Interesting to see Dynazty take out the round - one of the most powerful vocalists of the current generation - but I never thought of them for this roulette.

I am surprised you didn't know Lethal Tim..........also check out Fire In Your Skin from their full studio album Programmed - killer song.  And if memory serves correct it has better production than the EP from which Jay's track came.

So how are we playing this?............once an artist is mentioned it is banned from here on in?

Oh I've got shit to send.  That's just an ass kicking tune I love.  BTW  Tim did you notice when that song came out?

Jay highly recommended their first two albums. I did like them, so I will check out for sure.

Edit: Awesome tune! :metal :metal

Savatage sent!!

Tim, if this round of songs doesnt convert you, then its over for Savatage and you.  Still mind boggling that they arent a favorite of yours.

I think it's already over jj -  at a guess I would say there are zero Savatage fans that don't like Hall of the Mountain King and/or Gutter Ballet.

Those were some badass boss songs that round.  I'll take the 8.5.

Will send before the day is out. I have condensed the discography down to 12 possible "TAC Approved" Savatage tracks and will have one more listen  ;D

Awesome!

I'd highly recommend that full Dynazty album, if/when you get the chance. As for Savatage, I'll send as soon as possible.

:iagree:

Great choice Nelson.  Tim... at a minimum, get the free version of Spotify, and let that album flood your ears with awesomeness when this is said and done.

That Dynazty song deserves to take out the round IMO, amazing.

A bit gutted to have the lowest score though.

Round 3..Guitar Hero Instrumental Round
The only Guitar Instrumental albums I have belong to Michael Schenker and Uli Roth. I know there are TONS of great albums out there. Let me hear them.  And while Steve Vai is most certainly allowed, please dont send me The Attitude Song. I have that.

Ok, so I have some questions on this round now that we need to start prepping.  Do you want a song from an album/artist that is the guitarist, or is an instrumental band ok (with a kickass guitar contribution)?  Are you looking for the 'named' guitar legends, or is someone current/not relatively known ok?  Are some minimal vocals or spoken parts ok?

Just looking for the guide posts here.

That Dynazty song deserves to take out the round IMO, amazing.

A bit gutted to have the lowest score though.

To be fair 1.5 was the spread.  It's like being tied for last place in the world bukkake competition.  You still gave it your all, and performed like a champ.  Nothing to be ashamed of.  Now go cleanup, and surely you'll beat at least me in this round - you're far more knowledgable with Sava than I am.
