It's good

Real good

But I think you need more inspiration

More drive behind your music

Here is a metal song that I think you can sculpt your artistic vision after

Of course, this doesn't mean you should copy it. But I feel like this song is the natural progression of where you're going.

Happy playing!

I'm not sure I understand the drums in the part starting at 0:11.

Double bass start beat:
1
3
4.5
2.5
4
2
3.5
1.5

So, your pattern is to alternate 2 and 1.5 beats between double bass creating basically a 7/8 feel to the drums, while playing in 4/4. Like, playing with polymeters is cool and all, but all you've accomplished here is weakening the impact of your guitar and making the song feel off. I'd work on actually getting good at writing creative and interesting drum segments before trying to work with polymeters...

Then don't do polymeters xD

Also, I think I've asked this before but what program do you use for recording and is there any bass (guitar, not drum) in this song?

Well, I don't know FL Studio, but I'm sure you can use VSTs with it, so I suggest downloading a free Bass VST to give your song some thickness.

You sound like me with the drums lmao, I was making double bass way too fast.

I made this 4 years ago
https://soundcloud.com/ascenttozenith/kb-steps

The crazy double bass reminds me of that.

Also I'm going to mess around with your song.

Reaper is the best, man.

I've been trying to work on my mixing lately and I'm a fucking disaster, but the program is still killer.
