Results GQ4: Deguello - Round 4

Really now.....the songs were:
  • Song 196: Iron Maiden - Phantom Of The Opera. When playing dual guitar lines it's important that both guitar tracks are completely in sync. Otherwise it might sound like the ascending tremolo run here.......
  • Song 197: Van Halen - 316. Very famous instrumental by Van Halen, named after the birthday of Eddie VH's son Wolfgang.
  • Song 198: Gary Moore - Out In The Fields. Awesome song by Gary Moore, from the time when he was a rock guitar monster. The version where Phil Lynott sits in on vocal and bass is just astonishing.
  • Song 199: Metallica- Sad But True. The best version of this song is called "American Badass" and was recorded by Kid Rock. Also Sad But True. Man did we have to play this snoozefest (from a guitar player's standpoint) of a song often back in teh 90's...
  • Song 200: Iron Maiden - The Prisoner. From "The Number Of The Beast"- great tune, and it really hauls ass at about 195 bpm.
One of y'all really came through in this round, leaving everyone else in the dust, as can be seen from the Round 4 scores:
  1. Torbjørn (6 points)
  2. Marius/Pigeon (tied at 4 points)
  3. ...
  4. Cathy/Sondre (tied at 2 points)
  5. ...
  6. Anders (who scored a big, fat zero in this round)
The Total Score
now looks like this:
  1. Sondre (22 points)
  2. Pigeon (20 points)
  3. Torbjørn (19 points)
  4. Cathy (16 points)
  5. Anders/Marius (tied at 14 points)
Congrats to Torbjørn
and good luck with round 5!

Yeah, that was what I was trying to say, but you're so much more articulate then me.

So, when is the first straight round coming up? Metal is so gay...

...like the man said, that's hardly news. Doesn't change my opinion of the hyped-up, wannabe-evil, corpse-painted attention whores that make up Gorgoroth.

Rob Halford?

I really don't care about the sexual orientation of the band I like, but I bettinmg that some metal-fan will be shocked by this. I'm just waiting for the first open gay musician in mainstream US country.

.......rap music is an even better example of a homophobic and sexist genre.

Wilhelm said...

...besides, there's always someone out there who's just waiting for an opportunity to be shocked and appalled by pretty much anything

I listened through a hellovalotta Maiden songs to come up with these titles, but I only found songs with other names.

Wilhelm said...

Torbjørn said...

I listened to a few Maiden songs, but could not find the correct ones.
