The bad part? It ended!! HGinCT14
Mastodon has been a big request for Rock Band for a very long time,, even more so when Colony of Birchmen was available on Rock Band 2. Blood and Thunder keeps to the drums filltastic nature while not being as difficult as CoB.

The songs big draw is the bridge. Just like the rest of the song, fills are everywhere, and it keeps it interesting and fun.

One interesting thing to note though is that this song is just like Dragonforce in that it was only licensed to Guitar Hero before the series was shafted. More GH tunes are on the way.

This song is AWESOME. This chart, however, is only GREAT. JiggyJay
The guitar chart for this song is very enjoyable. It starts off with a slight strumfest that switches between green notes and green-yellow/green-blue chords. However, the chords are hammer-ons, so your hand never feels that tired from strumming. However, some may find this part awkward when trying to hit those hammer-ons, and if you strum them your hand might feel a slight cramp.
This part ends after around 40-60 seconds and you jump into the chorus, which is simple sustains. You strum the same chord twice, and hold it for a second or two. Rinse and repeat for another round.
After about 2 and a half minutes of those two sections, and you are beginning to feel bored, the guitar breaks into a mess of hammer-ons. They are pretty easy to hit until it breaks into these little fast bursts that might mess up your combo if you are not a great player. This goes on for a good thirty seconds or so, and they are very enjoyable. Add another 20 seconds of fast strumming chords, then the song breaks into the previous two sections for one final go.
While this song is not amazing on guitar, I find it to be quite enjoyable. It may be somewhat repetitive, but the distance between each section keeps the song from feeling boring, while the actual riffs themselves are unique and pretty fun. I would give it a 4.5 out of 5, but because some other players may not like the opening riff or the hammer-on bursts, I'll round it down to a 4 out of 5 stars.
