Author Notes

The monster! Cicatriz! This monster of a song features a great groove and a really challenging drum part to play (both in-game and irl). this song features some great guitar work, some great performances all around. The vocals are top notch (as usual). There are great jams and solo that take up the middle of the track.
Personally I enjoy the live version of this track from their live album. The live version stretched this monster to a body-aching 30+ minutes! It's great! It's pure improvisation! And it something I wish more bands would do. I love the idea of taking a song, and using it as a blueprint for a live jam session. Tack down their live album, it's totally worth it!
Now this is legacy only, the long guitar solo is actually two solos played over top each other (with some fancy panning and stuff on the final mix). If you track the "demo" version of this song, you can hear the different solos being panned hard left and hard right. As a result, this custom is legacy only, the keys track is just the normal guitar part but with the second solo, instead of the first.
