Also there will be no 2x bass pedal version of this song as it's slow enough that we were able to chart all the bass kicks on the regular version.

Devin Townsend - ZTO :
Devin Townsend - ZTO (2x Bass Pedal) :
This is the opening track to the Ziltoid album where Ziltoid makes his presence known to Rock Band players around the world by beaming himself directly into your game console. Doing so has 'broken' Rock Band in strange ways. Such as causing the camera, lighting, and characters to behave in strange and unusual ways. Breaking the gameplay by producing vocals that shouldn't be there and other shenanigans. Proclaiming that Rock Band is a game for 'nerds', he challenges the players to play through all the tracks of the album and convince him that Rock Band isn't a waste of time. To do so you'll need to 'beat' each song and show Ziltoid that Rock Band does in fact rock.
Oh and you better hurry it up and bring him his damned coffee while you're at it!

Septicflesh - Anubis
Septicflesh - Anubis (2x Bass Pedal)
SEPTICFLESH recorded their sixth full length album for "Season of Mist". The yet untitled album was to contain all the elements that made the sound of SEPTICFLESH so unique: pale, strange guitar melodies, brutal and sharp riffing, the devil behind the mic, and of course the neoclassical arrangements that are Chris Antoniou's trademark.
To get that result, Chris the "gothic maestro" tortured a full orchestra and a choir respectively composed of 80 musicians and 32 singers! The rest of the album was recorded and mixed in what has become the temple of their past two musical rituals. Yes, once again they chose to invade the famous Fredman studios, with Fredrik Nordstrom.

Vangough - Estranger
Oklahoma City based powerhouse Vangough may be named after a post-impressionistic artist, come from a conservative bastion of the U.S. and draw inspiration from heavy guitar driven 90's prog-rock metal bands like Dream Theater; yet driven by the explosive, cutting edge vision of guitarist and lead vocalist Clay Withrow, the band's incisive and infectious songs - 13 of which appear on Vangough's critically acclaimed indie debut Manikin Parade - and intense energy requires adjectives far beyond words that describe mainstream artists. So here's an opening attempt: committed to drawing listeners into their melodies before totally upending the tea table, they spit fiery madness by drenching your ears with a purple sunrise of melodic cocaine and a not-so-subtle approach to reading you the story behind today's headlines
