    We're proud to announce the second full length album that we'll be bringing from Devin Townsend : Addicted.

    We'll begin working on this one after we're finished with Ziltiod, AND Addicted will feature all the new additions to RBN 2.0 including Keys, Pro Drums, and Vocal Harmonies.

    You can listen to the Addicted album here if you're unfamiliar with it :

    I recommend checking out Bend it like Bender if you haven't heard it yet.
    You just made my week :) ..... times infinity.

    Hope Devin can find some time to work on this. He's a very busy boy at the moment.

    Yeah he's touring AND working on two full albums at the moment. The man is not one to take it easy :)

    Why would he work on two albums at once?

    He's actually been working on all 4 different albums at once, but he finished the first two. Its his way of avoiding creative exhaustion; work on the mellow clean album til he gets sick of it, then go create some brutal metal, then do some party rock/metal to even it out, then hop on the prog train.

    He's not talking about Devin recording his "Devin Townsend Project" albums, he's talking about Devin getting ZTO and Addicted ready for the Rock Band Network. Read the first post, which mentions him tweaking "Ziltoid".

    No I was actually talking about new albums he was working on.

    Didn't realize he was working on all four at once.

    And touring.

    AND tweaking two older albums to get them ready for RBN.

    The man is a machine :D

    Yep; Ki, Addicted, Deconstruction, and Ghost were all worked on at once, Ki and Addicted just happened to get finished first. Guy's nuts.

    I'm not going to lie, I'm very anxious for some Protest The Hero. What's the news on them?

    And yeah, not to be a butt, but I agree with Casto21's suggestion. A little cleaning up on the first post and maybe adding a section of stuff that's in playtesting or out now would be awesome!

    @Joescorpion - The home page of thatauthoringgroup.com has announcements of all the bands we're working with, and and they're already being worked on; you could consider those confirmed. The first of those tracks, "Stereo Stereo" by IAMKINGTONY, should hit the pipeline probably within the week. On top of that, there are currently... 7(?) tracks already in playtest that we've worked on. Needless to say, TAG will be coming soon to the RBN Store!

    Firstly, Noble had to take a step down from taking care of things around here. I won’t go into details; if he wants the world to know, he’ll post here probably. So anyway, he asked me if I’d be interested in stepping up to the plate, and I obliged. So here I am. Hi.
    Hmm, what's going on at tag? Haven't heard from noble in a while...

    One of my earlier fears with the group has apparently come to pass, but fortunately it wasn't one of the fears that would've sunk TAG.

    From our last conversation, Noble's taking some much-needed (and much-deserved) time off. He may be back, possibly not, but TAG is definitely gonna keep running.

    We're in current talks with UO and Protest.

    Everything is going great, and we're waiting for things to get finalized on the management teams end and then we'll be moving forward.

    It's a long process getting masters and approval from three or four different groups, but so far so good :)

    It's not finalized yet, but the original idea was to start with Bloodmeat (since that has been on GH) and see where the band/label wanted to go from there.

    Grim Reaper is from the 80's? Yes! More old stuff! Not only that, but it sounds very kickass! Very good job getting them.

    Sorry for the long delay between updates. Been recouping from my work overload.

    Anyhoot here's the current updates.

    1 - We're in the process of working on the Ziltoid album, and tweeking it to jibe with the Ziltoid attacks and takes over Rock Band that the album has now.

    2 - I know it seems like we don't have anything up and in testing (outside of two songs), but in actuality we've gotten about 13 into the process at this point. However some of the clients we're working for like to keep all the promotion to themselves, so we're not allowed to talk about them at this point. However longtime followers of our news from the original threads should be able to figure out which tracks are ours (that aren't listed under the ThatAuthoringGroup label)

    3 - Not to be a tease (as I really wish we could announce this now), but we're currently hammering out the details to bring one of THE most requested metal bands to Rock Band Network.

    I haven't been this excited since I was a little girl :p

    Hopefully I'll be able to announce something concrete early next week.

    4 - Grim Reaper will be entering into the studio in early 2011 to re-record their classic tracks (such as See You in Hell), to bring them to Rock Band in 2011.

    5 - For those that haven't seen it here's the WORK IN PROGRESS version of Stereo Stereo (there's been a few changes from this version, but we wanted to give you guys a sneek peek :
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqViXlFHt60

    6 - I've got the new pre release Nekrogoblikron album and let me tell you if you guys liked the first album you're going to love this one. We'll have more info on what tracks we'll be bringing from the new album very soon, and look for the new album, and Rock Band Network tracks in first quarter 2011 with full harmony and keyboard support.

    For those of you not familair with Nekrogoblikron here's one of their earlier tracks (this is NOT one of the tracks we'll be working on initially just FYI).

    We'll be announcing more news and updates in the coming days so stay tuned!

    My feedback on this is that Tony's vocals are mixed too low. It's really hard to hear him. The guitar is overpowering. I don't know if this is something you can fix or if it's due to what he gave you.

    Not that there's anything wrong, it's just my pet peeve to see songs listed as being from a year that they aren't (though it's the only way we'll ever see those songs, I know).
