And the Final Encore of Guitar Hero 3 is....

edited September 2007 in Less Rokk More Talk
Divine Wings of Tragedy - Symphony X. :(

I've never even heard of it.




Here's what drew me to this conclusion. One of the people that played the game says that " it's a song that I have NEVER seen requested or even talked about in relation to Guitar Hero, I've never even seen a custom for it." Another person that played it says "The name of the final encore? It has to do with Dante's Inferno (and no, it isn't the Iced Earth song bearing the same name)."

So I went to Wikipedia, to the page "Dante and his divine comedy in popular culture." I then look under "music." Symphony X is the only band I've heard of on that list. I then went to Youtube and looked at the song. Clocking in at about 15 minutes with some great guitar work, I think it's safe to say that this is the final encore.

Or "The Devil Went Down To Georgia."

comments?

Oh, and here's Through the fire and flames in GLORIOUS HD.

    Thanks for putting that video up in HD. I have had a hard time making out some of the note patters watching it on Youtube but it'll be good to know that it will look that good on my TV.

    On a side note I remember hearing that Number of the Beast by Iron Maiden was the final encore, I could be wrong, and probably the person who mentioned it is wrong too lol, but I distinctly remember someone pointing that out.

    Good for you. Don't turn this into an anti-GH thread when it doesn't have to be.

    That was me <.<

    It was confirmed as the final tier and the devil was the last boss, so I kinda put 2 and 2 together...

    But ImaCarrot, a trustworthy source says that the final encore hasn't been announced.

    Never heard of it, but, since it's the final encore, it should be good and challenging, so, I'm excited to play it. Oh, and thanks for posting the DragonForce video. It's always nice to see that video again. :) Thats one of the songs that I'm most excited for. That song is amazing and so is DragonForce! :D

    Same, I'm really not impressed with that decision, I'm not a big fan of the final encore being something not many people have heard of. I really have lost almost full interest in GH III.

    Oh and here is the song for those of you that don't feel like looking it up on YouTube. It's live and 20 min long or so, the song does not sound that good to me at all, it might be better not live and not on YouTube.

    PART 1




    PART 2

    it doesn't sound good because symphony x sucks. symphony x is "prog" for morons

    Apparently new songs will be announced tomorrow or Wednesday, possibly...I hope they are a lot better than this heh.
  • edited September 2007
    This is not confirmed.

    Hopefully its the Devil went down to Georgia reworked for guitars instead of fiddles.

    I can guarantee such an unknown song is NOT the final encore.

    could be number of the beast, but i think One would be the best fit

    and appearantly you didn't look very closely at that wiki page

    as Radiohead,Nirvana, Bad Religion, and +44 are all mentioned under music, and are well known.

    I'm sure there are a few applicable songs out of those bands that fit the criteria.

    That would be really cool. And if you lose you only receive a slightly smaller, silver fiddle.

    I'm pretty sure the studio version sounds much better.

    I was looking for "Hitler dancing" on Photobucket and I found this wonderful gem towards the end.

    Oh, and here's some other possibilities.

    Inferno - Symphony X
    Tornado of Souls - Megadeth (there was a tornado of souls in the Divine Comedy)

    And the Nirvana, Sepultura, Radiohead, and Weezer stuff just has to do with album covers, not the actual songs.

    actually the sepultura one is an entire album based on the divine comedy

    Either way I'm pretty sure a song by Sepultura won't be the last encore.
