Lots of Potential
I definitely like all the things you say the song already has...I love the chord progressions and the way the song starts soft and grows progressively louder at the start. The only thing I see is that around the 1:00 mark the song starts to get a bit boring. However, you already said the song lacks a melody so adding one should take care of that issue. Overall I see a lot of potential...Once you finish this I think its going to be awesome! Keep it up.
