    "Nemesis" by Arch Enemy is not showing up in the store correctly. You can't even download a demo, let alone the full song.

    Very good week of releases! More Blues is always a good thing :)

    Probably purchase 2, maybe 3 or even 4 this week. :cool:

    Movies was an 'oh that song' moment. If Underoath, Arch Enemy, and Movies weren't $2 each I would've picked up all three, but since they all are I'll pass for now

    On the fence about Honest Bob

    Not really into Metal (and I guess Prog?) so it looks like this is my first PS3 complete pass week from RBN in a while...

    Since the only keys song is a pop-punk song (which really, really isn't my thing), it's a full pass for me as well... but hey, I still have Arctica from last week to be excited about.

    Have to admit the Xbox week isn't really my thing either, although I do like that Ghost Brigade song a lot, it sounds a lot like Katatonia. I'll pick that up for sure if it gets a PS3 release.

    In case you or others are unaware, though it is a pop-punk song, the keys are very fun, and quite difficult.

    We're just happy to add another one to our "Finally able to play our own songs" list. Big thanks to those who purchased the song on the 360 and / or requested it for the PS3!

    And Dawn is just too AWESOME to pass up.
    It's better than Rock Band's Official DLC this week.

    Loving the Ghost Brigade song. It's not exactly what I would call metal, and I found it pretty fun on drums. For those who generally skip all Metal songs, check this out one first : http://youtu.be/LWxm9ApSHEE

    It is now the only Metal song I have from RBN. So I can no longer say I avoid all Metal tracks ;(

    One of my favorite RBN songs. There's a reason I bought it all 3 times.

    They do have a number of much heavier songs. "Into the Black Light" is the only non-instrumental song on Isolation Songs without screamed vocals.

    Now, now... Der_Lex gets it. Just because he has an irrational hate of any form of music with the word 'pop' added to it doesn't mean he deserves such a harsh lecture.

    Needlelanders already have enough to worry about.

    Punk music of any kind, hardcore to pop, typically doesn't have keys. Not trying to lecture, just inform those who may make an assumption based on the genre.

    I suppose that makes us electropunk? :p ...

    I have to say it surprises me when people talk about the keyboard parts to our songs. They were literally a last minute addition. The keyboard part to DOTC didn't even exist until mid way through playtesting. We felt the song looked out of place with no keyboard so we added it into the RB mix, then liked it so much we put it on the cd as well. We're all huge RB fans so when HMX announced the keyboard we decided we needed keyboard too ... Little did we know our keyboard parts would turn out to be some of the most fun parts of our songs :cool:

    I LOVE the intro to Zombies!!! and DOTC has one of the craziest key solos in the game.

    I can't wait for you guys to release more stuff on the RBN (especially the stuff that came out before that needs RB3 versions ;))

    Thanks for the love ... Although the intro to Zombies!! is basically a rip off of "Let It Be" by The Beatles, our keyboardist likes the beatles a little too much :p

    More stuff is on the way I promise, We just uploaded "Little Sister" to playtesting today infact. The RB3 versions are on their way as well : )

    You guys are doing RB3 versions?! I'm glad I held off on buying your old stuff! I discovered you when Zombies came out (har). I really dug it, but when I went and listened to Dawn of the Condoms, I fell in love. That song is a freaking gem. Very fun on everything and one of my favorite songs I've heard this year.

    Thanks for the support :cool:

    I suppose you could say we will be doing RB3 versions of "Superhero!", "Not My Fault" and "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" but they are actually re-records because we lost the original masters, but that's okay because the re-records all have awesome keys, harmonies and just plain sound more awesome.

    As soon as I get an Xbox, I'll get the tracks by Honest Bob, The Blue News and Go Radio. I'll also check out the prog tracks.

    Downhill is a bit underwhelming compared to the other Rishloo songs drumwise. What a song though, man.

    Actually, there's plenty of pop that I like. Freezepop for example. And tons of '80s stuff. It's actually the 'punk' part that I don't care for. Other than the Dead Kennedys, I'm not a punk fan at all.

    I do admit that the keys chart looks pretty fun, but that doesn't help if I don't like listening to the song at all... nothing personal, wesjett, it's just not my kind of music. For what it's worth, I hope a lot of other people do pick it up, because it sounds like the kind of song a lot of RB players would enjoy if they gave it a shot.

    No hard feelings at all, I'm not a big punk guy myself. I'll do some Green Day here and there but I'm mostly a Modern Rock dude. Maybe we'll win you over with something in the future :)

    This is the best week I've seen in a while.

    For both consoles

    Not the best PS3 week.
    At least for me.
    Ultra Saturday is the best for ps3 there.
