REAL RASSLIN Dr Sardonicus
And for the last Blitz review, we have the only impossible song in-game, Cult of Personality. I've been looking forward to this in a full band setting for a long time, and now that it's here, it doesn't disappoint.

You start off with the iconic intro riff, which is played as a hammer-on chain that goes G-B-Y-R-Y. This chain manages to be extremely fun, which is good, seeing as how it shows up a lot. Occasionally it expands to a larger ho/po chain going down the fretboard, which is even better. The only break from this is two chords that show up during the "Cult of Personality" section. During the bridge, the chart changes to a really fun section that's just made of playing all along the fretboard. It's really fun, and it changes every time. After this is the first solo, which is hard, but just a warmup for the 2nd.

Afterwards, there's another verse and bridge, followed by the song's 2nd solo. And HOLY HELL. This is easily the hardest solo since Scream Aim Fire, and it's why the song has the impossible rating. It's insanely fun, and the highlight of the song. After the last verse, we enter the breakdown, which is the main riff at a faster tempo, after which the song ends.

Overall, this song is perfect for a music game. It's not as hard as it was in GHIII, but I think that improves the quality of the chart. It may be the best chart in Blitz, and it's definitely in my top 3.
