Love or Hate Dead Player
Yup, this is one of those songs that you either have an orgasm every time you play it, or start to twitch and throw up just by thinking about it. And yes, I am one of those who loves it, and let me explain why:

Before I explain the chart I wan't to tell you that this is a very unique song that is like a 3 minute long guitar solo. There is not a single dull moment, and you must be on your toes all the time, and that is what makes it so great. Anyways, the chart:

We start off with out main riff, with notes going in a zigzag patern up and down the fretboard at a relative high speed, and this is what I excpect to be the turn off for most people: it is so incredibly brutal right from the start. Well, I will tell you this: strumming is your friend. Strum every third note or so, that way you will be able to continue even if you miss some of the Ho/po-s.

After about half a minute with a variation of the zigzag riff and some slow alt strums we get another incredibly hard and unusual part, the strumsnake "solo". Here you will play notes all over the fretboard at 16th note speed while strumming, which I must admit is very frustrating... until you figure out the speed and is able to alt-strum it like normal.

After about 20 seconds of alt strums, we get a short superfast strum part with sweeping Ho/Po-s here and there before we hit the bridge, consisting of very slow single notes and chords, that lasts for roughly half a minute to give you some time to recover before the next hard part. Then we get back to the zigzag riff with some variations before we go into the hardest part...

Here, we also get a slow and steady riff, but every 4 beats or so you get assulted with a very very quick wall of Ho/Po's that even a seasoned player might fail out off. Remember that the bridge have alot of Overdrive to save you. And after that, the song ends with a final zigzag riff.

Why love it? It have alot of variation, unique paterns, Ho/Po's everywhere and a brutality unlike any other song.

Why hate it? It is hard as hell, frustrating before you master it and aperantly Death Metal isn't everybody's cup of tea. Still, I do think people overreact when they go all "omg this song sucks so hard!". Try to practice on the song for a few weeks, and when you finaly get it down, you might just discover the fun of surviving an onslaught of notes like this. It's really not that bad when you find out how to hit it.

In other words: If you are a proffesional plastic guitar melter, do not miss this. If you do not possess inhumanly fast fingers though, save it for later when you do get those fingers after a few years of hard practice.


Note: Why not rate it 3 stars if it is a love/hate afair you might ask. Well, the haters rates it 1 without a second though, so why shouldn't the lovers do the oposite thing and rate it 5? The content of the review is the most important thing anyways.

Awesome song, I wouldn't mind paying for it again! OmegaVitaminC
While I'm not a fan of this type of music, I found the drum track to be very exiting. It has some good variety, and lots of movement. It doesn't repeat anything for too long, or have any boring parts. The drum fills are really fun too, but are rather advanced. The ones near the end are especially fun.

All in all, this fast paced song is a must play for anyone with durable arms, and a good sense of timing. I'm sure most people have it since it's free, so what are you waiting for?

I have no idea why this song has such a low score. Maybe people are just angry that they can't survive the fast gravity blasts. Practice makes perfect, people!

I realize how redundant this is, but... m2cks
Just for laughs, I will try to give an unbiased review of this song. Music-wise, this song is equivalent to a busy construction site. It is pure noise, with a mix of cacophony thrown in for good measure. This may seem like a joke, but some people consider even "noise" to be a genre of music, so really anyone using the "noise" argument is rendered voiceless. No, it is not for everyone to enjoy. Yes, it is an acquired taste. No, I do not see in any point in the future where people pull this song/band/genre into the limelight and think of it as highly as other respected genres of rock music. And for that, I can respect Abnormality for their commitment to this...well, this.

I can also thank myself for being mainly a vocalist, for this song on any other instrument would reduce me to a flailing, sweating, screaming-bloody-murder animal. Humorously, that is exactly the kind of mindset one should incorporate in order to really "feel" the mood of the lyrics/chart. As talkies, one must scream the said lyrics to match the female(!) singer, and unfortunately I cannot scream without blowing out my voice (at least I tried, right?) Otherwise, most vocalists would simply talk plainly or whisper the lyrics (or, you know, just shout anything). For that, the fun level is severely limited to those who can successfully scream without bleeding afterward and those who cannot, as is most "blackdeaththrashkillmurder" metal songs.

TL;DR This song sounds loud for the sake of being loud, and thus if you can prove to be as loud as it, you might snatch some fun out of this song. Otherwise, you're better off playing another song.

Cool and unique chart with a trick to mess around with zyyzyyzyy
Hey... pssst... I have a little secret I'd like to share with you about this drum chart. Move one of your cymbals partially on top of your red pad, and go to Chorus 2A and try single-stroking the section of the cymbal covering the red pad where the blasts show up. Also, try this in the other slower blasting sections as well.

You're welcome. It's a cool trick I learned from Tibetian monks.

But anyways, this is a pretty fast song that will test your endurance and fill accuracy with some mini-rolls and blasts, and it does have some drum beats that are actually unique and fun to mess around with. But once you do the little cymbal sandwich secret I just shared, this song suddenly becomes a lot easier and pleasant to play, and Chorus 2A becomes fun, along with most of the other blasting sections. I actually really like playing this song and the trick has allowed me to GS this song. People who don't like this song probably aren't good enough to hit anything in the song, so obviously this chart isn't for everyone, but it's still awesome, especially to good drum players who are into life hacks.

The fast blasts are insane, but apart from those, there's a lot of variation in the song. The kicks are fun (more fun if you use 2 pedals), and the fills are interesting. It's still a mess of a song, but it's fun to play.

Truly This Is Art. Pure Masochistic Art. Gigakoops
A lot of people rate this song lowly either because they cannot play it (understandable) or they hate the song itself (seriously, stop that crap). I rate it highly because the chart itself is highly varied and is the kind of challenge I enjoy.

Now granted, not everyone is going to agree. After all, the song is downright masochistic in every way (unless you play on vocals. Put it in front of an air conditioner and you can get 100% on expert). But every segment of the song offers a different kind of challenge and it never gets dull.
