...then how is the song about parkour? I'm not being mean, I'm sincerely asking how parkour inspired the song.

As far as the instrumental goes it's pretty decent. My main critique is that it's waaaay too long. Maybe shorten it a bit and add some lyrics and we'll see how all goes.  ;)

I listen to a lot of heavy metal too and I love it BUT the thing that always bugs me about metal songs is that they'll go on forever. I'd say cut it down to 5 maybe 6 minutes.

You've got some great guitar parts in there man, I can see this being completely awesome if refined and finished. I'm a musician myself, wish i could help out because i see a lot of potential there.
