Ok, I know its technically electronic music, drum and bass to be specific, but my lord they're amazing! Plus they use drums, guitar and have vocals aswell. I know not all of their stuff is suitable for the games format, but Ill suggest a few.
One thing I think would be perfect is during the synth parts where it looks like the guy is using a Rock Band controller, he doesnt appear to be strumming so that can be a solo where you use the higher frets
If you want to hear their studio tracks and more songs check out their myspace page! http://www,myspace.com/officialpendulum
I realize that these songs probably wont work from some reason or another and that it wouldnt be the album cuts used as they are not as elaborate as these but hey, a guy can dream cant he?
Besides, if people are mentioning country, I certainly think I can mention this! lol
