I'm looking for HONEST feedback about this composition in terms of music, mix, and overall feel. Would really appreciate your time looking into this! Thank you.

I love it.
This sounds very professional!

The music flows like an elegant river. The chord progressions are dramatic and powerful.
Your choice to combine electric instruments and strings is very well-thought and the combination works perfectly.
Moreover, the sound effects such as the wind support the atmosphere very well.
For me one of the major functions of music is that it has to move people. When it does not move people, the music is not good enough.
Your music moves me. Why I also voted for 'action' is because this composition could be used for a film scene, in which a hero dies or the world is saved from a tremendous disaster.

To be honest, I have no critique points.
You have done a great job! Well done.

Generally okay. Sticking to a iv - i chord progression was kind of boring after a while, so I'm you changed it up in the end just a little bit. The other thing about that is having a piece entirely consisting of chords got kind of heavy handed too. The clave rhythm was a little clichéd as well.
In the part with the midline guitar riff, using the leading tone kind of threw me off, especially in your iv chord because it doesn't actually leading to any common tone in your i chord. Since G# minor is such a black key heavy key, it's good to know where those are.
Dark Matter is definitely not something I got out of this, even in the end with the sound effects. I always think of it as the absence of something, so this was definitely not that. 
It's a cool little piece with some nice changes, overall.

First of all, this is wonderfully engineered. The samples, mixing, everything is on point. It never feels too crowded. On the composition side I think that I can’t add a lot to what was said before.

I personally would associate it more with some « dark », maybe deranging stuff (possibly because of that guitar). It wouldn’t make me think of dark matter if you hadn’t mentioned it, but it’s such an abstract and new idea that nothing would probably make me think of it.

From a soundtrack point of view : depending of the what the scene conveys, if a feel of growing danger/tension matters most etc then it could be action music as well (I’m thinking about a few scenes in 28 weeks later or inception).

I like it a lot, it’s a joy to listen to and there are moments after the initial buildup that really speak to me. Great work!
