the Speed wore off.
The beginning was very In Flames-esque from back in the day and was definitely the best part for me. The main problem that I had with the song was that after the beginning the guitars just kind of ran over each other so the notes weren't very clear.
i dig the changes. i don't know if it's just your recording technique or what, but your playing sounds quite accomplished. i think maybe you need a tone for the soloing that elevates it from the backing track.
