I listened to the mp3 version. Wow, it was actually pretty good. I'd love to hear it recorded for real.

I work with GP5 myself so I listened to that. I always thought that black metal sounds absolutely horrible in that .mid format but I was wrong this time. It is repetitive but it fits partially since the constitutive parts are good and partially because it's black metal after all. I'm impressed by the fact that in a genre that is so full of shit to me something as pleasant and "catchy" (in a good way) can still be made. The single string tremolo picking is awesome and power-chord spamming fits well. The start-and-stop mechanic (reinforced by the rhythm guitar, bass and drums) also works. Everything works.

One suggestion I will make: the last riff which is very good and sums up the score nicely. Add a higher third harmony to the single picking tremolo guitar and instead of making it end with a powerchord (the last bar), make it repeat again the same amount (8bars in total) while adding a fade-out effect. It is a good riff and it can carry it. Especially if you have some haunting lyrics or ambient effects to accompany it or whatever.

Also you could be more adventurous with the bass when it has room to be heard. For example when the guitars stay on a long powerchord for a while, bass doesn't have to simply play the root note of the chord and sustain it identically to the guitars. That note won't be heard anyway. The bass could play some sort of a fill with smaller notes.
