Satch Boogie has Met his Bane Dead Player
We all know this song. Infact, if you need an introduction, you have probably lived under a rock without rythm video games for the last 4 years.

And wouldn't you know it, it is just as awesome (to play that is) as ever, but now even harder.

The song is a 7 minute epic that goes from one pattern to the other and rarley stays at the same riff for more than 30 seconds at a time. The infamous "anchored green to all other buttons" intro is still here though, so beware and get some good practice (or No Fail) before even atempting this madness.

The song also got 5 guitar solo's filled with everything from slower strummed melodies to insane tripplets, trills, snakes and swipes, riffs that goes from blistering fast alt-strums to slower and more rythmic riffs, aswell as having alot of random guitar fills scattered all around to keep things interesting. For it is not a single dull moment here, that is for sure!

Are you up for a extreme challenge that is also alot of fun when you finaly get it down? Or do you wan't to torture your friend's hands? Then this is the song you should choose. But just because you passed Satch Boogie, it doesn't mean you will pass this.

This song is eight minutes of continual punishment for the drummer. For at least 5 of the eight minutes, you will play the same pattern. It is a fast, metal beat (cymbal+pedal cymbal-snare, cymbal+pedal pedal cymbal+snare) that is quite challenging to hit since it is so fast. The only break a player will get from this irritating pattern is a VERY fast drum roll that lasts 3 seconds. As for the other three minutes, you are hitting your crash cymbals every few seconds during the breaks in the song. If you are a drummer, I really can't recommend it. It is long, hard, tiring, and lacks variety. However, I'm just talking to the people who don't have ankles made of steel. For those of you who loved playing Blackened or any Anthrax song, you'll probably think a 4 or 5 would be a more accurate review.

Normal People: DON'T BUY THIS
Insane People: Consider it a new challenge. Buy it.

Through the Fire and the Flames - A Vocalist Review Xtreme Nights
Alright, we finally get Through the Fire and the Flames on Rock Band! But is it good on vocals? I would say it's not really that fun on vocals, but the rest of the instruments are fun! What makes this song boring on vocals is the fact that there isn't many pitch changes and the fact that the song gets repetitive. It is an awesome song to sing along to, but when it comes to actually singing it, something just makes it boring. Like I said earlier, it's probably most because of not many pitch changes. Compared to Operation Ground and Pound, this song is boring, I think that's why I found this boring, because I am comparing it to that. It can still be fun, but at the same time boring, depending on how good of a vocalist you are. If you are good, then it probably will be a piece of cake. This song also throws a lot of Cowbell notes at you, so be prepared for some quick tapping!

What is my final review on this song? As epic as the song is, I personally find it a little boring compared to OGaP. The phrases last for awhile and pitch doesn't change much. I will give this song a 4 star, it still gives out a bit of fun if you are playing for the epicness of this song and the cowbell also gives you excitement. The song though should be really fun to the casuals. The song is also epic, so that raises the rating.

Added NOTE: I played the harmonies by myself though, they are super fun, my review above is for the single vocal track.

It has its moments. TSW
This is NOT a review for pro keys.

That being said, it's mainly RYO and RBO chorded sustains. There are some sweet spoots, like the verses and outro, however the only problems are the ending of the intro and the beginning of the bridge. Nobody can hit that clusterf*ck that is a chart.
