I know I'll get a LOT of hate for this, but I make original metal-dubstep music. It's for fans of both Opeth and Skrillex(do these people exist aside from myself and my circle of rl friends?). Give it a shot. You'll all probably fucking hate it.
Sorry but all I hear is dubstep. Yeah, over 90% of people here will probably hate it, but that doesn't mean it's bad. It's just in the opposite side of the spectrum where metal is. It's like convincing people who only love Coke that Pepsi is better, and the opposite. I say, kudos to you for having the balls to try to unite them, and you obviously have talent, but I feel that even if it can be done which I doubt, one party will always hear the one side that annoys them the most.
Man that sounded way too negative. What I actually meant to say is, obviously it's good, but metalheads at least probably won't like it (at least the purists). Don't worry about them too much though, there are probably many people who will love it.

However, I disagree about dubstep being on the opposite end of the spectrum as metal. If you listen to any dubstep song closely enough, it's just metal music played on electronic instruments rather than guitars. Seriously! I think it's a shame that a lot of metal fans don't realize that, but that's the ENTIRE reason I fell in love with dubstep. It's death metal that you can dance to.
I'm not really a fan of the music, but the production techniques are pretty good.
I would add more to the intro(some short sounds to make it more interesting) but it's short so I guess it doesn't matter. Would also fix the stereo image, as in put the bass mono because like this it sounds like it's all over the place.
The mix sounds kind of messy during the guitar solo part with the snare and stuff.
I would also tone down some high frequencies, I guess you used some kind of exciter/tape saturation? Or maybe it's from the song you sampled from, can't say I know which metal song it is.
Generally, I prefer a cleaner mix, but obviously it's hard to get one if you put a metal song in it since all of the not super high production quality metal songs are messy as hell.

Btw, I'm in noway saying that the song is bad, it's actually pretty good.

After listening to a couple tracks, it's definitely different than their past two releases. It's most definitely most atmospheric with a less depressive feel to it, it does seem like they're kind of moving towards post-metal. Also a much greater use of clean vocals it seems, so that also gives it that feel.
But listen to it for yourself if you haven't
I think it's quite obvious that there's metal mixed with dubstep. For instance; the intro to "2012" was heavily inspired by Nevermore and Children Of Bodom. There's even sort of an 80's-style bridge in the middle of the track.
If you listen to "Machine Beast", it has a death metal intro complete with a short burst of blast beats. The outro to that song is also extremely oldschool death/black metal.
Not really sure why you're struggling to hear the metal in my metal-dubstep music. Check out "Drunk As Fuck', for instance, and explain to me how that doesn't have metal in it.
I went out of my way to make damn sure these tracks were "metal enough" for metal fans, while still being dance-able and have a broader appeal to the electronic dance music crowd.
