I like the potential of this track. Too bad it ended up being perhaps a bit underdeveloped. Other good points in this track are the drums. I like the snappines of them. Especially the kick would be really good if it had a bit more mid frequencies in it. It tends to disappear a bit behind the bassline now. The snare could have a bit more punch also I think.
I got a bit bored with the background melody. The choice in lead instrument was a bit off imo. It made it all sound a bit too hectic compared to the rest of the track.
This track a kind of cinema feel to it. Could work as part of a soundtrack to a thriller maybe. A good effort, but with some quirks it's not bound to be king of the hill this time.

Nice sounds (tnx Superwave!) does not automatically make great songs... and this is this song's case.
After some quite light intro, we have something that is over repetitive, with a quite poor mixing (get us that bassdrum stronger and give the bass a clearer mix).
The author claims it's his 1st song done with MT2 and well, I don't know if he has experienced other trackers before as this one still show some tracking abilities, I think it is poorly mixed and does not offer any clear build up.
- Look how the best entrants mixed their works.
- Learn from the same entrants how great progressions are built : A song has to take you from a point A to a point B whereas your entry always turns around the same stuff. I think that without superwave, the poorness of this entry would have been felt even more.
Sorry for being harsh, but I think that I have to tell the truth to allow you to improve your tracking and musical skills.
To end up on a positive note I'ld say that the melody used in the intro and... well, everywhere else, works kinda well, but not as a main theme, or the sound should evolve much more than it actually does.
Also something that I'll probably copy-paste 3 billion times within this reviewing process : NAME YOUR TRACKS ! This would give your audiance and us judges a better view of how your track is built, will help newbies to learn how to use MT and to beat you in next year's compo :)
