The above Guitar Hero II song, “The Beast and the Harlot” by Avenged Sevenfold, has given Jen and me a world of trouble (and hand cramps, and finger fatigue, and piles of joyous ecstasy after a job well done and five stars earned). Over the last year, we’ve built a love/hate relationship with the band, and it’s almost like we’ve completely forgotten that their music is ghastly.
We’ve just learned that not only does the band have a new self-titled album on the horizon, but that fans can customize and upload their own guitar solo for the single, “Almost Easy.” One solo will be chosen and its author will win zzZZZzzzZZZZzZZZzzzZZan autographed guitar and chance to meet the bandzzzZZzZzZz.
We love this idea; in fact, we’d love it even more if some Amazian were to write the solo of solos, submit it to Avenged Sevenfold without barfing, and win it all. The solo could actually end up being so fricking good that the track would have to be re-recorded and sold as a special edition release with the new solo included. It would be this re-recorded version that would eventually be picked up for inclusion in Guitar Hero 4, and as we tickled the tips of our digits over its melody we would glean power from its Asianness. Oh my god, we think we’re slobbering.
So, my friends… whaddya got? We’re ready. Bring it.
