Or the thread formally known as the RBN announcement...errr...thread
Like most things in life, these announcement threads are a work in progress. Some things are added, some things are dropped. The only constant is change as someone once said.
So with that we're going to adapt a new title and a new structure for our monthly announcement threads.
We're going to be focusing on three different aspects of Rock Band Network.
The past, the present, and the future.
We'll pull some recomendations from the past for awesome songs you should take a look at if you haven't done so in the past. We'll highlight all the songs we released in the previous month for the present to shine the light on some songs you might have missed in all the releases. Finally we'll reveal songs that we BELIEVE should be hitting play testing during the current month of the thread. (As everyone knows things happen that can delay songs hitting play testing, but that's the plan).
So look for the RBN Past, RBN Present, and RBN Future headings to know what part we're focusing on. We're (TAG), are going to do Past in the morning, Present in the early afternoon, and focus on Future in the late afternoon/rest of the evening.
However some authors only have limited time so they might do it all at once, or at intermittent times of the day.
Or they might follow their own thing and do something completely unique. The only 'rules' here are that we're having a community day for Rock Band Network and interacting with the RB community as a whole.
So with that here's our first RBN Past choice :
Soilwork - Stabbing the Drama :
I hadn't really listened to Soilwork in the past...odd because I'm such a big In Flames fan. However after listening to this song and playing it in game it's quickly become one of my favorite 'new' songs of 2011. I know some people are turned off by the screaming vocals, but it's balanced out nicely by the clean harmony vocals in the chorus. A song that is fast and slow all at once, and a kick ass tune that you owe it to yourself to check out.
If you like the track you can buy it here :
We've got two more Past picks this morning, and of course later today we've got at least four new to RBN announcements to make and some never before seen game play footage of songs about to hit testing.
So keep your eyes peeled (again that sounds like something painful I wouldn't want to be a part of) for announcements from us and other groups through out the day!
