So, my friends completely rocked the house at our school talent show. I need something to top it, definitely metal, but some type of accessibility if possible. My friends band is a lot like Slayer, like REign in Blood Slayer, but you can't really hear what Hanneman is sayin. Ne1 have suggestions?

take a couple songs, and mash em all together, play 30 seconds from each and make them flow from one to another, if you can get that your gold. otherwise if you want accessibility oops i did it again by children of bodom has to be on your list.

Actually, Dragonforce might not be a challenge if you approach it right. Take Through The Fire And Flames. The verse/solo progression is only 3 power chords, and I believe there are only 5 or 6 different chords for the entire song. I'm not talking about the leads, of course. You're on your own with that.

If you want to play it note for note, Fury Of The Storm is actually a managable song. Hell, I know how to play most of it.

HOLY DIVER

for all that is sacred, play this song

EDIT: Killswitch Engage version.
Quote by 6079 Smith W
One time I had this chick setting on my lap, sucking on my neck, unbuttoning my pants when one of my friends walked in and ruined the whole thing. To be fair though, she was his girlfriend.

Shoopin' that whoop since before you were born, son.

OMG you people are so stupid. Play a song that is generic at a talent show, and you will never win (unless it is Freebird). If you don't have a singer, DEFINITELY do not try to cover a song with vocals.

Everyone at my school likes ****ty bands like All Time Low, Fallout Boy, Dance Gavin Dance, etc. Playing Pantera, Metallica, Megadeth (except Hangar 18) would be just looked down upon. You need something that will get in their sucky guitarist's face and destroy their massive ego like a pure lead guitar instrumental.

Some examples, are Concerto by Cacophony, Far Beyond the Sun by Yngwie Malmsteen, Scarified by Racer X.

If those are too hard you could do something that is easier like Canon Rock or Maggot Brain.

dress in matching suits, speak with a lisp when you introduce your band, then BAM play some cannibal corpse.

If you actually want to win and be popular without "selling out", do a poppy classic rock song. Boston or the like.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

Here's one that I've used a few times. Play Dammit by Blink 182. Everybody knows that one. Then, during that slow part, around 2:06, turn it into a freestyle jam. If you do it right, it will sound badass. Especially when you go back into the main riff of the song.
#34
Well, for the talent show here I'm using the school choir and string ensemble and playing Power of the Dragonflame by Rhapsody

Or Sea of Lies - Symphony X.

Or, i second HOLY DIVER!

I suggest "Rock you like a hurricane" in nearly all of these threads. This is no exception.

a starter would be hearts on fire by hammerfall

EDIT2: youre playing on your own right? if so, scratch that^ far beyond the sun is the only way to win
