Ready your weapons, because this will be the fight of your life.

This is the seventh track for my album, Magic Conquest! It's a very action-packed piece. Perfect for a battle scene!

TLDR Below.
The track hits hard from the start with good riffs thoughout, very good playing, albeit sloppy at times. Sounds like you played once through and didn't go back to fix mistakes. As you record more you'll get better at precise playing and it will fix your playing.
The drums sound good, probably the best sounding part of the track in terms of studio quality recordings/production quality. On the flip side, I think your guitar tone is quite amateurish sounding, like you've recorded the direct input from your amp or pedal. Have you considered adding a guitar cabinet simulator? Try to find one with impulse responses (IR). Youtube can help you find good, free ones.
The song lacks bass at the moment (as in, a bass instrument). Have you considered just pitching down a simple guitar line if you don't have one? It would really help.
I enjoyed the harmonies, reminded me a lot of classic rock/metal tracks from bands like Iron Maiden and Pretty Maids. Very cool. Takes a lot of work to track that.

TLDR Review at a glance:
+ Riffs
+ Rhythm
+ Drums
+ Harmonies
+ Variation in techniques, rhythm, structure

- Accuracy (playing)
- Apparent lack of bass
- Guitar tone is amateurish

Thank you for reviewing, but I did put bass in the mix. It may be a little too quiet this time though.
