“IF YOU AIN’T WITH US, YER AGAINST US”
Dear artists: If you’re looking for
clever ways to market your presence on the Rock Band Network, Cleveland post-hardcore outfit Affiance is
about to drop some knowledge on you.
If there’s a better way than this to let your fans know they can play your songs on Rock Band, we have yet to find it. If you like what you hear, pick up “Call to the Warrior,” now available on RBN for the Xbox 360!

ATTENTION EXPERT GUITARISTS AND DRUMMERS! BE THE FIRST TO FC “CHASING THE LIGHT” BY NAUTILUZ ON GUITAR OR DRUMS TO WIN online viagra 1600 MICROSOFT POINTS
That’s right, plastic virtuosos, we’re calling you out. If you think you’re the baddest of the bad, we want you to PROVE IT. Become the first person ever with a documented FC (full-combo) run of the face-melting opus “Chasing the Light” by power metal group Nautiluz, and take home some sweet prize money. The first person to record and post an FC on Expert difficulty for guitar or drums will each receive 1600 Microsoft Points courtesy of your friends here at RockGamer Studios.
Sure, you may have never heard of Nautiluz unless you’re a fan of Peruvian metal. But then again, many gamers had never heard the word “DragonForce” until we hit the end credits of a certain game involving guitars and heroes.
If you are a fan of ridiculously fast power metal, then you are in for a VERY pleasant surprise with Nautiluz. The newly formed group from Lima, consisting of Jorge Segersbol (vocals), Diego Chacaliaza/Alonso Rodríguez (sharing lead guitar duties), Alvaro Paredes (drums), Renzo Huánuco (keys), and Diego Shiguemura (bass) wasted no time after their formation in November ’09, and promptly recorded their first original single, “Chasing the Light.”
Hugh Cornwell has been a staple of the Rock and Roll scene since before the vast majority of Rock Band players learned how to say ‘Peaches’ (The Stangler’s first hit). An illustrious songwriter and never-tiring performer, Hugh Cornwell is a legend.
According to his online biography, Cornwell had “ten hit albums and twenty-one top forty singles”
while fronting the incredibly successful UK band The Stranglers.
Let yourself become entranced by lead vocalist of Inkubus Sukkubus, Candia, as she weaves a tale of unrequited, yet dangerous love. In her powerful, yet soothing voice, she sings such lyrical wonders as, “Your
skin against my lips feels alien to me, a stone with softness yielding unnaturally.”
The “Death Comes” drum track is pretty straight-forward. Its slow rock vibe is accessible to many levels of drum players. So, for those of you dreaming of playing drums for a famous Goth band, get this!
So far, Damone’s “Roll the Dice” has been one of my favorite RGS songs. Noelle’s honest vocals are fun to sing along to and Mike’s guitar riffs are always entertaining.
There is just something uplifting and poignant about this song. From Noelle’s heartfelt lyrics to the overall build and craftsmanship of the song, “Roll the Dice“ is a team favorite. In the chorus Noelle sings, “Place your bets, roll the dice, don’t dwell on your sacrifice, your winnings start over.” Life truly is an inspiration for this band.
“Hook, Line & Sinner” by PA-based hardcore group Texas in July is guaranteed to be a hot seller, but (spare me while I make this joke) the drum track for “Hook Line & Sinner” is on fire.
… but can you do this?
Cetan Clawson can, and “White Heat” will be available for RBN the day the store launches.
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so call up The One That Got Away, and rock your way back into his (or her) heart by singing The Gufs’ “Beautiful Disaster.”
Back in October, we announced that veterans of the Wisconsin music scene, The Gufs, were working with RockGamer Studios to bring their music to RBN.
Now, we are excited to announce that the single “Beautiful Disaster” from their 2006 album A Different Sea, has been submitted to RBN for playtesting, and should find its way to the Marketplace in the near future.
Here’s a preview clip to whet your appetite.
