Gritty (final?)

I've tweaked my track "Gritty" to the point where I'm calling it done.  Somebody at work said I should add a bass guitar, but I'd like a few more opinions.  

As far as bass goes, I did add some low bass drops sparingly throughout the track.

Here's the SoundCloud link:

it makes me a think a little of The Art of Noise - has a similar disregard for genres. A few shades of dubstep too - no idea whether that was intentional though!

Really like the effects on the lead sound just before the end - compressor?

I do have a compressor on the

I do have a compressor on the drum channel, linked to the gritty guitar channel, but that runs the whole track length.  What time in the track are you referring to, I'll take a listen and answer more specifically.

I like how you put it:  "disregard for genres".  Most of the music I listen to is symphonic, power, and a little gothic metal (Edenbridge, Nightwish, Delain, Tarja, etc.) and also dubstep (Going Quantum mixes).  So if that's not a wide interest range, I don't know what it.  :-)  Funny you mention Art of Noise, although I have their album "In Visible Silence", I wasn't even thinking of them when I wrote the track.  (At least not intentionally).
