    It's really heavy, which is a good thing, but the different elements aren't very clear within it: I can't hear them all and they all get lost in each other. I can't actually really judge your sound design at all because there are too many things going on and covering each other: 1.35 almost comes as a relief because you can actually hear stuff.
    The volume keeps varying in the second section and it sounds weird. I don't support you know why?

    You either need to get rid of some things in some sections or do some serious mixing to separate them out.

    That's a good point. I am pretty new to mixing in general, and playing with mastering and adjusting the sounds after they are made. I think I could fix a lot of those problems by focusing on how the mixing progresses throughout the song, rather than a simple "this should work generally" and keeping it the same per layer throughout. Dropping some less-heard layers that don't add much towards the end might help with those issues as well.

    Thanks for the feedback!
