What’s better than one awesome album release? Two awesome album releases! With multitracks! And exclamation points! Wow! YOU PAID FOR THE WHOLE SEAT, BUT YOU’LL ONLY NEED THE EDGE! (Actually, you didn’t pay for-…you know, let’s just get to the blog post.)
This week our resident Queensrÿche fanatic (and customs authoring machine) farottone drops another multitrack Queensrÿche album on your head, accompanied by a blistering four-pack of instrumental songs from DeathThreatUK. The Empire songs join “Silent Lucidity” from official DLC, “March of the Crabs” joins an entire Anvil 3-pack from official DLC, and Steve Vai has all kinds of RBN songs. It’s a very heavy week, so strap on your arthritis-protection wristguards and get ready to shred!
Why should you download these songs?
- Empire – farottone sez:
Queensryche’s multiplatinum release that has made two appearances in the rhythm game franchises: Silent Lucidity in Rock Band and Jet City Woman in Guitar Hero. Great mix of metal and rock, it’s got amazing vocals, catchy riffs and great quality stems: for the band that can do without the keyboards. Did we mention that the whole thing features full multitracks?
- Instrumental Insanity C01 – All four of these songs are labeled as Metal, but they run the gamut of difficult instrumentals. “March of the Crabs” is a classic-rock-y high energy rocker; “Y.R.O.” is a slightly prog-sounding number with crazy difficult “HOPOcoasters” on guitar; “Narita” (released in Japan by an American band) is heavy but upbeat rock with catchy riffs; and “Speeding” is, well, a Steve Vai song. There’s something here for the thrill-seeker on any (non-keys) instrument.
See you next Friday!
