Tears Don't Fall
Scream Aim Fire
The first time I'd ever heard this song, or any Bullet for My Valentine, was in Guitar Hero World Tour. I thought it was absolutely horrible and I never played it again. This is essentially the first time I've played this song since 2008. I learned that my feelings toward this song have not changes at all in 4 years. With that said, the guitar part wasn't completely horrible, it definitely had it's moments. Sadly, those moments were few and far between. For the most part this song just screams difficulty whore. The worst part is, whenever you go online now, all your setlists are going to be this and Beast and the Harlot. Like Tears Don't Fall, the bass is a massive improvement on guitar. For many of the same reasons as well. It's difficulty is toned down from the guitar significantly and as someone who can't FC Raining Blood while sleeping drunk, it's nice to have something that isn't über difficult. The drums on the other hand, ARE über difficult. How they got away with being just tier 5 is beyond me. Everything about this is difficult, from the quick blasts on the pads to the awkward timing of the bass pedal nothing here is to be attempted by the faint of heart. Sadly though, I did not enjoy the drums.
Again, not a great guitar part. It wasn't completely terrible, but it just wasn't fun. There's a section at the beginning that lasts for about a minute that's reminiscent of a slowed down Through the Fire and Flames. While I personally dislike these songs on guitar, I'm sure that the fans of this type of music will love them. This, like the other two songs, has a better bass part than guitar part. Just like the other two, the reason why this bass part is superior is because of the fact that it's difficulty is toned down. Gone is the ridiculous Slow TTFaF intro and it opens up something that's actually fun to play! It's rather enjoyable actually! Drums were terrible on this song. The pattern was odd and not once did I feel as though it was an enjoyable part to play. It has nothing to do with the fact that it's hard, it has to do with the fact that it's boring as hell.
