Hey! This is my piece called Screw the Violin! for 2 Violas, 2 Cellos, Double Bass, Marimba and Percussion! It has lots of Metal/Djent idioms splattered around!

You can listen to it in the soundcloud link! Hope you enjoy!

I appreciate the attention to detail in the score. 
It's thematic and does its job well in that regard but there are other keys than G minor. This felt a little bit too safe staying in the tonic key. I know you said the emphasis is on rhythm, but that doesn't mean harmony can't be equally important.
Also, that ending is extremely pointless to me. It didn't start like that, so why end like that? It's not like Mahler. 
Well done.

Thanks for your response!

True, I think I started focusing on rhythm too much and then didn't give enough attention to the harmony. I think the ending was just something that I really wanted to do - you hear certain repeats of melodic material in a softer, and almost 'sweeter' fashion in Djent pieces (E.g. Polyphia)

Thank you!
