Best RBN Song Yet HGinCT14
Being a BtBaM fan means I do bring some biases to the plate, but that doesn't change the fact that this song is the perfect blend of crazy difficulty and wonderful variety. Everything from the simple 4/4 drum beat to 200 bpm blast beats litter this song. That doesn't even include they dozens upon dozens of different fills in the song.

This is why we want Prog, and this is why we love BtBaM.

Prog Metal FTW

10 minutes of pure epicness! MetalSmasher86
With a song 10 minutes long, you would think this song would slow down and ease up from time to time. But in this case, you would be wrong.

This song combines fretting and strumming skills at different speeds ranging from moderate to very fast. There does not exist one slow, boring section in all of 10 minutes.

Probably the highlight of the song is the first solo, which starts out nice and easy and then kicks your ass the last 30 seconds.

For a fun time, please download this song now.

Between the Boring and Me PuppetMasterIX
Though I am not naturally a fan of singing growling, I can see the usual appeal of it, since practicing the various kinds of growling and screaming can be entertaining if the vocals are paced well enough. Sadly, that is not the case with Obfuscation.

Almost every phrase in the song consists of talkies. The main problem that arises from the singing how the lyrics are structured. The talkies are either ridiculously elongated sequences of two to four words, or faster sequences that lack any sort of consistent rhythm. Everything feels fractured and unintuitive, which makes the song an unenthusiastic bore, even when you're imitating the singing style.

There are three phrases in the song that do have pitches; however, these are no saving graces, as the three phrases are completely identical (minus the difference in key between the first and second/third phrases).

Overall, this nine-minute song is simply not worth a vocalist's time. The talkies are either overlong and/or inconsistent, and the pitched breaks are lacking. If you had to purchase a growling/screaming song that is great for instrumentals, then yes, this would be an easy recommendation, but if you're more focused on having a fun song to growl or scream along to, this is one that should be avoided completely.

Great, but the Guitar is better. Dead Player
Not surprisingly, this is a blast to play on everything instrumental, and the Bass is of course no exception.

Here you get alot of variated riffs, some Ho/Po's thrown in here and there and all that good stuff. The problem though is that during the bridge you must play the same boring riff over and over again for about 2 minutes.

Still, you should be able to survive the bridge to play the rest of this masterpiece. But all in all, the Guitar and Drums are alot more varied and fun, even though the Bass part is great to.

o.o moopuns
I was cautious about buying this song.
Damnit, all that time I wasted that I didn't buy it.

If you are remotely close to play this stuff *Prequel to the Sequel, Panic Attack, Constant Motion, etc.*, DO NOT GET SECOND THOUGHTS.
Actually, this was the first prog song I got five stars on. Nine minutes long... And as soon as it ends, you'll ask yourself: "Wait, that's the end? It could've gone on more!"

I will buy more of their stuff. I now CRAVE it.
