That's pretty sweet right there. Do you have any way to "clean" up the distortion or maybe make it a bit tighter at the beginning. Either way it's sick. Guitar playing is outstanding. I think some high register strings would kick ASS.
Would you mind zipping up the separate tracks as .wav files? I would love to mess around with this and add something. I love the feeling you've got going. Where did you want to take this and would you want to mix genres or stay the same for the whole song?
Also, what key is this in and what's the bpm? Do you think a heavy piano could fit in there? Maybe we could make the intro acoustic and then go into the sick riffs.
Just some thoughts. Nice job!
PS - Joel what do you think about it? What would you have in mind to add?
