Just released a progressive rock song

Lately I made this piece of progressive rock music. Normally I make music for my video games, but this is just a single. Yet, who knows, maybe one day it will belong to a game or to an album...

https://soundcloud.com/retream/nothing-or-little-more

The song is mostly instrumental. These are the few spoken lines:
If you build through dazzled eyes
a vision you come to adore,
in the end you'll realize
you're nothing or little more.


Enjoy!

I really liked melody and rhythm. Music like this always puts me in good mood.

What do you use to create music like that?

Thanks, I'm happy my music made you feel good

Here's a copy and paste of the procedure I used for the SkillGrid music (conceptually, it's the same thing - sorry, I don't have time to make a specific and detailed post):
1. on guitar, I composed the two chords progressions the music is built on;
2. on guitar, I adapted those progressions for the crunchy rhythm guitar and the clean rhythm guitar;
3. in the tracker, I composed a minimal drum loop;
4. while the tracker was playing the drum loop, I played and recorded the crunchy rhythm guitar;
5. in the tracker, I added to the music the guitar track just recorded;
6. in the tracker, I gave the drums some more structure;
7. while the tracker was playing the music, I played and recorded the clean rhythm guitar;
8. in the tracker, I added to the music the guitar track just recorded;
9. in the tracker, I refined the drums further, until they were about 80% done;
10. while the tracker was playing the music, I played and recorded the various solo guitars;
11. in the tracker, I progressively added to the music the solo guitar tracks as I was recording them;
12. in the tracker, I (almost) finished the drums;
13. while the tracker was playing the music, I composed the bassline on the guitar;
14. in the tracker, I programmed the bassline according to what I had just found;
15. while the tracker was playing the music, I composed the C64 sounds fills/melody on the guitar;
16. in the tracker, I programmed the C64 sounds fills/melody according to what I had just found;
17. I recorded my voice counting down from 3 to 1;
18. I added lots of reverb to the voice samples;
19. in the tracker, I added the voice samples at the end of the music;
20. in the tracker, I did the final polish work: I refined the drums, fixed the timings, improved the panning of the instruments, composed the coda, etc.
