I was tricked by the bass line even after listening two times to the MP3. I now see in Modplug that generally the rhythm is 4/4, but with a few unpredictable snare hits. There is also the brief melody with instr. 18 (patterns 11-13). An obvious note about it is the lack of effects in the pattern window and the abscence of adjustment of the instrument's sound (e.g. volume envelope). However, I guess this is quite conscious given the track title and the theme, and if you were to revise this, the song could indeed appear less mechanical.

The total impression is quite positive, I find that the varying sounds that appear here and there, as well as the creativity combined with the simple, yet tricking, rhythm contribute to the song lasting longer (takes longer for the listener to grow tired).

(The track has played constantly for 28 minutes in Modplug and I'm only moderately tired of it)

thanks for the listen and liking it. Being able to put up with it for 28 minutes is not at all expected.

If I remember right many of the Korg sounds can be found here:

I'm listening to the XM version -

Sounds wierd but interesting! It's not really something I can enjoy, but it's not bad. I would probably give it a 7.0ish out of 10.00! BTW, what's that a picture of?  :)
