I took an old instrumental of mine and blended it together with the voice of Vel Koz from League of Legends. The sample you hear in the beginning is from In The House, In A Heartbeat by John Murphy.

Vel'Koz! Pretty cool track. Definitely darker than I'm used to but I can appreciate the experimental nature of it :)

I like the somewhat furtive, atmospheric beginning. The vocals add a lot to the piece, but sometimes the way you chopped them up came across as a bit cheesy. Also, from around :35 to 2:10 (and during other sections), the piece was pretty repetitive, minimalistic, and directionless. I don't think the piece in general needed to be almost 6 minutes long. The instrumentals in the background would be nice accompanying an animation or something, but as a stand-alone piece it fails to keep my attention, unfortunately. I also wasn't a huge fan of the stop-start transition at 4:43. Sometimes those can work well, but after a relatively structurally flat section before it, it was a bit jarring. That said, the production quality here is really high. I can hear everything clearly throughout, and the balance is appealing. I'm also a fan of the distorted vocals at the end. I would suggest trying to bring out an atmospheric, pensive mood more here, using more reverb and distortion on the vocals and maybe some pads to give the piece a drone-like quality. Either way, this is a pretty solid piece. Keep at it, man! ;D

Giving you a listen. The velkoz sample is a cool touch, but pretty aggressive in the mix. Consider lowering the volume and maybe toning it down. Velkoz is great for carrying a game, but I don't think he has the ability to carry a track, Try replacing the multitude of velkoz samples with a lead melody to go over the 28 days later sample. Use the original track as reference, Murphy uses a heavy guitar riff that plays along with the main motif, which then becomes that "iconic" sound.
All in all, not a bad track. Keep at it!

Thanks for the advice!
