      @Jimmy LeBron I get your point and I have a lot to say on this topic. The riff from this song was just a random riff without officially released tab. Tabbed it back then because people were interested in learning it. Same with the 'No trust' riff and a couple more. It was never my intention to hurt the band. Polyphia is a really technical band and my only intention was to show that everything can be learned if slowed down. I just wanted to motivate people to try and learn riffs that sound impossible at first. I would never buy and share the official tabs for free

    • Jimmy LeBron
      Jimmy LeBron 5 days ago

      I know everyone appreciates your tabs, but doesn't it hurt the band? If they're selling their tabs and that's one of the ways they get income, putting them on Flash-Player for free is kind of a dick move

      Clay (the bassist), like Clay (the drummer), is doing absolutely crucial work here in this song. If it wasn't for him, people would be lost melodically with what the guitars are doing.

    i can't stop playing this on repeat polyphia has seriously leveled up in every way, from their storytelling and music writing to the mv quality and editing. 2 years definitely worth the wait because I'M DEFINITELY HYPED AS HELL. ive had old polyphia songs and even tim's archetype ad music on repeat for a while, so this is the best gift of 2022

      @John Smith why bother comment then? Unless you feel certain genres of music are sacred and should not be meddled with. I’m no expert but what this sounds like to me is modern quantized math rock with flemenco influence. It sounds as harmonious as sonatas by Beethoven to me. I think you aren’t listening, and simply have a grudge of some sort.

    Congratulations!
    You have officially set the standard for a new generation of rockers.
    The number of cover videos is on the rise and pretty soon everybody and their mother will be covering this.
    I predict some Polyphia Copycat bands are already in the making.Within the next couple of years there’s going to be a few generic releases with a similar vibe.
    Just like with the whole trap scene.
    My question is what’s next?
    Who is next?
    What is the future of music?
    Some place somewhere, there’s some kid lurking in the shadows building up his chops.

    • GotMoreSoul ThanASockWithAHole

      I'm totally cool with living in a musical era of the next few years ( or more) that was spearheaded by Polyphia's "adventurousness" (I'm buzzed off brew and that's the best word I can think of right now" that was displayed in this MASTERPIECE of a song. And I say this because it's undeniable that there are now a SHIT-TON of people--who AREN'T heavy into progressive/fusion rock/metal--who are checking out this song AND loving this song--ot are at the least inspired or simply impressed. There will be many who were inspired, but Polyphia can rest easy as an O.G of (of what I predict will be) a new era of progressive/fusion rock/metal as their virtuoso skills establish a bar that no half-assed slackers can half-assededly hop over in their copycat attempts. From here on out (at least for me personally): if a band isn't on the level of Polyphia, Animals As Leaders, or Periphery--and the like--then it will take a lot of beers to get me to pay attention beyond a couple listens.

    The best part about polyphia is their lack of concern for "convention." They take the best parts of some aspects of genres (like the trap bass and percussion) and fuse it with very technical guitar, and then mix in break downs and smooth bridge transitions. Tim is a genius, Scottie is a genius. These guys have a distinct sound that no one else quite has. Love this band from the moment I heard the first song.

      @Mr Cheese He released a drum playthrough vid... it's not that hard a song relatively. The most impressive aspect is just that the drums are so complementary and not overshadowing the rest of the band thanks to a nonlinear approach to writing the drums for this song. Like there are barely any sustained grooves-- it's a very ornamental drum part with several different grooves and flourishes all tailored to their specific sections instead of constantly pushing intensity like most rock drums

      the same, when I have encountered their song, I was really convinced that it was a Spaniard group.

  • Dark violet,Light blue.

    This group has the most unique style in a extremely flaming hot/chill cold way. Like I don't even know if I'm freezing of burning listening to this.

  • stream hello future for clear skin

    these guys don't even look real, especially at the beginning when they're in that huge hall. they look like they came straight out of blender or something. holy fck how is polyphia real. they seriously went from some genetic instru prog rock band in 2016 (as great as muse and renaissance were), to literal GODS. polyphia never gets stale, they're always evolving

    You know something I realy enjoy about Polyphia? The guys ages. Hahahaha. In past times, the logic behind picking great instrumental musicians and play chill skiled pieces as a trio, quartet or something would almost always beeing the idea of at least 35 + years old with teacher looking clothes. Now you see boys playing godly well as a instrumental band. Amazing

    Things I love from this song: the fact that they are accepting they are only humans, but can play god for more than 3 minutes. The fact they somehow show both sides of a god: the badassery in the first part (flamengo inspired) and the absolute calm and confidence in the seconds part (the bossa nova thing with the happy whistling) and then both sides in the same segment (making this trap-jazz-rock hellova ending)
