Very cool sounding sound samples, but not so much a driving beat when the guitar picks up. And er maybe its me but the synth just sounds out of place. Maybe its high treble setting mixed with the high raised mids of the guitar and drums dont match.
Im confused by what you mean when you say "not so much a driving beat"
And originally I was not going to add the synth in, but after you listen to it a few times it grows on you.
It sounds kind of shitty on guitar.
